Joy Division At A Later Date

Why must we be put down when we try to get away?

Why must we all grow up when we could just play and play?

Good things in life are free, can’t buy everything, that’s true

Only one thing wrong with that, what it don’t buy I don’t use

Only thing I’m thinking of is “Why are we all here?”

There must be more to do at night than drinking rotten beer

The world’s a very shady place, and you can’t trust a soul

“Grin and bear it” seemed the thing, when it just gets a hold

At a later date – it might come out a fright

At a later date – I hope that you’re alright

Human beings are dangerous and they call me in the dark

But everything gets twice as cold in marching for a lark

There’s loads of things I’d like to do if I could find the time

Working really tires me and I think I’ll turn to crime

At a later date – I hope they start it soon

At a later date – before we hit the moon

I just can’t be bothered to make an effort here at all

People make you feel your contributions are too small

At a later date – I’ll be awful great

At a later date – someone somewhere blew it

At a later date – at a later date
