New Dawn Fades

Change of speed, a change of style
A change of scene, with no regrets
A chance to watch
admire the distance
Still occupied - though you forget
Different colors, different shades
Over each mistakes were made
I took the blame
Directionless, so plain to see
A loaded gun won't set you free
So you say

We'll share a drink and step outside
An angry voice and one who cried
We'll give you everything and more
The strain's too much,
can't take much more
Oh I've walked on water,
run through fire
Can't seem to feel it anymore
It was me - waiting for me
Hoping for something more
Me - see me in this time -
Hoping for something else

Great song... but you could have been a little more specific on what this thread is meant to be about :p

A Joy Division thread! :tmb:

I read in Touching From A Distance of how Deborah approached Ian about the meaning of these lyrics and he wouldn't tell her. Shame so many were blind about what he was writing, and only really paid attention once he was gone.

Yeah I guess this could serve as a general JD thread?

Anyway their lyrics were amazing. :tmb:

Very well then :p

My favourite song of theirs is deffinitely 'Dead Souls' - not only is the original brilliant, but it lead to Nine Inch Nails cover which is also amazing. And in 'The Crow' so thats just awesome :D Has anyone seen the movie '24 Hour Party People?' - it tells the story of the rise of this genre of music in Manchester, including Joy Devision - its rather deppressing seeing how Ian Curtis died and so on but great nontheless.

I love 24hour party people, it was a great film... Depressing in bits but funny as heck in others!

The first JD song I heard was She Lost Control. I was amazed and had to buy all there music. It's very dark and brooding music, with lyrics so poetic, without being kitsch like so many 'goth' bands that followed.

The album version of She's Lost Control is a masterpiece. :tmb: The first song of theirs I heard was Love Will Tear Us Apart in a scene in Donnie Darko, but it was She's Lost Control that really had me hooked and I began listening to Unknown Pleasures and Closer.

I'm getting the Heart and Soul boxset for Christmas, which I'm very excited about, aswell as the Torn Apart biography.
