In The Barracks Of The Joy Division – Shadowplay

28 March 2014 @ 21:12

In the shadowplay action…

To the centre of the city where all roads meet — waiting for you
To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank — searching for you
I was moving through the silence without motion — waiting for you
In a room with no window, in the corner I found truth

In the shadowplay, acting out your own death, knowing no more
As the assassins all grouped in four lines, dancing on the floor
And with cold steel, odour on their bodies, made a move to connect
I could only stare in disbelief as the crowds all left

I did everything, everything I wanted to
I let them use you for their own ends
To the centre of the city in the night — waiting for you
To the centre of the city in the night — waiting for you
