Joy Division
Live at Paradiso, Amsterdam 11 January 1980

Feel it closing in - feel it closing in
A fear of whom I call - every time I call
I feel it closing in - I feel it closing in
Day in, day out

I feel it closing in, as patterns seem to form
I feel it cold and warm, as shadows start to fall
[or in the Still and Effenaar live versions:
  I feel it closing in, as shadows start to form
  I feel it cold and warm - patterns on the wall]
I feel it closing in - I feel it closing in
Day in, day out

I'd have the world around to see just what happens
Stood by the door alone, and then it's fade away
I see you fade away - don't ever fade away
I need you here today - don't ever fade away
Don't ever fade away
Fade away

Glass
Joy Division
Still (1981)

Hearts fail - young hearts fail
Anytime - pressurised
Overheat - overtired
Take it quick - take it neat
Clasp your hands - touch your feet
Take it quick - take it neat

Hearts fail - young hearts fail
Anytime - wearing down
On the run - underground
Put your hand where it's safe
Leave your hand where it's safe
Do it again
Do it again and again and again

Anytime - that's your right
Told ya we should do it again
Overheat - overtired
Don't you wish to do it again
Anytime - that's all right
Don't you wish to do it again
I bet you wish you do it again
Do it again

In the Genetic demo version the previous verse is replaced by:
  Anytime - that's your right
  Bet you wish you'd done it again
  Anytime - that's your right
  Turn around and do it again
  Do it again - do it again
  Do it again and again and again

Colony
Joy Division
Closer (1980)

The first two verses on the Closer version are as follows:

A cry for help, a hint of anaesthesia
The sound from broken homes - we used to always meet here
As he lays asleep she takes him in her arms
Some things I have to do, but I don't mean you harm

A worried parent's glance, a kiss, a last goodbye
Hands him the bag she packed - a tear she tries to hide
A cruel wind that howls down to our lunacy
And leaves him standing cold here in this colony

The first two verses on the Peel version are as follows:


A cry for help - a hint of anaesthesia
The sound from broken homes - we used to always meet here
I watched all hell break loose, confined and unprepared
Is this what life's about? Is this the dream we share?

Can you help me? Can you spare some time?
No apologies for all these thoughts of mine
I hope to find some friends to maybe lead astray
To wake his daughter's sleep - to turn his father grey

The first two verses on the Heart and Soul live version are as follows:

Afraid to look - afraid to stand behind
Afraid to walk - afraid to fall in line
Hope I find some friends to maybe lead astray
To see what we could find before it slipped away

Can you help me? Can you spare some time?
No apologies for all these thoughts of mine
My brother thought that I could take the blame
Now I stand right here before the greatest game

All three versions then converge for the remainder:

I can't see why all these confrontations
I can't see why all these dislocations
No family life - this makes me feel uneasy
Stood alone here in this colony
In this colony

God in his wisdom took you by the hand
God in his wisdom made you understand
In this colony

Isolation
Joy Division
Closer (1980)

In fear every day, every evening
He calls her aloud from above
Carefully watched for a reason
Painstaking devotion and love
Surrendered to self preservation
From others who care for themselves
A blindness that touches perfection
But hurts just like anything else

Isolation
Isolation
Isolation

Mother I tried please believe me
I'm doing the best that I can
I'm ashamed of the things I've been put through
I'm ashamed of the person I am

Isolation
Isolation
Isolation

But if you could just see the beauty
These things I could never describe
These pleasures a wayward distraction
This is my one lucky prize

Ice Age
Joy Division
Still (1981)

I've seen the real atrocities
Buried in the sand
Stockpiled safety for a few
While we stand holding hands

I'm living in the Ice Age
I'm living in the Ice Age
Nothing will hold
Nothing will fit
Into the cold
It's not an eclipse
Living in the Ice Age
Living in the Ice Age
Living in the Ice Age

Searching for another way
Hide behind the door
We'll live in holes and disused shafts
Hopes for little more

I'm living in the Ice Age
I'm living in the Ice Age
Nothing will hold
Nothing will fit
Into the cold
No smile on your lips
Living in the Ice Age
Living in the Ice Age
Living in the Ice Age...

Dead Souls
Joy Division
Still (1981)

Someone take these dreams away
That point me to another day
A duel of personalities
That stretch all true realities

That keep calling me
They keep calling me
Keep on calling me
They keep calling me

Where figures from the past stand tall
And mocking voices ring the halls
Imperialistic house of prayer
Conquistadors who took their share  …


The only nine inch nails song I’ve ever liked is their Dead Souls cover.
