Joy Division – Something Must Break lyrics

Two ways to choose - on a razor's edge
Remain behind - go straight ahead
Room full of people - room just for one
I can't break out now - the time just won't come

Two ways to choose - which way to go
Decide for me - please let me know
Looked in the mirror - saw I was wrong
If I could get back to where I belong
Where I belong

Two ways to choose - which way to go
Had thoughts for one - designs for both
If we were immortal - we were not there
Washed up on the beaches - struggling for air

I see your face still in my window
Torments yet calms - won't set me free
Something must break now - this life isn't mine
Something must break now - wait for the time
Something must break
