New Order – The Him lyrics

Some days you waste your life away
These times I find no words to say
A crime I once committed filled me
Too much of heaven's eyes I saw through
Only when meanings have no reason
They're taken beyond your sense of right

Small boy kneels, wandering in a great hall
He pays pennance to the air above him
White circles, black lines surround me
Reborn, so plain my eyes see
This is the reason that I came here
To be so near to such a person

I'm so tired, I'm so tired

    David Smith
    Ian Curtis, the lead singer and lyric-writer with Joy Division, and the uk's most heart-bursting poet. He killed himself in 1981 because he could not bear the strain of falling in love with someone when he was already married. A true human being, I wish there were more people like him. If you haven't heard Joy Division's two albums (Unknown Pleasures and Closer) and New Order's first album after his death (Movement), do it. And if they don't move you, I pity you.
