    : Closer

    Atrocity Exhibition
    The silence when doors open wide
    Where people could pay to see inside
    For entertainment they watch
    his body twist
    Behind his eyes he says I still exist
    This is the way, step inside (4)

    In arenas he kills for a prize
    Wins a minute to add to his life
    But the sickness is drowned
    by cries for more
    Pray to God make it quick - watch him fall
    This is the way, step inside (4)

    This is the way (4) This is the way,
    step inside
    You'll see the horrors of a far-away place
    Meet the architects of law
    face to face
    See mass murder on a scale
    you've never seen
    And all the ones who tried hard
    to succeed
    This is the way, step inside (4)

    And I picked on the whims of
    a thousand more
    Still pursuing the path
    that's been buried
    For years of dead woods and jungles and
    cities on fire, can't replace
    or relate,
    can't release or repair -
    take my hand,
    and I'll show you what was - it will be.

    Be clear every day, every evening
    It calls here aloud from above
    Carefully watched for a reason
    Mistaking devotion and love
    Surrendered to self-preservation
    >From others who care for themselves
    But life as it touches perfection
    Appears just like anything else

    Isolation (3)
    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 (3)
    But if you could just see the beauty
    These things I could never describe
    Pleasures and wayward distraction
    Is this my wonderful prize?
    Isolation (5)

    This is the crises I knew had to come
    Destroying the balance
    I'd kept
    Doubting and settling and turning around
    Wondering what will come next

    Is this the role that you wanted to live
    I was foolish to ask for so much
    Without the protection and infancy's guard
    It all falls apart at the first touch

    Watching the reel as it comes to a close
    Brutally taking its time
    People who change for no reason at all
    It's happening all of the time

    Can I go on with this train of defense
    Disturbing and purging my mind
    I count up my duties -
    when all's said and done
    I know that I'll lose every time

    Moving along in our God given ways
    Safety is sat by the fire
    Sanctuary from these feverish smiles
    Left with a mark on the door

    Is this the gift that I wanted to give
    Forgive and forget's
    what they teach
    I'll pass through the deserts and waste -
    lands once more
    And watch as they drop by the beach

    This is a crises I knew had to come
    Destroying the balance I'd kept
    Turning around to the next set of lies
    Wondering what will come next

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

    I wore a careless glance
    and kissed her last goodbye
    Hands in the bag she packed a tear
    she tries to hide
    Cruel wind that howls down
    to our lunacy
    And leaves him standing cold
    here in this colony

    I can't see why
    all these confrontations
    I can't see why
    all these dislocations
    No, family life just makes me feel
    Stood alone here in this colony
    In this colony (4)
    Yeah, God in his wisdom
    took you by the hand,
    God in his wisdom made you understand (4)
    In this colony (4)

    A Means to an End
    A legacy, so far removed
    One day will be improved
    Eternal rights beleft behind,
    We were the better kind
    You this day met free too,
    I always looked to you (3)

    We fought for good,
    stood side by side
    Our friendship never died
    But stranger ways that froze on highs,
    our vision touched the skies
    Mortal list - the points to prove
    I put my trust in you (3)

    A house somewhere, on foreign soil
    Where aching lovers called
    Is this your goal, your final deeds
    Where dogs and vultures eat?
    Permitted still, I turned to go
    I put my trust in you (4)
    In you, in you, in you
    Put my trust in you, in you

    Heart and Soul
    Instants that can still betray us
    A journey that leads to the sun
    Soulless and bent on destruction
    Struggle between right and wrong
    You take my place in the show-down
    I'll observe with a pitiful eye
    And humble ask for forgiveness
    A request well beyond you and I
    Heart and soul, one will burn (2)

    An abyss that lasted creation
    A circus complete with all fools
    Foundations that lasted the ages
    Then ripped apart at their roots
    Beyond all this good the terror
    The grip of a mercenary hand
    When savagery returns
    for good reason
    There's no turning back the last stand
    Heart and soul, one will burn (2)

    Existence-well what does it matter
    I exist on the best terms I can
    The past is now part of my future
    The present is well out of hand (2)
    Heart and soul, one will burn (2)
    One will burn, one will burn
    Heart and Soul, one will burn

    Twenty-four Hours
    So this is permanence -
    Love shattered pride
    What once was innocence,
    turned on its side
    A cloud hangs over me,
    marks every move
    Deep in the memory,
    what once was love

    Oh how I've realized, I wanted time
    Put into perspective,
    try so hard to find
    Just for one moment I thought
    I'd got my way
    Destiny unfolded -
    watched it slip away

    Excessive flash points,
    beyond all reach
    Solitary demands for all
    I'd like to keep
    Let's take a ride out,
    see what we can find
    Valueless collection of hopes
    and past desires

    I never realized the lengths
    I'd have to go
    All the darkest corners of a sense
    I didn't know
    Just for one moment -
    hearing someone call
    Looked beyond the day in hand
    There's nothing there at all

    Now that I've realized how it's
    all gone wrong
    Got to find some therapy -
    this treatment takes too long
    Deep in the heart of where
    sympathy held sway
    Got to find my destiny before
    it gets too late

    The Eternal

    Procession moves on, the shouting is over
    Praise to the glory of loved ones
    now gone
    Talking aloud as they sit
    round their tables
    Scattering flowers washed down by the rain

    Stood by the gate at the foot of the garden
    Watching them pass like clouds in the sky
    Try to cry out in the heat of the moment
    Possessed by a fury
    that burns from inside

    Cry like a child though
    these years make me older
    With children my time
    is so wastefully spent
    Burden to keep, though their
    inner communion
    Accept like a curse
    an unlucky deal

    Laid by the gate at the foot
    of the garden
    My view stretches out
    from the fence to the wall
    No words could explain,
    no actions determine
    Just watching the trees
    and the leaves as they fall

    Here are the young men,
    a weight on their shoulders
    Here are the young men,
    well where have they been?
    We knocked on doors
    of hell's darker chambers
    Pushed to the limits,
    we dragged ourselves in
    Watched from the wings as
    the scenes were replaying
    We saw ourselves now as
    we never had seen
    Portrayal of the traumas and degeneration
    The sorrows we suffered
    and never were freed
    Where have they been (4)

    Weary inside, now our hearts
    lost forever
    Can't replace the fear
    or the thrill of the chase
    These rituals showed up the door
    for our wanderings
    Opened and shut, then slammed
    in our face
    Where have they been (4)

    Album: Unknown Pleasures

    I've been waiting for a guide to come
    and take me by the hand
    Could these sensations make me feel
    the pleasures of a normal man
    New sensations bear the innocence -
    leave them for another day
    I've go the spirit, lose the feeling
    take the shock away

    It's getting faster, moving faster now,
    it's getting out of hand
    On the tenth floor, down the backstairs
    into no-man's land
    Lights are flashing,
    cars are crashing,
    getting frequent now
    I've got the spirit, lose the feeling, let it
    out somehow

    What means to you,
    what means to me -
    and we will meet again
    I'm watching you, I watch it all
    I take no pity from friends
    Who is right and who can tell,
    and who gives a damn right now
    Until the spirit, new sensation
    takes hold - then you know (3)
    I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling (2)
    Feeling (7)

    Day of the Lords
    This is the room, the start of it all
    No portraits so fine, only sheets on the wall
    I've seen the nights,
    filled with bloodsports in vain
    And the body is obtained
    Where will it end? (4)

    These are your friends,
    from childhood for you
    Who goaded you on demanded
    full proof
    Withdraw maiden's heart,
    and do you right in
    So distorted and thin, distorted and thin
    Where will it end? (4)

    This is the car, at the edge of the road
    There's nothing disturbed,
    all the windows are closed
    I guess you were right,
    when we talked in the heat
    There's no room for the weak
    no room for the weak
    Where will it end? (4)

    This is the room, the start of it all
    Dreamt I fled from you,
    I remember it all
    Oh I've seen the nights, filled with
    bloodsport in vain
    And the body's obtained, the body's obtained
    Where will it end? (4)

    Forced by the pressure, the territory's
    No longer the pleasure, Oh I've since
    lost the heart
    Corrupted from memory, no longer the power
    It's creeping up slowly, that last
    fatal hour

    Oh I don't know what made me,
    or what gave me the night
    To mess with your values
    And change wrong to right

    Please keep your distance
    the trail leads to here,
    There's blood on your fingers,
    brought on by fear
    I campaigned for nothing,
    I worked hard for this
    I tried to get to you
    you treat me like this

    It's just second nature,
    it's what we've been shown
    We're living by your rules,
    that's all that we know
    I tried to get to you (3)
    Oh how I tried to get to you

    Guess the dream always end
    They don't rise up just descend
    But I don't care anymore
    I've lost the will to want more
    I'm not afraid, not at all
    I watch them all as they fall
    But I remember, when we were young

    Those with habits of waste
    The sense of style and the taste
    Of making sure you were right
    Hey, don't you know you were right
    I'm not afraid anymore
    I keep my eyes on the door
    But I remember...

    Tears and sadness for you
    Awe of evil for you
    Reflects a moment in time
    A special moment in time
    Yeah, we wasted our time
    We didn't really have time
    But we remember - when we were young

    And all God's angels beware
    And all you judges beware
    Sons of chance take good care
    For all the people out there
    I'm not afraid anymore (4)

    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 colours, 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

    She's Lost Control
    Confusion in her eyes that says it all -
    She's lost control
    And she's clinging to the nearest passer-by
    She's lost control
    And she gave away the secrets of her past
    And said "I've lost control again."

    And she turned to me
    and took me by the hand
    and said "I've lost control again"
    and how I'll never know just why
    or understand
    She said "I've lost control again"
    And she screamed out, kicking on her side
    And seized up on the floor -
    I thought she'd died
    She said "I've lost control again"
    She's lost control again -
    she's lost control

    Well I had to phone her friend
    to state her case and say
    she's lost control again
    And she showed up all the errors
    and mistakes
    and said "I've lost control again"
    But she expressed herself in many
    different ways
    until she'd control again
    And walked upon the edge of no escape
    and laughed "I've lost control again"
    She's lost control again,
    she's lost control (2)

    To the centre of the city where all roads
    meet looking for you
    To the depths of the ocean
    where all hopes sank searching for you
    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 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 night
    waiting for you (2)

    I traveled far and wide through many
    different times
    What did you see there?
    I saw all knowledge destroyed

    I traveled far and wide to prisons
    of the cross
    What did you see there?
    The power and glory of sin
    What did you see there?
    The blood of Christ on their skins
    I traveled far and wide through many
    different times

    I traveled far and wide where
    unknown martyrs died
    I saw the one-sided trials
    What did you see there?
    I saw the tears as they cried
    They had tears in their eyes!
    Tears in their eyes! (3)

    I walked through city limits
    Someone took me by the hand in the blue
    Attracted by some force within it
    If I could close my eyes,
    I could get used to it
    Around the corner where a puppet lay
    Saw the place where she had a room to stay
    A wire fence
    where children play
    Saw them dance where the body lay
    And I was looking for a friend of mine
    The car screeched in the sand
    and dust
    Feel encouraged -
    just a car on it's side
    Metallic blue turned red with rust
    Pulled it close by the buildin's side
    In a room for forgotten youth
    I could think
    or let my senses slide
    Turned on to a night with you
    Find the place where my friends, won't go
    And I was looking for a friend of mine
    and I had no time to lose
    Yeah looking for some friends of mine
    Down the dark street,
    the houses looked the same
    Stopped and turned around,
    held me to a game
    I walked round and round,
    you nailed me to a tree
    Trying to find a way,
    trying to find a way, to get out
    For twelve windows stand in a row
    Behind a wall
    where a room to go
    The light shined like a neon show
    See the deep mellow warmth
    of the glow
    No place to stop,
    no place to go
    No time to lose,
    have to keep on going
    I guess they died some time ago
    I guess they died some time ago
    And I was looking for a friend of mine
    And I have no time to lose
    Yeah, I was looking for a friend of mine

    I Remember Nothing
    We were strangers, we were strangers,
    Away too long,
    away too long
    We were violent strangers,
    away too long,
    Get weak all the time,
    we just passed the time
    Me in my own world, yeah you there beside
    The gaps only moment,
    we stared from each side
    We were strangers, away too long

    Violent, more violent his hand
    cracks the chair
    Moves on reaction, then slumps,
    in despair
    Trapped in a cage and surrendered
    too soon
    Me in my own world
    Away too long
    We were strangers (2)
    Away too long (2)
