new order – cries and whispers

One of the b-sides off the Everything’s Gone Green 12″ single (Factory Benelux, 1981), New Order’s third single release after the demise of Joy Division following Ian Curtis’ death.

Below the surface, this day, I needed light
Inside dimension, lies another sacrifice
Once out of reach, we never speak, we never compromise
As I turned to go, the edges froze, it seemed to turn to ice

All flight departures, assembled, returned
Left in these passions, I looked but never learned
There’s hope, you’ve heard, there’s life in another world
Sometimes you’ll find that truth is never kind

In the ghost lies a portrait of space and time is never here
In the mind of a fallen man, a new day in another land

Ship sails out to sea, away from me, I just stand and stare
Assassin clears his hands, I know that and I wasn’t even there

One day it came to mind, we could leave the rest behind
Some day, I know you’ll get where you should go
There’s hope, you’ve heard, there’s life in another world
Sometimes we’ll find that truth is never kind

One day, change your mind, we could leave the rest behind
Some day, I know you’ll get where you should go
There’s hope, you’ve heard, there’s life in another world
