Joy Division /

Interzone (RCA demo)

I walked through the city limits
Someone talked me in to try to do it
Attracted by some force within it
Had to close my eyes to get close to it

Around a corner where a prophet lay
Saw the place where she'd a room to stay
A wire fence where the children played
Saw the bed where the body lay

And I was looking for a friend of mine
And I had no time to waste
Yeah, looking for some friends of mine

The cars screeched, hear the sound on dust
Heard a noise, just a car outside
Metallic blue turned red with rust
Pulled in close by the building's side

In a group, all forgotten youth
Had to think, collect my senses now
Are turned on to a knife edged view
Find some places where my friends don't know

And I was looking for a friend of mine
And I had no time to waste
Yeah, looking for some friends of mine

Down the dark streets, the houses looked the same
Getting darker now, faces look the same
I walked round and round
No stomach, torn apart
They nailed me to a train
Had to think again
Trying to find a clue, trying to find a way to get out!
Trying to move away, had to move away and keep out

Four, twelve windows, ten in a row
Behind a wall, well I looked down low
The lights shined like a neon show
Inserted deep, felt a warmer glow

No place to stop, no place to go
No time to lose, had 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 had no time to waste
Yeah, looking for some friends of mine
