"Senses" as written by and Stephen Paul David/hook Morris....
My eyes are weary of you before me
I see for their sake, the light of daybreak
It shines upon me, this day we'd all see
No reason ever was given
No reason ever was given

Two ides of recoil, this moment's glory
A failed reminder of a broken story
My vague emotions one day will find
No reason ever was given
No reason ever was given

    General CommentI know this sounds cliche, but it sounds like it's about Ian's death.

    "My eyes are weary of you before me
    I see for their sake, the light of daybreak
    It shines upon me, this day we'd all see"

    He's in the aftermath of Ian's death, and he's trying to look up and be strong for everyone, and everyone's hoping & trying to get through the grief and pain caused by Ian's death.

    "No reason ever was given"

    Ian's death was a surprise to the people around him. I believe I remember reading in an interview somewhere that Bernard & the other members of New Order never really took a good look at the lyrics Ian wrote until after his death, then cursed themselves for not seeing all the signs.

    "Two sides of recoil, this moment's glory
    A failed reminder of a broken story
    My vague emotions one day will find"
    I'm not so sure on this part, but it kind of sounds like he has so many thoughts running through his head that he can't figure out how to deal with things, but someday he'll have all his thoughts on the subject of Ian's death sorted out.
