"Angel Dust" as written by and Stephen Paul David/hook Morris....
What shall I say
I fear you will betray me
How many ways
Can you prolong this tragedy
Who told you that I would be back
You came here to seize my freedom
I will send you falling slowly
To the earth I see below me

You never knew
With open arms I came to you
Judging me so safe to be with
Mistakes you made that you can't live with
What you get is what you need
When you watch the blood but you don't bleed
You make me feel like a masked delusion
A man whose life's became illusion

    General CommentPresumably the song is about PCP.

    General CommentThe relation of these lyrics to PCP is reasonable only in New Order actually named the song referring to the lyrics. It wouldn't be strange for me to know that the members of New Order sometimes put titles to their songs without even thinking of the lyrics.

    But, on the other hand, the lyrics of this song seem to describe an addiction-type relationship, one of those so common in modern society ("You came here to seize my freedom"). This kind of romance can easily be compared with a drug addiction.
    Nevertheless, I don't know the exact effects of PCP. Maybe there it is the secluded meaning of this song.
