I was there in the backstage
when first light came around
I grew up like a changeling
to wait the first time around
I could see all the weakness
I could pick all the faults
But I concede all the faith-tests,
just a stick in your throat
3 - 1 - G
I'm around in your soundtrack,
to mirror all that you've done
To find the right side of reason
to kill the three lies for one
I could see all the cold facts,
I could see through your eyes
All this don't make no contact
no matter how hard I try
3 - 1 - G
I could still hear the footsteps,
I could see only walls
All this don't make no contact,
here, hearing no at all
I could see contradiction,
I could give up the right
Just to live in the past tense,
To make believe you were right!
3 - 1 - G
3 - 5 - 0 - 1 - 2 - 5

    General CommentThis song is actually by Joy Division, but Justin Pearson (of Swing Kids, as well as Struggle, Crimson Curse, The Locust, etc) really loved JD and wanted to cover it.The second to last line "3 - 1 - G " is also the name of the record label he runs out of San Diego.Swing Kids were an amazing band, I wish I could've seen them live.

    General Commentthere is a lot more in this song...

    31G-350125 was the prison code for Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler's mentor, when he was imprisoned after the second world war. i think, it hurts to find that out, but it's well-known that ian curtis, singer of joy divison, had a fascination for nazi-aesthetics.

    General Comment31 G = 31 grand was apparently the average cost of a one bedroom flat in manchester at the time the song was written, Justin had no idea what it meant but he liked the sound of it apparently. 350125 = the prison number of well known cock rudolf hess.
