"New Day" as written by Robert James Smith and Laurence Andrew Tolhurst....
Shout
New day, new day

In Heaven the ground is waiting
For the dust, the seed, my love once more
I shout, shout this is new, new day, new day

Hold the air and gasp in life
This solid dance this cold, cold night is gone, is gone
The dark heat throbs, the fools' sweat swims
The hazy lights the deadly sins are gone, are gone

Crack the stone invade my head
Dropping honey, dropping dead again, again
The silence shouts across the gap
Another dreaming love me again, love me again

Shout, shout, shout
Love me again
Shout, shout, shout

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song, 1. it frightened me; 2. made my brain feel like it was being twisted around like a wad of Silly Putty; and 3. I knew I had to listen to it again to make sure it was real.
    Definitely odd, original and dark (drug induced, as well), "New Day" is something I personally think every Cure fan should hear. After a few initial listens, I really actually enjoy this song.
    On the walk back to his hotel room after recording this song in 1984, Robert Smith collapsed and had to be taken to the hospital. Not too surprising, if you've ever heard the song....

    General Comment'The Dust the seed' referes to sperm. And fire is sex. He uses symbolism from Dylan Thomas and uses the same words in 'Let's go to bed' with 'it used to be the dust that would lay here when I came here alone'
    He is finding refuge in sex with a woman that he finds heaven-like. He finds rebirth in his encounters with this woman and through their 'solid dance', as he can alweays count on her for a booty call. Yet, she want's to get to know him more and more during their post sex pillow chat, where she 'crack the stone invade my head dropping honey dropping dead again' but he is not looking for a relationship as he gives her no insight to his inner person and 'the silence shouts across the gap' Still he feels renewed with her 'a new day'
