Who is this man
That follows me?
This blue eyed boy
Who wants to be
This worthy cause
Of humankind
This pawn set up by time

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll drive you away, he'll drive you insane
But then he'll remove all of your pain

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

This open book
Yet to be read
This second look
This leap ahead
The hope I held inside
With you, was kept alive

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll drive you away, he'll drive you insane
But then he'll remove all of your pain

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay

We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

    General CommentI think it's about Ian Curtis. How he wanted to be famous yet failed to achieve it himself. However, New Order DID achieve that fame and in a way kept Ian's dream (and his name and work) alive by doing so. Though they're tired of being overshadowed by his presence they realized that the music was just too good to waste time fighting and bickering with each other (the group broke up from 1993-1998) about and remembered how good it felt to play when they were young and just having a good time. Ian's ghost isn't a weight they have to bear, it's a blessing. So with that in mind New Order are "here to stay." Great track.
