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 don't think this is about Ian Curtis, not so sure what is about anyway... Sometimes I related NO songs to IC... but that's probably because those two thoughts are already in my mind so I can't freely listen and decide what is about... Some things seem to hint at it, anyway... like the constant "he", "the second look", "the leap ahead", "the hope kept alive", but I don't think that the parts "he'll remove all of your pain", "this worhy cause of human kind", "this open book yet to be read" suggest Ian Curtis... And it maybe that the "we" is not the band, but some kind of methaphor for something else...
