Alienation

Ian Curtis / Joy Division
Ian Curtis / Joy Division
This is a song about alienation

Joy Division / Joy Division
Electric face / Driven bass
Driven space / Electric chase
Anyone could dance to that transmission
Anyone could lose control…
but then you go home to your alienation
Alienation / Alienation…
Alienation

Ian Curtis had a family
Ian Curtis had epilepsy
Ian Curtis had a family, but he had poetry and alienation
Alienation / Alienation
Alienation / Alienation
He had a lover / He had a wife
He had a lover and he had a wife
And his wife / had a child
Ah but his lover was dark and wild…

Ian Curtis / Joy Division
Ian Curtis / Alienation
On the frame / above the stove
where his wife / dried the clothes
was a strong / hemp rope
and one night he couldn’t cope with his alienation
Alienation / Alienation
Alienation / Alienation
Alienation Alienation Alienation Alienation…

Electric face / Driven bass
Driven space / Electric chase
Anyone could dance to that transmission
Anyone could lose control
Ian Curtis lost control — he lost control of his alienation
Alienation / Alienation
Alienation / Alienation…
Alienation.
