A New Dawn Fades

A change of speed, a change of style
A change of scene, with no regrets
A chance to watch, admire the distance
Still occupied, though you forget
Different colors, different shades
Over each mistakes were made1
I took the blame
Directionless so plain to see
A loaded gun won't set you free
So you say2
 
We’ll share a drink and step outside
An angry voice and one who cried
We’ll give you everything and more
The strain’s too much, can’t take much more
Oh, I’ve walked on water, run through fire
Can’t seem to feel it anymore3
It was me, waiting for me
Hoping for something more
Me, seeing me this time, hoping for something else4
 
  • 1. It can only be concerning suicide after a break-up. Nothing more. On the first verse, he calmly looks at his relationship with his wife and realizes that it’s all wrong. He realizes that they can’t match with each other. It’s all about differences between people and when people love each other, they don’t care about their differences and moreover, they dig the differences of their lover that enrich them. And when it’s over, one has the impression that the person whom he loved has changed. “a change of speed, a change of style…”
  • 2. He thought they could match and he still loves her, so he plans to commit suicide and he has already told her so. What is really powerful and poignant is how aware and lucid he is about his situation and his decision. His situation is so directionless that he knows he can go away with no regrets. And at the same time, he’s been too far with her, so he knows there is only one solution
  • 3. An angry voice and one who cried is also beautiful. It shows how different they are and how, now, they can’t deal with it. Now, the final lines are really deep. “Cant’s seem to feel it anymore”. He once loves a girl but now he does not feel it anymore
  • 4. He wish he could feel it because he does not want anything else in his life. But she is too distant from him now. So he says one last time “it was me…”. He talks about him in the past which means I don’t exist anymore. She was hoping for something more from him but he tells her “that’s me, I can’t offer more than me!”

Lyrics, infos in Submitter's comments, album and footnotes have added by Fani1993.
“New Dawn Fades” as written by Ian Kevin Curtis, Peter Hook, Stephen Paul David Morris, Bernard Sumner
Lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group
One of the many reasons Unknown Pleasures is the landmark album it is, “New Dawn Fades” was the most overt turn by Joy Division on that record towards an epic rock moment, drawing on everything from Black Sabbath’s anti-anthems to Krautrock’s clean, steady drive.

A strange, looped instrumental moan heralds the rhythm section’s appearance, Peter Hook’s bass as sepulchral as could be asked for, Bernard Sumner’s guitar sounding like it’s trying to slowly scale an impossible height, trying to rise above where it was.

Ian Curtis’s vocals reflect on personal connection and its tangled collapse, of trying to escape a poisonous entropy in search of feeling — the initial slight echo and almost half-whispered singing eventually turns into a near howl, the melodramatic becoming obsessively personal and strong, “hoping for something more.” Sumner’s concluding riff makes for a moment of light in this otherwise astonishingly dark, powerful composition.

ありがとう!
