A moment of reflection

Here I sit, at half one in the morning, idly listening to tunes on my new MP3 player. Ecoute - and read the lyrics of one of the finest cover versions ever made - Moby's version of Joy Division's New Dawn Fades - which I'm listening to right now as I post.

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 colours, different shades,

Over each mistakes were made.

I took the blame.

Directionless so plain to see,

A loaded gun won't set you free.

So you say.

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 anymore.

It was me, waiting for me,

Hoping for something more,

Me, seeing me this time, hoping for something else.
