IAN CURTIS

Stretford, UK 15 July 1956 ā€“ Macclesfield, 18 May 1980

Walk in silence
Don’t walk away, in silence
See the danger
Always danger

Endless talking
Life rebuilding
Don’t walk away

Walk in silence
Don’t turn away, in silence
Your confusion
My illusion

Worn like a mask of self-hate
Confronts and then dies
Don’t walk away

People like you find it easy
Naked to see
Walking on air
Hunting by the rivers,
through the streets,
every corner

Abandoned too soon
Set down with due care
Don’t walk away in silence
Don’t walk away
