Joy Division, Shadowplay



To the centre of the city where all roads meet, waiting for you,
To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you,
I was moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you,
I a room with a window in the corner I found truth.

In the shadowplay, acting out your own death, knowing no more,
As the assassins all grouped in four lines, dancing on the floor,
And with cold steel, odour on their bodies made a move to connect,
But I could only stare in disbelief as the crowds all left.

I did everything, everything I wanted to,
I let them use you for their own ends,
To the centre of the city in the night, waiting for you,
To the centre of the city in the night, waiting for you.

The Killers version
The Killers released a cover of the song as a promotional single for their b-sides and rarities album, Sawdust. The song was initially recorded for the 2007 film Control.[2] Their version plays during the credits to the film and appears on the Control soundtrack. It became a live staple for the band's 2006-2007 Sam's Town tour. Footage from the movie Control appears in the video for Shadowplay.
