Joy Division - Substance: Wikipedia Album Entry
After the major studio releases of two Joy Division albums and the sad, tragic suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis, fans and record labels everywhere began honoring everything that made Ian Curtis, well... Ian Curtis. From his seductive baritone voice to his songwriting style.

Everything is by design
Everything is by design
Don't speak of safe Messiahs
Failure of the modern man
To the center of all life's desires
As a whole, not an also ran
This is the hour when the mysteries emerge
A strangeness so hard to reflect
A moment so moving, goes straight to your heart
The vision has never been met
Born from some mother's womb
Just like any other room
Made a promise for a new life
Made a victim out of your life
So long sitting here
Didn't hear the warning
Waiting for the tape to run
When people listen to you don't you know it means a lot?
'Cause you've got to work so hard for everything you've got
Can't rest on your laurels now not when you've got none
You'll find yourself in a gutter right back where you came from
