This is how the wheels are turning, when your saying the same old story. This is all you'd leave behind, turn away and turn against this time. I can hear the people calling, they'll be waiting but we'll still be here. (Let is pass?) they all want something. Let it pass, the same before this time.
                                                                                                                                                                         Oh, ill break them all, no mercy shown, heaven knows its got to pass someone. Watching her, the things she said, I watched her shout, too frail to wake this time.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Ill break them all, no mercy shown, heaven knows she's got to be somewhere. An avenue, all lined with trees, then picture me, seeing yourself watching. Watching forever, watching forever. Ill just go, and take control, oh ill just go, to take control. Feeling it go, take control.

Hi, UnknownDivision.

Have you tried to transcribe these lyrics yourself? 

If so, that's very good. I can see that being plausible actually - I've never tried to transcribe any lyrics myself from any band, not even my own - but based on what I know about Ian Curtis, those lyrics do sound like they would be his, perhaps more so than the lyrics Barney transcribed. 

Thank you.

JDcat4.

Yeah I did transcribe these myself!

It took me about 30 minutes, and then even when I  was done I still compared my lyrics to when others transcribed it, then I just went back and changed a few things. Another thing I did was look back at some of Ians handwritten lyrics (So This Is Permanence) and then I kind of just wrote it based off of what I thought Ian would write, especially in the early stages of a song.
