Condidate by Joy Division

Candidate is one base song of the album Unknown Pleasure. in Candidate Ian Curtis explains his relationship and the recently known limitations which when they do not stay unspoken they lose their pleasure. tho he does not want to blame himself and puts all the wrong on the other side of the relationship.


Forced by the pressure,
The territories marked,
No longer the pleasure,
Oh, I’ve since lost the heart.

Corrupted from memory,
No longer the power,
It’s creeping up slowly,
The last fatal hour.

Oh, I don’t what made me,
What gave me the right,
To mess with your values,
And change wrong to right.

Please keep your distance,
The trail leads to here,
There’s blood on your fingers,
Brought on by fear.

I campaigned for nothing,
I worked hard for this,
I tried to get to you,
You treat me like this.

It’s just second nature,
It’s what we’ve been shown,
We’re living by your rules,
That’s all that we know.

I tried to get to you.

Post Script

The atmosphere of Candidate, brings out the fear to mind. Joy Divison members were Ian Curtis, Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, and Stephen Morris.
