Re: slumpy & Joy Division - A Means To An End II

I have no idea how this happened. I love Joy Division, and I decided to take a song and change the lyrics enough without losing the anger. It feels slightly sacriligeous, though there were alternatives ["Is this the crisis I knew had to come, destroying the balanced I'd kept?"] but it sums up my feelings well enough.

A legacy, in time removed
Your guardianship to prove
Eternal rights we left behind
In trust, our World enshrined
To pay respects, protect it too
We put our trust in you
We put our trust in you

We thought our Gods would recognise
Our efforts justified
Strange the way that hopes can rise
Our vision touched the skies
Immortal gift, our love to prove
We put our trust in you
We put our trust in you

Beneath a hill of sacred soil
This modern vermin's spoil
Is this your hope, your final deed?
Where prayers are left to bleed
Resigned to this, we curse your soul
We put our trust in you
We put our trust in you
