Joy Division Christmas lyrics: “Wilderness”

The Joy Division Christmas Special was a great success; now I’ve got a bunch of their lyrics burned into my brain, in particular these:

Wilderness

I travelled far and wide through many different times,

What did you see there?

I saw the saints with their toys,

What did you see there?

I saw all knowledge destroyed.

I travelled far and wide through many different times.
I travelled far and wide through prisons of the cross,

What did you see there?
The power and glory of sin,

What did you see there?
The blood of Christ on their skins,

I travelled far and wide thorugh many different times.
I travelled far and wide and unknown martyrs died,

What did you see there?
I saw the one sided trials,

What did you see there?
I saw the tears as they cried,
They had tears in their eyes,
Tears in their eyes,
Tears in their eyes,
Tears in their eye.

(Ian Curtis/Joy Division)
