New Order Wiki

Your Silent Face is the fifth track of Power, Corruption and Lies by New Order. It is one of the most iconic songs from the album. Many people consider it great wedding music, as it contains a light and positive tune. Interestingly enough, it is one of the few songs by New Order with swear words (see lyrics below).


A thought that never changes
Remains a stupid lie
It's never been quite the same
No hearing or breathing
No movement, no colors
Just silence

Rise and fall of shame
A search that shall remain
We asked you what you'd seen
You said you didn't care

Sound formed in a vacuum
May seem a waste of time
It's always been just the same
No hearing or breathing
No movement no lyrics
Just nothing

The sign that leads the way
The path we can not take
You've caught me at a bad time
So why don't you piss off
