Anti-Spring

Being in the work world makes you hate a lot of things, and Spring is definitely one of them. My window tells me it is hot and sunny outside, but I can't do anything about it (i.e. swim, ride bikes, breathe un-recycled air). So I'm starting an Anti-Spring playlist, to be played during lunch hours and/or designated breaks. Song one is going to give Spring a knockout punch:

Joy Division - New Dawn Fades

A change of speed, a change of style.
A change of scene, with no regrets,
A chance to watch, admire the distance,
Still occupied, though you forget.
Different colors, different shades,
Over each mistakes were made.
I took the blame.
Directionless so plain to see,
A loaded gun won't set you free.
So you say.
We'll share a drink and step outside,
An angry voice and one who cried,
'We'll give you everything and more,
The strain's too much, can't take much more.'
I've walked on water, run through fire,
Can't seem to feel it anymore.
It was me, waiting for me,
Hoping for something more,
Me, seeing me this time,
Hoping for something else.
