​At A Later Date

This song is by Joy Division and appears on the compilation Short Circuit: Live at the Electric Circus (1978).

...4!
Why must we be put down when we try to get away?
Why must we all grow up when we could just play and play?
Good things in life are free,
Can't buy everything - that's true.
Only one thing wrong with that;
What I don't buy I don't use.

Only thing I'm thinking of is why are we all here?
There must be more to do at nights than drinking rotten beer.
The world's a very shady place, and you can't trust a soul.
"Grin and bear it" seemed the thing,
When it just gets a hold.

At a later date, I come out a fright.
At a later date, I hope that you're all right.

Human beings are dangerous and they call me in the dark.
But everything gets twice as cold in marching for a lark.
There's loads of things I'd like to do, if I could find a time.
Working really tires me and I think I'll turn to crime.

At a later date, I come out a soon.
At a later date, before we hit the moon.

I just can't be bothered to make an effort here at all.
People make your paying contributions all too small.
I just can't be bothered to make an effort here at all.
People make your paying contributions all too small.

At a later date, I'll be awful great.
At a later date, someone somewhere blew it.
At a later date.
At a later date.
