Lyrics of Procession

There is no end to this
I have seen your face
But I don't recognize all these things
You must have kept behind
It's a problem, you know
That's been there all your life
Tries to make you see the world without you
That's just some black and white
At night it gets cold and
You'd dearly like to turn away
An escape that fails
And makes the wounds that time won't heal
Hello, hello, hello, hello

There is no end to this
I can't turn away
Another picture would deceive
History'd say
There is no room to move
Or try to look away
Remember, life is strange
And life keeps getting stranger every day
A mass of harmless attitudes
All tied up all subside
No matter what they say
You knew your heart beats you late at night
Your heart beats you late at night (3)

'Procession' is the second single by British group New Order, released in September 1981 on 7' vinyl record. The single's Factory Records catalogue number is FAC 53.

Compared to the band's previous single Ceremony, this one shows the band in an intermediate position between post-punk Joy Division and light electropop New Order. The lighter pop optimism, with a strong emphasis on rhythm, overcomes the song's gloomy title, 'Procession'. This 'mixed message' may help to explain why the song remains obscure in the New Order repertoire, despite having been a single. The sound is much like 'Movement's opening track 'Dreams Never End', but with an even more upbeat flavor and vocals that have nearly shed the Ian Curtis imitation. The lyrics are abstract and difficult to discern, given the density of the mix and the strength of the other instruments. The song is notable, also, because there are brief backing vocals by band member Gillian Gilbert, which serve as a bell effect.

Though all of New Order's songs are credited as group compositions, it is known that the chief composer of 'Procession' is Stephen Morris.

Notably, the UK release's sleeve came in nine differently coloured versions: black, blue, aqua, yellow, red, brown, orange, green and purple. The B-side is an edited version of 'Everything's Gone Green', the full-length version of which was later released as a 12' single on its own.

The song does not appear on any of New Order's studio albums; it does, however, appear on the 1987 singles compilation 'Substance', the 2005 compilation 'Singles', and the 2008 Collector's Edition of the band's contemporaneous album 'Movement'.

Some Spanish and Portuguese pressings are mispressed with reversed labels.
