Dusk pollutes the blogwaves!

Alkaline Trio's tribute to Joy Division.

Rate this Entry
It's called Help Me. It's about Ian Curtis.

It almost kicks ass, save a few details I noticed.

a)It's not a punk / post punk tune. I don't like pop punk much.

b) It doesn't capture, in my opinion, the essence of Ian. He was a closed person that never asked for help, and was not a creepy person, save for the stage. He was humorous, jovial, eccentric, and in bad days secretive. In fact, Alkaline Trio romanticized Ian Curtis & Joy Division to a sickening mainstream character.

Overall though, it's a catchy song, and it's got some feeling and truth in it.

DUSK'S RATING : 3 out of 5

But now, on with the video/lyrics.

YouTube - Alkaline Trio- Help Me (Street Version)

Here you'll find me in between
Heaven and hell my dear where nothings what it seems
It's just as well I fear I'm giving you the creeps
And a farewell kiss to go into the unknown

Saw you standing there
Outside the music hall, you come out for some air
A certain curtain call and everyone just stared
When you took the stage that night
Somethings not right

You're up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobodies home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long

And they sing (love)

> Help me, help me won't you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
Save me from myself

Here I'll find you in between
Heaven and hell again where nothings what it seems
It's just as well my friend
I'm giving me the creeps
And a farewell to arms and legs and heads and heart

You're up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobodies home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long

And they sing (love)
Help me, help me won't you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me

Save me from myself
Take me from this hell

And they sing
La la la la la la la la (four times)

You're up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobodies home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long

And they sing (love)
Help me, help me won't you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
Save me from myself

Help me, help me won't you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
La la la la la la la la
Save me from myself
Take me from this hell
