Procession is a song by New Order, and the second single that New Order ever made. It is regarded as an intermediate between Joy Division and New Order. Everything's Gone Green has always been it's B-side.
Procession is a rather optimistic song, despite it's name, contains a strong "uprising" emphesis, along with an odd lyrical message. Gillian Gilbert also speaks with vocalist Bernard Sumner in this single (Alone, alone), giving a lyrical effect.
The Procession artwork has different colours (see gallery below) while some labels are reversed. The artwork represents "community".
Procession was included on the 1981-1982 EP, but not in any studio albums.
There is no end to this I have seen your face But I don't recognize all these things You must have left behind It's a problem, you know That's been there all your life I try to make you see the world without a view That just turn black and white At night it gets cold and You'd dearly like to turn away The escape that fills that makes you want to turn on heel Alone, alone, alone, alone There is no end to this I can't turn away Another picture but the scene It's still the same There is no room to move Or try to look away Remember, life is strange The life keeps getting stranger every day I try so hard but this attitudes A type that won't subside No matter what they say Remember your heart beats you day at night Your heart beats you day at night (3x)
