Warsaw is the first song of the extended play An Ideal For Living, by Joy Division. It is the very first song under Joy Division. It is about the Nazihood of Hitler's bodyguard Rudolf Hess. The song itself starts and ends with "3 5 0 1 2 5 Go!" and 31g appears several times, which may makes up his full serial number 31G 350125. Stanza 1 is where Rudolf meets Hitler in the Beer Hall Putsch, the next stanza marks his stages of dillusionment, and finally his last days in prison. It was going to be used for an album called Warsaw, but it (the album) was scrapped and released in 1994 as a compliation album.


3,5,0,1,2,5, go!

I was there in the back stage,
When this light came around.
I grew up like a changeling,
To win the first time around.
I can see all the weakness.
I pick all the faults.
Well I concede all the faith tests,
Just to stick in your throats.

31g, 31g, 31g
I hung around in your soundtrack,
To mirror all that you've done,
To find the right side of reason,
To kill the three lies for one,
I can see all the cold facts.
I can see through your eyes.
All this talk made no contact.
No matter how hard we tried.

31g, 31g, 31g

I can still hear the footsteps.
I can see only walls.
I slid into your man-traps,
With no hearing at all.
I just see contradiction,
Had to give up the fight,
Just to live in the past tense,
To make believe you were right.

31g, 31g, 31g

3, 5, 0, 1, 2, 5.
