She's Lost Control Lyrics - Joy Division

Review The Song (14)



Confusion in her eyes that says it all.
She's lost control.
And she's clinging to the nearest passer by,
She's lost control.
And she gave away the secrets of her past,
And said I've lost control again,
And of a voice that told her when and where to act,
She said I've lost control again.

And she turned around and took me by the hand
And said I've lost control again.
And how I'll never know just why or understand
She said I've lost control again.
And she screamed out kicking on her side
And said I've lost control again.
And seized up on the floor, I thought she'd die.
She said I've lost control.
sponsored links
She's lost control again.
She's lost control.
She's lost control again.
She's lost control.

Well I had to phone her friend to state my case,
And say she's lost control again.
And she showed up all the errors and mistakes,
And said I've lost control again.
But she expressed herself in many different ways,
Until she lost control again.
And walked upon the edge of no escape,
And laughed I've lost control.
She's lost control again.
She's lost control.
She's lost control again.
She's lost control.

I could live a little better with the myths and the lies,
When the darkness broke in, I just broke down and cried.
I could live a little in a wider line,
When the change is gone, when the urge is gone,
To lose control. When here we come.

believe honestly anyone with any disorder causing extreme confusion & or delusion this song could very much apply to. obviously , Ian being epileptic & few lines in song about kicking about on floor are surely about just that. feel many can and always will honestly relate to this song on a very deep level ( not only because its a "best of" ).

meaning | Reviewer: redprince | 5/5/13

I love this song, but it bothers me when people adamantly state what a song is about and then try to correct people who have a different interpretation... why can't you just let people have their own meanings to things... this also applies to other art, movies, books, and even life itself through religion and differing philosophies... i have my own meanings, you have yours, i actually like hearing different meanings to things... but it seems like most people get insulted,angry,violent if your meanings don't match theirs...

To me the meaning of this song has nothing to do with epilepsy, (Even if Ian Curtis explained his meaning behind it in an interview back when he was still alive, I will keep my own meaning... even if he came back to haunt me as a ghost, i will keep my own meaning) but I'm not going to share my meaning, my interpretation of it, just because i know someone will try to "correct" me about it when there is nothing to correct, and then they would dissect my meaning to try to "prove" to me how "wrong" i am... and just all that bullshit from some know-it-all-set-in-stone-shitwad would ruin the song for me because then i might associate this song with that...

everything is relative, there is no "one true way", even science has shown that matter and energy can be affected and change depending upon if they are being observed... and if you disagree with what i say here, that's fine, that's still how you see it and in no way does it prove anyone "right" or "wrong"...

A song with a deeper meaning | Reviewer: Oliver Rhodes | 12/30/12

I'm autistic. I know this song is about epilepsy. But I also feel that the song connects with how people can lose control of who they are because what they have is stronger than their confidence. Ian Curtis, genius and a legend for sure.

What its ACTUALLY About | Reviewer: Mike | 9/28/11

A person above says

"this song is actually about ian's experience volunteering at a mental institution where he dealt with a girl that had epilepsy. that same girl i think either died in a fit or committed suicide and ian was inspired to write this song. "

This is INCORRECT

Although nearly correct. Ian worked in a state office helping disabled people claim the benefits they were entitled too. The song is about an girl who he rather liked who had epilepsy before he knew he had it himself, and about what happened to her.

Beautiful lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/26/11

The lyrics of this song are beautiful and sad and I totally agree that this song does state the feelings and thoughts that occur before and after you have epilepsy. This song is beautiful, its beats its lyrics... it should be dedicated to all epileptics out there and God give us courage!

epileptic | Reviewer: zita | 2/19/10

I like this song but also scares me. Both feelings are a result of my state, epileptic. I think Ian would felt very sad when he wrote She´s lost control. Many times in my life I´ve lost control, walking upon the edge... The song is in my heart, thank you Ian.

lost control | Reviewer: Johnny | 4/2/09

sounds like the thoughts of somebody on the verge of having a seizure... now, I have only had one once and am not sure if I have epilepsy or anything, but I'm sure if I had some sort of inkling that it was about to occur (which I didn't)) then it would be something along the lines of this.

Pure brilliance | Reviewer: jeff | 12/30/07

Joy Division and New Order are the best bands ever. This song is exceptional along with all other Joy Division songs. It was a sad day when Ian Curtis died.

For a good cover ... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/25/07

Girls Against Boys did a really cool cover of She's Lost Control. Find it, listen to it and bust out in a rockin' spaz dance Ian Curtis style to appreciate its full beauty.

Enscapsulated perfectly | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/16/07

I have Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy and this song perfectly states the feelings and thoughts that occur before and after you have a seizure.

Sounds Like God's 4-Letter Word | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/11/06

Sounds Like late-era God's 4-Letter Word circa 1996.
