Bauhaus - Severance Lyrics

The birds of leaving call to us,
Yet here we stand
endowed with the fear of flight.
The winds of change consume the land,
While we remain
In the shadow of summers now past.
When all the leaves
Have fallen and turned to dust,
Will we remain
Entrenched within our ways.
The plague that moves throughout this land
Omen signs
In the shapes of things to come.

Tomorrow's child is the only child.

Bauhaus Severance Comments
  1. Natalie T

    This song moves me in such a way words won’t ever explain

  2. Angharad

    Both the original DCD and the Bauhaus version tear my heart out. There are no words that are worthy.

    Absolutely gut wrenching, lump in my throat, kind of music. I always listen to it alone. The song is one of those rarities which grabs you by the heart and does not let go. Both the DCD version and Bauhaus's rendition are equally amazing. Play back to back and repeat. 🎧

  5. Guy Menard

    Think it`s better than the original

    Koukol & FSG

    Bauhaus are excellent musicians and Peter Murphy is just someone.

    I saw this live in Seattle and then a day or two later in Vancouver B.C. in like 1998... I didn't know it was coming. I nearly passed out...I swear I didn't take a breath for several moments....My brain just stopped working....

    Peregrine C I saw them perform this last night. Same! It was phenomenal and grabbed ahold of me and didn’t let go. I woke up smiling just thinking about it.

    Same here. I caught them in Philly on their reunion tour. Knew every song they played frontwards, backwards, sideways, studio version and live version.

    Then they broke out into this, and a glowing halo lowered and I witnessed the greatest thing outside of the birth of my kids as Pete, his voice, the band just literally stopped time for what seemed an eternity lost inside this song. Amazing moment that I'll take to the grave with me.

    very great version 👍
