This song is a cover of Joy Division's 1979 track written by Ian Curtis of the same name. The Killers were tapped to do the cover for the 2007 film "Control" which was based on Ian Curtis' life in his later years. Joy Division is one of The Killers' biggest influences.

To the centre of the city where all roads meet, waiting for you
To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you
Well I was moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you
In a room with a window in the corner I found truth
