Love, In Itself




author: Martin Gore




All of these insurmountable tasks


That lay before me


All of the firsts


And the definite lasts


That lay in store for me




***




There was a time


When all on my mind was love


Now I find


That most of the time


Love's not enough


In itself




***




Consequently


I've a tendency


To be unhappy, you see


The thoughts in my head


All the words that were said


All the blues and the reds


Get to me




***




All of the absurdities


That lay before us


All of the doubts


And the uncertainties


That lay in store for us









More Than A Party




author: Martin Gore




Lots of surprises in store


This isn't a party


It's a whole lot more




***




We've had enough of this blind man's bluff


You've kept us in the dark for long enough




***




This is more than a party


More than a party


More than a party




***




Keep telling us we're to have fun


Then take all the ice cream so we've got none




***




The failed magician waves his wand


And in an instant the laughter's gone




***




Loads of surprises in store


This isn't a party


It's a whole lot more









Pipeline




author: Martin Gore




Get out the crane


Construction time again


What is it this time


We're laying a pipeline




***




Let the beads of sweat flow


Until the ends have met through


Could take a long time


Working on the pipeline




***




Taking from the greedy


Giving to the needy




***




On this golden day


Work's been sent our way


That could last a lifetime


Working on the pipeline




***




From the heart of our land


To the mouth of the man


Must reach him sometime


We're laying a pipeline




***




Taking from the greedy


Giving to the needy









Everything Counts




author: Martin Gore




The handshake seals the contract


From the contract there's no turning back


The turning point of a career


In Korea being insincere


The holiday was fun-packed


The contract, still intact




***




The grabbing hands grab all they can


All for themselves - after all


The grabbing hands grab all they can


All for themselves - after all


It's a competitive world




***




Everything counts in large amounts




***




The graph on the wall


Tells the story of it all


Picture it now see just how


The lies and deceit gained a little more power


Confidence - taken in


By a suntan and a grin




***




The grabbing hands grab all they can


All for themselves - after all


The grabbing hands grab all they can


All for themselves - after all


It's a competitive world




***




Everything counts in large amounts




***




The grabbing hands grab all they can


Everything counts in large amounts









Two Minute Warning




author: Alan Wilder




We're lying by the orange sky


Two million miles across the land


Scattered to the highest high


Expect they'll either laugh or cry


No sex, no consequence, no sympathy


You're good enough to heat




***




Two minute warning


Two minutes later


When time has come


My days are numbered




***




The dawning of another year


Marks time for those who understand


One in four still here


While you and I go hand in hand


No radio, no sound, no sin, no sanctuary


So welcome to your last




***




The sun, the solitude, the cemetary


So welcome to your last









Shame




author: Martin Gore




Do you ever get that feeling


When the guilt begins to hurt


Seeing all the children


Wallowing in dirt


Crying out with hunger


Crying out in pain


At least the dirt will wash off


When it starts to rain




***




Soap won't wash away your shame




***




Do you ever get that feeling


That something isn't right


Seeing your brother's fists


Clenched ready for the fight


Soon the fighting turns to weapons


And the weapons turn to wounds


So the doctors stitch and stitch


And stitch and stitch and stitch


And stitch and stitch




***




Surgery won't improve your pain




***




It all seems so stupid


It makes me want to give up


But why should I give up


When it all seems so stupid




***




Do you ever get the feeling


That something can be done


To eradicate these problems


And make the people one


Do you ever get that feeling


Something like a nagging itch


And all the while the doctors


Stitch and stitch and stitch


And stitch and stitch




***




Hope alone won't remove the stains


Shame









The Landscape Is Changing




author: Alan Wilder




The landscape is changing


The landscape is crying


Thousands of acres of forest are dying


Carbon copies from the hills above the forest line


Acid streams are flowing ill across the countryside




***




'Cause I don't care if you're going nowhere


Just take good care of the world


I don't case if you're going nowhere


Just take good care of the world




***




Now we're re-arranging


There's no use denying


Mountains and valleys, can't you hear them sighing


Evolution, the solution or the certainty


Can you imagine this intrusion of their privacy




***




Token gestures, some semblance of intelligence


Can we be blamed for the security of ignorance









Told You So




author: Martin Gore




And do those feet in modern times


Walk upon the flowers


And walk upon their brothers


While their heads are busy lying low


Trying to keep to cover...oh




***




Something went wrong


Along the way


Everybody's waiting for


Judgment day




***




So they can go


Told you so




***




Bring me my gun of itching desire


Bring me my bullets and I will fire


Sights set higher than the tall church spire




***




Standing in line


The blind lead the blind


Waiting and waiting


For an overdue sign


Brothers and sisters


Playing Chinese whispers


If things aren't suited


Then they'll get diluted




***




There's one more dead with a hole in his head


He shouldn't have said all the things he said


Many tears were shed for the blood he bled









And Then...




author: Martin Gore




Let's take a map of the world


Tear it into pieces


All of the boys and the girls


Will see how easy it is




***




To pull it all down and start again


From the top to the bottom and then


I'll have faith or, I prefer


To think that things couldn't turn out worse




***




All that we need at the start's


Universal Revolution (That's all!)



And if we trust in our hearts


We'll find the solutions




***




Took a plane across the world


Got in a car


When I had reached my destination


I hadn't gone far




***




Let's take the whole of the world


The mountains and the sand


Let all the boys and the girls


Shape it in their hands

Work Hard




single: "Everything Counts" / author: Martin Gore, Alan Wilder




You've got to work hard


You've got to work hard


If you want anything at all




***




Nothing comes easy


And that's a fact


Nothing comes easy


But a broken back




***




Nothing comes easy


It never will


Nothing comes easy


But a broken will




***




So work hard









Depeche Mode





Fools




single: "Love In Itself" / author: Alan Wilder




Don't know the reason why I


Think I've been here before


This place seems so familiar


But then I can't be sure


Here comes that time again when


You'll walk right out the door


Don't tell me secrets anymore




***




And fools don't run away


You'll be followed another day


And all the chances that fall your way


Are in the fire on your dying day


So call me now and tell me that you're home




***




Can't see the sense in crying


There's too many tears to fall


My thoughts are multiplying


So I'll try to save them all
