A Pain That I'm Used To




author: Martin Gore




I'm not sure


What I'm looking for anymore


I just know


That I'm harder to console


I don't see who I'm trying to be


Instead of me


But the key


Is a question of control




***




Can you say


What you're trying to play anyway


I just pay


While you're breaking all the rules


All the signs that I find


Have been underlined


Devils thrive on the drive


That is fuelled




***




All this running around


Well it's getting me down


Just give me a pain that I'm used to


I don't need to believe


All the dreams you conceive


You just need to achieve


Something that rings true




***




There's a hole in your soul


Like an animal


With no conscience


Repentance unknown


Close your eyes


Pay the price for your paradise


Devils feed on the seeds


That are sown




***




Can't conceal what I feel


What I know is real


No mistaking the faking


I care


With a prayer in the air


I will leave it there


On a note full of hope


Not despair




***




All this running around


Well it's getting me down


Just give me a pain that I'm used to


I don't need to believe


All the dreams you conceive


You just need to achieve


Something that rings true









John The Revelator




author: Martin Gore




John the Revelator


Put him in an elevator


Take him up to the highest high


Take him up to the top


Where the mountains stop


Let him tell his book of lies




***




John the Revelator


He's a smooth operator


It's time we cut him down to size


Take him by the hand


And put him on the stand


Let us hear his alibis




***




By claiming God


As his holy right


He's stealing a God


From the Israelites


Stealing a God


From the Muslim too


There is only one God


Through and through




***




Seven lies multiplied by seven


Multiplied by seven again


Seven angels with seven trumpets


Send them home on the morning train




***




Well who's that shouting


John the Revelator


All he ever gives us is pain


Well who's that shouting


John the Revelator


He should bow his head in shame




***




By and By


By and By


By and By


By and By




***




Seven lies multiplied by seven


Multiplied by seven again


Seven angels with seven trumpets


Send them home on the morning train




***




Well who's that shouting


John the Revelator


All he ever gives us is pain


Well who's that shouting


John the Revelator


He should bow his head in shame




***




By and By


By and By


John the Revelator


By and By


John the Revelator


By and By


John the Revelator









Suffer Well




author: Dave Gahan, Christian Eigner, Andrew Phillpott




Where were you when I fell from grace


A frozen heart an empty space




***




Something's changed and it's in your eyes


Please don't speak you'll only lie




***




I found treasure not where I thought


Peace of mind can't be bought


Still I believe




***




Just hang on


Suffer well


Sometimes it's hard


It's hard to tell




***




An angel led me when I was blind


I said take me back I've changed my mind


Now I believe




***




From the blackest room I was torn


You called my name my love was born


So I believev




***




Just hang on


Suffer well


Sometimes it's hard


It's hard to tell




***




Just hang on


Suffer well


Sometimes it's hard


So hard to tell








The Sinner In Me




author: Martin Gore




If I could just hide


The sinner inside


And keep him denied


How sweet life would be


If I could be free


From the sinner in me




***




I'll never be a saint


That's not a picture that your memory paints


Not renowned for my patience


I'm not renowned for my restraint


But you're always around


You can always be found


To pick me up when I'm on the ground




***




If I could just hide


The sinner inside


And keep him denied


How sweet life would be


If I could be free


From the sinner in me




***




I'm still recovering


Still getting over all the suffering


More known for my anger


Than for any other thing


But you've always tried


To be by my side


And catch my fall when I start to slide




***




If I could just hide


The sinner inside


And keep him denied


How sweet life would be


If I could be free


From the sinner in me








Precious




author: Martin Gore




Precious and fragile things


Need special handling


My God what have we done to you


We always tried to share


The tenderest of care


Now look what we have put you through




***




Things get damaged


Things get broken


I thought we'd manage


But words left unspoken


Left us so brittle


There was so little left to give




***




Angels with silver wings


Shouldn't know suffering


I wish I could take the pain for you


If God has a master plan


That only He understands


I hope it's your eyes He's seeing through




***




Things get damaged


Things get broken


I thought we'd manage


But words left unspoken


Left us so brittle


There was so little left to give




***




I pray you learn to trust


Have faith in both of us


And keep room in your hearts for two




***




Things get damaged


Things get broken


I thought we'd manage


But words left unspoken


Left us so brittle


There was so little left to give









Macro




author: Martin Gore




Overflowing senses


Heightened awareness


I hear my blood flow


I feel its caress


Whispering cosmos


Talking right to me


Unlimited endless


God breathing through me




***




See the microcosm


In macro vision


Our bodies moving


With pure precision


One universal celebration


One evolution


One creation




***




Thundering rhythm


Pounding within me


Driving me onwards


Forcing me to see


Clear and enlightening


Right there before me


Brilliantly shining


Intricate beauty




***




See the microcosm


In macro vision


Our bodies moving


With pure precision


One universal celebration


One evolution


One creation









I Want It All




author: Dave Gahan, Christian Eigner, Andrew Phillpott




I see a river


It's oceans that I want


You have to give me everything


Everything's not enough




***




It's my desire


To give myself to you


Sometimes




***




Sometimes I try


Sometimes I lie, with you


Sometimes I cry


Sometimes I die, it's true


Somewhere I find


Something that's kind




***




And I've crossed the line again


A line I drew in sand


Still you give me everything


And everything's not enough




***




I'm ready but not willing


To give myself to you


Sometimes




***




Sometimes I try


Sometimes I lie, with you


Sometimes I cry


Sometimes I die, it's true


Somewhere I find


Something that's kind




***




Come on over


Lay down beside me


And I'll try


Come on over


Lay down beside me


And I'll try


And I'll try




***




I want it all









Nothing's Impossible




author: Dave Gahan, Christian Eigner, Andrew Phillpott




Just give me a reason some kind of sign


I'll need a miracle to help me this time


I heard what you said and I feel the same


I know in my heart that I'll have to change




***




Even the stars look brighter tonight


Nothing's impossible


I still believe in love at first sight


Nothing's impossible




***




How did we get to be this far apart


How did we get to be this far apart


I want to be with you have something to share


I want to be here I'm not there




***




Even the stars look brighter tonight


Nothing's impossible


I still believe in love at first sight


Nothing's impossible




***




Even the stars look brighter tonight


Nothing's impossible


If you believe in love at first sight


Nothing's impossible




***




I still believe in love at first sight


Nothing's impossible

Damaged People




author: Martin Gore




We're damaged people


Drawn together


By subtleties that we are not aware of


Disturbed souls


Playing out forever


These games that we once thought we would be scared of




***




When you're in my arms


The world makes sense


There is no pretense


And you're crying


When you're by my side


There is no defense


I forget to sense


I'm dying




***




We're damaged people


Praying for something


That doesn't come from somewhere deep inside us


Depraved souls


Trusting in the one thing


The one thing that this life has not denied us




***




When I feel the warmth


Of your very soul


I forget I'm cold


And crying


When your lips touch mine


And I lose control


I forget I'm old


And dying









Lilian




author: Martin Gore




Oh, Lillian


Look what you've done


You've stripped my heart


Ripped it apart


In the name of fun




***




Oh, Lillian


I'm a poor man's son


And precious jewels


Weren't found in schools


Where I came from




***




Pain and misery always hit the spot


Knowing you can't lose what you haven't got




***




Oh, Lillian


I should have run


I should have known


Each dress you own


Is a loaded gun




***




Oh, Lillian




***




Oh, Lillian


I need protection


I hear your voice


And any choice I had is gone




***




Oh, Lillian


Once I begun


I couldn't stop


'til every drop of blood was sung




***




Pain and misery always hit the spot


Knowing you can't lose what you haven't got




***




Oh, Lillian


Look what you've done


You stripped my heart


Ripped it apart


In the name of fun




***




Oh, Lillian


Oh, Lillian


Oh, Lillian


Oh, Lillian









The Darkest Star




author: Martin Gore




Oh you sad one


Playing the angel


Isn't so easy where you're from




***




Oh you wild one


Devil's companion


You won't stay satisfied for long




***




I don't want you to change anything you do


I don't want you to be someone else for me




***




Oh you dark one


Eternal outsider


Caught in the spider's web you've spun




***




Oh you blind one


Gentle and kind one


Seeing the world as a loaded gun




***




I don't want you to change anything you do


I don't want you to be someone else for me




***




Stay as you are the darkest star


Shining for me


Majestically

Free




single: "Precious" / author: Martin Gore




I will never be free


I shall never be released


From the chains that bind me


That torture and blind me


And keep me from peace




***




Oh what heartache


Oh what heartbreak


Following me


Calling to me




***




I will never be free


I shall never be released


From the chains that bind me


That torture and blind me


And keep me from peace




***




I will never be free


I will never be laid to rest


Sisters and brothers


I'll never recover


From this tenderness




***




See what love brings


Hear what love sings


Sad melodies


Enticing me

Newborn




single: "A Pain That I'm Used To" / author: Martin Gore




Newborn


For the first time


I'm not born again


I have never lived at all


I've opened up my eyes


Now I hear the world talking


Opened up my eyes


I've just started walking


I've just started walking




***




I've got someone who cares for me


Someone who believes in me


I've got someone understanding me


Someone crying over me


For all the right reasons


For all the right reasons




***




Newborn


For the first time


I'm not born again


I have never lived at all


I've opened up my eyes


Now I hear the world talking


Opened up my eyes


I've just started walking


I've just started walking




***




I've got someone seeing grace in me


Someone respecting me


I've got someone who's there for me


Someone saying prayers for me


For all the right reasons


For all the right reasons

Better Days




single: "Suffer Well" / author: Martin Gore




What are you hiding from


You are part of the sum


What has been going on


Your confidence has gone




***




You have seen better days


You have lived better ways




***




What are you waiting for


Answers that question more


Unexpected they will come


Are you expecting some




***




You have seen better days


You have lived better ways




***




Only time will tell


What will come of you


Only crime could sell


What you're trying to




***




Where are you heading to


What plans will you pull through


With trouble in the wings


Will you risk anything




***




You have seen better days


You have lived better ways
