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
