Depeche Mode









Something To Do




author: Martin Gore




My little girl


Won't you come with me


Come with me


Tell me




***




Is there something to do


I'm going crazy with boredom


Come with me


Tell me




***




Grey sky over a black town


I can feel depression


All around


You've got your leather boots on




***




I can't stand another drink


It's surprising this town


Doesn't sink


You've got your leather boots on




***




Your pretty dress is oil stained


From working too hard


For too little


You've got your leather boots on




***




You're feeling the boredom too


I'd gladly go with you


I'd put your leather boots on


I'd put your pretty dress on









Lie To Me




author: Martin Gore




Come on and lay with me


Come on and lie to me


Tell me you love me


Say I'm the only one




***




Experiences have a lasting impression


But words once spoken


Don't mean a lot now


Belief is the way


The way of the innocent


And when I say innocent


I should say naive


So lie to me


But do it with sincerity


Make me listen


Just for a minute


Make me think


There's some truth in it




***




Promises made for convenience


Aren't necessarily


What we need


Truth is a word


That's lost its meaning


The truth has become


Merely half-truth


So lie to me


Like they do it in the factory


Make me think


That at the end of the day


Some great reward


Will be coming my way









People Are People




author: Martin Gore




People are people


So why should it be


You and I should get along so awfully




***




So we're different colours


And we're different creeds


And different people have different needs


It's obvious you hate me


Though I've done nothing wrong


I've never even met you so what could I have done




***




I can't understand


What makes a man


Hate another man


Help me understand




***




Help me understand




***




Now you're punching


And you're kicking


And you're shouting at me


I'm relying on your common decency


So far it hasn't surfaced


But I'm sure it exists


It just takes a while to travel


From your head to your fists









It Doesn't Matter




author: Martin Gore




I am happy


That I have you


Even though you're not here now


I know somewhere


You are dreaming


Though it's definitely not of me




***




It doesn't matter


If all this shatters


Nothing lasts forever


But I'm praying


That we're staying


Together




***




I am warmed


By your friendship


Even when you're far away


And I'm happy


In the knowledge


We may never see the day




***




When I kiss you


And you kiss me


Don't pretend you miss me


The worst kind


Of diseases mind


Is on filled with jealousy




***




If we should meet again


Don't try to solve the puzzle


Just lay down next to me


And please don't move a muscle




***




I will thank you


Most of all for


The respect you have for me


I'm embarrassed


It overwhelms me


Because I don't deserve any









Stories Of Old




author: Martin Gore




Take a look at unselected cases


You'll find love has been wrecked


By both sides compromising


Amounting to a disastrous effect




***




You hear stories of old


Of princes bold


With riches untold


Happy souls


Casting it all aside


To take some bride


To have the girl of their dreams


At their side


But not me


I couldn't do that


Not me


I'm not like that




***




I couldn't sacrifice


Anything at all


To love




***




I really like you


I'm attracted to you


The way you move


The things you do


I'll probably burn in hell


For saying this


But I'm really in heaven


Whenever we kiss


But Oh no!



You won't change me


You can try


For an eternity




***




I wouldn't sacrifice


Anything at all


To love




***




Now I've got things to do


You have too


And I've got to be me


You've got to be you


So take my hand


And feel these lips


And let's savour a kiss


Like we'd savour a sip


Of vintage wine


One more time


Let's surrender


To this love divine




***




But we won't sacrifice


Anything at all


To love









Somebody




author: Martin Gore




I want somebody to share


Share the rest of my life


Share my innermost thoughts


Know my intimate details


Someone who'll stand by my side


And give me support


And in return


She'll get my support


She will listen to me


When I want to speak


About the world we live in


And life in general


Though my views may be wrong


They may even be perverted


She will hear me out


And won't easily be converted


To my way of thinking


In fact she'll often disagree


But at the end of it all


She will understand me




***




I want somebody who cares


For me passionately


With every thought and with every breath


Someone who'll help me see things


In a different light


All the things I detest


I will almost like


I don't want to be tied


To anyone's strings


I'm carefully trying to steer clear


Of those things


But when I'm asleep


I want somebody


Who will put their arms around me


And kiss me tenderly


Though things like this


Make me sick


In a case like this


I'll get away with it









Master And Servant




author: Martin Gore




There's a new game


We like to play you see


A game with added reality


You treat me like a dog


Get me down on my knees




***




We call it master and servant


We call it master and servant




***




It's a lot like life


This play between the sheets


With you on top and me underneath


Forget all about equality




***




Let's play master and servant


Let's play master and servant




***




It's a lot like life


And that's what's appealing


If you despise that throwaway feeling


From disposable fun


Then this is the one




***




Domination's the name of the game


In bed or in life


They're both just the same


Except in one you're fulfilled


At the end of the day




***




Let's play master and servant


Let's play master and servant




***




Let's play master and servant


Come on master and servant









If You Want




author: Alan Wilder




Working week's come to its end


Party time is here again


Everyone can come if they want to


If you want to be with me


If you want to be with me


You can come with me if you want to




***




Exercise your basic right


We could build a building site


From the bricks of shame is built the hope


If you want to be with me


If you want to be with me


Even though you may still not want to




***




Let tomorrow and today


Bring a life of ecstacy


Wipe away your tears of confusion


If you want to be with me


If you want to be with me


You can come with me if you want to


Even though you still may not want to









Blasphemous Rumours




author: Martin Gore




Girl of 16


Whole life ahead of her


Slashed her wrists


Bored with life


Didn't succeed


Thank the lord


For small mercies




***




Fighting back the tears


Mother reads the note again


16 candles burn in her mind


She takes the blame


It's always the same


She goes down on her knees


And prays




***




I don't want to start


Any blasphemous rumours


But I think that God's


Got a sick sense of humour


And when I die


I expect to find Him laughing




***




Girl of 18


Fell in love with everything


Found new life


In Jesus Christ


Hit by a car


Ended up


On a life support machine




***




Summer's day


As she passed away


Birds were singing


In the summer sky


Then came the rain


And once again


A tear fell


From her mother's eye

In Your Memory




single: "People Are People" / author: Alan Wilder




Put up the barriers


Shut down your senses


Cover up with all of your pretences


See no evil


Your eyes are blunted


We are the hunters


We are the hunted




***




Place it in your memory


Leave it in your past


But don't forget




***




Taking a tumble


I'm taking a dive


Sometimes I stumble


when my mind's made up


Reaction levels


Seem strangely muted


Ordinary acts of fun have been diluted




***




Place it in your memory


Leave it in your past


But don't forget









Depeche Mode





(Set Me Free) Remotivate Me




single: "Master And Servant" / author: Martin Gore




Set me free




Remotivate me


Set me burning


After years in deep freeze


My body is yearning


For a new lease on life


Add a little spice




***




Set me free


Remotivate me




***




Give me a reason


To scream and shout


Give me something


To get excited about


When everything is looking dull


I'm sure it isn't impossible to




***




Set me free


Remotivate me




***




Don't think I'm impatient


Because I'm willing to wait


But something must happen


Before it gets too late


It could be my imagination


But wasn't there more than this numb sensation




***




Set me free


Remotivate me




***




Set me free
