Depeche Mode









Going Backwards



author: Martin Gore


We are not there yet

We have not evolved

We have no respect

We have lost control

We're going backwards

Ignoring the realities

Going backwards

Are you counting all the casualties


***


We are not there yet

Where we need to be

We are still in debt

To our insanities

We're going backwards

Turning back our history

Going backwards

Piling on the misery


***


We can track in all the satellites

Seeing all in plain sight

Watch men die in real time

But we have nothing inside

We feel nothing inside


***


We are not there yet

We have lost our soul

The course has been set

We're digging our own hole

We're going backwards

Armed with new technology

Going backwards

to a cavemen mentality


***


We can emulate on consoles

Killings we can control

For senses that have been dulled

Because there's nothing inside

We feel nothing inside







Wheres The Revolution



author: Martin Gore


You've been kept down

You've been pushed 'round

You've been lied to

You've been fed truths

Who's making your decisions

You or your religion

Your government, your countries

You patriotic junkies


***


Where's the revolution

Come on people

You're letting me down

Where's the revolution

Come on people

You're letting me down


***


You've been pissed on

For too long

Your rights abused

Your views refused

They manipulate and threaten

With terror as a weapon

Scare you till you're stupefied

Wear you down until you're on their side


***


Where's the revolution

Come on people

You're letting me down

Where's the revolution

Come on people

You're letting me down


***


The train is coming

The train is coming

The train is coming

The train is coming

So get on board

Get on board

Get on board

Get on board

The engine's humming

The engine's humming

The engine's humming

The engine's humming

So get on board

Get on board

Get on board

Get on board


***


Where's the revolution

Come on people

You're letting me down

Where's the revolution

Come on people

You're letting me down







The Worst Crime



author: Martin Gore


There's a lynching in the square

You will have to join us

Everyone's going to be there

We're setting up the truss

Once there were solutions

Now we have no excuses

It got lost in confusion

So we're preparing the nooses


***


And oh, we had so much time

How could we commit the worst crime


***


Blame misinformation

Misguided leaders

Apathetic hesitation

Uneducated readers

For whatever reasons

We now find ourselves in this

We are all charged with treason

There is no one left to hiss


***


And oh, we had so much time

How could we commit the worst crime


***


We're the judge and the jury

The hangman, the convict

It's too late for fury

Our indictment was handpicked

So step up to the gallows

And accept your sentence

For being so shallow

You must pay your penance


***


And oh we had so much time

How could we commit the worst crime






Scum



author: Martin Gore


Hey scum, hey scum

What have you ever done for anyone

Hey scum, hey scum

What are you gonna do when karma comes


***


A' calling

And you're falling

And there's nowhere left to run

And you're weeping

And not sleeping

And you're begging for your gun


***


Pull the trigger


***


Hey scum, hey scum

What have you ever done for anyone

Hey scum, hey scum

What are you doing judgement time has come


***


You kneeling

And you squealing

And you're looking for someone

To bear witness

To your goodness

You can't even find your son


***


Pull the trigger

Pull the trigger


***


You wouldn't even offer up your crumbs


***


To the dying

And the crying

You're dead inside, you're numb

You're hollow

And shallow

Your empty life is done


***


Pull the trigger

Hey scum, hey scum

Pull the trigger







You Move



author: Martin Gore, Dave Gahan


We had something but was yesterday

temptations knocking at my door.

You talk to me about the life we could've had

but we don't have that life no more.


***


But I like the way you move


yeah I like the way you move for me tonight

I like the way you move

I like the way you move for me tonight

Alright now.


***


If you give me something that you and i can play

let me ring your bell

I don't need you i don't need your ball and chain

there's no water in that well.


***


But i like the way you move

I like the way you move for me tonight

I like the way you move

I like the way you move for me tonight

Alright yeah

All night

Alright now

All night.


***


Imagination is all it takes

you came knocking at my door

you talk to me about the life that we should have

you know, you could have given more.


***


But i like the way you move

yeah i like the way you move for me tonight

yeah i like the way you move

I like the way you move for me tonight

Alright now

All night.







Cover Me



author: Dave Gahan, Peter Gordeno, Christian Eigner


I've felt better

I've been up all night

I can feel it coming

the morning light

The air is so cold here

it's so hard to breathe

we better take cover

will you cover me.


***


Way up here with Northern lights

beyond you and me

I dreamt of us in another life

one we've never reached.


***


You know we're sinking

we could fade away

I'm not going down with you

not today

the air is so cold here

too cold to see

we have to take cover

cover me


***


Way up here with the Northern lights

beyond these broken bars

I pictured us in another life

Where we're all super stars.







Eternal



author: Martin Gore


Oh little one

I will protect you

And surround you with my love

As well as any man can

As well as any man could

I will be there for you

Always

And when the black cloud

Rises

And the radiation falls

I will look you in the eye

And kiss you

And give you all my love

As well as any man can

As well as any man could

You are my eternal

Eternal

Love







Poison Heart



author: Dave Gahan, Peter Gordeno, Christian Eigner


You have poison in heart

yeah i'm sure of it

I knew right from the start

from the moment we met

You know we have have to break up

you'll always be alone


***


You know you've never ever been a friend

now we're closer to the edge

oh oh oh no

oh oh oh no.


***


There's poison in your mind

yeah, i'm sure of it

you've never been that kind

with all due respect

you know it's time to break up

you'll always be alone


***


You know you've never ever been a friend

now we're closer to the end

oh oh oh no

oh oh oh no.


***


We've been walking far too long this icy road

my broken heart is colder than a stone

I know you've never ever been a friend

now you've pushed me to the end


***


oh oh oh no

oh oh oh no.







So Much Love



author: Martin Gore


I can't lie

I can't fake

I can't act

My hands shake

There's disclosure

I must make

There is so much love in me


***


I can't run

I have tried

There's a thorn

in my side

There is something

I can't hide

There is so much love in me


***


You can forsake me

Try to break me

But you can't shake me

No

You can despise me

demonise me

It satisfies me

So


***


There's a fire

In my veins

The desire

causes pain

I will say it

Again

There is so much love in me


***


You can forsake me

Try to break me

But you can't shake me

No

You can despise me

demonise me

It satisfies me

So







Poorman



author: Martin Gore


Hey, there's no news

Poor man still got the blues

He's walking 'round in worn out shoes

With nothing to lose


***


Hey, he's on the road

Pushing along his heavy load

Heading for no fixed abode

Shuffling slow


***


Corporations get the breaks

Keeping almost everything they make

Tell us just how long it's going to take

For it to trickle down

When will it trickle down


***


Hey, he's on the street

Laying in the snow and sleet

Begging for something to eat

And looking beat


***


Hey, passers-by

They don't care to catch his eye

Couldn't even tell you why

Or what happening inside


***


Corporations get the breaks

Keeping almost everything they make

Tell us just how long it's going to take

For it to trickle down

When will it trickle down







No More (This Is The Last Time)



author: Dave Gahan, Kurt Uenala


One more ride

I can't explain

my hesitation

we stop and start again

repeat the process we repeat the lie

time and time again

by and by.


***


This is the last time

I'll say goodbye

the last time

then we won't have to lie

the last time

call it what you want

You don't mean a thing to me no more.


***


You go your way

I'll go mine

we've walked this line together

for the longest time

we've climbed the mountain

in so many days

you reach the top

and slowly fade away


***


This is the last time

I'll say goodbye

the last time

then we won't have to lie

the last time

call it what you want

you don't mean a thing to me no more.


***


Our crimes

will pass us by

Crimes

They all fade to die

All those memories


***


All our pain

Will slowly disappear

like the falling rain.

This is the last time

I'll say goodbye

The last time

then we won't have to lie

the last time

well this is the last time

The last time







Fail



author: Martin Gore


People

Do we call this trying

We're hopeless

Forget the denying

Our souls are corrupt

Our minds are messed up

Our consciences bankrupt

Oh, we’re fucked


***


People

What are we thinking

It's shameful

Our standards are sinking

We're barely hanging on

Our spirit has gone

And once where it shone

I hear a lonesome song


***


People

How are we coping

It's futile

To even start hoping

That justice will prevail

That truth will tip the scales

Our dignity has sailed

Oh, we've failed
