Depeche Mode









Barrel Of A Gun




author: Martin Gore




Do you mean this horny creep


Set upon weary feet


Who looks in need of sleep


That doesn't come




***




This twisted, tortured mess


This bed of sinfulness


Who's longing for some rest


And feeling numb




***




What do you expect of me


What is it you want


Whatever you've planned for me


I'm not the one




***




A vicious appetite


Visits me each night


And won't be satisfied


Won't be denied




***




An unbearable pain


A beating in my brain


That leaves the mark of Cain


Right here inside




***




What am I supposed to do


When everything that I've done


Is leading me to conclude


I'm not the one




***




Whatever I've done


I've been staring down the barrel of a gun




***




Is there something you need from me


Are you having your fun


I never agreed to be


Your holy one




***




Whatever I've done


I've been staring down the barrel of a gun









The Love Thieves




author: Martin Gore




Oh the tears that you weep


For the poor tortured souls


Who fall at your feet


With all their love begging bowls


All the clerks and the tailors


The sharks and the sailors


All good at their trades


But they'll always be failures




***




Alms for the poor


For the wretched disciples


And the love that they swore


With their hearts on the bible


Beseeching the honour


To sit at your table


And feast on your holiness


As long as they're able




***




Love needs its martyrs


Needs its sacrifices


They live for your beauty


And pay for their vices


Love will be the death of


My lonely soul brothers


But their spirits shall live on in


The hearts of all lovers




***




You're holding court


With your lips and your smile


Your body's a halo


Their minds are on trial


Sure as adam is eve


Sure as Jonah turned whaler


They're crooked love thieves


And you are their jailor




***




Love needs its martyrs


Needs its sacrifices


They live for your beauty


And pay for their vices


Love will be the death of


My lonely soul brothers


But their spirit shall live on in


The hearts of all lovers









Home




author: Martin Gore




Here is a song


From the wrong side of town


Where I'm bound


To the ground


By the loneliest sound


That pounds from within


And is pinning me down




***




Here is a page


From the emptiest stage


A cage or the heaviest cross ever made


A gauge of the deadliest trap ever laid




***




And I thank you


For bringing me here


For showing me home


For singing these tears


Finally I've found


That I belong here




***




The heat and the sickliest


Sweet smelling sheets


That cling to the backs of my knees


And my feet


But I'm drowning in time


To a desperate beat




***




And I thank you


For bringing me here


For showing me home


For singing these tears


Finally I've found


That I belong




***




Feels like home


I should have known


From my first breath




***




God send the only true friend


I call mine


Pretend that I'll make amends


The next time


Befriend the glorious end of the line




***




And I thank you


For bringing me here


For showing me home


For singing these tears


Finally I've found


That I belong here









It's No Good




author: Martin Gore




I'm going to take my time


I have all the time in the world


To make you mine


It is written in the stars above


The gods decree


You'll be right here by my side


Right next to me


You can run, but you cannot hide




***




Don't say you want me


Don't say you need me


Don't say you love me


It's understood


Don't say you're happy


Out there without me


I know you can't be


'cause it's no good




***




I'll be fine


I'll be waiting patiently


Till you see the signs


And come running to my open arms


When will you realise


Do we have to wait till our worlds collide


Open up your eyes


You can't turn back the tide




***




Don't say you want me


Don't say you need me


Don't say you love me


It's understood


Don't say you're happy


Out there without me


I know you can't be


'cause it's no good




***




I'm going to take my time


I have all the time in the world


To make you mine


It is written in the stars above




***




Don't say you want me


Don't say you need me


Don't say you love me


It's understood


Don't say you're happy


Out there without me


I know you can't be


'cause it's no good

Useless




author: Martin Gore




Well it's about time


It's beginning to hurt


Time you made up your mind


Just what is it all worth




***




All my useless advice


All my hanging around


All your cutting down to size


All my bringing you down




***




Watch the clock on the wall


Feel the slowing of time


Hear a voice in the hall


Echoing in my mind




***




All your stupid ideals


You've got your head in the clouds


You should see how it feels


With your feet on the ground




***




Here I stand the accused


With your fist in my face


Feeling tired and bruised


With the bitterest taste




***




All my useless advice


All my hanging around


All your cutting down to size


All my bringing you down




***




All your stupid ideals


You've got your head in the clouds


You should see how it feels


With your feet on the ground









Sister Of Night




author: Martin Gore




Sister of night


When the hunger descends


And your body's a fire


An inferno that never ends


An eternal flame


That burns in desire's name




***




Sister of night


When the longing returns


Giving voice to the flame


Calling you through flesh that burns


Breaking down your will


To move in for the kill




***




Oh sister


Come for me


Embrace me


Assure me


Hey sister


I feel it too


Sweet sister


Just feel me


I'm trembling


You heal me


Hey sister


I feel it too




***




Sister of night


In your saddest dress


As you walk through the light


You're desperate to impress


So you slide to the floor


Feeling insecure




***




Sister of night


With the loneliest eyes


Tell yourself it's alright


He'll make such a perfect prize


But the cold light of day


Will give the game away




***




Oh sister


Come for me


Embrace me


Assure me


Hey sister


I feel it too


Sweet sister


Just feel me


I'm trembling


You heal me


Hey sister


I feel it too

Freestate




author: Martin Gore




I can hear your soul crying


Listen to your spirit sighing


I can feel your desperation


Emotional deprivation




***




Let yourself go


Let yourself go


Let your feelings show




***




Picking up the conversation


Deep in your imagination


Tune into the lonely voices


Talking of their only choices




***




Let yourself go


Let yourself go


Let your spirit grow




***




Step out of your cage


And onto the stage


It's time to start


Playing your part


Freedom awaits


Open the gates


Open your mind


Freedom's a state




***




I can taste the tears falling


The bitterness inside you calling


Yearning for a liberation


Emotional emancipation




***




Let yourself go


Let yourself go


Let your senses overflow




***




Step out of your cage


And onto the stage


It's time to start


Playing your part


Freedom awaits


Open the gates


Open your mind


Freedom's a state









The Bottom Line




author: Martin Gore




Like a cat


Dragged in from the rain


Who goes straight back out


To do it all over again


I'll be back for more


It's something


That is out of our hands


Something we will never understand


It's a hidden law


The apple falls


Destiny calls


I follow you




***




Like a pawn


On the eternal board


Who's never quite sure


What he's moved towards


I walk blindly on


And heaven is in front of me


Your heaven beckons me enticingly


When I arrive


It's gone


The river flows


The wise man knows


I follow you




***




I'm yearning


I'm burning


I feel love's wheels turning




***




Like a moth on love's bright light


I will get burned


each and every night


I'm dying to(o)



The sun will shine


The bottom line


I follow you









Insight




author: Martin Gore




This is an insight


Into my life


This is a strange flight


I'm taking


My true will


Carries me along




***




This is a soul dance


Embracing me


This is the first chance


To put things right


Moving on


Guided by the light




***




And the spirit of love


Is rising within me


Talking to you now


Telling you clearly


The fire still burns




***




Wisdom of ages


Rush over me


Heighten my senses


Enlighten me


Lead me on


Eternally




***




And the spirit of love


Is rising within me


Talking to you now


Telling you clearly


The fire still burns




***




I'm talking to you now


The fire still burns


Whatever you do now


You've got to give love


The world still turns




***




I'm talking to you now
