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
