Sea Of Sin









World In My Eyes




author: Martin Gore




Let me take you on a trip


Around the world and back


And you won't have to move


You just sit still




***




Now let your mind do the walking


And let my body do the talking


Let me show you the world in my eyes




***




I'll take you to the highest mountain


To the depths of the deepest sea


And we won't need a map


Believe me




***




Now let my body do the moving


And let my hands do the soothing


Let me show you the world in my eyes




***




That's all there is


Nothing more than you can feel now


That's all there is




***




Let me put you on a ship


On a long, long trip


Your lips close to my lips




***




All the islands in the ocean


All the heaven's in motion


Let me show you the world in my eyes




***




That's all there is


Nothing more than you can touch now


That's all there is




***




Let me show you the world in my eyes









Sweetest Perfection




author: Martin Gore




The sweetest perfection


To call my own


The slightest correction


Couldn't finely hone


The sweetest infection


Of body and mind


Sweetest injection


Of any kind




***




I stop and I stare too much


Afraid that I care too much


And I hardly dare to touch


For fear that the spell may be broken


When I need a drug in me


And it brings out the thug in me


Feel something tugging me


Then I want the real thing not tokens




***




Things you'd expect to be


Having effect on me


Pass undetectedly


But everyone knows what has got me


Takes me completely


Touches me sweetly


Reaches so deeply


I know that nothing can stop me




***




Sweetest perfection


An offer was made


An assorted collection


But I wouldn't trade




***




Takes me complelty


Touches so sweetly


Reaches so deeply


Nothing can stop me









Personal Jesus




author: Martin Gore




Reach out and touch faith




***




Your own personal Jesus


Someone to hear your prayers


Someone who cares


Your own personal Jesus


Someone to hear your prayers


Someone who's there




***




Feeling unknown


And you're all alone


Flesh and bone


By the telephone


Lift up the receiver


I'll make you a believer




***




Take second best


Put me to the test


Things on your chest


You need to confess


I will deliver


You know I'm a forgiver




***




Reach out and touch faith


Reach out and touch faith




***




Your own personal Jesus


Someone to hear your prayers


Someone who cares


Your own personal Jesus


Someone to hear your prayers


Someone who's there




***




Feeling unknown


And you're all alone


Flesh and bone


By the telephone


Lift up the receiver


I'll make you a believer


I will deliver


You know I'm a forgiver




***




Reach out and touch faith




***




Your own personal Jesus




***




Reach out and touch faith









Halo




author: Martin Gore




You wear guilt


Like shackles on your feet


Like a halo in reverse


I can feel


The discomfort in your seat


And in your head it's worse




***




There's a pain


A famine in your heart


An aching to be free


Can't you see


All love's luxuries


Are here for you and me




***




And when our worlds


They fall apart


When the walls come tumbling in


Though we may deserve it


It will be worth it




***




Bring your chains


Your lips of tragedy


And fall into my arms




***




And when our worlds


They fall apart


When the walls come tumbling in


Though we may deserve it


It will be worth it









Waiting For The Night




author: Martin Gore




According to the band's website, the original title for "Waiting for the Night" was "Waiting for the Night to Fall" and the rest of the title was omitted due to a printing error.




I'm waiting for the night to fall


I know that it will save us all


When everything's dark


Keeps us from the stark reality


I'm waiting for the night to fall


When everything is bearable


And there in the still


All that you feel


Is tranquility




***




There is a star in the sky


Guiding my way with its light


And in the glow of the moon


Know my deliverance will come soon




***




There is a sound in the calm


Someone is coming to harm


I press my hands to my ears


It's easier here just to forget fear




***




And when I squinted


The world seemed rose-tinted


And angels appeared to descend


To my surprise


With half-closed eyes


Things looked even better


Than when they were opened




***




Been waiting for the night to fall


Now everything is bearable


And here in the still


All that you hear


Is tranquility









Enjoy The Silence




author: Martin Gore




Words like violence


Break the silence


Come crashing in


Into my little world


Painful to me


Pierce right through me


Can't you understand


Oh my little girl




***




All I ever wanted


All I ever needed


Is here in my arms


Words are very unnecessary


They can only do harm




***




Vows are spoken


To be broken


Feelings are intense


Words are trivial


Pleasures remain


So does the pain


Words are meaningless


And forgettable




***




All I ever wanted


All I ever needed


Is here in my arms


Words are very unnecessary


They can only do harm









Interlude "Crucified"





author: Martin Gore




Instrumental









Policy Of Truth




author: Martin Gore




You had something to hide


Should have hidden it, shouldn't you


Now you're not satisfied


With what you're being put through


It's just time to pay the price


For not listening to advice


And deciding in your youth


On the policy of truth




***




Things could be so different now


It used to be so civilised


You will always wonder how


It could have been if you'd only lied


It's too late to change events


It's time to face the consequence


For delivering the proof


In the policy of truth




***




Never again is what you swore


The time before


Never again is what you swore


The time before




***




Now you're standing there tongue tied


You'd better learn your lesson well


Hide what you have to hide


And tell what you have to tell


You'll see your problems multiplied


If you continually decide


To faithfully pursue


The policy of truth




***




Never again is what you swore


The time before


Never again is what you swore


The time before









Blue Dress




author: Martin Gore




Put it on


And don't say a word


Put it on


The one that I prefer


Put it on


And stand before my eyes


Put it on


Please don't question why


Can you believe




***




Something so simple


Something so trivial


Makes me a happy man


Can't you understand


Say you believe


Just how easy


It is to please me




***




Because when you learn


You'll know what makes the world turn




***




Put it on


I can feel so much


Put it on


I don't need to touch


Put it on


Here before my eyes


Put it on


Because you realise


And you believe




***




Something so worthless


Serves a purpose


It makes me a happy man


Can't you understand


Say you believe


Just how easy


It is to please me




***




Because when you learn


You'll know what makes the world turn









Interlude

Instrumental









Clean




author: Martin Gore




Clean


The cleanest I've been


An end to the tears


And the in-between years


And the troubles I've seen




***




Now that I'm clean


You know what I mean


I've broken my fall


Put an end to it all


I've changed my routine


Now I'm clean




***




I don't understand


What destiny's planned


I'm starting to grasp


What is in my own hands


I don't claim to know


Where my holiness goes


I just know that I like


What is starting to show




***




Sometimes




***




As years go by


All the feelings inside


Twist and they turn


As they ride with the tide


I don't advise


And I don't criticise


I just know what I like


With my own eyes




***




Sometimes




***




Sometimes

Dangerous




single: "Personal Jesus" / author: Martin Gore




The things you do


Aren't good for my health


The moves you make


You make for yourself


The means you use


Aren't meant to confuse


Although they do


They're the ones that I would choose




***




And I wouldn't want it any other way


You wouldn't let me anyway




***




Dangerous


The way you leave me wanting more


Dangerous


That's what I want you for


Dangerous


When I am in your arms


Dangerous


Know I will come to harm




***




The lies you tell


Aren't meant to deceive


They're not there


For me to believe


I've heard


Your vicious words


You know by now


It takes a lot to see me hurt




***




And I couldn't take it any other way


But there's a price I have to pay

Happiest Girl




single: "World in My Eyes" / author: Martin Gore




Happiest girl I ever knew


Happiest girl I ever knew




***




Wanted to feel the joy


Flow between our lips


Wanted to feel the joy


Flow between our hips




***




Happiest girl I ever knew


Why do you smile the smile you do




***




Happiest girl I ever knew




***




Wanted to feel the joy


Pass between our eyes


Wanted to feel the joy


Pass between our thighs




***




And I would have to pinch her


Just to see if she was real


Just to watch the smile fade away


And see the pain she'd feel




***




Wanted to feel her joy


Feel it deep within


Wanted to feel her joy


Penetrate my skin




***




Happiest girl I ever knew


Why do you smile the smile you do









Sea Of Sin




single: "World in My Eyes" / author: Martin Gore




Sea of sin


I'm swimming in


And I'm taking a dive


My mind's in need


So my body feeds


And it keeps me alive


It gets better and better


As it gets wetter and wetter




***




Sea of sin


Know where you've been


But I don't care




***




Sea of sin


Through thick and thin


For better or worse


My mind's in need


So my body feeds


And it quenches my thirst


You look cheaper and cheaper


As we sink deeper and deeper




***




Sea of sin


Know where you've been


'Cause I've been there




***




Here under God's sky


His watchful eye


And all of the lies


My consolation prize




***




Sea of sin


My second skin


My home from home


When I'm in doubt


My hands reach out


And I'm never alone


It gets wetter and wetter


As it gets better and better




***




Sea of sin


Know where you've been


And I'm prepared


Sea of sin


Know where you've been


Yes I'm aware


Sea of sin


Know where you've been


'Cause I've been there


Sea of sin


Know where you've been


And I don't care


Sea of sin


Know where you've been


And I don't care
