Depeche Mode quote

Plans made in the nursery
Can change the course of history

DEPECHE MODE, "Shouldn't Have Done That"

Belief is the way
The way of the innocent
And when I say innocent
I should say naive


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

DEPECHE MODE, "Blasphemous Rumours"

Things must change
We must rearrange them
Or we'll have to estrange them
All that I'm saying
A game's not worth playing
Over and over again

DEPECHE MODE, "The Sun and the Rainfall"

You wear guilt
Like shackles on your feet
Like a halo in reverse


Soap won't wash away your shame.


I've read more than a hundred books
Seeing love mentioned many thousand times
But despite all the places I've looked
It's still no clearer
I'm still no nearer
The meaning of love

DEPECHE MODE, "The Meaning of Love"

You can't change the world
But you can change the facts
And when you change the facts
You change points of view
If you change points of view
You may change a vote
And when you change a vote
You may change the world


Pain and misery always hit the spot
Knowing you can't lose what you haven't got


Strange highs and strange lows
That's how my love goes
Will you give it to me
Will you take the pain
I will give to you
Again and again
And will you return it

DEPECHE MODE, "Strangelove"

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world

DEPECHE MODE, "Enjoy the Silence"

Pain is ready, pain is waiting
Primed to do it's educating


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

DEPECHE MODE, "People are People"

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

DEPECHE MODE, "Policy of Truth"

To the soul's desires
The body listens
What the flesh requires
Keeps the heart imprisoned

DEPECHE MODE, "When the Body Speaks"

If I could just hide
The sinner inside
And keep him denied
How sweet life would be
If I could be free
From the sinner in me

DEPECHE MODE, "The Sinner in Me"

What use is a souvenir
Of something we once had
When all it ever does is
Make me feel bad?

DEPECHE MODE, "A Photograph of You"

The narrowest path
Is always the holiest


I surrender all control
To the desire that consumes me whole
And leads me by the hand to infinity
That lies in wait at the heart of me

DEPECHE MODE, "Higher Love"

The damage is done
And I feel diseased
I'm down on my knees
And I need forgiveness
Someone to bear witness
To the goodness within
Beneath the sin
Although I may flirt
With all kinds of dirt
To the point of disease
Now I want release
From all this decay
Take it away

DEPECHE MODE, "To Have and To Hold"

I was born with the wrong sign
In the wrong house
With the wrong ascendancy
I took the wrong road
That led to the wrong tendencies
I was in the wrong place at the wrong time
For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme
On the wrong day of the wrong week
I used the wrong method with the wrong technique


Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

DEPECHE MODE, "Enjoy the Silence"

Death is everywhere
The more I look
The more I see
The more I feel
A sense of urgency

DEPECHE MODE, "Fly on the Windscreen"
