A Pain That I'm Used To
Depeche Mode Lyrics


I'm not sure what I'm looking for anymore
I just know that I'm harder to console
I don't see who I'm trying to be instead of me
But the key is a question of control

Can you say what you're trying to play anyway
I just pay while you're breaking all the rules
All the signs that I find have been underlined
Devils thrive on the drive that is fueled

[Chorus]
All this running around, well it's getting me down
Just give me a pain that I'm used to
I don't need to believe all the dreams you conceive
You just need to achieve something that rings true

There's a hole in your soul like an animal
With no conscience, repentance, oh no
Close your eyes, pay the price for your paradise
Devils feed on the seeds of the soul

I can't conceal what I feel, what I know is real
No mistaking the faking, I care
With a prayer in the air I will leave it there
On a note full of hope not despair

[Chorus: x2]

I don't need to believe all the dreams you conceive
You just need to achieve something that rings true

Tommaso Moro

DaFuq!?Boom!

The mix for the video is very different to the one on album. Is this single mix? I can't find it anywhere!

@Pelger they usually release an album of "Singles" every 10 - 20 years that is theat single versions. I have one that is a 3 CD set, but is at least 20 years old by now. Worth a look!

Pelger

I think "strangelove" "in your room" and "useless" are better in their single or video versions, I don't know why the album versions are different, they should use the same version for everything, it drives me insane to know that if you love a song and buy the cd, maybe you are not getting the exact one you love.

@Sgt. Smith I haven't heard the remix of Behind the Wheel. It's such a good track, it would be a shame to spoil it. :(

Sgt. Smith

@blackpeter70 I actually like polished "In your room" better... unlike "Behind the wheel"... My god, in my opinion, new version is just... I don't know what to say, it ain't awful, but it's... not that bad, but still worse than the original.

blackpeter70

Yeah. They usually give their songs a polish when they release them as singles, sometimes it's better (Useless), sometimes not (In Your Room).

I get older, they get older, but there music will never gets old.
