Barrel of a Gun
Depeche Mode Lyrics


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
Whatever I've done
I've been staring down the barrel of a gun
Whatever I've done
Whatever, whatever

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
Whatever I've done
Whatever, whatever
I've been staring down the barrel of a gun
Whatever I've done
Whatever, whatever
I've been staring down the barrel of a gun

I remember this time as if it was yesterday, I was like 17,
It was a very dark time in my life and this album in general was the background music in many ways,
I've been a Depeche fan since I don't know, always I guess,
but one thing that I always liked about them was that versatility to evolve from one album to another,
when I saw this video especially at the beginning
I felt so identified
knowing exactly that Dave was going through drug "problems" just like me
and
that part when you want to be clean is suffocating and in bed you go from one place to another between dreams and nightmares, sweats and creativity, is horrible but beautiful

and it has nothing to do with NIN's Closer or any other album by Trent, this is Dave and Martin inspiration, period.

Imagine hearing this for the first time if your first exposure to Depeche Mode was "Just Can't Get Enough"

@Ş. Even there, Dave sounds relatively the same, but in this song, he sounds completely different from both Black Celebration AND Speak & Spell!

It happened to me. I knew about Depeche Mode but I never really listened to them when I was kid. Then I saw this music video on Viva and as soon as I heard that guitar, I knew it was Depeche Mode.

At the start of its career, DM looked like a boy band. They've come a long way, haven't they.
