Depeche Mode Lyrics

Here on the stand
With the book in my hand
Truth on my side

Hand me my sentence
I'll show no repentance
I'll suffer with pride

If for honesty
You want apologies
I don't sympathize
If for kindness
You substitute blindness
Please open your eyes

Because my duty
Was always to beauty
That was my crime

Feel elation
To know I can trust this
Fix of injustice
Time after time

If you see purity
As immaturity
Well, it's no surprise
If for kindness
You substitute blindness
Please open your eyes

I know it was he's darkest point of Dave's life when this was made 😥
But I think thats why we can hear and FEEL the emotions (especially) so well from that time /& devotional tour ❤️😔🙏 (just my pov)

A song like this, I think needs that dark emotions we all goes through, so I feel even though he suffered tremendously 😔 this song is a great example when music, a song is believable & pierce into your heart 😊

And this song is in deed believable and one of the gratest tracks made in music history 👍

Just this video/sing shows a fractions of Depeches Modes greatness.
The uniqueness with them is that whatever experiment they did/do with trying out like here a Gospel inspred song, you STILL hear without a doubt it's DM 👍 👏👏👏

It's like watching Van Gogh's paintings ans see all tbe different things he painted, he didnt inly paint landscape but also a shoe. But when you look at it you KNOW it's Van Gogh! 🤔

It's the same with DM, whatever they make, you KNOW its them!

I even remember I had to listen to Personal Jesus twice to be sure I really heard acoustic guitar, but it was and they keep reinventing themselves.

They're simply geniuses and derserve much more credit! And sad for those who missed out on following the growth of the band.

But they've been diibg this successfully for long 😁🙏 and gain new fans each day. I just "met up" with a heavy letal band who's inspiration us Depeche Mode & I'm not into Japanese music 😅 I could heat they are inspired by DM & sounds okay 🎶✌️

I'm glad my kids know who DM are & enjoy some of their songs, they're still finding their own style etc, I mran my kids, lol 😂

Anywho.... This video shows their range! Wether it's: People e are People, I want you know, Precious, Barrel of a Gun, Just can't get enough, Enjoy the Silence, Blasphemous Rumors, Personal Jesus, Higher, I feel you, Strange love, ,Wrong, Heaven, Wheres the Revelution and I could keep going on & on & on 😅 but the range is enormous and sounds from an engine from a Porsche , bicycles, glasbeads and oebbles been thrown, they tey everything
Even the lyrics shows they take chances, the expansion of life experiences, the darkness in many of their lyrics and others so uplifting .... 🎶

Soory for long comment but I love Depeche Mode 😁💕✌️

Great that this band conbects us all in some way no matter where we come from 😊❤️🙏
