Walking in My Shoes
Depeche Mode Lyrics


I would tell you about the things
They put me through
The pain I've been subjected to
But the lord himself would blush
The countless feasts laid at my feet
Forbidden fruits for me to eat
But I think your pulse would start to rush

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes

Morality would frown upon
Decency look down upon
The scapegoat fate's made of me
But I promise now, my judge and jurors
My intentions couldn't have been purer
My case is easy to see

I'm not looking for a clearer conscience
Peace of mind after what I've been through
And before we talk of any repentance
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps
Keep the same appointments I kept
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes
If you try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

There are 7 "ugly" guys in the video, and every of them represent one of 7 deadly sins. It is seen who is who by their acting:
1. The tall guy on 3:38 and on 4:06 is Pride . He always looks from the top on others, with scorn and selfish smirk. Wearing black cloth, which admits his high status.
2. The guy on the right on 2:09 and 4:14 is Greed . He looks on everyone with suspicion, like everyone want to steal from him. He's two times captured with Envy.
3. Guy on 0:58 on the right and 3:41 is Glutony , cuz he's fat u know.
4. Guy on 0:58 on the left is apparently Sloth , because he's very thin which means he doesn't work and lazy. He's captured next to Glutony, apparently having something in common (laziness, inability to work).
5. Little guys on 1:46, 3:38 and on 2:09, 4:14 are Envy . Not sure why there are two Envys. They're always sad, eyes down, and jealous, because they're little, having inferiority complex. Its also interesting that one is captured next to Greedy and other next to Pride guy. One is jealous of Greedy guy's richness and other of Pride's high status.
6. Small fat guy on 0:54 and 1:51 is Anger probably. He looks pretty evil and creepy. He's captured alone. I don't see anyone fit in Anger more than him.
7. The guy on 3:54 probably Lust . Very insidious look. Don't see anyone who would fit in Lust more than him too.
The main couple characters apparently are priests, but they fall to the sins, and remain in hell with the sins (3:26).
Have no clue what these bird masks mean, however.

The masks were filled with herbs and spices and such to ward off the plague. Nasty little nuisance it were.
