Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode ( /dɨˈpɛʃ/) are an English electronic music band formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex. The group's original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan (lead vocals, occasional songwriter since 2005), Martin Gore (keyboards, guitar, vocals, chief songwriter after 1981), Andy Fletcher (keyboards) and Vince Clarke (keyboards, chief songwriter 1980–81). Clarke left the band after the release of their 1981 debut album, Speak & Spell, and was replaced by Alan Wilder (keyboards, drums, occasional songwriter) with Gore taking over songwriting. Wilder left the band in 1995; Gahan, Gore, and Fletcher have since continued as a trio. more »

They're almost falling over you
Why don't they call a truce
What ever they are trying to do
Its of little use
They're drowning you in compliments
Trying to furnish proof
Although they speak with eloquence
There is little truth

You're bright, you're strong, you know the right from wrong
At least to some degree
You're wise, you're tough, you've heard their lies enough
You smile in sympathy

I'm watching your serenity
The way your so transense
The tidiest absurdities
Your patience never ends
And as the night begins to fade
Your heading for the door
Followed by sad parade
Your on your own once more

[Chorus: x2]
