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 »

There's more besides the joyrides
Little house in the countryside
Understand, learn to demand
Compromise, and sometimes lie

Get the balance right
Get the balance right

Be responsible, respectable
Stable but gullible
Concerned and caring
Help the helpless
But always remain
Ultimately selfish

Get the balance right
Get the balance right

You think you've got a hold of it all
You haven't got a hold at all
When you reach the top,
Get ready to drop
Prepare yourself for the fall
(The fall)
It's almost predictable

Don't tend this way
Don't tend that way
Straight down the middle until next Thursday
First to the left
Back to the right
Twist and turn until you got it right

Get the balance right (4x)
