Depeche mode: Violator All songs written by M.L. Gore (C)opyright Emmile Music ASCAP Lyrics Reprinted By Permision All Rights Reserved WORLD IN MY EYES Let me take you on a trip Around the world and back And you won't have to move You just sit still Now let your mind do the walking And let my body do the talking Let me show you the world in my eyes I'll take you to the highest mountian To the depths of the deepest sea We won't need a map, belive me Now let my body do the moving And my hands do the soothing Let me show you the world in my eyes That's all there is Nothing more than you can feel now That's all there is Let me put you on a ship On a long, long trip Your lips close to my lips All the islands in the ocean All the heaven's in the motion Let me show you the world in my eyes That's all there is Let me show you the world in my eyes THE SWEETEST PERFECTION The sweetest perfection To call my own The slightest correction Couldn't finely hone The sweetest infection Of body and mind Sweetest injection Of any kind I stop and stare too much Afraid that i care too much And i hardly dare to touch For the fear that the spell may be broken When i need a drug in me and it brings out the thug in me I fell something tugging me Then i wanted the real thing not tokens The sweetest perfection.... things you'd exspect to be Having effect on me Pass undectectedly But everyone knows what has got me Takes me completely Touches so sweetly Reaches so deeply I know that nothing can stop me Sweetest perfection An offer was made An assorted collection But i wouldn't trade The sweetest perfection... Takes me completely Touches so sweetly Reaches so deeply Nothing can stop me PERSONAL JESUS Your own personal jesus Someone to hear your prayers Someone who cares Your own Personal jesus Someone to hear your prayers Someone who's there Feeling unkown And your'e all alone Flesh & bone by the telephone Lift up the receiver I'll make you a beliver Take second best Put me to the test Things on your chest You need to confess I will deliver You know i'm a forgiver Reach out and touch faith Reach out and touch faith Your own personal jesus... Feeling unkown And your'e all alone Flesh & bone by the telephone Lift up the receiver I'll make you a beliver Take second best Put me to the test Things on your chest You need to confess I will deliver You know i'm a forgiver Reach out and touch faith HALO You wear guilt Like shacles on your feet Like a halo in reverse I can feel The dis comfort in your seat And in your head it's worse There's a pain A famine in your heart An aching to be free Can't you see All love's luxuries Are here for you and me And when our worlds They fall apart When the walls come tumbling in Though we may deserve it It will be worth it Bring your chains Your lips of tragedy And fall into my arms And when our worlds fall apart When the wall come tumbling in Though we may deserve it It will be worth it WAITING FOR THE NIGHT I'm waiting for the night to fall I know that it will save us all When everything is dark Keeps us from the stark reality I'm waiting for the night to fall When everything is bearable And there in the still All that you feel is tranqillity There is a star in the sky Guideing my way with its light And in the glow of the moon I know my deliverance will come soon I'm waiting for the night... There is a sound in the calm Someone is comeing to harm I press my hands to my ears It's easier here just to forget fear And when i squinted The world seemed rose-tinted And angels appeared to descend To my surprise With half-closed eyes Things looked even better Than when that were opened Been waiting for the night to fall I knew that it would save us all Now everything's dark Keeps us from the stark reality Been waiting for the night to fall Now everything is bearable And there in the still All that you feel Is tranqullity ENJOY THE SILENCE Words like violence Break the silence Come crashing in Into my world Painful to me Pierce right though me Can't you understand Oh my little girl All i ever wanted All i ever needed Is here in my arms Words are very unnecessary They can only do harm Vows are spoken To be broken Feelings are intense Words are trival Pleasure remain So does the pain Words are meaningless And forgetable All i ever wanted... Enjoy the silence THE POLICY OF TRUTH You hade something to hide Should have hidden it, shouldn't you Now your'e not satisfied With what your'e being put though It's just time to pay the price For not listening to advice And decideing in your youth On the policy of truth Things colud be so different now It used to be so civilized You will allways wonder how It could have been if you'd only lied it's too late to change events It's time to face the consequence For delivering the proof In the policy of truth Never again Is what you swore The time before Never again Is what you swore The time before Now your'e standing there tounge tied You'd better learn you lesson well Hide what you have to hide And tell what you have to tell You'll see your problems multipled If you continually decide To faithfully pursue The policy of truth Never again... BLUE DRESS Put it on And don't say a word Put it on the one that i prefer Put it on And stand before my eyes Put it on Please dont question why Can you belive something so simple something so trival Makes me a happy man Can't you understand Say you belive Just how easy It is to please me Because when you learn You'll know what makes the world turn Put it on I can feel so much Put it on I don't need to touch Put it on Here before my eyes Put it on Because you realise And you belive Something so worthless Serves a purpose It makes me a happy man Can't you understand Say you belive Just how easy It is to please me Because when you learn You'll know what makes the world turn CLEAN Clean The cleanest i've been An end to the tears Ans the in-between years and the troubles i've seen Now that i'm clean You know what i mean I've broken my fall Put an end to it all I've changed ny routine Now i'm clean I dont understand What my destiny's planed I'm starting to grasp What is in my own hands I don't claim to know Where my holiness goes I just know that i like What is starting to show Sometimes Clean... As years go by All the feelings inside Twist and they turn As they ride with the tide I dont advise And i dont criticise I just know what i like With my own eyes Sometimes Clean... Sometimes
