Depeche Mode - Delta Machine Lyrics






Welcome To My World

Welcome to my world
Step right through the door
Leave your tranquilizers at home
You don't need them anymore

All the dramaqueens have gone
And the devil got dismayed
He backed up and fled this town
His masterplan delayed

And if you stay a while
I'll penetrate your soul
I'll bleed into your dreams
You'll want to lose control
I'll weep into your eyes
I'll make your vision sing
I'll open endless skies
And ride your broken wings
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world

Watch the sunrise set
And the moon begin to blush
I'm naked in a search
Translucently too much

And I hold you in my arms
I keep you by my side
And we sleep the devil's sleep
Just to keep him satisfied

And if you stay a while
I'll penetrate your soul
I'll bleed into your dreams
You'll want to lose control
I'll weep into your eyes
I'll make your vision sing
I'll open endless skies
And ride your broken wings
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world

Angel

The angel of love was upon me
Oh Lord, I felt so small
The legs beneath me weaken
And I began to crawl
Confused and contented
I slithered around
Reveal is beyond me
I was lost
I was found

The angel of love was upon me
Oh Lord, I felt so weak
I felt my tongue within my mouth
And I began to speak
A strange kind of language
I don't understand
A bubbling fountain
I couldn't have planned

Oh, leave me here forevermore
I found the peace I've been searching for

The angel of love was upon me
Oh Lord, I felt so high
I swear I could have reach up
Place my hands upon the sky
Rain in the rainbow
Was following me around
With elevated senses
I can see and taste sound

The angel of love was upon me
Oh Lord, I felt so clean
Like a preacher on Sunday
My heart was serene
I wade into the water
I was bathed, I was drowned
Like the sailors before me
I knelt down on the ground

Oh, leave me here forevermore
I found the peace I've been searching for
Oh, let me sleep forevermore
I found the peace I've been searching for

Heaven

Sometimes I slide away, silently
I slowly lose myself
Over and over

Take comfort in my skin, endlessly
Surrender to my will
Forever and ever

I dissolve in trust
I will sing with joy
I will end up dust
I'm in heaven

I stand in golden rays, radiantly
I burn a fire of love
Over and over

Reflecting endless light, relentlessly
I have embraced the flame
Forever and ever

I will scream The Word
Jump into the void
I will guide the world
Up to heaven

Secret To The End

When I look at you
I'm probably the same way too
I got a feeling that it's coming soon
Could this be the end?

And when I look around this room
It must be something I can do
Can I convince you that it isn't true?
We've come to the end

Oh did I disappoint you?
I wanted to believe it's true
Oh the book of love
Was not enough to see us through

The problem should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (could've been you)
Should've been you
If it hadn't been me
(Could've been you, could've been you)
Should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (could've been you)
Should've been you
If it hadn't been me

It seems so obvious to you
You're feeling what I'm feeling too
The final chapter in the contract expires soon
We've come to the end

Thank God I'm not the same as you
You always know exactly what to do
Is who I am, is not for you
We've come to the end

Oh did I disappoint you?
I wanted to believe it's true
Oh the book of love
Was not enough to see us through

The problem should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (could've been you)
Should've been you
If it hadn't been me
(Would've been you, could've been you)
Should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (could've been you)
Should've been you
If it hadn't been me

(Could've been you, could've been you)
Should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (could've been you)
Should've been you
If it hadn't been me
(Could've been you, could've been you)
If it hadn't been me
(Could've been you, could've been you)
If it hadn't been me
Should've been you (should've been you)
(Could've been you, should've been you)
If it hadn't been me
(Could've been you, could've been you)
If it hadn't been me

My Little Universe

My little universe is expanding
Slowly
Those who know me
Say I'm growing every day

Beautiful emptiness surrounds me
I take small steps
I'm making progress in a nonspecific way

Here I am king
I decide everything
I let no one in
No one
No one
No one

Limited consciousness preserves me
It protects me
Just connects enough to keep the walls at bay

My little universe is expanding
Slowly
Those who know me
Say I'm growing every day

Here I am king
I decide everything
I let no one in
No one
No one
No one

Slow

Slow, slow, slow as you can go
So I can feel all I want to know
Slow, slow
I go with your flow

Let the world keep its carnival pace
I prefer to look into your beautiful face
What a waste

At the stars continue to fly by
I don't have one desire to understand why
I don't try

Slow, slow, slow as you can go
I want my senses to overflow
Slow, slow
And doesn't it show

I don't need a race in my bed
The speed's in my heart and the speed's in my head
Instead

It's tempting for fools to rush in
When something's so good why should we rush a thing
It's a sin

Slow, slow, slow as you can go
That's how I like it
I like it

I don't need a race in my bed
It speeds in my heart and speeds in my head
Instead

Slow, slow, slow as you can go
That's how I like it
I like it
That's how I like it
That's how I like it

Broken

If you want control
Without any pain
How long will you suffer
How long will you rain

You see the friend that I knew
Can not be found
Replaced by another
Wearing his crown

There's a place where I go
Without any sound
Only you can reach me
Only you're allowed
Then you're so far away
You're so far from here
Do you remember
A time without tears

When you're falling
I will catch you
You don't have to fall that far
You can make it
I will be there
You were broken from the start

And you were a child
You dream all day long
You dream of your future
Get lost in your songs
Now that time has gone
It's lost for you now
Words long forgotten
Forgotten somehow

When you're falling
I will catch you
You don't have to fall that far
You can make it
I will be there
You were broken from the start

The Child Inside

There is darkness and death in your eyes
What have you got buried inside
The shallow grave in your soul
The ghost that have taken control

You really should have dug a little deeper there
Bodyparts are starting to appear and scare
The child inside away

Each tear that flows down your face
Trickles then picks up the pace
And turns to a river inside
A river that will not subside

I can hear that dreadful overflowing sound
Watching from afar I see a child is drowned
The child inside your heart

I can see you drifting away
Heading for the light
I can see you drifting away
Every night

Why were you always inside
On days when the weather was fine
And while we were running around
You were nowhere to be found

You know you should have taken all your dolls to bed
But you were made to play games with your soul instead
The child inside you died

Soft Touch / Raw Nerve

Have I got soft touch
Have I got soft touch
Is my radar that off
Is my radar that off

I'm thinking
That you're sinking
When I'll drown
I've got a confession
That your depression
Will take me down

Am I on the right track
Am I on the right track
Have I picked a bad time
Have I picked a bad time

It's seeming
That you're dreaming
Through my eyes
Why protest
When your substance
Is my prize

Oh brother
Give me a helping hand
Oh brother
Tell me you understand

Have I hit a raw nerve
Have I hit a raw nerve
Have I got a soft touch
Have I got a soft touch

I'm thinking
That you're sinking
When I'll drown
I've got a suspicion
That your position
Is unsound

Oh brother!
Give me a helping hand
Oh brother!
Tell me you understand

Have I hit a raw nerve
Have I hit a raw nerve
Have I got a soft touch
Have I got a soft touch

Should Be Higher

I dream of a day
When I dare to believe
You're the answer

When the shame
And the guilt are removed
And the truth appears

Of the touch of your hand
I lose who I am
If I want to

I try to resist but
Succumb to the bliss
Of your kiss

You should be higher
I'll take you higher
Well don't be afraid
You'll just have to pray

Your lies are more attractive
Than the truth
Love is all I want
Your lies are written down there
In your book
Love is all I want

Your arms are infected
They're holding the truth
Oh stop all your crying
This one you'll lose

You should be higher
I'll take you higher
So don't be afraid
You'll just have to pray

Your lies are more attractive
Than the truth
Love is all I want
Your lies are written down there
In your book
Love is all I want

You should be higher
Love

Alone

I was there when you needed me most
I was there when you wanted me least
I was your father, your son, and your holy ghost and priest

Through your failures and success
Through your losses and gains
I didn't see much happiness or pain

I couldn't save your soul
I couldn't even take you home
I couldn't fill that hole
Alone

I saw you at your best
I knew you at your worst
I couldnt tell if you were blessed or cursed

There's a thin grey line
Between the black and white
It's evidently hard to find at night

I couldn't save your soul
I couldn't even take you home
I couldn't play that role
Alone

Now it's too, too late for words
That should have been said long ago

I was there when you needed me most
I was there when you wanted me least
I was your father, your son, and your holy ghost and priest

I couldn't save your soul
I couldn't even take you home
I couldn't fill that hole
Alone

Soothe My Soul

I'm coming for you
When the sun goes down
I'm coming for you
When there's no one around

I come to your house
Break down the door
Girl I'm shaking
I need more

There's only one way to soothe my soul
There's only one way to soothe my soul
Only one way
Only one way
Only one way
Only one way

I'm coming for you
I need to feel your skin
I'm coming for you
To stop this crawling

I'm taking my place
By your side
I'm not leaving
Until I'm satisfied

There's only one way to soothe my soul
There's only one way to soothe my soul
Only one way
Only one way
Only one way
Only one way

I'm coming for you
My body's hungry
I'm coming for you
Like a junkie

I can't stop
The desire in me
I'm not waiting
Patiently

There's only one way to soothe my soul
There's only one way to soothe my soul
There's only one way to soothe my soul
There's only one way to soothe my soul
Only one way
Only one way
Only one way
Only one way
There's only one way to soothe my soul

Goodbye

It was you that took my soul
And threw a hidden fire
And tamed it in the rapture
And filled me with desire

Now I'm pure, now I'm clean
I feel cured and surreal
In you

There is no denying
How I have been changed
You won't hear me crying
Now misery is strange

I can dream, I can fly
Now it seems I get by
With you

Good goodbye again
Good goodbye again

I was always looking, looking for someone
Someone to stick my hook in
And pull it out and run

Now I'm caught on your arm
All my thoughts are entwined
In you

Good goodbye again
Good goodbye again

If you see me walking
To the golden gates
The turn arounds stop talking
Stop and hesitate

I'll be waiting up there
Weave my fate in the air
For you

Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
Good goodbye
