Depeche Mode - Memento Mori Lyrics






My Cosmos Is Mine

Don't play with my world
Don't mess with my mind
Don't question my space-time
My cosmos is mine

Don't toy with my heart
Don't knock down my shrines
Don't alter my headlines
My cosmos is mine

No war, no war, no war
No more, no more, no more, no more
No fear, no fear, no fear, no fear
Not here, not here, not here, not here

No rain, no clouds
No pain, no shrouds
No final breaths
No senseless deaths

Don't stare at my soul
I swear it is fine (don't mess with my mind)
Its borders are outlined (don't question my space-time)
My cosmos is mine (my cosmos is mine)
My cosmos is mine

My cosmos is mine (don't play with my world)
My cosmos is mine (don't mess with my mind)
My cosmos is mine (don't question my space-time)
My cosmos is mine

(Don't play with my world)
(Don't mess with my mind)
(Don't mess with my mind)

Wagging Tongue

You won't do well to silence me
With your words or wagging tongue
With your long tall tales of sorrow
Your song yet to be sung

I won't be offended
If I'm left across the great divide
Believe me, they will follow
Just to watch another angel die
Watch another angel die

You won't do well to darken me
With your secrets and your lies
With your piercing code of silence
Relax, enjoy the ride

I'll meet you by the river
Or maybe on the other side
You find it hard to swallow
When you watch another angel die
Watch another angel die

Another sun is rising
Another day has come
You can find me, I'll be waiting
Until the day is done

I won't be persuaded
Kiss your doubts goodbye
Everything seems hollow
When you watch another angel die

Watch another angel die
Watch another angel die
Watch another angel die
Watch another angel die
Watch another angel die

Ghosts Again

Wasted feelings
Broken meanings
Time is fleeting
See what it brings

Hellos, goodbyes, a thousand midnights
Lost in sleepless lullabies

Heaven's dreaming
Thoughtless thoughts my friends
We know we'll be ghosts again

Sunday's shining
Silver linings
Weightless hours
All my flowers

A place to hide the tears that you cried
Everybody says goodbye

Faith is sleeping
Lovers in the end
Whisper we'll be ghosts again

Heaven's dreaming
Thoughtless thoughts my friends
We know we'll be ghosts again

Faith is sleeping
Lovers in the end
Whisper we'll be ghosts again

Dont Say You Love Me

You'll be the killer
I'll be the corpse
You'll be the thriller
And I'll be the drama, of course

If you play the sinner
I'll play the stain
If you play the winner
I'll be your permanent pain

I'll be the boredom
You, the desire
I'll be the catcalls
And you'll be the sound of the choir

You, anesthetic
I'll be the scream
You'll be the promise
And I'll be the end of your dreams

So don't say you love me
'Cause you'll never love me

You'll be the flowers
That some lover sent
I'll be the goodbye note
That is hiding in them

You are the singer
I am the song
The tune that will linger
The bitter taste left on your tongue

So don't say you love me
How could you love me?

Your flowers and your make-believe
The secrets and the notes you keep
The promises left on the sheets
You'll never love me

Fool your friends, believe your lies
Make amends and alibis
In the end you can't disguise
That you'll never love me

You'll be the killer
I'll be the corpse
You'll be the laughter
And I'll be the punchline, of course

My Favourite Stranger

Some perfect stranger
Sneaks on tiptoes
Steals my shadow
And goes where I go

My favorite stranger
Stands in my mirror
Puts words in my mouth
All broke and bitter

Some perfect stranger
My imitation
Drops my name in
My conversations

Some perfect stranger
Speaks when I speak
Walks in my footsteps
And talks in my sleep

My favorite stranger
Stands where I stand
Leaves crime in my wake
And blood on my hands
(And blood on my hands)

Soul With Me

I'm heading for the ever after
Leaving my problems and the world's disasters
I'm heading for the open sky

I see the beauty as the leaves start falling
Follow the light towards the voices calling
I'm going where the angels fly

And I'm taking my soul with me
And I'm taking my soul with me

I'm ready for the final pages
Kiss goodbye to all my earthly cages
I'm climbing up the golden stairs

Go sing it from the highest tower
From the morning till the midnight hour
I'm going where there are no cares

And I'm taking my soul with me
And I'm taking my soul with me
And I'm taking my soul with me
And I'm taking my soul with me

Carolines Monkey

Caroline knows how fragile we are
With hope as our faith, we look to the stars
Caroline's monkey is crying again
There's no satisfaction on Caroline's train

Caroline leaks through holes in her skin
Her promise of sweetness, forgiveness and everything
Caroline's monkey coos in her ear
Drives like a demon through Caroline's tears

Caroline feels the ice in her veins
The minutes and hours, the naming of days
Caroline said her dream never ends
For Caroline's monkey and Caroline's friends

Fading's better than failing
Falling's better than feeling
Folding's better than losing
Fixing's better than healing, sometimes

Caroline's monkey claws at her back
Colder than winter, darker than black
Caroline's monkey is hungry again
Running with scissors on needles and pins

Caroline's monkey lives where she lays
Sleeps like a thief and steals through the days
Caroline's monkey makes up all the fun
Leaves chaos and ruin on Caroline's tongue

Caroline knows how fragile we are
With hope as our faith, we look to the stars
Caroline's monkey is crying again
There's no satisfaction on Caroline's train

Fading's better than failing
Falling's better than feeling
Folding's better than losing
Fixing's better than healing, sometimes

Before We Drown

I've been thinking I could come back home
So how would that be, you and I alone?
All alone?

I have a feeling, you're not on my side
There's a distance between you and I
You and I

First we stand up, then we fall down
We have to move forward, before we drown, we drown

I feel so naked, standing on the shore, are you sure?
Nothing's out there, nothing else no more, no more

First we stand up, then we fall down
We have to move forward, before we drown

We drown
We drown
We drown
We drown

First we stand up, then we fall down
We have to move forward, before we drown

People Are Good

Keep telling myself
That people are good
Whisper it under my breath
So I don't forget
Keep fooling myself
That they do all they can
Sometimes they simply slip up
But it's not what they meant (but it's not what they meant)

Heaven help me (help me, help me), heaven help me (help me, help me)
Heaven help us (help us, help us), heaven help us (help us, help us)

Keep reminding myself
That people are good
And when they do bad things
They're just hurting inside
Keep fooling myself
That everyone cares
And they're all full of love
It's just their patience gets tried

Heaven help me (help me, help me), heaven help me (help me, help me)
Heaven help us (help us, help us), heaven help us (help us, help us)

Everything will be alright in time
It will be fine

'Cause people are good
Whisper it under your breath
People are good
Keep fooling yourself

People are good
Whisper it under your breath
People are good
Keep fooling yourself

Ah, people are good
Whisper it under your breath
People are good
Keep fooling yourself

People are good
Whisper it under your breath
People are good
Keep fooling yourself (fooling yourself, fooling yourself, fooling yourself)

(People are good, people are good)
(Whisper it under your breath)
(People are good)
(Keep fooling yourself)

Always You

My love, the world's upside down
My love, no solid ground
My love, there are no more facts
My love, reality's cracked

And then there's you, there's always you
You're all I need to keep believing
And then there's you, there's always you
The air that keeps my spirit breathing

And then there's you
There's always you, there's always you
There's always you, there's always you
There's always you

My love, there are no more words
My love, life's too absurd
My love, I could not explain
My love, why insanity reigns

And then there's you, there's always you
The light that leads me from the darkness
And then there's you, there's always you
Your grace and holiness are endless

And then there's you
There's always you, there's always you
There's always you, there's always you
There's always you

And then there's you
There's always you, there's always you
There's always you, there's always you
There's always you

Never Let Me Go

I'm waiting for your love
I know you'll want me
When your body's had enough
Your senses will see
There's only so much time
We have to play with
To waste it is a crime
We have so much to give

When uncertainty parts
You'll be ready to concede
It was plain from the start
You've been running from me
And I have been patient
I have been so calm
Bit my lips through the torment
Please fall into my arms

Never let me go
Never let me go

Watch our dreams unfold in color
Underneath love's moon, we'll wander

Never let me go
Never let me go

The angels will praise us
The world will seem right
We'll pull it out of the darkness
And into the light

We will be beacons
Shining so bright
Like stars in the darkness
For lovers at night

We will be beacons
Shining so bright
Like stars in the darkness
For lovers at night

Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go

Speak To Me

Speak to me, I will follow
I heard you call my name
Lying on the bathroom floor
No one here to blame
There's a message I know can be found
I'm listening, I hear you, your sound

Speak to me in a language
That I can understand
Tell me that you're listening
Give me some kind of plan
Give me something, you'd be my drug of choice
You lead me, I follow, your voice

I will disappoint you
I will let you down
I need to know you're here with me
Turn it all around
I'd be grateful, I'd follow you around
I'm listening, I'm here now, I'm found
