  1. Dream On 4.19
  2. As you're bony fingers close around me
    Long and spindly
    Death becomes me
    Heaven can you see what I see

    Hey you pale and sickly child
    You're death and living reconciled
    Been walking home a crooked mile

    Paying debt to karma
    You party for a living
    What you take won't kill you
    But careful what you're giving

    Can you feel a little love
    Can you feel a little love

    Dream on dream on

    There's no time for hesitating
    Pain is ready, pain is waiting
    Primed to do it's educating

    Unwanted, uninvited kin
    It creeps beneath your crawling skin
    It lives without it lives within you

    Feel the fever coming
    You're shaking and twitching
    You can scratch all over
    But that won't stop you itching

    Can you feel a little love
    Can you feel a little love

    Dream on dream on

    Blame it on your karmic curse
    Oh shame upon the universe
    It knows its lines
    It's well rehearsed

    It sucked you in, it dragged you down
    To where there is no hallowed ground
    Where holiness is never found

    Paying debt to karma
    You party for a living
    What you take won't kill you
    But careful what you're giving

    Can you feel a little love
    Can you feel a little love

    Dream on dream on

  3. Shine 5.32
  4. Put on your blindfold
    And a dress that's tight
    And come with me
    On a mystery night
    Open your eyes

    Follow our stars under a painted sky
    We'll leave the world behind
    We're learning to fly
    We used to get by

    Forget the pictures on your TV screen
    We'll steal the visions
    That you keep for your dreams
    You can turn me on

    I was blind and I saw the light
    My angel coming
    In a brilliant white
    Shine for me

    You've been hanging from a rope of mediocrity
    Strung up by your insecurities
    You can shine for me
    Somebody has to
    Shine for me
    It's difficult not to
    Shine for me

    Follow our stars under a painted sky
    We'll leave the world behind
    We're learning to fly
    We used to get by

    Forget the pictures on your TV screen
    We'll steal the visions
    That you keep for your dreams
    You can turn me on

    You've been hanging from a rope of mediocrity
    Strung up by your insecurities
    You can shine for me
    Somebody has to
    Shine for me
    It's difficult not to
    Shine for me
    Somebody has to
    Shine for me
    It's difficult not to
    Shine for me
  5. The Sweetest Condition 3.42
  6. Taken in by the delicate noise
    Knocked to the ground by the subtle thunder
    Shackled and bound by the sound of your voice
    Wandering around in silent wonder

    What chance did I have
    With the silver moon
    Hanging in the sky
    Opening old wounds

    Taking hold of the hem of your dress
    Cleanliness only comes in small doses
    Bodily whole but my head's in a mess
    Fuelling obsession that borders psychosis

    It's a sad disease
    Creeping through my mind
    Causing disabilities
    Of the strangest kind

    Getting lost in the folds of your skirt
    There's a price that I pay for my mission
    A body in heaven and a mind full of dirt
    How I suffer the sweetest condition

    Taken in by the delicate noise
    Knocked to the ground by the subtle thunder
    Shackled and bound by the sound of your voice
    Wandering around in silent wonder

  7. When The Body Speaks 6.01
  8. To the soul's desires
    The body listens
    What the flesh requires
    Keeps the heart imprisoned

    What the spirit seeks
    The mind will follow
    When the body speaks
    All else is hollow

    I'm just an angel
    Driving blindly
    Through this world

    I'm just a slave here
    At the mercy
    Of a girl

    Oh I need your tenderness
    Oh I need your touch
    Oh I dream of one caress
    Oh I pray too much

    To the soul's desires
    The body listens
    What the flesh requires
    Keeps the heart imprisoned

    What the spirit seeks
    The mind will follow
    When the body speaks
    All else is hollow

    You keep me waiting
    For the promise
    That is mine

    Please stop debating
    Please stop wasting
    Your time

    Oh I need your tenderness
    Oh I need your touch
    Oh I dream of one caress
    Oh I pray too much

  9. The Dead Of Night 4.50
  10. We're the horniest boys
    With the corniest ploys
    Who take the easiest girls
    To our sleaziest worlds

    With our lecherous plans
    In our treacherous hands
    You'd be wasting your time
    Saying no, it's a crime

    All that we live for you'll regret
    All you remember we'll forget

    We are the dead of night
    We're in the zombie room
    We're twilight's parasites
    With self-inflicted wounds

    We are the dead of night
    We're in the zombie room
    Heavenly oversights
    Eating from silver spoons

    With our decadent minds
    And our innocent lines
    You'll be playing our games
    With your bodies in flames

    When delirious fun
    Has seriously begun
    You'll be down on your knees
    You'll be begging us please

    All we're demanding you'll supply
    All we're accused of we'll deny

    We are the dead of night
    We're in the zombie room
    We're twilight's parasites
    With self-inflicted wounds

    We are the dead of night
    We're in the zombie room
    Heavenly oversights
    Eating from silver spoons

  13. Freelove 6.10
  14. If you've been hiding from love
    If you've been hiding from love
    I can understand where you're coming from
    I can understand where you're coming from

    If you've suffered enough
    If you've suffered enough
    I can understand what you're thinking of
    I can see the pain that you're frightened of

    And I'm only here
    To bring you free love
    Let's make it clear
    That this is free love
    No hidden catch
    No strings attached
    Just free love
    No hidden catch
    No strings attached
    Just free love

    I've been running like you
    I've been running like you
    Now you understand why I'm running scared
    Now you understand why I'm running scared

    I've been searching for truth
    I've been searching for truth
    And I haven't been getting anywhere
    No I haven't been getting anywhere

    And I'm only here
    To bring you free love
    Let's make it clear
    That this is free love
    No hidden catch
    No strings attached
    Just free love
    No hidden catch
    No strings attached
    Just free love

    Hey girl
    You've got to take this moment
    Then let it slip away
    Let go of complicated feelings
    Then there's no price to pay

    We've been running from love
    We've been running from love
    And we don't know what we're doing here
    No we don't know what we're doing here

    We're only here
    Sharing our free love
    Let's make it clear
    That this is free love
    No hidden catch
    No strings attached
    Just free love
    No hidden catch
    No strings attached
    Just free love

  15. Comatose 3.24
  16. Comatose, almost
    You've got me dreaming
    Slipping in
    And Sliding out
    Of conscious feeling

    Take a light
    Start the flame
    Play the game
    I am lost
    In your eyes
    Hypnotised
    Here I believe
    Dreams never deceive

    Comatose, almost
    You've got me dreaming
    Slipping in
    And sliding out
    Life has no meaning

    Bodies move
    Colours change
    Girl you're strange
    Here inside
    I'm at home
    I'm alive

    Don't be afraid
    I'm floating away

    Comatose, almost
    You've got me dreaming
    Slipping in
    And sliding out
    Of conscious feeling

    Comatose, almost

    Comatose, almost

    Comatose.
  17. I Feel Loved 4.20
  18. It's the dark night of my soul
    And temptation's taking hold
    But through the pain and the suffering
    Through the heartache and trembling

    I feel loved
    I feel loved

    As the darkness closes in
    In my head I hear whispering
    Questioning and beckoning
    But I'm not taken in

    I feel loved
    I feel loved

    From the depths of my emptiness
    Comes a feeling of inner bliss
    I feel wanted, I feel desired
    I can feel my soul on fire

    I feel loved
    I feel loved

  19. Breathe 5.17
  20. I heard a rumour
    They travel far
    You know what it's like
    The way people are
    They talk and they talk
    Though they don't understand
    They'll whisper and whisper
    And lie on demand
    Please tell me now
    I want to know
    I have to hear it from your lips
    Say it's not so

    I heard it on Monday
    And I laughed a while
    I heard it on Tuesday
    I managed to smile
    I heard it on Wednesday
    My patience was tried
    I heard it on Thursday
    And I hurt inside
    I want to know
    The depths of your mind
    Tell me this whole thing is madness
    And we're doing fine
    Put your little hand in mine
    And believe in love
    Put your head on my chest
    And breathe love
    Breathe love
    Breathe love
    Breathe love

    I heard it from Peter
    Who heard it from Paul
    Who heard it from someone
    I don't know at all
    I heard it from Mary
    Who heard it from Ruth
    Who swore on the bible
    She's telling the truth
    I heard it from Simon
    Who heard it from James
    Confirming with Sarah
    That I was to blame
    I heard it from Joseph
    Who heard it from John
    Who said with conviction
    That all hope was gone
    So I need to know
    Your alibis
    I need to hear that you love me
    Before you say goodbye
    Before you say goodbye
    Before you say goodbye
    Before you say goodbye

  21. Easy Tiger 2.05
  22. Instrumental - no lyrics
  23. I Am You 5.10
  24. You have bound my heart with subtle chains
    So much pleasure that it feels like pain
    So entwined now that we can't shake free
    I am you and you are me

    No escaping from the mess we're in
    So much pleasure that it must be sin
    I must live with this reality
    I am yours eternally

    There's no turning back
    We're in this trap
    No denying the facts
    No, no, no
    No excuses to give
    I'm the one you're with
    We've no alternative
    No, no, no

    Dark obsession in the name of love
    This addiction that we're both part of
    Leads us deeper into mystery
    Keeps us craving endlessly

    Strange compulsions that I can't control
    Pure possession of my heart and soul
    I must live with this reality

    I am you and you are me
    I am you and you are me
    I am you and you are me
    I am you and you are me

    There's no turning back
    We're in this trap
    No denying the facts
    No, no, no
    No excuses to give
    I'm the one you're with
    We've no alternative
    No, no, no
  25. Good Night Lovers 3.48
  26. Here, somewhere in the heart of me
    There is still a part of me
    That cares

    And I'll, I'll still take the best you've got
    Even though I'm sure it's not
    The best for me

    When you're born a lover
    You're born to suffer
    Like all soul sisters
    And soul brothers

    I, I can see the danger signs
    They only help to underline
    Your beauty

    I'm not looking for an easy ride
    True happiness cannot be tried
    So easily

    When you're born a lover
    You're born to suffer
    Like all soul sisters
    And soul brothers

    Like all soul sisters
    And soul brothers

    You can take your time
    I'll be waiting in line
    You don't even have to give me
    The time of day

    When you're born a lover
    You're born to suffer
    Like all soul sisters
    And soul brothers

    Like all soul sisters
    And soul brothers

過小評価されている気が

素晴らしいアルバムだ。
完成度、曲単位の出来、全てに文句がない。
こんなことを書くと、馬鹿にされそうだ。こんなものの、どこがいいのか、なんてことを・・・だが胸を張っていえる。「本作は過小評価されている」と。
あなたは「ドリーム・オン」「アイ・アム・ユー」「コマトース」「フリーラヴ」「アイ・フィール・ラヴド」を聴いたか?評判がよくないだけで、聴いていないのでは?
聴けばびっくりするだろう。「こんなに素晴らしいアルバムがあったのか!」と。
「ドリーム・オン」のアルバム版はかっこいい。シングルヴァージョンよりも素敵なのではないだろうか。
「アイ・フィール・ラヴド」の躍動感をあなたは感じたか。「グッドナイト・ラヴァーズ」の切なさ、やさしさを感じたか。この値段だ。買って聴いてみて、その素晴らしさを実感して欲しい。ちなみに、映像作品「ツアーリング・ジ・エンジェル」では、ラストのアンコールで「グッドナイト・ラヴァーズ」が演奏されている。メンバー自身も本作に自信を持っているのだろう。
聴かずに文句を垂れるな。私は大声でそう言いたい。

日本語字幕

US盤は日本語字幕が全てのシリーズに付いてます。但し、リージョンフリーのDVDプレイヤーでないと再生できません。このシリーズを、どーーしても日本語字幕で観たくて購入しましたが意外と安かったです。ショートフィルムの内容はファンにとっては、どれも涙物です!

暗くはあるが、それが良さとなる


暗い、重い。

ヤクを止めてからちょっと回復してきたようだが。

益々静かになっているような気がする。

しかし、好きだ。

デペッシュの独特の雰囲気がもろに表れているのではないだろうか。

シンセの使い方が相変わらず上手い。

私個人としては、 「Violator」と匹敵するくらい、傑作だと思う。
