Depeche Mode – Welcome To My World (2013)

Scroll down to content

Static… a power station whoomp… huge blasts… wait a minute, has someone put on a new album from the Raster-Noton label by mistake!? Depeche Mode’s 13th studio album sure starts with one hell of a noisy, avant-techno surprise. But then Dave Gahan’ quite delicate vocal comes in by way of a contrast “welcome to my world / leave your tranquilisers at home / you don’t need them any more”. Is this a State Of Depeche Mode? “All the drama queens are gone,” he sings, “the Devil got this made”. The track builds into a huge chorus refrain of “welcome to my world” as the noise keeps going, ripping and sounding very analogue with a pile of strings underneath. There’s a lot of bluster here, but it holds up well. The devil/soul/bleed/dreams/control familiar Gahan themes. [Source]

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
