Depeche Mode – A Pain That I’m Used To

[Verse 1]
I’m not sure what I’m looking for anymore
I just know that I’m harder to console
I don’t see who I’m trying to be instead of me
But the key is a question of control

Can you say what you’re trying to play anyway
I just pay while you’re breaking all the rules
All the signs that I find have been underlined
Devils thrive on the drive that is fueled

[Chorus]
All this running around, well, it’s getting me down
Just give me a pain that I’m used to
I don’t need to believe all the dreams you conceive
You just need to achieve something that rings true

[Verse 2]
There’s a hole in your soul like an animal
With no conscience repentance unknown
Close your eyes, pay the price for your paradise
Devils feed on the seeds that are sown

Can’t conceal what I feel what I know is real
No mistaking the faking I care
With a prayer in the air I will leave it there
On a note full of hope not despair

[Chorus]
All this running around, well, it’s getting me down
Just give me a pain that I’m used to
I don’t need to believe all the dreams you conceive
You just need to achieve something that rings true
