"Suffer Well" as written by David Gahan, Christian Eigner and Andrew Charles Phillpott....
Where were you when I fell from grace
Frozen heart, an empty space
Something's changing, it's in your eyes
Please don't speak, you'll only lie
I found treasure not where I thought
Peace of mind can't be bought
Still I believe

[Chorus]
I just hang on
Suffer well
Sometimes it's hard
It's hard to tell

An angel led me when I was blind
I said take me back, I've changed my mind
Now I believe
From the blackest room, I was torn
He called my name, a love was born
So I believe

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentYeah this song definitely seems like he is talking about death or suicide. To me it's like he can't take life anymore, he can't find peace of mind but he still believe in it, he can't die so just hang on and suffer well. "The angel led me when i was blind" to me is like when you don't know the truth about things like your sins then you learn, you have more fun when you are blind/ignorant because its so much harder to live the right way. That's just my take on it. Haunting song.

    General CommentHaving a bad time in your life and someone you love is not stand by you. You overcome of your bad time by suffering well for him or her.I think it's a gained experience which Dave had while drug problems.Maybe he really talked to an angel who knows:)

    General CommentIt is about Dave's near-death experience. And some say that Dave was speaking to Martin. Oh well...

    General Commenti also think it's about a death experience he had. either the one in 1995 when he cut his wrists or the one in 1996 when he was dead for 2 minutes.

    "An angel led me when I was blind
    I said take me back, I've changed my mind"

    i think it's about the 2 minutes death situation.

    Maybe someone close wasnt there when Dave was experiencing his near death experience... his frozen heart... an empty space.
