"Enjoy The Silence (Depeche Mode Cover)" as written by and Martin / Gore....
Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh, my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here
In my arms
Words are very
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

[Chorus: x3]

Enjoy the silence [Repeat: x4]

    General Commentwhilst this is a cover (and i love both versions), i also think this is the best lacuna coil song out there - kind of a bad move on their part.
    this is about a relationship being so deep and involved that words arent necessary - but that underneath, they both have secrets and confessions to be told, and that once this comes into light, their worlds will collapse

    General Commentwhile I prefer the original, I agree that female vocals bring something to it, a different perspective.

    General CommentGreat song! Cristina's vocals are right on. By far the best song on Karmacode, too bad it's a cover.

    General CommentActions speak louder than words... This song speaks loudly the truth amidst its dulcet tones.

    General CommentFirst time I heard this I got the image of a mother trying to protect her daughter from all the words of hate out in the world, and from, sadly, the truth that the world is a violent place. "enjoy the silence" seems like a plea to her daughter not to grow up and see what it's like out there.

    General CommentPersonally, I reckon that this version is waaaay better than the Depeche mode version. But that's just me...
