"Stripped" as written by and Martin Lee / Gore....
Come with me
Into the trees
We'll lay on the grass
And let the hours pass

Take my hand
Come back to the land
Lets get away
Just for one day

Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me hear you speaking just for me
Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me hear you crying just for me
Let me hear you make decisions
Without your television
Let me hear you speaking just for me

Oh oh oh
Metropolis has nothing on this
You're breathing in fumes
I taste when we kiss

Take my hand
Come back to the land
Where everything's ours
For a few hours

Oh oh oh
Oh let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me hear you speaking just for me
Let me see you stripped down to the bone
Let me hear you crying just for me
Let me hear you make decisions
Without your television

Let me hear you speaking just for me
Let me hear you crying just for me
Let me hear you speaking just for me
Let me hear you crying just for me
Let me hear you speaking just for me
Let me hear you crying just for me

    Song MeaningThe song is I can say pretty amazing. This is the type of song that you can listen to when you're having a bad day. I have looked at the lyrics and tried to norrow down what the meaning can be.
    "Come with me
    Into the trees
    Well lay on the grass
    And let the hours pass
    Take my hand
    Come back to the land
    Lets get away
    Just for one day.."

    Is saying that he just wanst to get away with his lover. He just wants to spend this time with her that maybe they haven't had in a long time.

    "Let Me See You
    Stripped Down to the bone
    Let me Hear you
    Speaking Just For Me
    Let me see you
    Stripped Down to the bone
    Let Me Hear you
    Crying just for me

    Let Me Hear you
    Make decisions
    Without Your Television
    Let Me hear you speaking
    just for me."

    This chorus I think is trying to say that he does not want all the stuff that the media and the world is feeding people. He wants his loving person back. He's telling her that he wants to see "her" again and what she used to be without all of this. He's sort of crying out is what he's doing, saying will you do this for me.

    "Metropolis
    Has Nothing on This
    You're Breathing in fumes
    I taste when we kiss
    Take My Hand
    Come Back To The Land
    Where Everything's Ours
    For a Few Hours.."

    This now is something to thnik about. There are things Metropolis can mean. Like for one, Metropolis is a made up city in the DC comic books and the home of Supperman. If it were to mean that, maybe he's saying that the time they had together when trying to rid her of all the damages that have been done to her was something magical. Or if it was about a magazine called Metropolis them maybe he's saying that the magizine, full of gossip and new ways to lose weight, has nothing on this girl of his. Also when he's saying "you're breathing in fumes I taste when we kiss." Maybe she's not really getting rid of this monster that he doesn't like. Maybe she is just doing this for him and saying all these things are gone.
