"Light" as written by and Martin Gore....
Take my hand and walk in the light
Understand there's a fire to ignite
You know we have a responsibility
It's true we've been chosen
And now we have the possibility
Of melting what's frozen

Walk with me with the rapture inside
Can't you see it's not our place to decide?
You know we have to make a case for love
It's more of a duty
It's clear we have a mission from above
A mission of beauty

You know I wouldn't lie to you
What would I achieve by that?
It's more than I would try to do
These are the facts

Take your place here with love in your heart
Just embrace what you've known from the start
We are fulfilling our only destiny
The angels have spoken
And all the God's in the universe agree
The spell can't be broken

    General CommentThis song reflects what I have always known about Depeche Mode--they are here on a "mission of beauty". "The angels have spoken." I don't know if Martin would be so self aggrandizing to write such words because he is modest person, but that is my interpretation. The world is a better place with music from Depeche Mode and Martin Gore in particular.
