"Fly on the Windscreen-Final" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
Death is everywhere
There are flies on the windscreen
For a start
Reminding us
We could be torn apart
Tonight

Death is everywhere
There are lambs for the slaughter
Waiting to die
And I can sense
The hours slipping by
Tonight

Come here
Kiss me
Now
Come here
Kiss me
Now

Death is everywhere
The more I look
The more I see
The more I feel
A sense of urgency
Tonight

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

There are flies on the windscreen
There are lambs for the slaughter
There are flies on the windscreen

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

Come here (touch me)
Kiss me (touch me)
Now (touch me)
(touch me)

    General CommentHas history really become lost? Has anyone bothered to look at when the song was written and released? Ummm, let's see, what else was going on in the world at the time. Come here, Touch me, Kiss me, Touch Me, Now, Touch me. The song can be generalized to death in general, however, the song was specifically written about the long forgotten (in America) AIDS. Flies on the Windscreen was meant to describe the horrible things we witnessed people going through, Death in the gay community was living driving through the country and bugs splatting on the windshield. The chorus of Come Here, Touch me, Kiss me, Touch me, Now, Touch Me was used to describe the intent of lust over riding the death around us and men still practicing unsafe sex while watching death, and because of the lack of treatment and money being spent at the time were considered, 'lambs being slaughtered' as the meek, gay community were being slaughtered by the lack of awareness and treatment.

    QuestionDo any of you gorgeous Depeche Fans know what the spoken voice is at the very beginning before Dave even starts singing, he is saying something that sounds like "Over Sunwin Over Sunwin" but obviously not as that makes no sense, any ideas guys?

    My InterpretationI think it's just Martin's simple way of saying "We could be hit by a bus tomorrow!" So enjoy life..come here..kiss me now! Death is everywhere for sure...as he is a vegetarian (there are lambs for the slaughter) was in there too...I think he is the kind of forthright singersongwriter that if it was about the gay community he would have sung it..."master and Servant" "princess Di is wearing a new dress!" He doent hold back or have any hidden meanings in his songs I don't think.
