"Where's the Revolution" as written by and Martin Gore....
You've been kept down
You've been pushed 'round
You've been lied to
You've been fed truths
Who's making your decisions?
You or your religion
Your government, your countries
You patriotic junkies

Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down
Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down

You've been pissed on
For too long
Your rights abused
Your views refused
They manipulate and threaten
With terror as a weapon
Scare you till you're stupefied
Wear you down until you're on their side

Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down
Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down

The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

The engine's humming
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board

The engine's humming
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board

Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down
Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down

Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down

    General Commenti think this song is effectively saying where is this far left revolution weve been hearing so much about and that everyone else has needed one for 20 years... but depeche mode did something like this in personal jesus, i could be completely wrong, as music is based on interpretation. i take from this song that both sides of this long running debate have their scruples. but in the end the far left will have to put down their flags, as the normal people, being lead by martin in the video (plus hes the writer) dont want a marxist utopian world, but in effect the song is saying everyone that isnt far left needs to revolt, get the far left out of the media and education (lied to, fed truth's blah blah), and the people need more government control as democracy seems to be failing us at the moment. as i say, this is my interpretation, dont take this as the actual meaning..... im probably wrong. THIS IS DEPECHE MODE.
    i am clearly a patriotic junkie :D as for religion.... and terror, the only people i see using terror is the far left (and islam is far left) so... yeah i could sit down with the song on loop and do a break down of the video but i have a life :) plus id probably be WRONG (tune)

    General CommentThe message of this song is sarcastic, you can figure it out by watching the video.
