"The Sweetest Condition" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
Taken in by the delicate noise
Knocked to the ground by the subtle thunder
Shackled and bound by the sound of your voice
Wandering around in silent wonder

What chance did I have
With the silver moon
Hanging in the sky
Opening old wounds?

Taking hold of the hem of your dress
Cleanliness only comes in small doses
Bodily whole, but my head's in a mess
Fueling obsession that borders psychosis

It's a sad disease
Creeping through my mind
Causing disabilities
Of the strangest kind

Getting lost in the folds of your skirt
There's a price that I pay for my mission
A body in heaven and a mind full of dirt
How I suffer the sweetest condition

Taken in by the delicate noise
Knocked to the ground by the subtle thunder
Shackled and bound by the sound of your voice
Wandering around in silent wonder

    General CommentPh my , why has noone commented on it?
    One of the most beautyful & haunting tunes by DM I have heard.
    What about the meaning?
    Being in love, obsessed, thrilled by a nother person?
    You could actually read quite a lot into the lyrics and take different angles. So it doesn't get boring... =)

    What chance did I have
    With the silver moon
    Hanging in the sky
    Opening old wounds...

    Ahhh..

    General CommentYou are so right, Jadore. I can't believe this song has no more comments.
    This is one of my favourite songs ever. I can listen to it many times and always find it fascinating.
    For me, this is about a guy who's being "eaten" by the love he feels for a girl who doesn't seem to know. He realizes his condition, but can't do anything to stop it and will eventually lose his mind and become badly obsessed, that's why I think the melody has this kind of dark tone...

    Song MeaningI've always felt that this song is about getting a lap dance at the strip club.
