"Halo" as written by and Martin Gore....
You wear guilt
Like shackles on your feet
Like a halo in reverse
I can feel
The discomfort in your seat
And in your head it's worse

There's a pain
A famine in your heart
An aching to be free

Can't you see
All love's luxuries
Are here for you and me

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

Bring your chains
Your lips of tragedy
And fall into my arms

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite DM song. My analysis is similar to rexbasior's, only the "guy" is not a creep. -Just a really horny one. Here goes!

    "You wear guilt
    Like shackles on your feet
    Like a halo in reverse"
    -is referring to how someone lets their guilt restrain them, and it stops them from doing what they want.

    "I can feel
    The discomfort in your seat
    And in your head it's worse"
    -could be referring to this persons physical/emotional discomfort caused by aphrodisia.

    "There's a pain
    A famine in your heart
    An aching to be free"
    -referring to this person's desire to have sex, and 'break free' from those 'shackles of guilt'.

    "Can't you see
    All love's luxuries
    Are here for you and me"
    -basically saying that sex, one of "love's luxuries," is available for them.

    "Bring your chains
    Your lips of tragedy
    And fall into my arms"
    -He's requesting her to forget about the guilt/consequences and engage.

    and lastly, the chorus
    "And when our worlds they fall apart
    When the walls come tumbling in
    Though we may deserve it
    It will be worth it."
    -Is saying that having sex will have drastic, life-altering, consequences that by engaging will be completely be their fault. -However, the intercourse will make it worth it.

    Wow... ¡Estoy en caliente ahora!
