"Heaven" as written by and Martin Gore....
Sometimes I slide away
Silently
I slowly lose myself
Over and over

Take comfort in my skin
Endlessly
Surrender to my will
Forever and ever

I dissolve in trust
I will sing with joy
I will end up dust
I'm in heaven

I stand in golden rays
Radiantly
I burn a fire of love
Over and over

Reflecting endless light
Relentlessly
I have embraced the flame
Forever and ever

I will scream The Word
Jump into the void
I will guide the world
Up to heaven

    General CommentI think the longer you live, the more you realize that life has a rhythm and that you must take the bad with the good for anything to get easier. When you are young you may decide to go around problems, but age teaches you that it’s best to go through them.


    To me this song is about accepting the pitfalls (the Void) of life, because at the other end of them is peace (Heaven). I think the person behind the song has lived long enough and learned enough to know this and is bracing for impact, so to speak.


    It also seems there is a bit of a weary and sarcastic tone to the lyric “I’m in heaven”. Like it’s a way of saying, “Don't worry, I've been here before. I'll be alright.”


    So yes, I see the song as being about the cyclic nature of life; losing and finding yourself time and again and finally realizing you are never really in control. That the only thing you truly have control over, is how you face what life throws at you.


    On a separate note, I must say I am so happy that Depeche Mode continues to impress me and make me think after so many albums. It's really incredible.
