Depeche Mode Predicted 9/11 In 1990


Enjoy The Silence
by
Depeche Mode

Words like violence break the silence
Come crashing in into my little world
Painful to me, pierce right through me
Can't you understand, oh my little girl?

All I ever wanted, all I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Words are spoken to be broken
Feelings are intense, words are trivial
Pleasures remain, so does their pain
Words are meaningless and forgettable

All I ever wanted, all I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

All I ever wanted, all I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

All I ever wanted, all I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence, enjoy the silence
Enjoy the silence

Didn't they have a different video for this song at one point? I seem to recall one that had some barbarian/tolkein-esque people walking over a mountain.

I never saw this video. Interesting.

That tune never ages. If it were released today, it would sound contemporary.

One of my all time favorite bands. Their first album was a masterpiece. But, I do not see where those lyrics have anything to do with 9-11

Violator is a "rehab" album. To me, this song captures what is felt when too much is said out of fear and frustration. No coincidence that such a powerful song was played atop the symbolic representation of excess; which is no longer. There are no coincidences.

I used to love them. Their import remixes were amazing. Reminds me of driving through the Rockies and camping and hiking. They're too dark for me now. Dark music for dark times I suppose.

I didn't see too much symbolism OP. Check out this video: the clouds; the flames; the smoking toaster; plane silhouettes.

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.

How's this for weird, as I was reading the OP, unknowing of anything regarding the background information, a large airliner flies directly overhead (at night).
