Shame - Depeche Mode

Do you ever get that feeling
When the guilt begins to hurt?
Seeing all the children
Wallowing in dirt
Crying out with hunger
Crying out in pain
At least the dirt will wash off
When it starts to rain
Soap won't wash away your shame

Do you ever get the feeling
That something isn't right?
Seeing your brother's fist
Clenched ready for the fight
Soon the fighting turns to weapons
And the weapons turn to wounds
So the doctor's start to stitch and stitch and stitch
And stitch and stitch and stitch and stitch
Surgery won't improve your pain

It all seems so stupid
It makes me want to give up
But why should I give up
When it all seems so stupid?

Do you ever get the feeling
That something can't be done?
To eradicate these problems
That make the people want
Do you ever get that feeling
Something like an like an itch?
But oh, how the doctors stitch and stitch
And stitch and stitch and stitch and stitch
Hope alone won't remove the stains
Shame

It all seems so stupid
It makes me want to five up
But why should I give up
When it all seems so stupid?
