Das Lied Vom Einsamen Mädchen
Martin Gore explained in the April 2003 issue of Rolling Stone France (translated from French):
"I was very impressed with Nico, and I was always fascinated by her absence from life and the world, and I was struck by the recording of one of her last concerts in England: she seemed perfectly absent, neither the band nor the audience existed for her. It was probably drugs. I have always wondered how someone so extremely beautiful could have sunk so deeply? The decrepitude? I wonder if I'm obsessed with decay?"
Gore elaborated in the April 2003 issue of Jalouse magazine (translated from French):
"Except for the Germans, no one will understand the lyrics of this song, the sense of isolation, the lucidity that can be felt with it. Something that you feel when you become famous and that I experienced with Depeche Mode, although not as extreme as Dave [Gahan] has. We are in a unpredictable mental space, everyone loves you, pretends to know you, obviously. "
