Notes

Martin Gore said in the 1986-02-22 issue of No.1 magazine:

"'It Doesn't Matter Two' is very desperate. Very very morbid."

Excerpt from Electronics and Music Magazine, 1986:

And then, of course, there are the industrial sounds and treated vocals of 'It Doesn't Matter Two', where a sequenced vocal pattern gives the song a distinct systems music character. Ingenious use of a Friend Chip SMPTE controller enabled the band to slow the song right down at its end without encountering any pitch problems, but musically, the piece is painfully reminiscent of Philip Glass, almost to the point of plagiarism. "Probably we were remotely inspired by Glass", concedes Gore, "though I hardly ever listen to that kind of music. But it wasn’t a piss-take or something. It was serious."

Lyrics


It Doesn't Matter Two

As I lay here with you

The shame lies with us

We talk of love and trust

That doesn't matter


Though we may be the last in the world

We feel like pioneers

Telling hopes and fears

To one another


And oh what a feeling

Inside of me

It might last for an hour

Wounds aren't healing

Inside of me

Though it feels good now

I know it's only for now


The feeling is intense

You grip me with your eyes

And then I realise

It doesn't matter
