'Macro' is a song from the 2005 album Playing The Angel by Depeche Mode.

Notes

In 2016, Depeche Mode's discography was found to have the most sophisticated lyrics per song of all best-selling music acts of the UK on average in a study by The Mirror. The determination was made by analysing the lyrics of more than 6,000 UK musical groups using the Coleman Liau and SMOG indexes, which are used to determine the difficulty of school text books. An average was taken of each song’s score in both of these tests, with the artist's final score determined by calculating the average score of each artist's full discography. Depeche Mode's catalogue was found to be the most lyrically-sophisticated, requiring 10.3 years of education to understand. Macro's lyrics were found to be the group's most challenging.[1]

Lyrics


Macro

Overflowing senses

Heightened awareness

I hear my blood flow

I feel its caress


Whispering cosmos

Talking right to me

Unlimited endless

God breathing through me


See the microcosm

In macro vision

Our bodies moving

With pure precision

One universal celebration

One evolution

One creation


Thundering rhythm

Pounding within me

Driving me onwards

Forcing me to see


Clear and enlightening

Right there before me

Brilliantly shining

Intricate beauty


See the microcosm

In macro vision

Our bodies moving

With pure precision

One universal celebration

One evolution

One creation


See the microcosm

In macro vision

Our bodies moving

With pure precision

One universal celebration

One evolution

One creation
