'Welcome To My World' is a song from the 2013 album Delta Machine by Depeche Mode.

Notes

Martin Gore told 20 Minutes:

"It is true that [Depeche Mode] are more calm now than ever before. But this song is written from a much more personal point of view. I feel more at peace in my life and much better physically. Simply a happier person."

Martin said at the Q&A at Moogfest in 2019:

"'Welcome To My World' started out with just some kind of loop that I got going on a modular system, and that led up to kind of like the first chorus."

Lyrics


Welcome To My World

Welcome to my world

Step right through the door

Leave your tranquilisers at home

You don't need them anymore


All the drama queens have gone

And the devil got dismayed

He packed up and fled this town

His master plan delayed


And if you stay a while

I'll penetrate your soul

I'll bleed into your dreams

You'll want to lose control

I'll weep into your eyes

I'll make your visions sing

I'll open endless skies

And ride your broken wings

Welcome to my world

Welcome to my world

Welcome to my world


We'll watch the sunrise set

And the moon begin to blush

Our naked innocence

Translucently too much


And I'll hold you in my arms

And keep you by my side

And we'll sleep the devil's sleep

Just to keep him satisfied


And if you stay a while

I'll penetrate your soul

I'll bleed into your dreams

You'll want to lose control

I'll weep into your eyes

I'll make your visions sing

I'll open endless skies

And ride your broken wings

Welcome to my world

Welcome to my world

Welcome to my world
