Barrel Of A Gun. Depeche Mode. Produced by Tim Simenon. Barrel Of A Gun Lyrics. Do you mean this horny creep Set upon weary feet Who looks in need of sleep That doesn't come. This twisted, tortured mess This bed of sinfulness Who's longing for some rest And feeling numb. What do you expect of me What is it you want Whatever you've planned for me I'm not the one. A vicious appetite Visits me each night And won't be satisfied Won't be denied. An unbearable pain A beating in my brain That leaves the mark of Cain Right here inside

As it turned out, no worries - another massive, epochal slam in the vein of songs like "Never Let Me Down Again" and "I Feel You," "Barrel From a Gun" did the business. Tim Simenon's production was note-perfect, combining heavily processed funk guitar, big beats, scratches, and whatever else could be thought appropriate. Arranged behind Gahan's anguished, powerful vocal and some creepy, effective backing vocals, it's simply, perfectly grand. Three remixes of the track appear, two courtesy of English techno outfit Underworld.
