New Dress, Same Old Song

So I'm listening to my neighbors' iTunes library over the building network and THIS song comes on. God, I love Depeche Mode and this song but it's been a while since I hear this one. Ah, what would the bands of the 80s think of today when they already had lyrics like this?

New Dress
by Martin Gore, Depeche Mode


Sex jibe husband murders wife
Bomb blast victim fights for life
Girl, thirteen, attacked with knife

Princess Di is wearing a new dress

Jet airliner shot from sky
Famine horror, millions die
Earthquake, terror figures rise

Princes Di is wearing a new dress

You can't change the world
But you can change the facts
And when you change the facts
You change points of view
If you change points of view
You may change a vote
And when you change a vote
You may change the world

In black townships fires blaze
Prospects better, premier says
Within sight are golden days

Princess Di is wearing a New Dress

You can't change the world
But you can change the facts
And when you change the facts
You change points of view
If you change points of view
You may change a vote
And when you change a vote
You may change the world
