    It is no secret that Martin is a master of double-meaning lyrics and normally there are two-three different stories in one song could be traced.

    Depeche Mode, Fishers of men, Jesus firsts asked Peter the fisherman to follow Jesus and he would make Peter a fisher of men. Considering Peter started the church and lies in state/statute at the Vatican, St. Peters basilica. You must go to rub Peters toe in Rome. Your own personal Jesus is just that have your own personal Jesus someone to hold, someone to pray to. Like your own marriage it is as individual a relationship as the two in the marriage. I know this song was inspired by Presila Presly book about her marriage and life as Elvis Presly daughter. Most songs of Depeche Mode have a spiritual basis. As with most creative endeavors every character and every story is just a rewrite from the Bible. Northrop Frye found that about all human creations, writings, and books.
