Depeche Mode - Get The Balance Right!

Formed in Basildon in 1980, Depeche Mode were one of the bands that made 1980s music great. Personally, I find it impossible to pick an absolute favourite track, but this one has to qualify as a definite contender. Remember:

Be responsible, respectable,
Stable but gullible
Concerned and caring, help the helpless
But always remain ultimately selfish...

Brilliant song and so evocative of the 1980s. What do the lyrics "straight down the middle until next Thursday" mean? I've never been able to work it out!

"Don't turn this way,
Don't turn that way,
Straight down the middle until next Thursday,
Reverse to the left,
Then back to the right,
Twist and turn 'til you've got it right..."

UK Polling days are traditionally Thursdays.
