Since 1981 – Ghost In The Machine

Also placed in view August 13, 2008

Hey folks.  I knew since 1996 there would be a Police Reunion tour, even though Sting said he didn’t know where this idea came from.  I know that sounds bizarre, but it is true.  So why didn’t I go on tour with them?  
Because Nicole said she wanted me to? No, because they did not invite me.
Here are the Police’s Beads, from Ghost in The Machine.
Enjoy!
Our so-called leaders speak
With words they try to jail you
They subjugate the meek
But it’s the rhetoric of failure
Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It’s a big enough umbrella
But it’s always me that ends up getting wet
There has to be an invisible sun
It gives its heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
That gives us hope when the whole day’s done
It’s dark all day and it glows all night
Factory smoke and acetylene light
I face the day with my head caved in
Looking like something that the cat brought in
No matter what I do
I’m still hungry for you
No matter what I do
I’m still hungry for you
I’m a walking nightmare, an arsenal of doom
I kill conversation as I walk into the room
I’m a three line whip
I’m the sort of thing they ban
I’m a walking disaster
I’m a demolition man
You come to me like a moth to the flame
It’s love you need but I don’t play that game
‘Cos you could be my greatest fan
But I’m nobody’s friend
I’m a demolition man
Too much information running through my brain
Too much information driving me insane
Too much information running through my brain
Too much information driving me insane
A policeman put on his uniform
He’d like to have a gun just to keep him warm
Because violence here is a social norm
You’ve got to humanise yourself
Rehumanise yourself
Rehumanise yourself
Rehumanise yourself
Rehumanise yourself
I don’t want to bring a sour note
Remember this before you vote
We can all sink or we all float
‘Cos we’re all in the same big boat
One world is enough
For all of us
One world is enough
For all of us
The sky’s alive with turned on television sets
I walk the streets and seek another vision yet
The echo makes me turn to see that last frontier
The edge of time closes down as I disappear
I’m the Omegaman
I’m the Omegaman
I’m the Omegaman
I’m the Omegaman
 
Always talking to myself
Oh!
You will see light in the darkness
You will make some sense of this
You will see joy in this sadness
You will find this love you miss
 And when you’ve made your secret journey
You will be a holy man
I can dream up schemes when I’m sitting in my seat
I don’t see any flaws till I get to my feet
I wish I never woke up this morning
Life was easy when it was boring
I could make a mark if it weren’t so dark
I could be replaced by any bright spark
 
But darkness makes me fumble
For a key
To a door
That’s wide open
