Synchronicity I
With one breath, with one flow
You will know
Synchronicity

A sleep trance, a dream dance
A shaped romance
Synchronicity

A connecting principle
Linked to the invisible
Almost imperceptible
Something inexpressible
Science insusceptible
Logic so inflexible
Causally connectable
Yet nothing is invincible

If we share this nightmare
Then we can dream
Spiritus mundi

If you act as you think
The missing link
Synchronicity

We know you, they know me
Extrasensory
Synchronicity

A star fall, a phone call
It joins all
Synchronicity

It's so deep, it's so wide
You're inside
Synchronicity

Effect without cause
Sub-atomic laws, scientific pause

Walking In Your Footsteps
Fifty million years ago
You walked upon the planet so
Lord of all that you could see
Just a little bit like me

Walking in your footsteps

Hey, Mr. Dinosaur, you really couldn't ask for more
You were God's favorite creature, but you didn't have a future

Walking in your footsteps

Hey mighty brontosaurus, don't you have a lesson for us
You thought your rule would always last
There were no lessons in your past
You were built three stories high
They say you would not hurt a fly
If we explode the atom bomb they would say that we were dumb

Walking in your footsteps

Fifty million years ago
They walked upon the planet so
They live in a museum
It's the only place you'll see 'em

Walking in your footsteps

They say the meek shall inherit the earth

Walking in your footstepsback to top
O My God
Everyone I know is lonely and God's so far away
And my heart belongs to no one
So now sometimes I pray
Please take the space between us
And fill it up some way
Take the space between us and fill it up some way

O my God, you take the biscuit
Treating me this way
Expecting me to treat you well
No matter what you say
How can I turn the other cheek
It's black and bruised and torn
I've been waiting since the day that I was born

Take the space between us and fill it up some way
Take the space between us and fill it up some way

The fat man in his garden
The thin man at his gate
My God, you must be sleeping
Wake up, it's much too late

Take the space between us and fill it up some way
Take the space between us and fill it up some way

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 wetback to top
Mother
(Andy Summers)

Well, the telephone is ringing
Is that my mother on the phone?
Telephone is ringing
Is that my mother on the phone?
The telephone is screaming
Won't she leave me alone
The telephone is ringing
Is that my mother on the phone?

Well, every girl that I go out with
Becomes my mother in the end
Every girl I go out with
Becomes my mother in the end
Well, I hear Mother calling
But I don't need her as a friend

Oh, oh, Mother
Oh, Mother, dear, please listen
And don't devour me
Oh, Mother, dear, please listen
And don't devour me
Oh, women, please have mercy
Let this poor boy be
Oh, Mother, dear, please listen
And don't devour meback to top
Miss Gradenko
(Stewart Copeland)

Don't tell the director I said so
But are you safe, Miss Gradenko?
We were at a policy meeting
They were planning new ways of cheating
I didn't want to rock your heart
But you sent this dangerous note
You've been letting your feelings show

Are you safe, Miss Gradenko?
Miss Gradenko, are you safe?
Are you safe, Miss Gradenko?
Miss Gradenko, are you safe?

Is anybody alive in here?
Is anybody alive in here?
Is anybody at all in here?
Nobody but us
Nobody but us
Is anybody alive in here?
Nobody but us

Your uniform don't seem to fit
You're much too alive in it
You've been letting your feelings show

Are you safe, Miss Gradenko?
Miss Gradenko, are you safe?

Is anybody alive in here?
Is anybody alive in here?
Is anybody at all in here?
Nobody but us in here
Nobody but us

Nobody but us in here
Nobody but usback to top
Synchronicity Ii
Another suburban morning
Grandmother screaming at the wall

We have to shout above the din of our Rice Crispies
We can't hear anything at all
Mother chants her litany of boredom and frustrations
But we know all her suicides are fake

Daddy only stares into the distance
There's only so much more that he can take
Many miles away something crawls from the slime at the
Bottom of a dark Scottish lake

Another industrial ugly morning
The factory belches filth into the sky
He walks unhindered through the picket lines today
He doesn't think to wonder why
The secretaries pout and preen like cheap tarts on a red light street
But all he ever thinks to do is watch
And every single meeting with his so-called superior
Is a humiliating kick in the crotch
Many miles away something crawls to the surface of a dark Scottish lake

Another working day has ended
Only the rush hour hell to face
Packed like lemmings into shiny metal boxes
Contestants in a suicidal race
Daddy grips the wheel and stares alone into the distance
He knows that something somewhere has to break
He sees the family home now looming in the headlights
The pain upstairs that makes his eyeballs ache
Many miles away there's a shadow on the door of a cottage on the
Shore of a dark Scottish lakeback to top
Every Breath You Take
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every band you break
Every step you take

I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay

I'll be watching you

Oh, can't you see
You belong to me
How my heart aches with every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every smile you fake

I'll be watching you

Since you've gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night, I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I keep crying, baby, please

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake

I'll be watching youback to top
King Of Pain
There's a little black spot on the sun today
That's my soul up there
It's the same old thing as yesterday
That's my soul up there
There's a black hat caught on a high tree top
That's my soul up there
There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop
That's my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles, running 'round my brain
I guess I always thought that you could end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall
There's a dead salmon frozen on a waterfall
There's a blue whale beached by a springtide's ebb
There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web

There's a king on a throne wit his eyes torn out
There's a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
There's a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
There's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

There's a red fox torn by a huntsman's pack
There's a black-winged gull wit ha broken back
There's a little black spot on the sun today
It's the same old thing as yesterday
That's my soul up there

I have stood here before in the pouring rain
With the world turning circles, running 'round my brain
I guess I always thought that you could end this reign
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

I'll always be the king of painback to top
Wrapped Around Your Finger
You consider me the young apprentice
Caught between the Scylla and Charibdes
Hypnotized by you if I should linger
Staring at the ring around your finger
I have only come here seeking knowledge
Things they wouldn't teach me of in college
I can see the destiny you sold
Turned into a shining band of gold

I'll be wrapped around your finger

Mephistopheles is not your name
But I know what you're up to just the same
I will listen hard to your tuition
And you will see it come to its fruition

I'll be wrapped around your finger

Devil and the deep blue see behind me
Vanish in the air, you'll never find me
I will turn your face to alabaster
Then you will find your servant is your master

And you'll be wrapped around my fingerback to top
Tea In The Sahara
My sisters and I
Have this wish before we die
And it may sound strange
As if our minds are deranged
Please don't ask us why
Beneath the sheltering sky
We have this strange obsession
You have the means in your possession

We want our tea in the Sahara with you
We want our tea in the Sahara with you

The young man agreed
He would satisfy their need
So they danced for his pleasure
With a joy you could not measure
They would wait for him here
The same place every year
Beneath the sheltering sky
Across the desert he would fly

Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you

The sky turned to black
Would he ever come back
They would climb a high dune
They would pray to the moon
But he'd never return
So the sisters would burn
As their eyes searched the land
With their cups still full of sand

Tea in the Sahara with youback to top
