Spirits in the Material World
The Police Lyrics


There is no political solution
To our troubled evolution
Have no faith in constitution
There is no bloody revolution

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

Our so-called leaders speak
With words they try to jail you
They subjugate the meek
But it's the rhetoric of failure

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

Where does the answer lie?
Living from day to day
If it's something we can't buy
There must be another way

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

@Michael Roecker I guess we are in it!

Michael Roecker

Me neither...wisdom, brilliance, the hook of this melody, mixed with the what?symphonic qualities of the track...I'm way out of my league now discussing this, but this music makes me reach ...it makes me want to be a better drummer, a better fan ,a better person ,a better human man!

Aimee Thompson

Right there with ya. Shivers abounding!

Stewart Copeland has the most recognizable drumming style of anyone in history. You IMMEDIATELY know it's him from the first bar...that's true greatness.
