Spirits in the Material World
by The Police

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

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.

Joey Stylzclash

No you don't. Your just a big fan, lol

mike rodrik

Copeland must be so happy because in Police live concerts he's the star.

Jamie Burris

YES. And Sting is damn good on the bass for being also the lead singer

​@legunncat When I saw them reunite in 2007 Stewart was playing a drum set he built in tribute to Rick Allen/The one-armed drummer of Def Leppard fame.

His tone and playing are a dead give away. I think the only player that is as recognizable would be Bonham. But that snare of Copeland's is unmistakable.
