No lyrics? For one of the Cops' far and away best songs?

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 frustration
But we know all the 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 Loch

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 his headlight
The pain upstairs that makes his eyeballs ache
Many miles away there's a shadow on a door
Of a cottage by the shore
Of a dark Scottish lake

The song is called "Synchronicity II".

Indeed. I miss The Police. When this album came out, it was overplayed so much, I began to hate it. Later, I added it to my collection. Ah, the 80's...so much good stuff back then.

How could THIS song be a 5!!!!  I seriously do not get it.

Seriously, I feel like my "8" was being stingy. (Looks like the average is up to 7 now though.)

God, Sting used to be such a badass!
Nobody does it like the Po Po
Man, I miss this band
Aaah yes - takes me back! There was a time when this album was on loop.
Always liked this tune even though Feyd Rautha, I mean Sting, kinda bothers me.

How could THIS song be a 5!!!!  I seriously do not get it.

How can this be the first play for this song? Well, better late than never.
