"Fall Out" as written by and Stewart Armstrong Copeland....
I never thought of leading
I've got my own machine
And I've paid my dues all along
All set for breaking
When I missed those other people
Cause I knew that I was really alone

Fall out
Fall out with all the leaders and gangs
Fall out
Fall out with all the leaders and gangs

I saw my education
It was my indoctrination
Just to be another parking machine
All my sense was breaking
When I missed those other people
Cause I knew that I was not very clean

Fall out
Fall out with all the leaders and gangs
Fall out
Fall out with all the leaders and gangs

Fall out
Fall out with all the leaders and gangs
Fall out
Fall out with all the leaders and gangs

Fall out!

    General CommentThe above are the most commonly reported lyrics, but IMHO they don't make much sense here and there.
    Here is another version which I've read somewhere and convinces me a lot more.
    It also may be possible that the early Police, in the spirit of punk, changed the words slightly from gig to gig.
    It's a song about non-belonging and feeling a dropout.

    I never followed leaders
    I've got no machine
    And I've paid my dues all along
    Always had to fake it
    When I mixed with other people
    'Cause I knew that I was really alone

    Fall out
    Fall out with all the leaders and gangs
    Fall out
    Fall out with all the leaders and gangs

    I sold my education
    It was my indoctrination
    Just to be another cog in the machine
    Always had to fake it
    When I mixed with other people
    'Cause I knew that I was not very clean

    Fall out
    Fall out with all the leaders and gangs
    Fall out
    Fall out with all the leaders and gangs

    Fall out
    Fall out with all the leaders and gangs
    Fall out
    Fall out with all the leaders and gangs

    Fall out!

    General CommentI think it's about being 'a fallout'. The person which the song is about is probably a kind of anarchist type and is not a 'normal' behaved type.
