"Rehumanize Yourself" as written by Stewart Copeland and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
He goes out at night with his big boots on
None of his friends know right from wrong
They kick a boy to death 'cause he don't belong
You've got to humanize yourself

A policeman put on his uniform
He'd like to have a gun just to keep him warm
Because violence here is a social norm
You've got to humanize yourself

Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself

I work all day at the factory
I'm building a machine that's not for me
There must be a reason that I can't see
You've got to humanize yourself

Billy's joined the National Front
He always was a little runt
He's got his hand in the air with the other cunts
You've got to humanize yourself

Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself

I work all day at the factory
I'm building a machine that's not for me
There must be a reason that I can't see
You've got to humanize yourself

A policeman put on his uniform
He'd like to have a gun just to keep him warm
Because violence here is a social norm
You've got to humanize yourself

Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself

Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself

Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself

Re-humanize yourself
Re-humanize yourself

    General CommentBy contrast [to “Secret Journey”], “Rehumanize Yourself,” after resisting the urge to break into an up-tempo version of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson” in a variety of keys, grafted alienated-by-technology-and-violence characters onto Koestler’s notion that “society is gradually dehumanizing itself.”

    [From Rock & Holy Rollers: The Spiritual Beliefs of Chart-Topping Rock Stars in Their Lives and Lyrics by Geoffrey D. Falk.]

    General CommentOh silly me. In the midst of all this Stu bestows 'Rehumanize Yourself' upon us - a fast, lightweight, funny popster along the lines of 'Bombs Away', a perfect breather in between the more 'experimental' stuff, too bad it gets lost so often. Might just be the greatest song the Police ever put out.
