"Truth Hits Everybody" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
Sleep lay behind me like a broken ocean
Strange waking dreams before my eyes unfold
You lay there sleeping like an open doorway
I stepped outside myself and felt so cold

Take a look at my new toy
It'll blow your head in two, oh boy
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone

I thought about it and my dream was broken
I clutch at images like dying breath
And I don't want to make a fuss about it
The only certain thing in life is death

Take a look at my new toy
It'll blow your head in two, oh boy
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone

Where you want to be
Won't you ever see

Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone
Truth hits everybody
Truth hits everyone

Now

    General CommentBut if you wanna hear the Police in a more serious mood, contemplate the irresistible 'Truth Hits Everybody', the rocker to end all rockers - I don't really know how many fast rockers I've seen on MTV have modeled themselves after the 'punch' of this song and failed. 'Truth hits everybody, truth hits everyone' - simple as that, but don't forget the little bit of negligent 'whoah-whoah' vocal harmony in the chorus, it's delicious little details like that which make the grade! As well as the solemn toll of the bell - whose idea was that?

    General CommentI have a bootleg with a slow version of this song. Does anyone know more about that version, when it was recorded and was it released?
