    General CommentNobody has a comment for this song!? This song has been heavily sampled by hip-hop and R&B. It also left out the repeated "Jump! Jump! Jump!" chorus in the background.

    It's about a guy who's girlfriend broke up with him and he's ready to commit suicide.

    General CommentFerlinghetti


    Constantly risking whenever she performs
    Above the heads of her audience
    The poet, like an acrobat,
    Climbs on rhyme to a high wire and balancing
    On light beams above a sea of faces
    Paces her way to the other side of day
    Performing entrechats and sleight of foot tricks
    And other high theatrics
    I? Forget love?
    Not a chance.

    General CommentHere even experts can hardly see clear
    The women are men—the men are women here
    Young men are dancing with zest
    In evening dress, with rubber breast
    While talking in soprano—the women wear tuxedoes
    And talk like Santa Claus
    While lighting big Havanas

    If we had won—then everyone
    Would be a soldier
    The entire land would be run by goon and gun
    And all around, would be barbed wire
    Then reason would be kept in fetters
    Accused and always on the spot
    And wars would come—like operettas
    If we had won the last war
    But we were in luck—and we did not

    What good is it to have seen much such folly
    And for what—are these endlessly many
    And no two, the same
    What good to us—is all this
    And these games …

    This life is gay!
    Isn’t it sweet, ding dong?

    [paraphrased]

    General CommentAnyway, back to the album in question. It is dang near perfect. The main distinction from the past is in that the band has included quite a few instrumentals this time - perhaps it was due to the record being 'rushed', as they said, but then again, it seems like every early Police album was 'rushed', so I wouldn't know. These four instrumentals get bashed a lot, but personally, I consider them unique, idiosyncratic, innovative and atmospheric. At least the first three. 'Voices Inside My Head' is based upon a classic echoey Summers riff, while Sting counterpoints it with an equally impressive bassline and Mr Copeland is there as usual with all his tremendous fills. The song matches its title perfectly, particularly when Sting begins chanting the title somewhere from up above, and the band's dreadful 'CHA! CHA! CHA!' used to scare the shit out of me when I was a kid.
