13 LYRICS FROM: STING AND THE POLICE'S GOSPEL ALBUM




By Troy

Spirits In The Material World

There is no political solution
To mankind's de-evolution
Have no faith in Constitutions
There will be (is no) bloody revolution

We
||: are spirits in the material world :|| (terrestrial earth)

Our so-called preachers speak
With words they try to jail ya
They subjugate the meek
But it's the rhetoric of failure

In Christ the answer lies
In him from day to day
It's nothing you can buy
He's the life the truth the way


Mary Magdalene (Parody of Police: Roxanne)

Mary (Magdalene) (Rahab)
You can walk in the (true) light (You don't have to put out the red light)
Old days are over
you don't have to sell your body through the night

Mary
You don't have to wear that dress tonight
Walk the streets for money
Don't you care if it's wrong or if it's right

||: Mary
You don't have to walk in the night
Mary
You can walk in the light :|| (you don't have to put on the red light)

I've loved you since I knew (made) ya
I wouldn't talk down to ya'
I have to tell you just how I feel
Yah won't share you with those dirty boys (gods)

You know my mind is made up
So put away your make-up
Told you once; I tell you again
It's a bad way

||: You can walk in the light :||
Mary Magdalene Oh
Mary Magdalene


Walking With Yahweh (Walking On The Moon)

Giant steps are what you take
Walking with Yahweh
I hope my legs don't break
Walking with Yahweh

We could walk together
Walking with Yahweh
We will walk forever
Walking with; Walking with Yahweh

Walking in the Garden (All the Earth is Yah's house)
Walking with Yahweh
Walking in the Garden
Walking with Yahweh
Devil he can't come around
Walking with Yahweh
Feet don't hardly touch the ground (Feet don't hardly make no sound)
Walking with Yahweh

Some may say
I'm praising my days away
No way
If death is the price I pay
OKAY
I'll live another day (the Truth, the Life, The way)
come play
walk and pray
with Yahweh

Halle______ Halleluyah

||: Keep it up :||

Jeho__vah Elohim (was eo___eo eo eo)

Message in A Bottle (Police Parody)

Just a castaway
an island lost at sea -oh
another lonely day
with no one here but me -oh

More loneliness
than any man can bear
rescue me before I fall in to despair -oh

||: I'll send an S.O.S. to Yahweh :|| (Send your S.O.S. to YAHWEH)
||: I hope that Yahweh gets my :|| (I know that Yah will get your)
||: Message in a bottle :||

Look for psalms that say:
The kings and people gather to take my life
They'll all rejoice when they see me dead


A year has passed since I wrote my note
I should have known it right from the start
Only Yah can keep us together
Love can mend your life
but love can break your heart (and give you a new start)

CHORUS

Woke up (walked out) this morning
can't believe what I saw
100 million bottles
washed up on the shore

Seems I'm not alone in being alone
A hundred million castaways (7000 in Israel)
looking for a home (Who haven't bowed to Baal)

CHORUS

||: Sending out an S.O.S. :||


Don't Undress In Front Of Me (Don't Stand So Close To Me)

Street walkin'
Boobs talkin'
She needs some daddy time
In need of male attention
She wants to be made mine (she'll settle for some of mine)
She bends over
Oh lordy (Tight -----)
I'm trying not to look
She knows not what she's doin'
This girl's an open book

CHORUS: Don't undress, don't undress, don't undress next to me
(Background vocal: Don't undress in front of me)
Please girl/ma'am show some modesty
Wear some clothes in front of me

Her mother's dressed just like her
Except her clothes don't fit
She thinks she'll bag a husband
It she shows off her (some) ... [skin]
Flesh bulgin' fat bouncin // ((skin) hangin') fat bangin
An Elephantine whore
An Amish dress would help her
Ma'am, truly less is more

[CHORUS]
______________________________
Other background vocal lines:
(Please go home and find some clothes)
(Please don't wear that next to me)
(Your mode of dress is affecting me) (Your bod disturbs me, honestly)
Please girl, show some (develop) modesty

Verse : A or c#-
Chorus: C# Major


King Of Kings (Parody of Police: King Of Pain)

There's a drop of blood falling down from his hand
That's my King up there
Shreds of flesh hanging off where men lashed his back
That's my King up there
There's a crown of thorns twisted around his head
That's my King up there
Any minute now I know that he'll be dead
That's my King up there

We stand here and watch
Beneath the blackened sky
All of us below crying, asking why
How could this be happening?
(It's your) It was his destiny to be the King of Kings

There's a black sky above my head today
That's my King up there
The world will never be the same
That's my King up there
There's an earthquake shaking the city walls
That's my King up there
There are dead people coming up from their graves
That's my King up there

King of Kings; King of kings
You'll always be King Of Kings

Sinners spitting in His face sinner's spit runs down His face They spit in his face
sinner's spit drips in his eye (crying "why")
soldier's spear thrust in his side
powerless we watch him bleed
It was His destiny to be the King Of Kings

They stripped him naked a scarlet robe (That's my King up there)
put a reed for a scepter in his hand (That's my King up there)
They knelt down before him, mocking praise (That's my King up there)
It's your destiny to be the King of Kings

they stripped him again and put on his tattered clothes
they put vinegar and gall to is mouth

they said he saved others but he can't save
he's shouting why have you forsaken me
rocks are breaking apart

maybe he'll return
for it's his destiny to be the King Of Kings


BRIDGE:
There's an earthquake shaking Jerusalem
There's an eclipse blocking out the sun
there's an angel? ripping the temple veil
Men are shouting surely he was Yahweh's Son
There are dead men rising up from their graves



HalleluYah (Parody of Police: De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da)

HalleluYah HalleluYah
That's all we need to say/pray to you
HalleluYah HalleluYah
Praising you will pull us through

Don't think me unkind
words are hard to find
[They're only checks I've left unsigned]
from the banks of chaos in my mind
But when their eloquence escapes me
Their logic ties me up and wrecks me

Poets, priests and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions
Words that scream for your submission
No one's jamming their transmissions
When their eloquence escapes you
Their logic ties you up and wrecks you

[quote the verse about making long prayers for a show, hypocrites thinking they will be heard for their many words]

where there are many words sin is not absent

the wise man keeps his mouth shut


Keep Keep My Commands (Parody of Sting: If you love someone set them free)

keep keep keep my commands (Free free set me free)

When you need somebody (direction, salvation)
call my name
when you want real life
you can do the same
If you wanna keep something precious
gotta lock it up and throw away the key (lock it up and hide the key from me) (gotta fight corruption and thieves)
If you wanna hold on to your possessions
don't even think about me (You'll never follow me)

If you love me
If you love me
If you love me
Keep my commands (do what I say)

Keep my commandments
If you love me do what I say
Do
Keep keep, keep my words
keep keep keep my commands

I won't control an independent heart
won't tear the one I love apart
Accept without condition
believe that you can live
you can live here and be happy with less
So many riches
so many souls
everything you see, you want to possess



Get UP, Stand Up; Stand Up For What's RIght

sick and tired of the ism schism game

Preacher man don't tell me

I know you don't know what life is really worth
Half the story has never been told
Now you see the light


Every Breath You Take

Every breath I / we / you take
(You are) (I am) He is watching you / us



Walking In Your Footsteps (Parody of Police)

Two thousands years ago
Walking in your footsteps

Do you have a lesson for us
Your rule will always last
you would not hurt a fly

blood will run horse bridle high


You said the meek will inherit the earth



Every Little Thing He Does IS A Miracle (Parody of Police: ...Magic)

Every Little Thing He/you Does IS A Miracle
Everything he does is so right on
Even though my life before was tragic
still I know my life in Him goes on

I have to tell the story
of the thousand days of praise
since


I resolve to pray to you
1000 times a day
and ask you /tell you

on and on and on




Resurrected To Life (Parody of Sting: We'll Be Together)

I need you as my guide in my life
My love is a flame that burns in your name

We'll be together
Resurrected to life
