Sting & Police - Another Day



Every day

Every day and every day

Every day, every day

Every day


Every day that goes by

A new hungry baby starts to cry

Born astride a painful grave

Drowned in hunger's tidal wave

Pick a child that you can save

It'd be the only one


If Africa escapes starvation

Not only food but education

The desert grows with every minute

Trapping everybody in it

All the children look the same

They wonder why they came


But it's hard to tell the poison from the cure

It's harder still to know the reason why, why, why

The only thing I really know for sure

Is that another day, another day's gone by, bye,bye


Every day that goes by

A brand new missile points towards the sky

We're survivors of a game of chance

Beneath an arms race avalanche

If you survive this winter's cold

You'd be the only one


If we escape annihilation

Not only hope but education

The world is ruled by Bellophiles

Adding to their weapon piles

Imagine what your taxes buy

We hardly ever try


But it's hard to tell the poison from the cure

It's harder still to know the reason why, why, why

The only thing I really know for sure

Is that another day, another day's gone by, bye,bye


That this too solid flesh

Would melt and resolve into a dew

Suffocating lassitude

Drowning in my platitude

Trapped by insecurities

I'm not the only one

If I survive this dislocation

Have to use my education


The world is ruled by Bellophiles

Adding to their weapon piles

Imagine what your taxes buy

We hardly ever try


But it's hard to tell the poison from the cure

It's harder still to know the reason why, why, why

The only thing I really know for sure

Is that another day, another day's gone by


Bye bye

Bye bye, bye bye


Bye bye

Another day’s gone by
