Five long quotes from five Sting’s lyrics

1. He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn’t play for the money he wins
He doesn’t play for the respect
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

2. When there’s no information
And the compass turns to
nowhere that you know well
Let your soul be your pilot
Let your soul guide you
He’ll guide you well

3.This ain’t no time for doubting your power
This ain’t no time for hiding your care
You’re climbing down from an ivory tower
You’ve got a stake in the world we ought to share

4. In the quiet time of evening
When the stars assume their patterns
And the day has made his journey
And we wondered just what happened
To the life we knew before the world changed
When not a thing I held was true

5. When the world is running down
You make the best of what’s still around
