About the song

The 1977 version of this song was published as the b-side on the Walking On The Moon UK singles (7" and 12"). It's the only studio song which features all four members of The Police - including Henry Padovani.

The song was recorded on 1977-08-10 with John Cale as original producer. The version which appeared on the single is a combination of two different takes (3:17 minutes and 3:05 minutes). Although The Police toyed with this song for the later release Henry's rhythm guitar is still there...

Another version recorded on 1978-01-17 for the Outlandos d'Amour album remains unreleased.

Lyrics

Gazed into the visions of the night
Seen the darkness fall
I've heard a mountain fall away from sight
Heard the thunder call

Seen the beast I call my father
Creature of the night
I feel the creeping darkness close
That electric light

They say the meek shall inherit the earth
How long will you keep it?
They sow a harvest but what's it worth?
There's no one left to reap it

Gazed into the visions of the night
Gazed into the visions of the night
Gazed into the visions of the night
Gazed into the visions of the night

They say the meek shall inherit the earth
How long will you keep it?
They sow a harvest but what's it worth?
There's no one left to reap it

Gazed into the visions of the night
Gazed into the visions of the night
Gazed into the visions of the night
Gazed into the visions of the night

I have gazed into the visions of night
I have gazed into the visions of night
Gazed into the visions of night
