Synchronicity II is a song by The Police which is about the theory that seemingly coincidental events are connected through their meaning. Psychologist Carl Jung created the term as a way to explain paranormal events.

Sting wrote this. He read a lot about Jung, and became a believer in the concept of Synchronicity.

The Synchronicity in this song is the connection between the picket lines protesting environmental contamination and the resulting mutant-monster rising from the polluted lake. (thanks, Michael - L.A., CA)

The Synchronicity could also be seen as what is happening at the Scottish loch and what is happening inside "Daddy's" head. The monster is coming out of the water and approaching the cottage. Daddy's despair and futility over his life are boiling to the surface just as he's arriving home. We can only imagine what will happen when he goes into the house. (thanks, Heather - San Jose, CA)

The album opens with "Synchronicity I," which is a completely different song which they also used as the first song on their tour.

Synchronicity was the last album, and until 2007, the last tour for The Police. Even though they were immensely popular, Sting broke up the band to start a solo career.
