Rank & File

Moses Sumney - Rank & File

 

[intro: They in soldier mode, they in toy soldier mode right now. They can't move they hands off they sticks. Cuz they a buncha cowards]

 

[Verse 1]

Watch them assemble

Looking for trouble

March in formation

March for our nation

 

Now I don't care what i've been told (Hey, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

This police state is much cold (Hey, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

Cut from crooked cloth and mold (Hey, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

This police state is much too old (Hey, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

 

[Chorus]

Puppets, erect

With batteries set

They charge for a while

And fall right into rank and file

When they forget

That we cut the checks

They get really riled

And fall right into rank and file

 

Fall right into rank and file

 

(I’m payin’ you to harass me?)

 

[Verse 2]

Now watch how they tremble

Without credential

Orders they follow

Skin deep and hollow

Their governing master

To their hip is plastered

Say protect and serve us

But murder's not service

 

Now i don't care what i've been told (Hey, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

To kill so quick is animal (Hey, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

Now i don't care what they might say (Hey, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

It's gon' come back around one day (Hey, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

 

[Chorus]

Puppets, erect

With batteries set

They charge for a while

And fall right into rank and file

When they forget

That we cut the checks

They get really riled

And fall right into rank and file

 

Fall right into rank and file

 

[Bridge]

(That’s too much power)

 

[Verse 3]

If we make you nervous

What is your purpose

Worship your trigger

And ignore the figures

 

You're tumblin' into rank and file, and

Crumblin' into rank and file, and

Stumblin' into rank and file, and

Mumblin' into rank and file

You're humblin' into rank and file, and

Fumblin' into rank and file

You're tremblin' into rank and file

And fall right into rank and file
