​Chain of Command

This song is by Andy Partridge and appears on the compilation album Fuzzy Warbles Volume 2 (2002).

How bright are the fires of thought
In a chain of command
How bright is the medical torch
When it's put in our hand

My microbes and I can't wait
To lay down and die
We realize that we must be spent
Like the cells that dissolve
When a brainwave is sent

How bright are the fires of thought
In a chain of command

How bright are the fires of thought
In a chain of command
How bright is the snap of the nerve
At your selfish big hands

My blood group and me
A body of soldiers are we
To the wound we quickly flow
And fought then with the weapons
In our chemical code

How bright are the fires of thought
In a chain of command

My microbes and I can't wait
To lay down and die
We realize that we must be spent
Like cells that dissolve
When a brainwave is sent

How bright are the fires of thought
In a chain of command

Chain of command
Chain of command
Chain of command
Chain of command
Chain of command
Chain of command
Chain of command
Chain of command
Chain of command
Chain of command...
