Company Man

Arkells

Band/Artist: Arkells

Album: Rally Cry

Passed down from your father, you come by it honestly
Passed out from exhaustion
Looking around for some relief

You put your money on the wrong horse
All alone and in the middle of nowhere
You put your money on the wrong horse
Premonitions start to whisper:

When you've always been a company man
But who did you used to be?
You're out here flying the flag
But lost track of what it really means
When you've always been a company man
Got the ground coming out from underneath
Hey company man, start walking on your own two feet!

I get it, I get it, you can eat pretty good
But just cause you can doesn't mean that you should
I get it, I get it, you're just misunderstood
You said, "gimmie a minute man, let me explain"

But you hitch your wagon to the wrong horse
You turned around and asked, "how did we get here?"
You hitch your wagon to the wrong horse
Premonitions start to whisper:

When you've always been a company man
But who did you used to be?
You're out here flying the flag
But lost track of what it really means
When you've always been a company man
Got the ground coming out from underneath
Hey company man, start walking on your own two feet!

Dig it up, dig it up all day
Take a toll, take a toll on the body
Serve it up, serve it up, no shame
That's a pretty good deal for you
There's a new day coming for you
