Lyrics for Bulls On Parade by Rage Against The Machine:

Intro
Come with it now
Come with it now

Verse 1
The microphone explodes, shattering the mold
Either drop the hits like de la O or get the fuck off the commode
With the sure shot, sure to make the bodies drop
Drop and don't copy, yo, don't call this a co-op
Terror rains drenchin', quenchin' the thirst
Of the power dons, that five-sided Fistagon
The rotten sore on the face of Mother Earth gets bigger
The trigger’s cold, empty your purse

Chorus
Rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells

Verse 2
Weapons, not food, not homes, not shoes
Not need, just feed the war, cannibal animal
I walk the corner to the rubble, that used to be a library
Line up to the mind cemetery now
What we don't know keeps the contracts alive and movin'
They don't gotta burn the books, they just remove 'em
While arms warehouses fill as quick as the cells
Rally 'round the family, pockets full of shells

Chorus
Rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells

Guitar Solo
Bulls on parade, uh

Outro
Come with it now
Come with it now
Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade

Song Facts

“Bulls on Parade” was the second single released from Rage Against the Machine’s second album, Evil Empire.

The song discusses the subliminally oppressive leaders of the world in their never ceasing quest to conquer and kill for their own gain. The title reflects this; a bull is an aggressive animal only stopped by force, as are the world’s leading governments. These bulls are going on a parade to gain, by any means necessary.

The back of the 7-inch single states, “All sounds made by guitar, bass, drums and vocals.”
