Parquet Courts – Total Football lyrics

[Verse 1]
We are conductors of sound, heat and energy
And I bet that you thought you had us figured out from the start
We are conduits of clear electricity
Now you’re back on the pitch to take the apparatus apart
You’re an anc-ient now
You’re an anc-ient now
You’re an anc-ient now
On your own
Rebels, teachers
Strikers, sweepers
Better protected
Whenever collected
[Verse 2]
We are troubled by your soft curiosity
But delighted to be anti everything you were taught
Are you put off by our footloose fluidity
Have your hurt caucasian feelings left you so distraught? Not at all
[Chorus 2]
Workers, authors
Poets, stoppers
Power resembled
If we are assembled
Only through those who stay awake can an institution be dismantled
It is dishonest, nay, a sin to stand for any anthem that attempts to drown out the roar of oppression
Hesse Total Football
Twombly Total Football
Tzara Total Football
Mina Total Football
Panthers Total Football
Kobra Total Football
Dada Total Football
Beatles Total Football
Swapping parts and roles is not acting but rather emancipation from expectation
Collectivism and autonomy are not mutually exclusive
Those who find discomfort in your goals of liberation will be issued no apology
And fuck Tom Brady! Are you quite done now? Are you quite done now? Are you quite done now?
