You And Whose Army? is the fourth track on Amnesiac

History

Thom Yorke described You And Whose Army? as being:

"About someone who is elected into power by people and who then blatantly betrays them – just like Blair did."

Attempting to capture the "soft, warm, proto-doowop sound" of the 1940s harmony group the Ink Spots, the band muffled microphones with egg boxes and used the ondes Martenot's resonating palme diffuseur loudspeaker to treat the vocals.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Come on, come on
You think you'll drive me crazy?
Well, come on, come on

[Refrain]
You and whose army?
You and your cronies

[Verse 2]
Come on, come on
Holy Roman Empire
Come on if you think
Come on if you think
You can take us on
You can take us on

[Refrain]
You and whose army?
You and your cronies

[Verse 3]
You forget so easy
We ride tonight
We ride tonight
Ghost horses
Ghost horses
We ride tonight
We ride tonight
Ghost horses
Ghost horses
Ghost horses
