safer in the middle

It’s safer in the middle
It’s really plain to see
If someone tries to pick me off
They shoot others before me

A platoon is led by leaders
Some who aren’t around
While those of us out marching
Get picked off without a sound

You know it may sound selfish
Listen up, it isn’t dumb
It’s safer in the middle
Than with the flag or with the drum

It’s safer in the middle
At the back you’re in the hunt
If the parade should turn around
You now are at the front
