Sip a hot mocha, kick-up-chug up to the apple box
Frankie says, "Relax", 20 says he snaps, safe wager

from Aesop Rock – Food, Clothes, Medicine Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A reference to the band Frankie Goes To Hollywood and their one hit song called “Relax”. Also I think this isn’t literally a group of soldiers, I think Aes is talking about a rehab clinic. With references to drugs through out the song and a mention of serotonin. At a rehab center, or some sort of mental hospital, they reduce you to the bare essentials in your treatment. Food, clothes, and lots of medicine.
