holier than thou

snow plow

breaking through the

common crowds

set an example

and do it right

preach to the masses

prompt some fights

because you’re a holier than thou

snow plow

sharing with the peasants

your know how

you know you’re right

and everyone else is wrong

so wave your flag

and sing your song

cross everyone’s lines

and hop along

the toes of those

who say you can do wrong

because you’re a holier than thou

snow plow

crashing through

the common crowds

you can do no wrong

and speak only right

but three rights make a left

then you’re lost at night

no light of snub

to guide your way

no approving nods

to make you stay

because you’re a holier than thou

snow plow

running on the fuel

of corrected crowds

under your waves

on your rightful ship

sailing by

they’ll never see you slip

but fuel runs out

and fires burn down

and once you’ve crashed

through the whole damn town

you’ll find you’re alone

with your stuck up nose

smelling the manure

of your own compose

because you’re a holier than thou

snow plow

no hammers or wrenches

no know how

no attempt to help

others out now

just opinions aimed

left and right

like righteous bullets

to a knife fight

so holier than thou

snow plow

we think its time

you break down

keep down

your own head now

and be humbled again

brought back to Earth now

you have your own past

just like everyone

so put down your nose

put down your guns

you’ve done a good job healing

now run along

and leave others to write

their own damn songs

you’re a holier than thou

snow plow

but it’s summertime
