"When you point one finger, there are three fingers pointing back to you."

lyrics

My Finger

I can point my finger; tell you what to do,
how to live your life, from my point of view.
I condemn the unemployed, standing in the queue,
forgetting how easily I could join them too.

Call myself a good man; tell you I’m all right.
Hypocrisy is a stranger to my educated mind.

I can point my finger, say that it’s not right,
I voted for a government that should fight for my might.
I condemn the teenager, shouting in the night,
forgetting all about my very first love bite.

Call myself a good man; tell you I’m all right.
Hypocrisy is a stranger to my educated mind.

I can point my finger, say that it’s OK,
anything I choose to trash, I simply throw away.
I condemn the rich man on his yacht while he’s at play,
forgetting my dreams of gold, they faded yesterday.

Call myself a good man; tell you I’m all right.
Hypocrisy is a stranger to my educated mind.

I can point my finger, but never at my mind,
my problems lie with you my friend, I think we both will find.
I condemn the anger from you and all your kind,
forgetting my intolerance and petitions that I’ve signed.

Call myself a good man; tell you I’m all right.
Hypocrisy is a stranger to my educated mind.
