What Standards is about judgment and being judgmental. We tend to judge everyone by our own standards, but who is to say if your own standards are high enough to allow you to be judgmental of others.
By what standards
Do you sit in judgement of me?
Condemn me for sins I may have carried out
While hiding your own behind a mantle of honour
Yes you! Who seem so righteous?
You who are nothing but a cess-pit of living sin
Which so far has not been discovered
If the lives of all honourable men
Were held under the burning flame of truth
The stink would permeate the air
Until mankind’s reign was through
For this is no honour among gentlemen
Yet slightly more among thieves
But thieves are always the losers
It is said that the law is an ass
And I believe there is a law for the rich
And another for the poor
And never do they coincide
Or even run parallel:
So by what standards do you judge me?
By what right do you send me to war?
Condemn me to death on some foreign shore
You the politicians
Who have never seen the wounded and maimed?
Nor seen the deaths caused in your name
