Holier-Than-Kau

Kita cepat melatah whenever others are at fault,
Tapi bila kita salah we’re the first to bolt,
No accountability whatsoever tapi pandai tambah salt,
Tak sedar that instead of done dakwah sebenarnya tu assault.

Kita ada opinion for everything whether solicited or not,
Sometimes advice dengan nada condescending but for what?
Mungkinkah we’ve got God complex or rasa diri tinggi martabat?
This holier-than-kau attitude does more harm than good kot.

Perhaps our intentions are well-meaning tapi nampak gaya niat tak menghalalkan cara,
So maybe we should stop, take a step back dan self reflect before berbicara,
Tak semua need to be given sentapan rohani when Nabi pun gentle je dakwahnya,
Ingat, actions speak louder than words yang can cut deeper, jangan sampai ada yang terluka.

But more importantly this holier-than-kau attitude needs to go, bro,
Because more often than not banyak yang lebih memburukkan nama dan agama yo,
Not that I’m saying amar makruh nahi mungkar you should forgo,
Tapi ingat you’re as much a sinner and niat tak menghalalkan cara tho.
