So easy to take the moral high ground When you're way up on your horse having a ride round Just through day to day life I've found You need to pipe down when your mind's talking right loud Cos it's much easier to pass judgement Than it is to be the person getting judged just look up Catch the guy there on his loyal steed Having the time of his life being royalty Handing out decrees on how something should have been When it comes to sorting summat out they're nowhere to be seen Just straddling a saddle in a paddock in a dream That we need another lecture from the king or maybe queen Full of self confidence built on self esteem Or is it just a wall so we don't see behind the scenes? Mate it's not required we don't need you on the team So do one with your massive mare and friggin’ leave us be On ya high horse Get off ya high horse If you read the Daily Mail and all that other shite Put stilts on your horse and ride the mountain sides Cos no horse... is too tall... that we can't smell the man you're Covering up, when you're sprouting all that rancour I'm sure that you were encouraged to debate During your time in Oxbridge, Eton or some other lovely place But it makes us distrust the heads of state When they stood up, said some stuff and people made out it was great Cos it sounded anti-freedom, anti-human, pro-cash And cash is the only thing that dunt exist and won't last They make us chase while they maintain a gold stash Dashing round on horseback telling us, "don't hold back Let the planet take the battering it's old hat We need energy by any means: burn the oil, frack Let the wildlife be damned it'll probably grow back Now I'm off to dodge tax and stable the old nag" It's my high horse Get off ya high horse On ya high horse Get off ya high horse Sometimes... I can't descend from my high horse Wonder whether I'm even up on it to climb orrfff Am I offering some thoughtful advice Or am I the awkward guy who's also all full of shite? People's eyes rolling as I stroll in, legs wide open, atop a stallion I know things so take polite notice, turns phones to mute and desist from your chattering I need a battering, it's embarrassing, it's not flattering, and now I'm panicking Cos how often have I bin up on horseback Without realising it was me giving a short chat? On my opinions, unwelcome as they are On what you should have done in order to make it far On what I know it is to be alive and also me Regardless of your problems, my horse and I agree We're on the right course Why's that? Cos it's my high horse On my high horse I need to get off my high horse After this next track
