"Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?  Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye."  Matthew 7:3-5

By Paul Aldrich

There once was a man came from way out west
Who always told everyone what was best
And if anyone tried to cross his path
He would surely receive the deadly wrath of Log Eye

He thought it was his job to enforce the Law
Tellin' all the people about the evil he saw
Tryin' to turn the bad guys into good
but he never could see that big chunk of wood

Log Eye, Log Eye
You can't stand face to face
With Log Eye

Folks used to hide when he came into town
He never understood why they weren't around
And his heart grew cold as time passed by
It's hard to make friends with a tree in your eye

Well, one day a stranger rode into town
He challenged Log Eye to a real showdown
They met face-to-face in the middle of the street
Log Eye was ready, he'd never been beat

But the stranger handed him a mirror in the shape of a book
That was it for Log eye, he only needed one look
He finally discovered that big chunk of wood
And he threw it in the fire
Now he's lookin' for good
No longer Log Eye
