What Is It With These... “ Know It Alls “... ?!?

They Seem To THINK That They’re CHOSEN...
When They... HAVEN'T Been CALLED... ?!?

They Really Make Me SICK...
With... ALL Their TALK... !!!

“You Shouldn’t Do This... !!!
You Need To Do That... !!!”

Always Running Some Chat...
As If They’re ALL THAT... !!!

You Have To Wonder WHY...
... Within Their Minds...
They Continually Try...
To Be The WISEST Guy...

Who Knows EVERY LAST THING...
About... EVERYTHING... !?!

They’re INCREDIBLE Folk...
And That Is... NO JOKE... !!!

They Know More About YOU...
Than YOU Seem To Do... ?!?

They Know Every Last Truth...
When They DON’T Even Have Proof... ?!?

They Know About Your Life... !!!

About... What You’ve Done WRONG... !!!
And... What You’ve Done RIGHT... ?!?

And They Even Have The Cheek...
To Think That They Can Speak...
About Issues Within YOUR Family...

As If They’ve... SEEN...
EVERYTHING That You’ve Seen... ?!?
...... Your Family DO.......
When That’s Just NOT TRUE... !?!

The Know It All... PROVES...
How A FOOL REALLY MOVES... !!!

So of Course They’re EXPERTS...
On... YOUR LIFE’s WORTH...
And How You Should Turn...

When It Comes To...
... Your Work...

When It Comes To...
... Your Health...

When It Comes To...
... Your Wealth...

And Of COURSE... How YOU...
Should Conduct Yourself... ?!?

... FRUSTRATED Souls...
Who Just CAN'T Control...
Running Off Their Mouths...
Uptown And Downtown... !!!

The Type of... CLOWNS...
With NO Circus Grounds... ?!?

Because What They’ve Found...
... WITHOUT ANY DOUBT...

Is That They Know EVERYTHING... !!!
But INSECURITIES Live Within Their Skin... !!!!!

So They’re QUICK To INSIST...
That They’re... NOT STUPID... !!!

And Are... NEVER WRONG...
Which Is A... PROBLEM... !!!

They DON'T Deal In BLAME...
Is... What They CLAIM... ?!?

They See... “ People The Same “...

Except For Those People...
... OUTSIDE of Their Race... ?!?

They DON'T Get Angry...
But Can’t AGREE To DISAGREE... ?!?

WITHOUT Behaving Like A Child...
Tantrums Profiled... Within Their Moods...

But They’ll... TELL You...
That Their Always Cool...

I Mean These KNOW IT ALL's...

REALLY Have Some GALL...
And A Whole Lot of FRONT... !!!

But The PROBLEM With Their Talk...
Is That It... LACKS WISDOM... !!!

Their Visions Are Warped...
And... ILL - INFORMED...
Because They’re Born...
From ARROGANT Shores... !!!

Always Claiming To Know...
What They CLEARLY DON’T... ?

They DON'T APOLOGISE...
Because They’re ALWAYS RIGHT... !!!

So... DENIAL's A Friend...
That They Keep REAL CLOSE... !!!

So When They Start To Blow...
It’s BEST To Let Them GO...................... !!!

Because What Comes Next...
Are Things EXPRESSED...
That Clearly Should NEVER...
EVER Leave Their Heads... !!!!

I Mean... Who Is PERFECT... ?!?

But THEM They’re Too CLEVER...
To EVER... ACCEPT...

That They Could Be... WRONG...
Because They’re OH SO STRONG... !!!

In The Things That They Express...
EVEN WHEN They’re Out of Their Depth... !!!!

But In Times of STRESS...
It Seems That Their Heads...
Start To... EXPLODE... !!!

From Their CORE Node...
When Their Life’s On HOLD...
And Their Thoughts Go To Zones...
Where FRUSTRATIONS ROAM...

They Are Pieces of Work... !!!
When It Comes To The Words...
That They NEED To Be HEARD...

TELLING You Things...
That Are WEAKER Than Links...
That... CANNOT Resist...

BREAKING... Like News...
That CONFUSES TRUTH... !!!
With... Tainted Views...

That Make Me Now Conclude...

That There Are...
... MORE Than A FEW... !!!

Whose Lives LOOK All Good...
But When You Look UNDER The Hood...

They’ve Got... ISSUES... !!!
That Provide The FUEL...
For Them To... ABUSE...
In The Talk That They Use...

That Is The DOWNFALL...

of....

... “ The Know It All “... !!!
