Shepherd's Pride is a song by Street Pharmacy that appears on their 2012 EP "Alimony". It was co-written by Drummer Dan Fretz and Guitarist/Vocalist Ryan Guay. This songwriting partnership resulted in a spooky sounding reggae-rock jam full of ire vibes and dark lyrical imagery about the failure of a leader to tend to his people's needs. The single was recorded and mixed at Catherine North Studios by Michael Chambers and Marcone. In July of 2013, Street Pharmacy set out near the edge of the Welland Canal to shoot a music video for their single "Shepherd's Pride".

The shepherd tried but he couldn't hold up alone.
The shepherd tried but they didn't survive, he led his flock into a pack of hungry wolves.
He lost his flock who's gunna follow him now?
They'll never follow again.

The shepherd tried but he'll never hold all the strings.
The shepherd lied to his followers' eyes by putting forward a facade of holy things.
He lost his flock, who's gunna follow him now?
They'll never follow again.

He can't fight the fever, though his head is to explode.
He can't lift it either, yet he caries the load.
He can't fight his ego, for his pride is much to bold.
And he can't see the veto from those he holds close.

The shepherd but he couldn't take all the blows.
The shepherd, couldn't swallow his pride. He led his flock into a world of moral lows.
