listen

I saw a lamb when she was born
The army retreated back up north
When she came and your harness ripped
On the coffee stained seams I had fixed

Do you ever feel small in your clothes
After watching a marathon of episodes
About the time that we weren't proud
Of what the world had done

Wake up to find your phone is dead
Missed the three alarms you'd planned in bed
Check your feed get up to speed
With all the things you said you'd do

Count your steps and see who's lied
Today in the newspaper down your fries
Pet the cat on the street when you walk on by
As he expects you to

Hear your voice
Listen to it
