this song was inspired by a funny instagram post because it's 2016 and no art is sacred anymore


I'm losing my mind
it's alright if you don't throw it, but please don't be so unkind
armed cocked back and ready to throw
you call it a game, but what you don't know is that I don't like it much

I'm losing my appetite
I know that you don't notice when I don't go to sleep at night
walking aimlessly around the backyard
thinking of my past owner who tore me apart
when I was too scared to run away

I'm losing my health
I'm too weak to stand and it's been awhile since you've knelt
I don't need to be force-fed, I just wish you'd recognize
that my bowl never empties and all I ever do is cry
but it seems you're too busy for me

I just wish you'd appreciate me before I'm gone
because you know that dogs don't live for long
