inspired by a story someone told me about their childhood dog, but I don't remember who the person is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

lyrics

Cut the old and perfectly good ties.
Try and force a new friendship your old friends wouldn’t like.
Inviting hues of familiar blue in the sky.
Makes your mother smile, but it’s all grey in your eyes.

If there’s a dog that can play fetch by himself,
well, that ain’t sad; he’s better off.
He can be happy without anybody’s help.

Take your pain that is your pleasure in disguise.
Try and force it down the drain—the sink will clog.
Water will rise until you’ve drowned in the basement
and you didn’t even try to run up to the roof
to survive.

If there’s a dog that can play fetch by himself,
well, that ain’t sad; he’s better off.
He can be happy without anybody’s help.

Draw a bold and unbroken yellow line, and say,
“That side is yours, and this side, this side is mine.
And if you cross, I warn you know and apologize for what I’ll do.
I’ll go back to being friends with you.”

If there’s a dog that can play fetch by himself,
well, that ain’t sad; he’s better off.
He can be happy without anybody’s help.
