Hear the sound of pure frustration
Hear the sound of caterwaul
This is not natural, this is not natural
What’s the point of a thousand people
You don’t care to understand?
What’s the point of a grip on friendship
With someone you just condescend?

I know, I know, I know
I know

Funny how you choose to respect me
At self affirming times,
But when you see no fall out
I become the simpleton
And if I had no filter
Between my heart and mouth
These words would be my warcry
My strong fibonacci’s shout

Oh Lord, help me now
With lips just like Moses, on words I can’t get around
Holy Spirit, bless this mouth
Fumbled on syllables straight from the dunces house
Caught tongue, when the moments’ crowned
I’ve made a fool of myself yet again somehow
Can you hear me now?
Can you hear me now?
