#1
KNOW MY HEART


AS I GO THROUGH
THE FRAMES OF
THE MEMORIES OF MY LIFE
PROJECT THEM ON THE CIELING
BUT THEY ALL COME OUT WHITE

I THINK I'LL GET UP
AND FIX MYSELF
ANOTHER DRINK
AND PICK AWAY THOSE PIECES OF MY
SELF-ESTEEM

I USED TO THINK I
KNEW ALL
THE PIECES OF MY HEART
BUT THEY ARE ALL SO SMALL
THAT I CANNOT
TELL THEM APART

AND WHEN I LOOK IN
THE MIRROR
ALL I EVER SEE
IS THE REFLECTION OF A MAN
THAT I WISH I
DIDN'T HAVE TO BE

SAFETY IS ONLY
WHEN I
CLOSE MY EYES
AND EVEN THEN IT'S HARD
TRYING TO FIND a
PLACE TO HIDE

ESCAPING THE CONVICTIONS
OF MY EVERYDAY LIFE
LIKE TRYING TO PIECE A PUZZLE
WHERE THERE
IS NO LIGHT
