last morning when i turned my face
i lit a joint & asked the mirror "why"

i hit the street with eyes all wrong
my heart was filled with all that we could be

then i realised that
there are one million things that i need to know by heart
i need to know by heart

learn
how to feel and to survive
how to face the ones that die
how to end up,
and how,
to get start.

i need to know by heart.
