Once was this ball with a line straight down the middle
One side was black and the other one white
And they both understood so little
That they spent their whole lives tryin' 2 tell each other what time it was
And all along it did not matter what either said
Because, because

U only know what u know
U only see what your heart will show
U only love when your soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And in the end that's where we'll go
So let's go

There once was a golden idol that went 2 the winners
Needless 2 say, it didn't make 'em feel any less a sinner
Cuz the very next mornin' the whole damn world was the same
Yes it was
The idol's still shinin' but the voice inside it said,
"There ain't no winners in this game"

U only know what u know
U only see what your heart will show
U only love when your soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And in the end that's where we'll go
So let's go

There once was an angel
Who most certainly watched over me
But if it got me through the day
Is it crazy?
Yeah, I'll be crazy

Until the demons fall as far as anyone can fall
When they reap what they done sowed, I'll be standin' tall
We spend our whole lives tryin' 2 dog the other man
When what we need 2 do is try to give him all we can

But, uh, u only know what u know
And, uh, u only see what your heart'll show
And, uh, u only love when your soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And in the end that's where we'll go
So let's go

Let's go
Let's go!

    “we only know what we know” ‘we only see what our heart will show’….
    There is a system in the brain reticular activating system-it's the system within our brain/mind that helps us notice what to notice and what not to notice -
    Obviously we can't notice everythig that is going around us , every smell ,every object etc otherwise we'd go nuts. So this system stays in alignment with only things that our mind and subconscious kept as a 'belief system' our own individual truths of life -that's what it will only allow us to see-that's how this system knows what to let us see-
    It will only radar and let you see the world from from only 'that' point of view- it will search out only what it knows, that things you have kept in your mind,the minds refrences(even the bad memories)are most comfortable feeling because we are so familiar in feeling them. We might hate something ,yet we search it out and invite it into our life because it's something common to us,it's not forgeinit will not look for something that you don't believe. We get too use to practicing in our minds,what we don't want. We condition ourselves on what we will see-. Other things are true too-but are distorted or ignored-
    Because it would disrupt your belief system if we did otherwise. (sometimes its not a bad idea to drop and upgrade our beliefs-they might be false).
    What you hold within will be radared and will be chosen by your mind and will then be manifested in real life-‘we only see what we know’ that’s all it will show.
    We use what happens on the outside world to satisfy what our belief system believes to be true in the inside of our mind and ignore the rest of the events that happen during the day--or we distort things to fit into our beliefs. We usually use others to make ourselves feel bad feelings we are use to feeling. We usually act accordingly to what ever label we've given ourselves. Another example-the statement i have depression. You will pick and choose
    Each and every single bad thing to think about –no wonder you ‘create’ depression-if you
    Picked and concentrate on every good thing that happened during the day-would you feel depressed. ’we only see what our heart will show’
