Perfection – Song Lyrics

Standard

Verse One
Someday long ago
Tears for a tale of woe
And smiles for what you perceive

Never right now
Silence as you take a bow
And voices as you prepare to leave

Advocate devil’s advice
Lies you can’t hear twice
And truths you can’t ever hear

One liberated urge
Children right there on the verge
And adults who can only fear

Bridge
It’s happened before
It’ll happen again
The question is only a question of when

Chorus
Can you see your imperfection
And the beauty of it all?
Will you help to build it up
Or push and watch it fall?
Will you find true pleasure
In what it simply means to be?
Can you see perfection
In the imperfection that is you and me?

Verse Two
After solid steel
Nothing is hard to conceal
And most things are a bitch to find

Maybe right here
Thoughts become truly clear
And abstracts take shape in your mind

You’ve always prayed
You wouldn’t need to seek the blade
Or find redemption in the ground

Lucky in this tale
Love can’t be drawn to scale
And hate won’t let itself be bound

Bridge
It’s happened before
It’ll happen again
The question is only a question of when

Chorus
Can you see your imperfection
And the beauty of it all?
Will you help to build it up
Or push and watch it fall?
Will you find true pleasure
In what it simply means to be?
Can you see perfection
In the imperfection that is you and me?

Coda
Maybe it seems impossible
A world where no-one thinks like this
Where promises are meaningful
And problems disappear with a single kiss
Maybe it seems inevitable
That no-one will never break
To you it seems laughable
A world that never thinks to take

Chorus
Can you see your imperfection
And the beauty of it all?
Will you help to build it up
Or push and watch it fall?
Will you find true pleasure
In what it simply means to be?
Can you see perfection
In the imperfection that is you and me?
