"Perfection Through Silence" as written by Alejandro M. Linares, Randy Strohmeyer, Alexander Pappas, Nathan Barcalow and Derek Doherty....
Alone at last, together in a photograph
our eyes are always open, devoted to perfection through silence

What am I supposed to do?
Should I sit, wait for you?
Listen to me screaming more

The story is old, only to those who have no mold
The truth can be bought or sold
But what are we buying?
Nothing but silence

What am I supposed to do?
Should I sit, wait for you?
Listen to me screaming more

Fold the corners, break the silence
Fold the corners, just for tonight

    General Commentyes, definitely a great song ..

    it's pretty self-explanatory, but for those of you who need some help, perfection through silence, well, it means what it says. it's the idea that by holding your toungue, you could appear more perfect, because then you won't say anything you would regret or that would make you seem flawed.. it reminds me of an incubus lyric..'High fives to a better judgement
    By saying less today, I will gain more'..well thats my 2 cents worth..
