"My Direction" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley, Dave Baksh and Greig Andrew Nori....
Perfection is my direction,
Even if that's all I had.
It's not like I need no correction,
I just know that life's not so bad.

Picture this everyday kids that just can't find a way.
Stuck in disarray can't find hope for better days.
It's the degeneration of childgood frustration.

In the last 30 years
Teenage suicide has increased 300% in North America;
It is the second major cause of death in Canada.

Perfection is my direction,
Even if that's all I had.
It's not like I need no correction.
I just know that life's no so bad.

When will all my problens disappear.
Am I just going crazy from the fear.
Oh my oh my I'm going far past the brink.
This pressure's like a weight,
And I still can't think straight.

Perfection is my direction,
Even if that's all I had.
It's not like I need no correction,
I just know that life's not so bad.

I've met my destinations,
So what's left to complain about.
With all these aggravations,
Building till the seams fall out.

I'm running my mouth dry,
With every time I lie.
Don't tell me without a doubt
This dumbfound luck has all run out.

Perfection is my direction,
Even if that's all I had.
It's not like I need no correction, I just know that life's not so bad.

    General CommentI love this song.

    It's not like I need no correction
    I just know that life's not so bad

    Because they're saying that even though they're trying to be perfect, they aren't yet and they do need to do some things better.
    And it's true


    Life's not so bad

    General CommentGreat song, in my opinion.

    After all, life is not so bad, even though you aren't [and won't ever be] perfect.
