"Perfect Grave" as written by Brian Howes, Dave Hesse, Logan Jacobs, Travis Nesbit, Benjamin Shillabeer and Andrew / Patrick....
In your room
You sleep all day so nothing gets to you, oh
You've dug a hole
(I know)
But I will not crawl into it with you
(I won't)
If it's the last thing I do

Chorus:
I will not follow you into a perfect grave
And I will not stand here while you throw it all away
But I'll keep hoping that you won't fall in all the way

You take your pills
You choke them down, but every swallow kills me
I've had enough
(I know)
Of digging in the dirt trying to save you
And that's the last thing I'll do

Repeat Chorus

I'll never know what you're feeling inside
Now that you're buried alive
(Buried alive)
I could keep digging and wreck my life too
But that's the last thing I'll do

Repeat Chorus

I will not follow you into a perfect grave
(A perfect grave)
And I will not stand here while you throw it all away
(A perfect grave)
But I'll keep hoping that you won't fall in all the way

    General Commenthmm seems someone is watching someone else ruin their life...but they can't stand it anymore
    "You take your pills
    You choke them down, but every swallow kills me
    I've had enough"
    he doesn't understand why they do this...he doesn't want to go down with them, but it's hard just to watch them ruin themselves, he hopes they'll get better.
    almost suicidal...meh i could be wrong.

    General CommentI could be wrong, probably, but I think this song is about a a friend having a drug addiction. Just read the lyrics thinking about it like that. It just seems that way. I'm probably wrong but oh well, that's how I see it.

    General Commenti think it means that the person the song writer is talking about is dealing with depression(In your room you sleep all day so nothing gets to you..)and they are shutting the world out.The person writing is talking about how this life that the other person is living is'nt right.That they can't stand to see the other person go down this way and they're trying to get the other person to hold on.The addiction is a good guess
    (You take your pills,you choke them down,but every swallow kills me,I've had enough.).The person definatly has issues with themselves that they've quit living they've dug themselves into an (as to say) "Perfect Grave".That's what I think at least.
