"Perfect World" as written by and Amy Elizabeth Ray....
We get to be, a ripple in the water
We get to be a rock that's thrown
We get to be a boy on the bridge
Standing over the reservoir
See the water lap along the shore line
The buried forest of a man made lake
Cemeteries are laying underneath it
Your heart like a dam when it breaks

We are floating, we are swimming
And in this moment we are forgetting
What it costs, what it takes
For one perfect world
When we look the other way

I'm okay, if I don't look a little closer
I'm OK if I don't see beyond the shore
I'm OK if I don't have to do the killing
Or know what the killing is for

We are talking, we are driving
And in this moment we are denying
What it costs, what it takes
For one perfect world
When we look the other way
It's one perfect world
When we look the other way
It's one perfect world
When we look the other way
It's one perfect world

If you can't see beyond the myth of isolation
And the miracle of daybreak doesn't move you anymore
Connect the points and see the constellations
As the night comes down on the reservoir

We are swimming, we are floating
And in this moment we are beholden to
What it costs, to what it takes
For one perfect world
Can we learn to live another way?
It's one perfect world
Can we learn to live another way?
It's one perfect world
Can we learn to live another way?
It's one perfect world

We get to be a ripple in the water

    General CommentThe singer is describing all the great visual things of the world, leaving out all the inner things that are going wrong. "One perfect world when we look the other way." Things look great when you're just at the surface. Some people shut their eyes to all that's going wrong, and just pretend everything is okay. The singer is saying that doing that is not okay.
