"Perfect 4/4" as written by and Paulusma....
Wires fan before you, they draw you
In deep troughs and sharp peaks of green
Each cough rips through you
It wounds you
And flatlines cry wolf on the screen

if I could change the shapes of the waves
They'd all be a perfect 4/4;
If I could exchange the sky for this cage
You'd walk with me straight out the door
You'd walk with me straight

needles slip in you, they pin you
To whimpering, limping machines
Night air surrounds you, it drowns you
In billows and pillows and sheets

if I could change the shapes of the waves
They'd all be a perfect 4/4;
If I could exchange the sky for this cage
You'd walk with me straight out the door
You'd walk with me straight

wires fan before you, they draw you
In deep troughs and sharp peaks of green

    General Commentthis song is so painful to listen to. when i hear it i can't help but think that, one day, chances are i'm going to be in her position watching a dearly loved one die in a hospital bed and wishing there was something i could do to give them back their health. i can hear pure agony in her words
