"Perfect World" as written by Aaron Solowoniuk, Jon Gallant, Ian D'sa and Ben Kowalewicz....
All we shared was a mattress, and a lie, and an address
Baby I don't need you, well baby I don't need you
Once occupied by a goddess, now it's a room full of boxes
She said, "it's time to leave you" but baby I don't need you!

In a perfect world... her face would not exist
In a perfect world... a broken heart is fixed
In a perfect world... I'd see no therapist
In a perfect world... this wouldn't make me sick

I never got the whole story, not 'til after she left me
Baby I don't need you, well baby I don't need you
Word on the street is she fucked him, while we were playing in Cleveland
Well baby I don't need you, you're fading in my rearview

In a perfect world... her face would not exist
In a perfect world... a broken heart is fixed
In a perfect world... I'd see no therapist
In a perfect world... this wouldn't make me sick

She pulls the trigger until the gun goes click!
She pulls the trigger until the gun goes click!
In a perfect world... her face would not exist
In a perfect world... this wouldn't make me sick!

Reset my memory!

In a perfect world... her face would not exist
In a perfect world... a broken heart is fixed
In a perfect world... I'd see no therapist
In a perfect world... this wouldn't make me sick

She pulls the trigger until the gun goes click!
She pulls the trigger until the gun goes click!
She pulls the trigger until the gun goes click!
She pulls the trigger until the gun goes...

    General CommentThe line "She pulls the trigger until the gun goes click!" means, in my opinion, that she doesn't know when to stop. The girl keeps doing things to put her in a worse and worse position until finally, it "clicks" and what she did couldn't be fixed. She ruined things and there was no going back.

    General CommentBilly Talent is SO good for break up songs. Just this one and The Ex makes me feel better about breaking up. I thought sappy love songs would but I guess only Billy Talent works. Who woulda guessed?

    General CommentIt's about a girl who meant everything to him and was living with him - she left him and her 'home' for reasons she didn't disclose. He found out later she was fucking someone behind his back while he was away - and now she disgusts him and he hates his memories of her and her lies.

    General CommentI think it refers to the girl doing everything she could possibly do to hurt the guy, about whom this song is sung. She keeps shooting until there are no more bullets in the gun, so the hammer of the gun simply goes 'click'. The guy feels asif he hasn't been shot once, but about 6 (or more) times. Basicly, she hurt him in a lot of ways, imo.

    General CommentI think the narrator is wishing there was a "perfect world" in which his memory would be deleted (make him forget his painful past) and this girl (or "goddess", as she is refered to)(whom cheated on him and he only found out afterwards) would have never existed therefor all the things she did to hurt him will be forgotten..
    i think it's about time someone wrote a song about a general dream... To live in a perfect world....how many times have each of us thought.."if only the world were perfect?' or something like that? this song expresses a universal longing for something "perfect", watever ir may be, for the individual

    General CommentI belive that this is about a girl who was living with her boyfriend and she was banging another guy behind his back. She ends up leaving her boyfriend for the other guy and does not tell him why she is leaving. So now he is trying to erase all the memories that he has of her..\
