"Practice Makes Perfect" as written by Shaant Timothy Hacikyan, Jeffrey Martin Czum, Tom Falcone, Fernando Cimato and Dave Melillo....
So sweet I can hardly speak
Due to such trauma in my teeth
But your body language is telling me that you're worth the pain
So weak I can hardly keep
Shaky legs holding up my feet
But your body language is telling me I'm not to blame

Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense
I've become what mother wouldn't want in a son
I have done a few things I regret
But practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense to me

Wake up at first light hearing you calling out
For your criminal clothing that fled the scene
Upon ripping free
Conversation ensued
And I want so many things to you
Sip after sip, you insist you're a hit
Sip after sip, yeah I swear I can feel it

Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense
I've become what mother wouldn't want in a son
I have done a few things I regret
But practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense to me

I've become what mother wouldn't want in a son
I've become what mother wouldn't want in a son

Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense
I've become what mother wouldn't want in a son
I have done a few things I regret
But practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense to me

Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense
I've become what mother wouldn't want in a son
I have done a few things I regret
But practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense to me

    General Commenti like how he fakes a lisp when he sings "so sweet I can hardly speak due to such trauma in my teeth"...it's subtle but reflects the meaning of the line in a clever way

    General Commentuh, AnewGeo, are you talking about the same song here?
    Pretty sure Shaant's not a girl....

    General CommentHmm. The line, "I've become what a mother wouldn't want in a son." Is very familiar to...
    "And all of the mothers raise their babies,
    to stay away from me,
    and pray that they don’t grow up to be." Fall Out Boy - Golden.
    Just a thought though.

    General Commentok, so i really love this song. its pretty different for cute is what we aim for because their theme has revolved around high school drama and cliques. but i think this song is about messing up in life. this song reminds me of this guy i know. both his parents are chemists and he really just wants to be a rockstar. its hard, because you want to please your parents, but you have to be true to yourself. when you're caught in the middle, bad things can happen and i think thats what this song is about. practice makes perfect. you've gotta keep trying until you get it right. i love this song and i'm hellza stoked for their new album!!!

    General Commentin regards to the meaning of the song. i think it's about regret. regretting numerous things: one night stands, fights, things we've said, excessive drinking, the list could go on for miles. but within all of this regret, there is realization. realization that the past can't be changed. realization that we make mistakes to learn from them. and we learn by practice. and practice makes perfect.

    General Commenti know this prob isnt what this song is about,
    but the lines
    "practice makes perfect,
    practice makes perfect sense to me"

    makes me think of two friends who kiss eachother and tell eachother, 'oh its just for practice, we're normal'
    but they know they really actually like eachother.

    haaha, idkk. (:

    General Commenti think if you really read these lyrics and listen to the song, it actually has a deep meaning.
    i mean, shaant could be talking about his past and how he's overcome it with "practice" and such. and how he thinks his mother would rather have a son who was different. or something along those lines, i dunno.
    i think the last two lines are:
    sit back to sit, you instist you're ahead
    sit back to sit, yeah that's where i can feel it

    i'm not totally sure but it's what it sounds like to me.
