"Picture Perfect (In Your Eyes)" as written by and Jesse/vodinh Hasek....
In your eye's is the picture perfect.
In your eye's does the grass look greener.
Have you seen it though my eye's.

The world has caught on fire from what I've been told.
These city lights are killing ever slowly.
The sanity with in me.
Maybe I lost in my creation.
This isn't how I thought I turn out.

[Chorus 1]
In your eye's I'm picture perfect.
In your eye's the grass is greener.
Have you seen it though my eye's.
Cause through my eye's.

Stars are burning brighter.
So bright we can't ignore.
We're hypnotized drive-by's, train wrecks tragedy are patient.
Maybe I a product of my placement.
Given no doubt to make up our minds.

[Chorus 1]

In your eye's I'm so picture perfect.
In your eye's the grass is greener.
Have you seen it though my eye's.
Through my eye's.
Through my eye's.
Through my eye's.

[Chorus 2]
Pay attention please.
He who lusts through life for excess in this world.
Dies a lonely man, careless of his soul.
Throwing caution to the wind with foolish ignorance.
You're full of pride.
And in arrogance you can't accept the nearing end of this short lived life.

Smile and give a toast, brag and boast.
Fool the world with all of your lies.
The parasite's host never even knows.
Pull the wool over our eyes.

Walk the line and pay the price.
A pound of flesh for paradise.
Wear the wounds of your demise.

Fail to mention your intentions, fail to mention why.
The actions of your life contradict your words...
The path in which you walk is a vice of no remorse.
Washing conscience from the skin, claiming innocence.
Ignore the signs.

From cradle to grave, you chose to trade.
A pound of flesh for paradise.
Wear the wounds of your demise.

[Chorus 2]

Smile and give a toast, brag and boast.
Fool the world with all of your lies.
The parasite's host never even knows.
Pull the wool over our eyes.

From cradle to grave, you chose to trade.
A pound of flesh for paradise.
Wear the wounds of your demise.

    General Comment"The content of 'Picture Perfect' is pretty much about this whole ridiculous world we've been thrown into. Everyone thinks you have it made. That phrase 'the grass is always greener on the other side.' It was such a hard process to make this record and that's one of the things that was on my mind. I didn't want people thinking everything was handed to us when we have been working our asses off to make this album. That's what the media wants you to believe. That it's black and white. You're either picture perfect, or you're a total train wreck." - Jesse Hayek

    General CommentHe's just trying explaining how the world is to someone and in his eyes it's very much the opposite of what the other person thinks. And is kinda lost because through the other person's eyes he's "picture perfect" and he doesn't see himself like that at all by saying "have you seen it through my eyes?" and .. yeah.. I dunno, I think this song's very literal, I dunno if you have to do 'a lot' of thinking for this one.. I like it.. but yeah, kinda disappointed in their new album.. but at the same time I'm enjoying it. I dunno. It's a odd adjustment for me.

    My InterpretationI have to agree with TranceRufus, it does seem to be a play on the saying "the grass is always greener." It is basically the pessimist vs the optomist. Anonymous23 had it too, he is basically questioning how someone sees the world as pretty, "greener." He sees all his flaws but the other sees him as "Picture Perfect." Not to get religious, but i could see a a connection. Not big but the whole thing that god can see pas flaws even in this world.

    General CommentThe rest of the lyrics:

    Pay attention please.
    He who lusts through life for excess in this world.
    Dies a lonely man, careless of his soul.
    Throwing caution to the wind with foolish ignorance.
    You're full of pride.
    And in arrogance you can't accept the nearing end of this short lived life.

    Smile and give a toast, brag and boast.
    Fool the world with all of your lies.
    The parasite's host never even knows.
    Pull the wool over our eyes.

    Walk the line and pay the price.
    A pound of flesh for paradise.
    Wear the wounds of your demise.

    Fail to mention your intentions, fail to mention why.
    The actions of your life contradict your words...
    The path in which you walk is a vice of no remorse.
    Washing conscience from the skin, claiming innocence.
    Ignore the signs.

    From cradle to grave, you chose to trade.
    A pound of flesh for paradise.
    Wear the wounds of your demise.

    Pay attention please.
    He who lusts through life for excess in this world.
    Dies a lonely man, careless of his soul.
    Throwing caution to the wind with foolish ignorance.
    You're full of pride.
    And in arrogance you can't accept the nearing end of this short lived life.

    Smile and give a toast, brag and boast.
    Fool the world with all of your lies.

    From cradle to grave, you chose to trade.
    A pound of flesh for paradise.
    Wear the wounds of your demise.

    General CommentI think the song is about how someone sees him and everything around him as if making up a fake world where everthings perfect but he doesn't live in the same dream with this person. He's trying to tell them that it's not this way. He wants them to come down out of the clouds and listen to him.
