"Perfect World" as written by Clifford Smith and Robert F. Diggs....
Somewhere between a lie and truth
Lies a subtle line of gray and
Although it's undetectable
It's reflected in all we say

We don't want to hate or judge each other
We just want to live our lives
To save ourselves, we must seek the truth
And recognize these rites

I have my motivation, prejudice and pain
I will not live my life, live my life in vain
I have my motivation, prejudice and pain
No, I will not live my life, live my life in vain

This more-than-human condition
A denial of our flaws
We want the effects of perfection
But disregard the cause

A simple mistaken judgment
An unmistakable fact of life
We want to say we can do no wrong
But wrong's what defines right

In a perfect world, in a perfect world
In a perfect world that I can't live
In a perfect world, in a perfect world
In a perfect world that I can't live

In a perfect world, in a perfect world
In a perfect world that I can't live

We're fallible, we're so fragile
We suffer for our sins
We have to learn to learn from our mistakes
And somehow make amends

Stress and instability
Depression and dismay
We want to live without regrets
But there is no other way
You can't have it, you can't have it all
