"My Perfect Day" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose and Jon Lee....
Got this dagger in my back
The blade inside me burning
Change these colours in my head
Turn to face the real thing

So what about me, what I want to be
What about me, hear me when I speak
(I can't take it, I won't make it)
(I can't take it, I won't make it)

But sometimes you feel it, do you know how it is?
You wake up in the morning and everything thing fits.
I'm still hoping tomorrow feels like this
My Perfect day

Twist inside me feel it break
The rubber band keeps turning
See the tracks worn in my face
Hallucinate while I'm burying.

So what about me, what I want to be
What about me, hear me when I speak
(I can't take it, I won't make it)
(I can't take it, I won't make it)

But sometimes you feel it, do you know how it is?
You wake up in the morning and everything thing fits.
I'm still hoping tomorrow feels like this
My Perfect day

I can't believe this anymore
I just don't see this anymore
I'm stepping out into the rain, again

See my satellite in space
Sending back the weather
Try to find myself some space
Move on up the ladder

So what about me, what I want to be
What about me, hear me when I speak
(I can't take it, I won't make it)
(I can't take it, I won't make it)

But sometimes you feel it, do you know how it is?
You wake up in the morning and everything thing fits.
I'm still hoping tomorrow feels like this
My Perfect day, My perfect day

But sometimes you feel it, do you know how it is?
You wake up in the morning and everything thing fits.
I'm still hoping tomorrow feels like this
My Perfect day, My perfect day

My Perfect day

    General Commenti agree about it being sarcastic, quite bitter, but almost hoping for a better future. i love the chorus- it does seem really happy despite te tone of the song.

    General CommentI have to disagree with you both, I think it is rather about breaking through, they sing that the day is perfect dispite of all the bad things, nothing matters because whatever makes it a perfect day is so powerful a feeling

    General CommentI would say this song is about hope. He never says that the "day" he mentions in the verses is the same day as the verses. In fact, he separates the 2 in the first line of the chorus: "but SOMETIMES I feel it".

    The message I get with that in mind is that he's having a crappy day (well, understatement but you get what I mean) and he continually hopes the next day is this perfect day. It's about hoping that the future is better than today.

    Y'know, thinking about it, a lot of Feeder's early songs are about that same theme. Tomorrow Shine, for example, is very similar. And Yesterday Went Too Soon is about the consequences of always hoping for the future. 'S interestin'. =)

    General CommentAwesome song, have to agree its a bit sarcastic. "I'm stepping out into the rain. Again" is one of those moments when someone says to themselves "When things couldn't get any worse"

    General CommentThe version on the B-Side to Stereo World kills the weak and limp version from Polythene. Vocals are far more powerful on the single.
