"Life is a Perception of Your Own Reality" as written by and Hale Frost....
I'd like to take this time to detach my jaw
And really take a look, I think that I'm done
Put away this old guitar, and on my way out
Hang my vocal chords up on the door

If I could just do these things
If I could maybe do these things
Each and every day wouldn't pass
The way that they so often do
That they so often do

And maybe, just maybe
Life would be everything we wanted it to be

I could even peel the skin hiding my face
And ballroom dance with the cartilage of my nose
Just to show you how to really move
Well, I'll show you how to really move

If I could just do these things
If I could maybe do these things
Each and every day wouldn't pass
The way that they so often do
That they so often do

And maybe, just maybe
Life would be everything we wanted it to be

I'll show you how to really move
I'll show you how to really move

If I could just do these things
If I could maybe do these things
Each and every day wouldn't pass
The way that they so often do
That they so often do

And maybe, just maybe
Life would be everything we wanted it to be

    General CommentI think this song is sort of stepping back and taking a look at yourself, and thinking what your life would be like if certain things were different.
    I also sort of think its kind of someone not being 'good' enough for someone els, and telling yourself if you could ontain certain qualities your lacking you could show them that you are 'good' enough and show them up.
    thats just my interpretation at least. I love this new album...its soooo great! I love Chiodos!!!!

    General Commenti agree with most of you
    but i would like to add maybe it has some personal meaning as in wishing he could be
    normal he has all these people thowing themselves at famous people and maybe its ruining something he has and wishes he could have it just like they want it.
    i donno just a thought.

    General Commentyou guys think into the song way to much. its about chiodos itself..if craig and the band just hung up there vocals/guitars, maybe life would be everything they wanted it to be..because i mean being on tour for months and the days go by every single day makes them wonder.

    General CommentI hope I can put a new perspective on this. I think what he's trying to say is be happy with things the way they are. Be happy with yourself for who you are and what you've made of yourself. Dont say, "oh I need to change this and that to make my life what I want it to be"
