Perfect
Heart-Set Self-Destruct Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

And I told you to be grateful as if you were not
And I told you don't be hateful as if you were
The best of you is the best you do I know you do your best
All the time
Serving you a favor because I want to
Serving you the flavor that I think you might like
But your favorite today is not the same
As it was yesterday, yesterday
Believed I was understanding
Believed I gave you all the tools
I Believe I made the perfect rules
Believed I was understanding
Believed I gave you all the tools
I Believe I made the perfect rules
I Believe I was understanding
I Believe I gave you all the tools
I Believed I made the perfect rules
I Believe I was understanding
I Believe I gave you all the tools
I Believed I made the perfect rules
The perfect rules
The best of you is the best you do I know you do your best
All the time
Believed I was understanding
Believed I gave you all the tools
I Believe I made the perfect rules
Believed I was understanding
Believed I gave you all the tools
I Believe I made the perfect rules
I Believe I was understanding
I Believe I gave you all the tools
I Believed I made the perfect rules
I Believe I was understanding
I Believe I gave you all the tools




I Believe I made the perfect rules
The perfect rules
