The Decoration - Progress, Not Perfection

from by The Emo Diaries

/

lyrics

i want love and some fame, some success without shame. to seek out perfection when our past is mentioned. how can i move forward, make progress, reward her. where is the logic, what are the facts. cuz i'm having the most terrible time. feeding my ego it binges and purges, progress takes some time. sad is my version, a perfect perversion, well i guess you could be right. remember and shiver, the secrets get bigger. i'm older more sober, my memory is over. intentions revealed now, its unclear if they count. show me some structure, draw me a map. cuz i'm having the most terrible time. feeding my ego it binges and purges, progress takes some time. sad is my version, a perfect perversion, well i guess you could be right. action right away tethered to purpose. well i guess you could be right. what's the point again, forgive me i'm stupid. well, i guess you could be right
