Perfect Pain – by JMSkwARED

By:

“Perfect Pain” … loss + egomania = perfect pain.

LYRICS

I fell like Humpty Dumpty
Got a broken crown
Followed Peter Piper
Got driven out of town
I’m small as Tom Thumb
Cause Cinderella dumped me
Feeling so dumb
I can’t even get angry

No relief
Angel heart never wanted me
It’s egomania I cannot see
Through this perfect pain
Through this perfect pain

I watch Snow White get dressed
You know it made me Weepy
Lonely like the rest:
Grumpy, Dopey, and Sleepy
A dwarf in love with her
Courts a slow disaster
It takes a Prince for sure
To live happy ever after

Consternation
I’m just a baby
I cannot sleep
And half insane
I cannot see
Through this perfect pain
Through this perfect pain

Sorry, for feeling so strong
Sorry, for being so wrong
Sorry, for wanting so much to be near you

I flew like Peter Pan
But it felt like Hari Kari
Thought I’d be the Tin Man
Not too very contrary
I tried to be the Wolf
If only you’d adore me
Anyone but myself
Would make a better story

Disbelief
Angel Heart
Never wanted me
It’s egomania
I cannot see
Through this perfect pain
Through this perfect pain
