This is about a girl, obsessing over every little thing. It's plaguing her mind every second of the day and she has to have complete control of what is going on, or else she breaks. This is about her.

She's afraid to take one step

In the wrong direction

Everything has to be perfect

Stressing about

She's freaking out

PERFECT

PERFECT

PERFECT

And she can't leave it like it is

SUFFERING

SUFFERING

SUFFERING

Suffering so much

From these things she can't control 

She's trapped on the inside

Trapped in these whires

Tangled in thorns and chains

Scratching at her skin and punishing her

It has to be perfect

Why can't it be perfect

PERFECT

PERFECT

PERFECT

She's trembling and shaking

Why is everything misplaced

Her fingers are bloody, burned and bruised

And she can't sleep at night

Her veins have all exploded 

Silently

She tries and tries 

Too much too hard

CONTROL

CONTROL

CONTROL

She can't let it go

Why isn't it perfect yet

Everything has to be perfect

Smile and wave 

Smile and laugh

Nothing is wrong 

IT IS JUST PERFECT
