Imperfectly Perfect

People Saw It at The Time

Mismatched Yet Perfectly Paired

Idealism

And

Horrific Brutality

Up-close and Unsettled

Inspired by What Lies Beneath

Purposely

Seduced and Betrayed

In a Galaxy,

Far… Far Away

We See

Belief is Potent

Every Angle

Mismatched Yet Perfectly Paired

We Understand

The World

Doesn’t

Change

For Better

Or Worse

Live
