Working at Perfekt

Working At Perfekt


Geddy Lee | Solo Album

Words and music by Geddy Lee

Draw a line
Strong and clear
Make it bend to your will
All the lines
In a face
So hard to make stand still

‘Til the flaws disappear
‘Til what’s wrong disappears
‘Til all that’s wrong will disappear

Working at perfekt
Got me down on my knees
Success to failure
Just a matter of degrees
Success to failure
Just a matter of degrees

All the colours of the day
Have somehow disappeared
All the colours of the universe
Are closer than they appear

Are not as close as they appear
Are not as close as they appear
Are not as close as they appear
Nothing is perfekt
Certainly not me
Success to failure
Is just a matter of degrees
Working at perfekt
Got me down on my knees

But when it’s right
It’s right as rain
And when it’s right
There is no pain
And when it’s right
You start again

Working at perfekt
Got you down on your knees
Success to failure
Just a matter of degrees
Success to failure
Just a matter of degrees

Slipping

Slipping

Meant To Tell You
Tell You From The Start
Meant To Show You
What’s Inside This Shallow Heart
But I Could Not Find The Words
Worthy Enough To Say

I Slipped Along The Way
I Slipped Along The Way

Tried To Be There
Be There When You Fall
Tried To Make You Feel Big
When Life Makes You Feel Small
But I Could Not Find The Steps
Quickly Enough To Take

I Slipped Along The Way
I Slipped Along The Way

Want To Change Things
Want To Clear The Air
Fix The Things Around Us
So Badly In Need Of Repair
But I Might Not Have The Sense
Sense Enough To Change

I Slipped Along The Way

Still
