The Perfect Kiss

This song is by Detachments.

I stood there beside myself
Thinking hard about the weather
Then came by a friend of mine
Suggested we go out together

Then I knew it from the start
This friend of mine would fall apart
Pretending not to see his gun
I said, "Let's go out and have some fun"

I know, you know
We believe in a land of love
I know, you know
We believe in a land of love

I have always thought about
Staying here and going out
Tonight I should have stayed at home
Playing with my pleasure zone

He has always been so strange
I'd often thought he was deranged
Pretending not to see his gun
I said, "Let's go out and have some fun"

I know, you know
We believe in a land of love
I know, you know
We believe in a land of love

When you are alone at night
You search yourself for all the things that you believe are right
If you give it all away
You throw away your only chance to be here today

Then a fight breaks out on your street
You lose another broken heart in a land of meat
My friend, he took his final breath
Now I know the perfect kiss is the kiss of death
