When Will Perfection End

When will they stop
When will they start
When will they be equal
When will they be fair
When will they be nice
When will they be perfect

When will you eat
When will you starve
When will you be done
When will you be clean
When will you hurt
When will you be perfect

When will I watch out
When will I be careful
When will I be quite
When will I hide
When will I be okay
When will I be perfect

When will we leave
When will we go
When will we stop
When will we think
When will we love
When will we be perfect

When will he stop hurting
When will he stop running
When will he start trying
When will he start caring
When will he stop playing
When will he be perfect

When will she cut
When will she burn
When will she kill
When will she bleed
When will she binge
When will she be perfect
