So sweet I can hardly speak due to such trauma in my teeth
But your body language is telling me that you're worth the pain
So weak I can hardly keep, shaky legs holding up my feet
But your body language is telling me that I'm not to blame

Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense

I've become what a mother wouldn't want in a son
And I have done a few things I regret
But practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense to me

Wake up at first light hearing you calling out
For your criminal clothing that fled the scene upon being ripped free
Conversation ensued
And I wanna do so many things to you
Sip after sip, you insist you're a hit
Sip after sip, yeah I swear I can feel it.

Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense

I've become what a mother wouldn't want in a son
And I have done a few things I regret
I've become what a mother wouldn't want in a son
And I have done what a mother wouldn't want,
What a mother wouldn't want in a son

Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense
Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense

I've become what a mother wouldn't want in a son
And I have done a few things I regret
I've become what a mother wouldn't want in a son
And I have done what a mother wouldn't want,
What a mother wouldn't want in a...

Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense
Practice makes perfect
Practice makes perfect sense to me

    I think what it means is that in his past he's done a lot of things he knows he shouldn't have done. and he's starting to realize it. so by saying practice makes perfect he means he's trying to become something his mother could actually be proud of.
    instead of a partier, druggie, what have you.

    that's the way i look at it, & personally this song has like totally changed my view on things i've done in my own past, & helped me change for the better.

    i think its about he did things in the past that didnt make his mom proud and he regrets it. he is trying to get his life back and make his mom proud so his practice will make him perfect

    So I think this is about how he has hurt alot of people, would like to take many things back, and how the members of CIWWAF as a whole has changed from the fame, touring, and being away from family. They are going to a bunch of parties, getting laid, and trying just about any drug someone asks them to try. It happens to every band, I've seen it, and that was exactly how the felt.

    Not sure, but I guess I'll throw a different Idea out there.
    What if he's becoming like his father? What his mother wouldnt want in a son is him becoming like his father - a bad role model perhaps?
    "For your criminal court, then you fled the scene upon being let free
    Conversation ensue" If he practices mabye he wont end up just his father.
    The answer is always that practice makes perfect, right?
    Practice makes perfect sense to him
