'the idea for 'the perfect life' video is pretty simple...wayne and i in mariachi costumes walking around l.a picking up a very random and disparate bunch of disenfranchised oddballs and leading them via trolley to a giant party on a roof overlooking l.a while the sun sets.'

Moby on 'The Perfect Life':

"Wayne Coyne and I ended up doing a duet on 'The Perfect Life': we sing the choruses together, and then go back and forth on the verses.

Wayne and I first met in 1995, when The Flaming Lips and I were both opening up for a Red Hot Chili Peppers' European tour. We became friends, shared a dressing room and the same bad craft services, and watched the Chili Peppers from the side of the stage.

I thought of Wayne for this song because The Flaming Lips have evolved in this very open, celebratory band when they play live, and that was the perfect vibe for what I was imagining for 'The Perfect Life.'

I texted Wayne and said, 'Hey, I have a song -- want to sing on it?' Thirty seconds later, he texted me back: 'Yes, send it to me, it will be great.'"

Lyrics:

Oh
We close our eyes
The perfect life
is all we need

You open up when you had me in your hands
Slipping far away with the world at your command
You sing me to sleep and then you hit me awake
It's a perfect life, a perfect life

I only want to be here when you're by my side
Oh I believe now, I'll love you 'til I die
You will sing me to sleep, you will hit me awake
in the perfect life, the perfect life

Oh
We close our eyes
The perfect life, life
is all we need

Little Mike he, steps everywhere
Knives in his pockets and bullets in his hair
He has nothing to live for, nothing left to say
He's locking all the doors to keep the older wolves at bay

Spoons and foil are all he needs.
A bed and some china
A lighter and some speed
It will sing you to sleep, it will hit you awake
In the perfect life, a perfect life.

(Guitar solo)

Oh
We close our eyes
The perfect life, life
is all we need

Oh
It goes all night
The perfect life, life
is all we need

Oh
We close our eyes
The perfect life, life
is all we need

Oh
We close our mind
The perfect life, life
is all we need

The perfect life, the perfect life, the perfect life
all we need
