Description
A few years ago I met one of the most beautiful women I know. She is gorgeous. This song is for her. She has Body Dysmorphic Disorder or BDD. It is a cousin to Anorexia, in that it affects the afflicted person's sense of perception. She sees flaws in her physical appearance that just aren't there. She can't bring herself to go out unless she spends literally hours on her hair and make up, anywhere between 3 to 6 hours depending on how she is feeling at the time. Then, when she does make it out the door it is a terrifying experience for her, and usually she has to have a few drinks to quell all the nerves. So it is rare that she even leaves her house. I can't imagine having to live with this disorder that very often leads to suicide. She is doing well and is trying very hard to find ways to cope. I hope she is able to overcome it ultimately. This is for you A.



I have been working on this song for over 2 years mostly the arrangement although I have been recording it and mixing it for almost 6 months. I couldn't put it together the way I was hearing it in my head. Enter Ed Wemmerus This man is easily one of the best producers we have here at MJ. This song wouldn't be what it is without his input as a producer and an artist. I was still having trouble with the song up until last night. I was furiously throwing as much mud against the wall as I could, frantically trying to tweak it into submission. Moaning all the while to Ed that it was missing something. I sent what I thought was the final mix to Ed last night thinking I should just upload it and be done with it. Well... I am glad I didn't. This morning I got into it again and Ed got ahold of me online minutes after I started thinking "to hell with it I'll just upload it this way". "Check your email" he said, "I sent you another guitar track I did this morning" (today). It was a track with Ed just playing spontaneously noodling with some call and response and fills. With very little re-arranging the track you hear panned slightly to the right with a clean telecaster sound is what he sent me. I still can't believe how it so expertly filled what I wanted for the song but couldn't get from my head to my hands (very often my biggest problem). It is like he reached right into my head and pulled it out, and then very humbly gave it to me. He still maintains it was nothing... just something to do on a Thursday morning. Thank you Ed you are the producer, performer, and co- writer of "Perception".

Lyrics
Perception © 2008 Guy Groves / Ed Wemmerus

She's on the outside
outside looking in
Different on the inside
she'll never let you in.
It's always in the mirror
hideous and grotesque
Paralyzed by a fear
that never lets her rest
Chorus
Perception is the key
Perception is the lock
It's a vicious circle
Caught between a hard place
and a rock

It's like a stain that won't come out
that everyones gonna see
It's an ever present doubt
it never lets her be
The surface might be calm
there's a current underneath
She's been fighting it for so long
she's never known peace.
Chorus
Bridge
I wanna make it right for her
and help her see again
Wrap my arms around her
and chase away the pain
Chorus
solo
Chorus out

this is
such a good summary of the disorder. I always wondered if you kept up with how she is doing. Glad you managed to get this recorded and had the help of the wonderful Mr Ed. A great tribute and love the vocal style on this one

Nice one Guy! Solid structure, the song builds towards the chorus, and the chorus resolves really well. The vocals are really well done, sung with a lot of passion. I like the minor bluesy feel of the arrangement. Ed's guitar on the right channel fits great. Production sounds great.

Yes she is something else inside and out. The patience comes with protest.

I do love the quality that comes with it.

great song
This is such a good treatment of the disorder. I have never heard of it - seems like it is kin to agoraphobia of maybe that becomes a mis diagnosis... At any rate. You did well by bringing Ed in the project. Everything he touches shines so good. But the main thing is the choice of the acoustic guitar. I can tell this is truly a work of love. 2 years is a long time to work on a song but can understand taking the time on it. I am listening it again.

Andy
Thank you. It doesn't get a lot of attention. No one who has it wants to be discovered. Because it affects people the way it does more than a few never get help because there is no physical signs of the disorder. They usually are only discovered when they physically alter their appearance in some drastic or severe way or god forbid when they can no longer live with the psychological weight of the perceived flaws in their appearance.

Thank you again Andy your kind words really mean a lot.

Hey Guy
touching story, very sad, I wonder how close we all are to just a slight chemical imbalance that causes things like this and OCD. Very sad.
Well you wrote a great song to bring attention to a disorder that not too many people probably know much about, great production love that intro Johnny cash riff, I know what you mean about Ed, he's a seasoned veteran for sure, always knows exactlty what a song needs, I've learned to listen to him. And of course he nailed his part. Very well written, excellent choice of instrumentation and your voice sounds great here, really captured the emotion of the song, well done!

I really appreciate the kind words. Ed and I have gotten quite close over the last year. The 3 of us should do a collab. I was thinkin about a song I wrote that would be perfect for your vocal. If you don't come back and read this then I'll approach you down the road.

Scott Carmichael said 2413 days ago (March 12th, 2011)
very strong
Excellent... a very strong song... you really conect the listener to the pathology... some great word pictures... great vocal and natural melodies... this is so good that I wouldn't rest until the drums find a natural space to sit in this song... I guess that's a nit-pic... It is the area that I always end up struggling the most with... everything else sounds so human, so the drums by contrast sound just the opposite... and they don't fall into the same space as the rest of the players

Since I have been here, whenever you stop for a listen you leave the most well thought out, tactful, constructive comments. Thank you, you are dead right I re did the drums a couple of times, and finally added the audio loop from Apple "Percussion combo" and made them barely passable. I wish I could do more than just string midi loops together. Thanks again for the insight.

Subjectivity Gone Wild
A very cool musical treatment for an unusual subject laced with a bit of irony within irony, given your tale of this song's protracted development. ;)

Overall, it's a very good song, with thoughtful, interesting lyrics. The vocal is perfect for the material. My only other observation is about the vanilla drum track. I think it may be dragging the tempo of this tune down. I would experiment with drum tracks with a more double-hit feel, or, perhaps, even try adding some conga drums to punctuate the rhythm. ;)

I see I'm late to the dance.

Full and lush production. Besides the tele, I also like the sound of the acoustic guitar here, as I have a hard time getting a good acoustic guitar sound. Your voice has one of those qualities that makes me think I've heard it somewhere else before (besides your other stuff). It's a good frontman voice and fits the style of your music pretty well. I could stand to hear it pushed forward more in the mix, but that's just personal preference, 'cuz I like to critique. Anyways, good post.

Something about this...
seems a little trippy. I'm not sure why. It feels psychedelic. Still loving it.

Hi Guy
Fantastic post - the playing and production are top qulaity. I get what you were saying about Ed's added guitar line - kind of provides some glue to keep it all nice and smooth. The subject matter is well handled in the lyric. I hope "A" does learn to see again.

The song art is fascinatingly creepy. Had me hooked before the song started streaming. I dig you register jumps in the vocals. The tracks is nicely balanced, well mixed. I think my ears wanted a bridge, a break of some sorts, cuz I felt like you were pulling back a bow and I kept waiting for the arrow to let fly. But the tracks is really well done.

Thank you
Over the last couple of years I have been listening to your music and following your comments here, and they have been an invaluable tutorial in both recording and songwriting. I understand what you are saying about this song. I was trying to find the missing piece, and I think I have it now thanks to you.
