The Beautiful People

And I don’t want you and I don’t need you Don’t bother to resist, or I’ll beat you It’s not your fault that you’re always wrong The weak ones are there to justify the strong The beautiful people, the beautiful people It’s all relative to the size of your steeple You can’t see the forest for the trees You can’t smell your own shit on your knees

There’s no time to discriminate Hate every motherfucker That’s in your way

Hey you, what do you see? Something beautiful or something free? Hey, you, are you trying to be mean? If you live with apes man, it’s hard to be clean

The worms will live in every host It’s hard to pick which one they eat most The horrible people, the horrible people It’s as anatomic as the size of your steeple Capitalism has made it this way Old-fashioned fascism will take it away

Hey you, what do you see? Something beautiful or something free? Hey, you, are you trying to be mean? If you live with apes man, it’s hard to be clean

There’s no time to discriminate Hate every motherfucker That’s in your way The beautiful people, the beautiful people (aahh) The beautiful people, the beautiful people (aahh) The beautiful people, the beautiful people (aahh) The beautiful people, the beautiful people (aahh)

Hey you, what do you see? Something beautiful or something free? Hey, you, are you trying to be mean? If you live with apes man, it’s hard to be clean Hey you, what do you see? Something beautiful or something free? Hey, you, are you trying to be mean? If you live with apes man, it’s hard to be clean

The beautiful people, the beautiful people The beautiful people, the beautiful people The beautiful people, the beautiful people The beautiful people, the beautiful people
