"Beautiful Mind" as written by and Simon/salisbury Jones....
A beautiful mind or a beautiful body
I know which one I'm gonna end upon
You say you will but you never promised thoughts

A smile and a hand mix like water with sand
As far as you're concerned
A road and a sign I know which one catches my eyes

And I, thought I heard it for a while
Then it all came to me
Sometimes I just don't know I believe in

Don't you want to know when I suffer
It doesn't show
A smile and a hand mix like water with sand don't you know?

I was thinking about moving back home
I don't really need to live here
No no I didn't I could I'm sure I would if I knew that
I didn't I could I'm sure I would if I knew that

A smile and a hand mix like water with sand
As far as you're concerned
A beautiful mind or a beautiful body
I know which one, I'm gonna end upon end upon

    My InterpretationThis is my personal interpretation of this song

    "A beautiful mind or a beautiful body
    I know which one I'm gonna end upon"

    This basically just saying that in the end he will grow old and physically look ugly but his mind and soul will be beautiful.

    "You say you will but you never promised thoughts"
    Basically nothing really gets done.

    "A smile and a hand mix like water with sand
    As far as you're concerned"
    Basically pretending to be happy but he's really not.

    "A road and a sign I know which one catches my eyes"
    His goals and vision is what he's after. Distractions don't really matter to him... This could be a girl or people in general that have let him down.


    "And I, thought I heard it for a while
    Then it all came to me
    Sometimes I just don't know I believe in"

    Sometimes he's not sure what he wants in life.

    "Don't you want to know when I suffer
    It doesn't show
    A smile and a hand mix like water with sand don't you know?"

    Again, he is hurting inside but puts a smile so people think he's happy.



    "I was thinking about moving back home
    I don't really need to live here
    No no I didn't I could I'm sure I would if I knew that
    I didn't I could I'm sure I would if I knew that"

    He's tired of living where he's at... He feels out of place and really just wants to feel like he belongs.

    "A beautiful mind or a beautiful body
    I know which one, I'm gonna end upon end upon"

    In the end nothing will really matters.. . he'll die just like everyone else.

    My InterpretationThis is my exact definition of how acid sounds like. It's like a psychic force roaming around, being unable to explain. Kind of like a space travel, in some ways.

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song is that it is about the comedown of drugs, either pot, Ecstasy or acid. The whole song feels like your on a trip and it's ending fairly soon. It's beautiful guitar work from Nick McCabe he even went on to tell me this was his favorite song. This is what he said: "I really love Beautiful Mind. The three of us had that ready to go for the Forth tours, I think it's hard for a singer (Ashcroft) to go back to a place they've truly left behind though."
