"Beautiful" as written by and Morgan J./hornsby Rose....
200 miles per hour
That's how fast I seem to go

With the weight of the world on my
shoulders
Slow down. come and catch us all

Wait!
Slow Down!
Take!
Slow Down!
Why can't you help me?
Slow Down!

Feel
When I'm in doubt

I need something beautiful
To fill the space we've taken up
I need something to feel real
Again before I go numb

Downward spiral. a kaleidoscope view
Is what you're seeing saying so jaded
The picture I drew

Come again. Come Again. Come Again!
Wait!
Take!
Wait!
Why can't you help me?

Wait!
Take!
Wait!
Take!

Feel when I'm in doubt
Feel when I'm in doubt

I need something beautiful
To fill the space we've taken up
I need something to feel real
Again before I go numb

Are you alive?

Are you alive?
I'm alive
When I'm in doubt
I'm alive

    General Commentcan't belive no-one has commented on this song yet, its one of their best off Animosity. I think it's about someone (the band) feeling so much pressure to keep going and keep making good music with no stopping. I think this is a reference to their earlier days when they had shitty managment, and it is about needing to take a break so they can 'feel real again'. i dunno thats just my interpretation

    General CommentI also agree that this is one of Sevendust's best songs on the Animosity album, I think you have a point with what you pointed out...but I think it can apply to more of a general note...I think in a certain way, the idea behind the lyrics of this song can be linked to "stinkfist" by tool on their "Aenima" album...basically, you need something real, something new...you need to feel real...the only difference in this one, Lajon is saying that he needs something "beautiful"....something to catch his eyes, the entire world looks bland, boring...tasteless...he needs that one entitiy with color to come back to him...so he can know that he's still alive...Maynard is saying he need something more intense every time to feel alive...

    General Commentswayer i think u might be right. But to me its a bf/gf thing. She left, and he needs something beautiful, a girl, to fill the empty space b4 he forgets what all of that relationships stuff feels like.

    General CommentI feel i went through an extremely similar break up as the singer as many of the songs are very similar to the situation at hand. The singer was moving so fast in thinking ahead and make plans with a girl (picture he drew). Maybe he was going so fast to make things happen that she was left behind. She got scared of loving and jumping with him so they grew apart. He wants something beautiful to fill her place. He wants it to be her but it's just not working out. She can't help him because she either doesn't know how to handle him or is too weak to be there for him. That's why they aren't together but they still love eachother. Love isn't enough by it self. It's a really sad situation...
