"Beautiful Horses" as written by and Jordan Blilie Mark Gajadhar....
Ride! Ride! Ride! Ride! Ride! Ride!
Ride the crippled horse
Ride the broken mare
Ride the jaundice buck
Ride the dead Pegasus

You're so fucked up, you're a fucking mess
Ride the nauseous horse
Ride the broken mare
Ride the bony nag
Ride the tattered pony

You're so fucked up, you're a fucking mess

Manes in your mouth, hooves on your chest
From the country club, girl
To the crypt now, girl
Saddle up now, girl

Climb into the television
Stick your horrible nose into every sitcom
Into the vile game show host's
Cockpit mouth and down his throat (C'mon pony, demand your rights)
Jump over jungles cooking in napalm (C'mon pony, demand your rights)
Leap over nations shaved by carpet bombs
Into the burning treasury and set the heart attack children free
C'mon pony, demand your rights!
C'mon pony, demand your rights!

Prance into the halls of Congress, vomit into the speakers lap
Gallop into your romance novels, dance atop heavy pectorals

Ride! Ride!

You're so fucked up, you're a fucking mess
Trash can saddle
Ride in the show pony parade
And collapse
And come in fucking last

    General CommentSeems like the fact we all just spend too much time indulging within television.
    The television is almost taking control of us, and it's almost mind eroding.

    General Commenti think its more about politics rather than television. but maybe television incorporates into it.

    General CommentTelevision and politics are inseparable nowadays.

    The girl in this song is just living this dumb vicarious life, it's totally empty, it's not hers, and before she knows it she's just exhausted and a total failure because she's lived all the greatest moments of her life through a television.

    General CommentThe last verse
    "You're so fucked up, you're a fucking mess.
    Trash can saddle
    ride in the show pony parade
    and collapse
    and come in fucking last."
    It seems a lot like the horse (symbolizing human kind?) have hopes and dreams, some try their hardest for them to be crushed. Maybe it has something to do with that. Fighting for your rights maybe.

    General CommentI think this song is about how our nation is corrupt... but then again that's what most of their songs are about.

    General Commenti'm almost completely sure that this song is about bush.

    horses may represent a texan theme and the country club represents wealth/republicans.

    the president has also made a strangely large amount of primetime tv speeches and "sticks his nose" into the sitcoms, game shows etc. that everyone is watching.

    General CommentWell the whole stick your nose into the sitcom, the game show host and jump over jungles in napalm, or as i perceive it the girls is so interested in her fake world of sitcoms and game shows, she skips over the news, and current events, like war in other nations. I know i do this and im sure a lot of you guys do it too. I think driftwoodx, you have a good point but i think you are putting to much into it.

    General CommentAlso someone said on another thread, that the blood brothers have lyrics, but also when theyre sung they sound like another lyric. Double meanings. I don't know if anyone eles thought at the begining of this song instead of ride, ride, they were saying WHITE LIES, which fits into the story well, seeing that the sitcoms and fictitious shows are lies that don't seem to bother anyone, but yet they cause a lot of problems with youth today. Like kids reenacting cartoons, and other shows, or girls trying to be like the girls on the OC, there just little lies, but they have bigger consequences than originally thought... Im a shitty speller and write real fast without checking my shit, so hopefully this sounds alright... My favorite song off crimes.
