"Ugly" as written by and Dennis/stevens Wolfe....
Are you ugly?
A liar like me?
A user, a lost soul?
Someone you don't know?
Money, it's no cure
A sickness so pure
Are you like me?
Are you ugly?

We are dirt
We are alone
You know we're far from ?sober?
We are fake
We are afraid
You know it's far from over
We are dirt
We are alone
You know we're far from ?sober?
Look closer
Are you like me?
Are you ugly?

Turn a blind eye
Why do I deny?
Medicate me
So I die happy
A strain of cancer
Chokes the answers
Are you like me?
A liar like me?

We are dirt
We are alone
You know we're far from ?sober?
We are fake
We are afraid
You know it's far from over
We are dirt
We are alone
You know we're far from ?sober?
Look closer
Are you like me?
Are you ugly?

I don't care
You don't care
I do know
You're angry
You don't care
I don't care
Who are you?
Just like me?
Am I you?
You are me
I do know
You're angry
You don't care
I don't care
Who are you?
Like me?

We are dirt
We are alone
You know we're far from ?sober?
We are fake
We are afraid
You know it's far from over
We are dirt
We are alone
You know we're far from ?sober?
Look closer
Are you like me?
Are you ugly?

    General Commenti pretty much agree with everyone on this one... i think it could be more talking just about him tho, like hes describing how hes feeling to us, he feels depressed and all those thing he says.. a liar, dirt, fake, afraid, alone. he talks about being on medication, prob anti-depressants, and that he uses beer or w/e to get away from it "you know i'm far from sober".

    Oh and i think it might be "A user of a lost soul" ... but im not sure.

    General CommentI don't want to sound like an asshole, but I cannot believe that no one got the true meaning of this song! Mainly because the lyrics got messed up. "We are far from SOBER" is one of the most crucial lines!!

    This song is talking about drug addiction. The singer is a drug addict, and he looks deep into his world of drugs and drinking and sees how ugly it is. To see how everyone is either in denial (turn a blind eye, why do I deny?), depressed (medicate me so I die happy), or the other things that this song said. It's pretty self-explanatory.

    General CommentThe song is about someone feeling ugly and depressed searching for a soul that feels the same way to share anguish with.

    General CommentThis band is for real and i telling all of you to get there cd they are so much better then all those gimmick bands out there.........and this song if it only caught on more could be this decades "smiles like teen spirit"... Such a good meaning and everyone should listen and take it for what it is and its a reality check.
    Any ways pick up Head for the Doors by the Exies

    General Commenti met these guys in lock haven, PA when they opened for everclear. they signed their first CD and some stickers for me and i got to talk to them. i feel really happy for them that they've gone on to release a second album and have an even bigger hit than off their first one. these guys are going places for sure. seems to me like their not done climbing.
