"Beauty Is The Beast" as written by Ola Salo, Mikael Bjoern-ingel Jepsson, Lars Henrik Ljungberg, Sylvester David Olof Schlegel and Martin Karl Axen Persson....
Men have made the a-bombs
Men have made guns
The dreaded torture chambers
And the barbed wire fence
But of all the awful things that
Men did invent
The idea of ideal beauty is worth
The most contempt
And tell me who's a killer?
If we all consider
That emotion runs as deep as flesh
And the idea of ideals
That say what beauty is
Has sentenced so many to death

Beauty is the beast
You better believe it
You're wasting your whole life
If you're trying to achieve it

Beauty is the beast
-And you better believe it
Beauty is the beast
Beauty is the beast
Beauty is the beast

Now, who can tell me how
And where to begin
In a world who thinks of ugly
As the cardinal sin
And constantly is talking about the beauty within
But looks up in the cellar everything that is grim

And tell me who's a killer?
If we all consider
That emotion runs as deep as flesh
And the idea of ideals
That say what beauty is
Has sentenced so many to death

Beauty is the beast
Beauty like a barbed wire fence
Beauty is the beast
Beauty like a barbed wire fence

So, if beauty is your friend
You'd better go deceive it
Beauty is the beast, you better believe it
You're wasting your whole life
If you're trying to achieve it
Beauty is the beast
And you better believe it
Beauty is the beast
Beauty is the beast
Beauty is the beast

    General CommentA great song from one of my favorite albums of all time. The line "In a world who thinks of ugly as the cardinal sin" sums up the current views that western society holds quite well- you only need to turn on the TV for a few moments to see that.
