"Beautiful" as written by Jesse Hasek, Brian Vodinh, Matt Wantland and Travis Wyrick....
Beauty over wisdom to fit in with their style
Your Cinderella story's for a price
Vanity's a business built to fleece the unique
Silicon and stars collide, the rest will fall in line

Just as beautiful as you are
It's so pitiful what you are
You should have seen this coming all along

Visually you're stimulating to my eyes
Your Cinderella syndrome's full of lies
Your insecurities are concealed by your pride
Pretty soon your ego will kill what's left inside

Just as beautiful as you are
It's so pitiful what you are
You should have seen this coming all along
It's so pitiful what you are
As beautiful as you are
You should have seen this coming all along

You're everything that's so typical
Maybe you're alone for a reason, you're the reason

It's so pitiful what you are, you should have seen this coming all along

Just as beautiful as you are
It's so pitiful what you are
You should have seen this coming all along
It's so pitiful what you are
As beautiful as you are
You should have seen this coming all along

    General CommentThis song is about all of the celebrities who live their lives acting so stupidly in front of paparazzi. It's also about the misconstrued priorities in our society, where celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are famous for nothing. They're beautiful, but pitiful at the same time.

    General CommentI think about my ex when i hear this song because she was a beautiful girl and her aditude just sucked. When you saw her you were stunned but when she opened her mouth she just killed it. Good song. 10 years is a great band!

    General CommentTo me, the song is about a good-looking girl who isn't worth being with. She's full of herself and stupid(or is just continually making the same mistakes) to the point that he, and everyone else, doesn't want to be with her.

    General CommentThis song is so badass. It looks like the new 10 Years album will cover the seven deadly sins. This song is about vanity. Can't wait till April.

    General CommentThe second to last stanza is wrong. It should be...

    "So pitiful what you are, should have seen this coming all along"

    This is a good song. It seems a little lighter then their previous album so far, but this is the only song i've heard and it's still good. Can't wait!

    General Commenti also think that this song is about someone that is beautiful on the outside but has insecurities and faults on the inside. but i also think that the person may have had plastic surgery in order to cover up her imperfections and the writer sees this as pitiful

    General CommentI think, this guy is in love with someone, and is seeing the faults in the girl and seeing them reflected in himself as well.

    His vanity is that he wants a beautiful love.

    Part of the song he's talking about his love, the other part he's talking about himself.

    General CommentThis song is about, as everyone else has stated, a girl that is caught up in the superficial bullshit that is, in my opinion, destroying this generation. There are so many girls my age that this song could describe. They are pretty to look at, but they have nothing to say. But The first part about vanity being a buisness to fleece the unique makes me think that the girl in the song once had a lot going for her, but she was insecure, so she stopped being herself, and tried to be the person that society wants her to be.
