"The Beautiful People (Marilyn Manson)" as written by Ronald Fair, Nicole Prascovia Scherzinger, Brian Hugh Warner, Jeordie White, Esther Dean, Larry Jr. Summerville, Melvin Watson, Tommy Lee James, Stefanie J. Ridel and Laura Pergolizzi....
I don't want you and I don't need you
Don't bother to resist, or I'll beat you
It's not your fault that you're always wrong
The weak ones are there to justify the strong

The beautiful people, the beautiful people
It's all relative to the size of your steeple
You can't see the forest from the trees
And you can't smell your own shit on your knees

There's no time to discriminate
Hate every motherfucker
That's in your way

Hey you, what do you see
Something beautiful, something free
Hey you, are you trying to be mean
If you live with apes, man, it's hard to be clean

The worms will live in every host
It's hard to pick which one they eat most
The horrible people, the horrible people
It's as anatomic as the size of your steeple

Capitalist pigs has made it this way
Old-fashioned fascism
Will take it away

Hey you, what do you see
Something beautiful, something free
Hey you, are you trying to be mean
If you live with apes, man, it's hard to be clean

There's no time to discriminate
Hate every motherfucker
That's in your way

The beautiful people, the beautiful people
The beautiful people, the beautiful people
The beautiful people, the beautiful people
The beautiful people, the beautiful people

Um, dois, tres

Hey you, what do you see
Something beautiful, something free
Hey you, are you trying to be mean
If you live with apes, man, it's hard to be clean

Hey you, what do you see
Something beautiful, something free
Fuck you, are you trying to be mean
If you live with apes, man, it's hard to be clean

    My Interpretationpeople take the lyrics far far too litrally.
    maybe hes not talking about religion, like when hes talking about the size of your steeple, look between the lines hes talking about the vein ideals, how big your penis is for steeple. and how if you dont fit into sosciety and how they want to cahnge you so you look like all the other people. you cant see the forest from the trees, or you cant see the better stuff from your vantage point, and talking about the capitalist pigs and old fastiond facishum made us all the same, schools make us look the same, law makes it impossible to wear things for one reason or another, living with the apes, we are descended from apes and some people still act like apes and its hard to stay clean when you looking after old or diabled people with barely any money and genral life, its also hard to stay clean from *sin*. and if you listen to the way hes singing it, its like hes shying away, like he is shying away from steryotypes and what people think of as ideal.
