"Beautiful" as written by Miguel Jontel Pimentel, Mariah Carey, Nathan Perez, Brook Christian Davis and Mac Robinson....
Please, I don't know what you're saying
It all sounds like mud to me
There's a man here
I've seen his face
He's sure I'll recognize him and he's breathing all his hate on me
He binds my wrists and he throws me down

And I can't see

Wake me
I hope I'm dreaming
I am beautiful
I'm beautiful
Wake me.
There must be some mistake

No, I don't hear what I'm hearing
Fear you are my new best friend
Cause these wicked boys brought their pieces and their itchy fingers
And the panic crawls into my throat cause I turn my head and they're looking at me.

And I can't breathe

Save me I think I'm bleeding
I am beautiful
I'm beautiful
Save me
There must be some mistake

And I can't scream
I can't scream
I'm bleeding
I am beautiful
I'm beautiful
Save me
There must be some mistake
Save me
Look, I'm bleeding
I am beautiful
I'm beautiful
Save me
There must be some mistake

    General CommentI take it as a girl was abused by her lover and realized she deserves better, she knows she's "beautiful."

    General CommentYeah, Denial, definately! I kinda thought this was about some sort of sexual attack, and the girl thinking this can't be happening to her, she's too beautiful.

    General Comment"'Cause these wicked boys brought their pieces
    and their itchy fingers"

    To me, it's unquestionably about rape.

    I also don't think she believes she's beautiful. I read it as:

    "I'm beautiful? I'm beautiful?
    Wake me - there must be some mistake."

    General CommentIt's about a guy that was murdered during a hold-up. I believe the band knew this guy. Makes the song all the more terrifying yet poignant, eh?

    General CommentThis is such a disturbing and beautiful song. The way the lyrics portray the ultimate depiction of someone being held up, and the denial that person feels. no, this can't be happening to me, "there must be some mistake" You really feel what they're feeling. Tapping the Vein is a brilliant band! I love them!

    General Commenti used to listen to this song all the time back in 2001-2002, i recently got back from a deployment to iraq, my vehicle had hit a anti-tank mine and i escaped without a scratch, then 2 days later my vehicle was hit by 2 roadside bombs i escaped the first one just fine but 2 marines were injured 5 minutes afterwards i was about 10 meters from another roadside bomb that went off and me and 3 other marines where wounded, and when i heard this song when i got back i was litteraly paralyzed how it described everything so clear about what it is like to be in a situation like that, the denial like this cant be happening, the most powerful part is "save me i think im bleeding" the thought flashed threw my mind, this is indeed a very powerful song

    General Commentreally i think that this song about a woman like all being raped and it's just like what i'm beautiful no way. or like she's in a relationship that turns abusive.
    this song is more of a personal interpretation
