Lyrics

   And 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 for the trees
   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
   Capitalism has made it this way,
   Old-fashioned fascism will take it away

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

   The beautiful people
   The beautiful people
