"The Beautiful People" is a bonus track of the Soulfly album Conquer, released in 2008. This is the final track of the special edition of the album and is a cover of the hit single by Marilyn Manson, released in 1996 for their album Antichrist Superstar. The Soulfly version lasts a bit longer than the Marilyn Manson version with the addition of thrashy outro somewhat resembling "Warmageddon" verses.

The lyrics was copied from the original by Brian Warner (a.k.a. Marilyn Manson). However there are few changes to the lyrics for the Soulfly version – the final verse where it repeatedly chants 'the beautiful people' was removed, the first four numbers in Portuguese line was added as suggested by Max Cavalera, and 'hey' in the now final verse was replaced with 'fuck'. The lyrics is about the racial discrimination that people are beautiful.

"The Beautiful People" by Soulfly was released months before Conquer even began recording. It was recorded in spring 2007 at Undercity Studios in Hollywood and composed by Jeordie White. The song was released in June 2007 for the Kerrang! compilation Higher Voltage!: Another Brief History of Rock.

Lyrics Edit

I don't want you and I don't need you
Don't bother to resist, 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
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 it's hard to be clean

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

Capitalism 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 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, qua

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