Beautiful people got their beautiful lives got their
Beautiful husbands got their beautiful wives got their
Beautiful bankers got their beautiful lawyers
All things bright and beautiful
The beautiful people are sent to destroy us

Beautiful people got their beautiful kids got their
Beautiful schools where the beautiful other half live got their
Beautiful futures in their beautiful professions
All things bright and beautiful
The beautiful people got the money for the lessons

I'm living in purgatory, I know what purgatory is
This ain't no sanctuary, this ain't no way to live
You gotta have a sense of humor
You gotta know how to laugh at it
'Cos, I'm living in purgatory

An' anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is
Anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is

Beautiful people got their beautiful clothes, yeah their
Beautiful mansions down their beautiful country roads got their
Beautiful doctors in their beautiful surgeries
All things bright and beautiful
The beautiful people like a little privacy

I'm living in purgatory, I know what purgatory is
This ain't no sanctuary, this ain't no way to live
You gotta have a sense of humor
You gotta know how to laugh at it
'Cos, I'm living in purgatory

An' anything's better than this
Yes, it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is
I said, anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is

Anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is
I said, anything's better than this

Anything better than
Anything better than
Anything better than

Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is

Beautiful losers on their beautiful estates got their
Beautiful job centers on the beautiful welfare wait and wait
And beautiful dreamers out of their beautiful skulls
All things are bright and beautiful
As long as they're beautiful, people stay beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

I'm living in purgatory, I know what purgatory is
This ain't no sanctuary, this ain't no way to live
You gotta have a sense of humor
You gotta know how to laugh at it
I'm living in purgatory

An' anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is
Anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is

Anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is
Anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is

Anything's better than this
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is
Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is

I said, anything's better
Anything better than
Anything better than
Anything better than
