You killed him too, in the search for something beautiful
You let yourself go
And killed him 'cos it's beautiful to watch, him too
In the search for something beautiful
You let yourself go
And killed him 'cos it's beautiful to watch.

You're running circles in a sweat of fear
You've been spinning for years with your vain ideas and
The mirror tells you all you need to know
But you can't bear to look in
You say you believe in the acts that you practise
But somehow you had to stop
It's not important what's important to you any more.

[Chorus]
You killed him too, in the search for something beautiful
You let yourself go
And killed him 'cos it's beautiful to watch, him too
In the search for something beautiful
You let yourself go
And killed him 'cos it's beautiful to watch.

You are a forward-thinker, a moderniser in your own mind
You are a visionary, the world owes a debt to you
You say you believe in your loving forgiveness
But where was your mercy today?
It's not important what your reasons were any more.

[Chorus]

In all that you did, where was the reason?
Could reason disarm you?
Would it alarm you?
