Beautiful World Lyrics - Rage Against The Machine
Review The Song (7)
It's a beautiful world we live in
A sweet romantic place
Beautiful people everywhere
The way they show they care makes me want to say
It's a beautiful world
Oh what a beautiful world
It's a wonderful time to be here
It's nice to be alive
Wonderful people everywhere
The way they comb their hair makes me want to say
It's a wonderful place
Oh what a wonderful place
For you, for you, for you, for you, for you, for you, for you, not me

Depression | Reviewer: RM | 11/8/12
I understand where everyone is coming from with the poor/rich idea.
Might I suggest that this could also be a song that has to do with depression? For one with clinical depression, it might be easy to see how so many things can be beautiful and admire others' ability to feel that but not feel it yourself. I say this from experience.
That's how I related to this song.
Great song | Reviewer: James Dennis | 11/1/10
I'd have to 110% agree with Jay about the song being sarcastic saying how the Rich live their easy ignorant life when the poor and opressed go unnoticed.
I'd also have to say that ricky6 was right and the song is a Devo cover, but I do admire Rage's version more.
Sigh... | Reviewer: Solo | 11/26/07
Clearly, as 'lol' has noticed, he is saying how unfair the world is, and that only rich ass people have it good. He does not say "for you" out of the good of his health. Rage are a band who have always said how unfair shit is...they arent about to change it for one song..
isnt this a devo song?? | Reviewer: ricky6 | 6/11/07
I do believe this is a devo cover. Pardon my ignorance if perhaps its a cover of a cover of a cover.
lol | Reviewer: Jay | 5/13/07
You guys obviously missed the point of this song. The song is sarcastic, he's singing about how the world is beautiful for people in better positions in life, the corrupt people in the world are living in a wonderful world but all the people who have to live on the streets and have no money are living in hell.. That's why the final line of the song is "It's a beautiful world for you, for you, not me."
wow. | Reviewer: Eli Cooke | 3/18/07
This song is amazing, the same lyrical message that RATM gives, in a different style. This song just further proves this bands skill in music.
a beautiful song.. | Reviewer: tasha russell | 10/2/04
this song is truly amazing. the lyrics are so wonderful that when i put it on, i just close my eyes and try to imagine what the lyrics are describing. but sometimes its hard because then the images of war and injustice fill my mind. Then i think of how Mumia Abu-Jamal is sitting in his death row jail cell and wondering when it will end. but the song in question is so wonderful that i cant even find the perfect word to describe it. just beautiful, like the world he sings of.
