Coheed And Cambria - True Ugly Lyrics




Oh, when the lights go out
Abandon reason, listen to them shout
Divine, these monsters of flesh and bone
Oh, they make hate look so easy, no kind

Oh, show me your true ugly
The stranger you move, the sweeter you become
Now show me the good you've done
Show me the animal
We are the animal

Oh, how the times run out
(Everybody down on the ground, now, everybody down, down, down, down)
Burn yourself here in the heat of the sun
Pray it comes undone
Scream your loudest, no one's coming

Oh, show me your true ugly
The stranger you move, the sweeter you become
Now show me the good you've done
Who raised these animals?
(Down, down, down, down, down, down)
(Down, down, down, down, down)
(Bang, bang, bang, bang)

Broken migrant, knife through heel
Sing your praise so Hell can hear
Where did you come from?
The strange we walk, the touch we feel
Could you find a way to love us all?
Don't wake up
Show me stolen love
Everything, I need
Take away from me humility
Over and over I fuss, but I can't seem to sleep as they cut
Oh, no, you can't hurt me

Break, break, breaking up
Break, break, break, follow me
Break, break, breaking up
Break, break, break, follow me
Break, break, breaking up
Break, break, break, follow me
Break, break, breaking up
Break, break, break, follow me
Break, break, breaking up
Break, break, break, follow me
Break, break, breaking up
Break, break, can you hear me?
Break, break, breaking up
Break, break, break, follow me
Break, break, breaking up
Can, can, can you hear me?

Oh, show me your true ugly
The stranger you move, the sweeter you become
Now show me the good you've done (The good you've done)
(The good you've done)
Oh, show me your true ugly
The stranger you move, the sweeter you become
Now show me the good you've done
Show me the animal
You fucking animal
Don't feed us the animals
'Cause we're not done with you
There's no good you've done
Oh, show me your true ugly
The stranger you move, the sweeter you become
Now show me the good you've done
Show me the animal

    The stranger you move, the sweeter you become
    Now show me the good you've done
    Show me the animal

    We are the animal

    Oh, how the times run out
    Everybody down on the ground, yeah, everybody down, down, down, down
    Burn yourself here in the heat of the sun
    And pray it comes undone
    Scream your loudest, no one's coming

    Oh, show me your true ugly
    The stranger you move, the sweeter you become

  2. Thor Odinson

    they should make a movie about this album staring elan page and idris elba

  3. ChokinDolphins

    I seen them last month and they were absolutely fantastic! Can’t wait to see them again in a few more months. c:

  4. Edwin Mora

    Claudio you the fucking man

  5. The Crimson Drummer

    I've tried to give this album a chance so many times and I just can't get into it. They used to be my favorite band but they're not making stuff I like any more. They've also gotten stale live as they play the same 10 songs every single time (getting so tired of welcome home as the closer). These guys were such a huge part of my music taste growing up so its hard to let them go.

  6. Ike Jon-Ubabuco

    Best song on the album

  7. AJOFCALIFORNIA

    This song is a masterpiece, thank you Claudio and company.

  8. Wolf Knight Rage

    This is a song that would fit in a fast paced boss fight in a final fantasy game or in an anime. I fucking love this song!

  9. Alfred Akamine

    Lyrics is so damn masterpiece

  10. Joseph Cribari

    Sounds like every song on every album theyve done since silent earth

  11. Al Pucci

    I don’t know if the band sees these comments but two things:
    1. I dig the good Apollo 2 vibe from this song but;
    2. I’m dying for that good Apollo 1 vibe. 12 min long songs with monster solos. Just give me GUITAR SOLOS

    WASD NC

    If they're taking requests, can a brother get some more time changes? This album fucking rocks tough, great job everyone!

  12. Brandon Love

    Am I the only one that hears "EVERYBODY DOWN NOW, HIT THE DECK" on the last repeat? The lyrics say it's just "DOWN DOWN DOWN" but I hear it clear as day.

  13. Fred

    Holy fuck this song is gritty I like it.

  14. Pituca Slv

    2:17 best part

  15. ThunderMuhffin

    YOU FUCKING ANIMALLL 🖤

  16. steve

    Ok, after reading the book. I'm a little lost in comparison to the album. Toys and Black Sunday do make sense to me in the story though I believe it's about Crane looking back on the failed heist that led them to the Dark Sentencer. Queen of the Dark is Nia learning about all the back alley systems of the Dark Sentencer long before Crane and Otto arrive. True Ugly, is this Otto and the warden talking or about Sam and the zero level inmates escaping? Pavilion is a given. Is Night Time Walkers about the higher beings called "windows" and revealing Vaxis to Crane and Nia? The Gutter is mentioned all the time in the story so I felt that should have been earlier in the album. Is All on Fire about the explosion in the Pavilion? It Walks Among Us then has to be the fight between Crane and Otto. Then Old Flames and Lucky Stars continue the story for the next chapter.

    0nandout0flin3

    Wait, there's a book for this already? What's it called, i gotta read it...

  17. Bareno91

    Fun Fact: When Claudio sings "You fucking animal!", he's actually singing about me.

  18. Angel G

    Yes Coheed, yes. You’ve accomplished the meld of past, present, and everything to come. Don’t ever quit.

  19. Leonardo Furtado

    DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN

  20. PhilosoPat

    Glad I got the Red Smoke Vinyl! Love the album! I just needed a Coheed vinyl.

  21. Outlaw Shogun

    3:22 - totally 2113 vibes. This ALbum is KILLER....

  22. Michael McMullen

    Try and listen to this song and not want to mosh

  23. Delerium89

    1:17 - 1:26 gives me chills, so awesome!

  24. neal wroble

    Josh kills the drums every track

    Daniel Daniels

    not on the tracks they don't use, though

    neal wroble

    I have a good feeling even on the ones they don't use it's the same

    Daniel Daniels

    I'm talking about 'takes', are you talking about songs lolol?

    neal wroble

    Oh lol, that makes more sense. I agree for sure

  25. Comrade Crusader

    That opening riff is so good

  26. tyler stark

    Unheavenly creatures is amazing album thank u

  27. Kyle Carr

  30. Leonardo Furtado

  31. Cameron Lesesne

    1:10-1:37 is godly 🔥🔥

  33. Manuel Figueredo

    Amazing song !!!

  34. PhilosoPat

    Breee breee breeekin uuupp! Bree bree breeek enuufff. Breee breee follow me!

  35. BrittanyDelirium

    I feel like this song would have been better right after Toys, like it is in this playlist. Lol. I love Queen and Black Sunday but damn that flows nice

    Matthew Broussard

    BrittanyDelirium genius.

    Delerium89

    Oh yea especially with the sound at the end of toys, sounds like its leading right into this song and I always think its coming up after haha

  36. Bravo Gaming

    Anyone else think the Writer is corrupting/talking to Colossus in this?

    Josh Giglio

    I have been wondering if the writer will be a major part of the story or not... The way i have looked at album is Vaxis telling the story of his parents and there lives before he is born and the major struggles they have to face before he is born. Maybe the next album could be him as a boy and about the family on the run and so forth this album 4 and probably 5 will be events that are from a current situation being played out.... I don't know lol but that's my thoughts... Maybe Vaxis will be a second crowing and they have to protect him until adulthood and I'm so hoping they're at least some kind of relation to Coheed and Cambria... I trailed off lol but I believe its him telling the story because of the album intro when he says and it's ends with there son Vaxis... IDK lol

    Matthew Broussard

    Josh Giglio This comment wins.

  37. tenk senoirb

    sounds like here we are juggernaut..?

    BearTheGrudge

    @Daniel Daniels if you were nodding out after NWFT you are in no way qualified to name anything classic

    Daniel Daniels

    @BearTheGrudge I have my own backstory, there, friend, but I accept your assertion..... I love all Coheed, they're our classic rock

    Daniel Daniels

    @BearTheGrudge I have listened to NWFT a lot this year though, and I appreciate your calling me out on that... my own backstory is a thing but NWFT is incredible, eh? I've been listening to the 4 willing well tracks, lately

    BearTheGrudge

    Daniel Daniels you have ascended my son. Step into rocktopia and be welcomed with open arms

  52. Ryan the GT Falcon

    This is some song I love best of all, like if you agree.
