Pretty

Pretty is what is seen
not what is shown
someone beautiful can be mean
Pretty on the outside but the inside isn't known

Don't try to hide the feeling,
That you have towards me.
I know you think I'm pretty,
But it's all a lie you see.

There are dark secrets behind my mask,
My fake face covers it all.
Until you get tricky Uglies,
Who end up ruining it all.

New Pretty Towns party spires sparkle,
The dim lights of Ugliville fall to dark.
The night has begun.

Special

Special isn't an operation
it's an attitude
it's those who divide a nation
decided by what you say and do

Super
Powerful
Electrifying
Cold
Icy
Agile
Loose
(loose as in turned loose or independent)

I'm not good enough
I'm not what they want
But let me tell you what
I know who I am
~ Outcast, Kerrie Roberts

For one moment
I wish you'd hold your stage
With no feelings at all
Open minded
I'm sure I used to be so free

The lights of new pretty town shine
The party spires lit for the long night.
What hides behind the the beutiful mask?
But of course the specials who complete their tasks.

Tricky uglies go out to play.
Specials enjoy the game.
The uglies escape to the smoke.
The specials follow close.
