What is ugliness? Venture into the darkness with this alternative rock single laced with latin and german expressionist influences.

Reflecting on “Ugly”, Dante Mazzetti offers a clear explanation, "The word ugly has such an immense amount of power. People react strongly to it - especially when it refers to a woman. That in itself says something. I purposefully wrote ‘Ugly’ to be able to be interpreted in different ways. I like to let the listener make the decision on how they want to receive the meaning. Some people hear it as being about a man who is sponging off of an aesthetically unattractive woman. I like to think of it as a song about a woman who is beautiful on the outside, yet has an ugly soul. I hope to inspire the listener to question the meaning of ugliness and to search for more in my songs than the surface understanding of the lyrics."

Dante Mazzetti - vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, upright bass, drums
Peter Kuan - trumpet, piano

Lyrics

[Chorus]
Hey
Have you seen
A very ugly girl
Well, I’m with her

Hey
Do you know me
Well, I’m kind of white
I’m kind of bitter

I’m really just kind of misunderstood
I love your sister but I know she’d never treat me good

[Repeat Chorus]

Well we danced in the moonlight
when she told me goodbye
Such an evil mind
oh yeah

And the world just spits on you like a dog
And if you want something from it
You better hold on to that hog

[Repeat Chorus]

And the world just spits on you like a dog
If you want something from it
You better hold on to that hog

[Repeat Chorus]
