Beautiful is the first song in the first season of Gaia Guardians and the first song overall. It is sung in the episode 'No Choice'. It constantly switches between Cato Academy, Delta Cascade High and Goldwood High before settling on Goldwood High. It shows the Sam, Brooklyn, Audrey, Kent and Gilda's lives in school and is sung by them and their fellow students and teachers. It is a parody of ‘Beautiful’, a song from the musical, Heathers: the Musical, performed by Barrett Wilbert Weed (who plays Veronica in the play) and Company. Sections were taken out of the song as the creator figured it would make the song to long.

Lyrics Edit

BROOKLYN [Spoken]:

September 3rd, 2018. Dear Diary: I believe I'm a good person.

Ya know, I think there's good in everyone, but here we are first day of school.

I look around at all these kids I've known all my life and I ask myself: What happened?

KIDS:

Nut-job! Spaz! Weirdo! Bug-eyes! Poser! Cry-baby!

[Switch to Cato Academy]

AUDREY:

We were so tiny, happy and shiny, playing tag and getting chased.

KIDS:

Nut-job! Snake! Loser! Thief!

AUDREY:

Singing and clapping,

laughing and napping,

baking cookies, eating paste.

KIDS:

Useless! Stuck-up! Hunchback!

AUDREY:

Then we got bigger.

That was the trigger,

Like the Huns invading Rome –

AUDREY [Spoken]:

Sorry!

[Switch to Goldwood High]

SAM:

Welcome to my school,

This ain't no high school:

This is the Thunderdome.

Hold your breath

And count the days,

We’re graduating soon.

KIDS:

Death-breath!

SAM:

College will be paradise

If I'm not dead by June!

But I know, I know, life can be beautiful.

I pray, I pray for a better way.

If we changed back then,

We could change again.

We can be beautiful...

[Switch to Delta Cascade High; A girl knocks another onto the floor.]

OTHER GIRL [Spoken]:

Ow!

BROOKLYN:

Just not today.

BROOKLYN [Spoken]:

Hey, are you okay?

OTHER GIRL [Spoken]:

Get away, nerd.

KIDS:

Liar! Crow! Demon! Traitor! Traitor! Traitor!

[Switch to Goldwood High]

SAM:

Things will get better

‘Soon as my letter

Comes from Harvard, Duke, or Brown.

Wake from this coma,

Take my diploma,

Then I can blow this town.

Dream of my ivy-covered walls

And smoky French cafes...

[Sam jostles Max Charles.]

Max [Spoken]:

Watch it!

SAM:

Fight the urge to strike a match and send this dump ablaze!

[Switch to Delta Cascade High; Ray upends Brooklyn’s lunch tray.]

RAY [Spoken]:

Ooooops.

BROOKLYN [Spoken]:

Ray Porter. Third year as linebacker.

And eighth year of smacking lunch trays and being a huge jerk.

RAY [Spoken]:

What did you say to me nerd?

BROOKLYN [Spoken; hurt]:

... Nothing.

[Switch to Cato Academy]

AUDREY & KIDS:

But I know, I know, I know...

Life can be beautiful.

I pray, I pray, I pray

For a better way.

We were kind before;

we can be kind once more.

We can be beautiful...

[Kent approaches.]

AUDREY [Spoken]:

Agh!... Hey Kent.

KENT [Spoken]:

Hey.

[Kent helps Audrey pick up her tray.]

AUDREY [Spoken]:

Kent Bainbridge. My best, first and only friend.

KENT [Spoken]:

We on for movie night?

AUDREY [Spoken]:

Yeah, you're on Jiffy Pop detail.

KENT [Spoken]:

I rented "Big Hero 6."

AUDREY [Spoken]:

Again? Don't you have it memorized by now?

KENT [Spoken]:

What can I say? I'm a sucker for action.

SUNNY [Spoken]:

Hey, Dimwit! Heard you gotta 30 in your math test.

[Selena Skye knocks the tray from Kent's hands.]

AUDREY [Spoken]:

Sunny Skye. And her older sister, Selena Skye.

The school bullies.

[Furious, to Sunny and Selena] Hey! Pick that up right now!

SUNNY [Spoken]:

I'm sorry, Andrew, are you actually talking to me?

AUDREY [Spoken]:

Yes, I am. I wanna know what gives you the right to pick on my friend.

You're high school has-beens waiting to happen. Your grades aren’t much better.

SELENA [Spoken]:

... You have a zit right there...

[Randomly switching schools]

AUDREY, KENT, BROOKLYN & KIDS [Variously]:

Dear diary: why....

Why do they hate me?

Why don't I fight back?

Why do I act like such a creep? (AUDREY & KENT: Why...)

Why won't he date me?

Why did I hit him?

Why do I cry myself to sleep? (BROOKLYN: Why...)

Somebody hug me!

Somebody fix me!

Somebody save me!

Send me a sign, God!

Give me some hope here!

Something to live for!

[End on Goldwood High; Gilda enters.]

KIDS:

Ah!... Gilda, Gilda, Oh Gilda!

SAM [Spoken]:

Then there's Gilda Harrison. She floats above it all.

KIDS:

[Repeating.] I love Gilda, Gilda, Oh Gilda.

SAM [Spoken]:

Why, exactly? Head cheerleader. Her parents are loaded – her mom’s a fashion designer…

KIDS:

I hate Gilda, Gilda, Oh Gilda!

SAM [Spoken]:

Clean record. Takes over the yearbook. Always at the top of her classes. Teacher’s pet…

KIDS:

I want Gilda, Gilda, and Gilda!

SAM [Spoken]:

Everyone thinks she’s just the perfect person.

KIDS:

I need Gilda, Gilda, and Gilda...

SAM [Spoken]:

She is a saint, according to the teachers.

She is solid Teflon - never bothered, never harassed.

I would give anything to be like that.

BOY:

I'd like to be her boyfriend.

KIDS:

That would be beautiful...

GIRL:

If I sat at her table, guys would notice me.

KIDS:

So beautiful...

[Switch to Cato Academy; Kent looks at Sunny and Selena and whispers to Audrey]

KENT:

I'd like them to be nicer.

KIDS:

That would be beautiful...

SUNNY:

Out of my way geek!

[Switch to Delta Cascade High]

GEEK:

I don't want any trouble –

RAY:

You're gonna die at 3pm!

REPUBLICANETTE & NEW WAVE GIRL:

Don't you dare touch me! Get away, pervert!

GEEK:

What'd I ever do to them?

KIDS:

Who could survive this?

I can't escape this!

I think I'm dying!

[Switch to Goldwood High]

MRS. LEE:

So, how's that with Gilda?

[Gilda enters again...]

KIDS:

Whoa. Gilda, Gilda, Gilda...

NEW WAVE GIRL:

Oh, Gilda!

KIDS:

Gilda, Gilda, Gilda...

MRS. LEE & COACH:

What a gal!

KIDS:

Gilda, Gilda, Gilda...

SAM [Bitterly]:

Gilda…

KIDS:

Gilda! Gilda! Gilda!

GILDA & KIDS:

And ya know,

Ya know, ya know

Life can be beautiful.

You hope, you dream, you pray,

And you get your way!

Ask me how it feels

Looking like hell on wheels...

My God, it's beautiful!

And when you're beautiful...

It's a beautiful freaking day!

KIDS:

Gilda...Gilda!

Gilda! Gilda!

Gilda...Gilda!

GILDA:

Gilda! Gilda!

KIDS:

Gilda! Gilda!
