She is searching for the beauty that she knows is within her, and she has high hopes that one day she will see herself the same way that others do.
4. Cold and Ugly \sTool
My interpretation is that it’s like a girl who’s maybe pretty on the outside but hides a lot of who she really is on the inside.
A person should learn to wade into the dark parts of themselves, including all of the aspects of themselves that they refuse to accept and are afraid of, just as many of Tool’s songs encourage them to do.
When this girl makes an attempt to look within herself, she experiences anxiety because she is afraid of discovering the true nature of who she is.
I believe that almost everyone goes through some form of abuse at some point in their life, whether it be emotional or physical abuse, abuse at the hands of another person, or even at that person’s own hands.
It’s just the way the world is constructed, and because of that, we have to learn how to bring the darkness that we bury so deeply and so and so often in our life.
It is necessary for this person to reveal all of this information before she can be considered truly beautiful (the terms “cold and ugly” refer to the pristine state of her inner self).
