Not a bad suggestion, but I don't imagine that performance analysis is very beautiful.
For some people beauty resides in nothingness, one might claim that a devotion to the impossible is an expression of pure beauty.
Most funeral doom lyrics I've read have dealt with wishing to resolve personal conflict, usually focalized from the perspective of emptiness and despair.
The music itself tends to be very minimalistic, but with tons of atmosphere.
The downside is that in order to perfect that kind of music, you usually need some serious stuff going on for inspiration.
