Tired eyes

Closed for days

There’s no regret

‘Cause there’s no place

I don’t know

What I believe

But if I feel safe

What do I need

A home

A home

A home

Revolution

Revolution

Revolution blues

What will they do

Revolution

Revolution

Revolution blues

What will they do to me

What will they do to me

What will they do to me

What will they do to me

Dulcet tongues

Whisper fast

The future yearns

Right now’s the past

Rouse me soon

The end draws nigh

Who’s side are you on?

Your blood you cannot buy

Revolution

Revolution

Revolution blues

What will they do

Revolution

Revolution

Revolution blues

What will they do to you

Well I

I feel alright

So tonight

I got to ask you why

Why deny it

It’s no surprise

I’ve got to survive

Freedom shines the light ahead

I’ll lead the last charge to bed

I said my last rights

I don’t have to run scared no more

Fight

I wanna fight

I wanna fight a revolution

Tonight

I wanna fight

I wanna fight a revolution

Tonight

At the light

At the light

Do you wanna watch me die

Let me be something good

Let me prove something real like I should

Let me embrace every single living thing

Let me be every single moment I ever misunderstood

Also known as Orchid. From Zeitgeist track by track interview:

“I realized listening to ‘Orchid’ that it’s a distant commentary on what happened to the bands of the Nineties. The song even has a bit of an homage to Alice in Chains in the harmonies. Alice in Chains is one band that I appreciate so much more now than when we were all in the same competitive streak. I also thought a lot about Kurt Cobain and what we’d all been through as a collective unit and the battle-scarred feeling of that. I wondered about what our contribution was as a generation. I’m close to Courtney Love. I know the negative ramifications of that time. I see what she goes through, and the ramifications on Francis Bean. Everybody can talk about the Kurt on a t-shirt, but they’re still real people . So in a way, that song is a cost assessment.” Billy Corgan

“We’re great believers in continuing the search musically until the last possible minute looking for something better than what you have, and that song is one that benefited.” Jimmy Chamberlin


If life is my witness
Love is my song
If nothing means no one
Then blank, I belong
If fear conquers easy
I can lead on
Milk from the flower
Blood from the dawn
So here we are
Upon your stage
The laughs we shared
The dreams we saved
Bleeding the orchid
We’re bleeding the orchid
Bleeding the orchid
Blessed my weakness
Blessed my wrongs
As hate forms the sequence
Of one by one
As freedoms die easy
We suffrage the want
There’s clouds in my shower
Ghosts in my arms
Youth is where you are
Faith some sinner’s child
We’re bleeding the orchid
We’re bleeding the orchid
Bleeding the orchid
Gilded art this silent march past triumph thru alarm
So thus charmed
Does this will stand for much?
But heart’s untouched by heart’s unloved
Bleeding the orchid
Here we are
Upon your stage
The love we share
The dreams we’ll save
They’re bleeding the orchid
They’re bleeding the orchid
They’re bleeding the orchid
They’re bleeding the orchid

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow’s much too long
I’ll burn my eyes out
Before I get out
I wanted more
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore
Of saving face
Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long
I’ll tear my heart out
Before I get out
Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings
Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you
Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known

The world is a vampire, sent to drain
Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
And what do I get, for my pain
Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
Even though I know-i suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Now I’m naked, nothing but an animal
But can you fake it, for just one more show
And what do you want, I want to change
And what have you got
When you feel the same
Even though I know-i suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me there’s no other one
Jesus was an only son
Tell me I’m the chosen one
Jesus was an only son for you
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
And I still believe that I cannot be saved

Additional Info: From 5:27-30, "listen for the police car go by" (Billy Corgan on Pisces Iscariot liner notes). "I met this girl in Dallas when we were on tour with the chili peppa's and that was where I got the idea for the name for the song because when she said her name I thought wow, what a great title for a song. 2 1/4 years later I run into this same girl at a party and I say did you hear that song we recorded using your name, Starla? And she said, no my name is Darla but hey Starla, Darla whatever it doesn't matter, so there you go. Never trust a girl who ends up with well I can't say." (Billy Corgan on Pisces Iscariot liner notes).

I’m in here

Please take me home

Starla dear, I’m all alone

When you can’t decide what’s on your mind, it’s clear

I’m near

Starla dear

To disappear takes some more time

Starla dear, you’re on my mind

Soon, soon I’ll be leaving

Soon, soon I’ll be leaving

I hear all you’re saying

I hear all you’re failing

I’m in here

Please take me home

Starla dear, I’m all alone

When you can’t decide what’s on your mind, it’s clear

I’m here

Serve yourself

No one else can do for you like you

No one else fails like me

In my eyes I burn alive

Fly like a bird

No more words just you and I

Love is good and love is mine

Love is drunk all the time

You’re gonna walk on home

You’re gonna walk alone

You’re gonna walk so far

Love is a sentimental heart

Life is a sentimental way

Spy the fragile heart so cursed

As he walks across this earth

I’m disconnected by your smile

Disconnect a million miles

And what you promised me

I hope will set you free

I’m disconnected by your smile

And all I gave to you is lost

And all you took from me is lost

Black wings carry me so high

Up to meet you in the sky

I’m disconnected by your smile

Disconnect a million miles

And what you promised me

I hope will set you free

I’m disconnected by your smile

Wishing you were real to me

Wishing I could make believe

I’ll take my secrets to the grave

Safely held beneath the waves

Always knew I couldn’t save

Always knew I couldn’t save you

Faith lies in
The ways of sin
I chased the charmed
But I don’t want them anymore
And in their eyes I was alive
A fool’s disguise
Take me away from you
Shame my tongue
Fat with promise all along
But when I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I’d ever been
When you decide
That your life is a prize
Renew and revive
It’s alright honey
It’s alright, yeah
Happiness will make you wonder
Will I feel OK?
It scares the disenchanted
Far away
Yeah I want something new
But what am I supposed to do about you
Yeah I love you, it’s true
Life’s a bummer
When you’re a hummer
Life’s a drag
Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free
Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free
Do you feel
Love is real?

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “That’s a sexy song made by two men living in a house alone together for four or five months in Scottsdale. There needed to be some sexiness somewhere.” Jimmy Chamberlin “That song was another one that I brought to Arizona with me. And right away it sounded like ‘95 Pumpkins, like it could have been right off of the Mellon Collie record. I feel sorry for Jimmy because he has to hear me complain about such things. And we went back to what Flood taught us and tried the song some other ways. One day we just changed the beat, and it just made the song.” Billy Corgan

They say that life ain’t easy

They’ll say your life’s a crime

Destroy up all good reason

How I’m alive

They’ll say that nothing matters

Not even your will to survive

Of course I love you baby

‘Cause I’m alive

Yes, I’m alive

Whenever I call you out

Whenever I draw you round

Whenever is here and now

That’s the way my love is

That’s the way I care

You should call on me baby

I’m always there for you

Yeah, I’m always there for you

They’ll say you’ll lose your nerve soon

To claim identity

Disgrace our sacred promise

With no belief

Oh, how I believe in you

That’s the way my love is, for you

That’s the way my love is, for you!

I feel a coming age now

I feel a dawn in me

A certain sun keeps rising

On my belief in you

That’s the way my love is

That’s the way i care

You should call on me baby

‘Cause I’m always there for you

That’s the way my love is

That’s the way I care

You should call on me baby

Yeah, I’m always there for you

From Zeitgeist track by track interview:

“I had this mellow guitar riff that was very simple--almost a ballad-- and we kept messing around with it. And one day, we thought, ‘What if we played it really loud.’ And that was it. Suddenly it transformed into this beastly thing.” Billy Corgan

“We’ve learned a lot of lessons over the years about not taking songs at face value when they emerge. I think that’s something Flood taught us along the way. ‘Doomsday Clock’ started off almost a folk calypso number and it turned into this . . . Apocalypso. We’re believers that a good song is a good song whether it’s played on an electric guitar or a zither.” Jimmy Chamberlin


Is everyone afraid?
Is everyone ashamed?
They’re running towards their holes, to find out
Apocalyptic means are lost among our dead
A message to our friends to get out
There’s wages on this fear
Oh so clear
Depends on what you’ll pay to hear
They’re bound to kill us all
In whitewashed halls
Their jackals lick their paws
Please don’t stop
It’s lonely at the top
These lonely days
When will they ever stop?
This doomsday clock ticking in my heart
Not broken
I love life every day
In each and every way
Kafka would be proud, to find out
I’m certain of the end
It’s the means that has me spooked
It takes an unknown truth to get out
I’m guessing I’m born free, silly me
I was meant to beg from my knees
Please don’t stop
It’s lonely at the top
These lonely days
When will they ever stop?
This doomsday clock ticking in my heart
These lonely days when will they ever stop?
We gotta dig in, gas masks on
Wait in the sunshine, all bug-eyed
If this is living?
Sakes alive!
Well then they can’t win
No one survives
Is everyone afraid?
You should be ashamed
Apocalyptic screams
Mean nothing to the dead
Kissing that ‘ol sun
To know all there is
Come on, last call
You should want it all
Ah, it’s lonely at the top
These lonely days
When will they ever stop
This doomsday clock ticking in my heart
These lonely days
When will they ever stop
This ticking in my heart
Is everyone afraid?

Unleash the armageddon
So all the children go to heaven
I sit by quiet still
With their pictures on my eyes
You’ll draw the guns you’re given
Write down the words as written
And never disturb the presence
Of resurrection crutch
And it’s about time
It’s about drawing near
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Descend the darkened stairways
Make hate with plastic playmates
And fire out remaining traces
Of your self esteem
Mainline the deepest secrets
Lick clean the dirty fingers
I am a stranger to you
As you are to yourself
And it’s about time
It’s about fear
Blue skies bring tears
Don’t you want me (don’t want you)
As I awake the city sight
We’ll watch the seasons die
Blue skies bring tears
Take me inside your body
Blue skies bring tears
Cover me with your soul
Blue skies bring tears
To the darkest recess
Blue skies bring tears
Is where I wish to go
Blue skies bring tears
You are the sweetest flower
Blue skies bring tears
That I have ever devoured
Blue skies bring tears
I ask for nothing given
Blue skies bring tears
For nothing in return
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears

It’s time to wake up for good
I can’t help you though I should
For god and country we’ll fight
For god and country we’ll die

My soul is so alive
Lay down your arms to me
Lay down your arms For god and country
You can’t deny god and country
We’re fighting for our lives
You can’t deny god and country
Our souls are so aligned
In this time of god and country
We’ll take you on our side

This is the song I’ve been singing my whole life

I’ve been waiting like a knife

To cut open your heart

And bleed my soul to you

I did it all for you

You and you and you and you

This is the sound I’ve been making my whole life

I’ve been waiting for this night

To clear up all the talk

Although I’m selfish to a fault

Is it selfish, it’s you I want

You, I did it all for you

This love will stand as long as you

There’s really no excuse

I did it all for you

These are the tears I’ve been crying my whole life

Like an ocean of desire

I’m reaching through the noise

Across the dusk of time

Within the lilting lights

I am singing out to you

Speak to me in a language I can hear
Humour me before I have to go
Deep in thought I forgive everyone
As the cluttered streets greet me once again
I know I can’t be late, supper’s waiting on the table
Tomorrow’s just an excuse away
So I pull my collar up and face the cold, on my own
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet
At the blasphemy in my old jangly walk
Steeple guide me to my heart and home
The sun is out and up and down again
I know I’ll make it, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you
And for a moment I lose myself
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world
I’ve journeyed here and there and back again
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends
Mysteries not ready to reveal
Sympathies I’m ready to return
I’ll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
Tomorrow’s just an excuse
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you

Bleed in your own light
Dream of your own life
I miss me
I miss everything I’ll never be
And on, and on
I torch my soul to show
The world that I am pure
Deep inside my heart
No more lies
A crown of horns
An image formed deformed
The mark I’ve borne
A mark of scorn to you
Consume my love, devour my hate
Only powers my escape
The moon is out, the stars invite
I think I’ll leave tonight
So soon I’ll find myself alone
To relax and fade away
Do you know what’s coming down
Do you know I couldn’t stay free?
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free free
Free of those voices inside me
I shall be free

Time is never time at all

You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth

And our lives are forever changed

We will never be the same

The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe

That life can change, that you’re not stuck in vain

We’re not the same, we’re different tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

And you know you’re never sure

But you’re sure you could be right

If you held yourself up to the light

And the embers never fade in your city by the lake

The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe

In the resolute urgency of now

And if you believe there’s not a tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

We’ll crucify the insincere tonight

We’ll make things right, we’ll feel it all tonight

We’ll find a way to offer up the night tonight

The indescribable moments of your life tonight

The impossible is possible tonight

Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

I don’t want to fight

Every single night

Everything I want is in your eyes

You and me go back

To places I dont know to care

The spoils of all I got were left for scraps

Don’t let me say this

But you’re no worse than me

It’s crazy

We are the real

If real ever was

And just because

We are the real

They feel we have enough

We are the real

I want to be there when you’re happy

I want to love you when you’re sad

Cant stand the morning rain?

Get out i’ll take your place then

Can’t stand the blazing sun?

To sing for

We are the real

We are the ruin

Of every living soul

We are surreal

Cause someone gave us up

Don’t break the oath

I want to love you when you’re happy

Don’t break this oath

I want to be there when youre sad

Freeze-frame the pouring rain

We are the real

As real as any ghost

So easy now

We are the real

In ever living soul

Oh dont they know?

Can’t stand the blazing sun?

Can’t stand the morning rain?

I wanted ‘Starz’ to sound like that, but of course then Roy blew it up into some other thing. Yes, I am aware that there was a band Starz back then.

My reflection, dirty mirror

There’s no connection to myself

I’m your lover, I’m your zero

I’m the face in your dreams of glass

So save your prayers

For when we’re really gonna need ’em

Throw out your cares and fly

Wanna go for a ride?

She’s the one for me

She’s all I really need

Cause she’s the one for me

Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness

And cleanliness is godliness, and god is empty just like me

Intoxicated with the madness, I’m in love with my sadness

Bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms

The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth

I never let on, that I was on a sinking ship

I never let on that I was down

You blame yourself, for what you can’t ignore

You blame yourself for wanting more

She’s the one for me

She’s all I really need

She’s the one for me

She’s my one and only

We were about to pack up and I said, ‘Let’s try to write one more song,’ and Jimmy said ‘Okay.’ So that song comes from that little bit of extra effort. I’ve heard Dylan talk about writing songs like being a gamble and a hot streak. Once you’re on the roll, you have to keep going.” Billy Corgan “We always say it’s the extra ten percent that makes a hundred percent difference in what we do.

We really have a love-hate relationship with the riff songs.” Billy Corgan “The real problem is after that great riff, you need another great riff.” Jimmy Chamberlin

They’re gonna take, it’s all the same

They cannot wait, their love spells hate

I wanna love

I wanna love

I’m pushing back

I’m serpentine

I’m pushing back

Lord save me

With need

Lord walk me home

C’mon let’s go

C’mon, c’mon let’s go

Tears were once my only way back home

Someone weeps and instantly I’m thrown

C’mon let’s go

C’mon let’s go

Go

C’mon let’s go

If I were alive
If I were real
Would you survive
What would you feel
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
As sentimental as our broken dreams
Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die to save your soul
Let me die, let me die rock and roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go, let me go rock and roll
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
We’re the metal, in their metal machines
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
If I were dead
Would my records sell
Could you even tell
Is it just as well
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
It’s elemental, to all the rust it brings
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die and save my soul
Let me go, let me go rock and roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go, let me die rock and roll
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
We’re the metal, in their droning schemes
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Will I survive
Is it up to me
Could you understand
That it’s not yours to keep
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

Disarm you with a smile
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
Ooh, the years burn
I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
What’s a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you
Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one who’s left alone
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn
I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my voice
What’s a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you

Shakedown 1979
Cool kids never have the time
On a live wire
Right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we’d never see an end to it all
And I don’t even care
To shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed
Into the earth below
Double cross the vacant and the bored
They’re not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slippin’ dues
Down to see
That we don’t even care
As restless as we are
We feel the pull
In the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement
Lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we’d go
Beneath the sound of hope
Justine never knew the rules
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made
I know you better than you fake it
To see that we don’t even care
To shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed
Into the earth below
The street heats the urgency of now (written: sound)
As you can see there’s no one around

Should I know all we’re missing

What’s to stop what they’re missing

To feel love, to be in love

All around

Anyone can hold a promise

Not everyone can feel honored

To be in love, to feel love

All around

Turn me on, hear me speak

Let me be what I need

You’re enough for me

Many times while you sleep

I’m dreaming of what to keep

To know your wish, hold it true

To slay the things that trouble you

Turn me on, out of reach

Listen here, feel me

Just believe, just believe

You’ll see

To feel love, to be in love

All around

Hold the truth if you want it

If you don’t, I won’t flaunt it

To feel love, to be in love

All around

When you’re young you can promise

Anything that you wanted

To be in love, to feel love all around

Turn me on, let me speak

From my heart, I receive

Plain happiness, just happiness

You and me

To feel love, to be in love

All around

To be in love, to feel love

All around

To feel love, to be in love

All around

To be in love, to feel love

Around

I know your wish, I hold it true

(Feel love around)

To hide the things that trouble you

(Feel love around)

Turn me on out of reach

(Feel love around)

Let me speak all my peace

(Feel love around)

Just believe what you keep

(Feel love around)

You’ll never need to hurry me

(Feel love around)

To be in love, to feel love

All around

To feel love, to be in love

All around

To be in love, to feel love

All around

To feel love, to be in love

All around

To be in love, to feel love

All around

Freak out
And give in
Doesn’t matter what you believe in
Stay cool
And be somebody’s fool this year
‘Cause they know
Who is righteous, What is bold
So I’m told
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Hipsters unite
Come align for the big fight to rock for you
But beware
All those angels with their wings glued on
‘Cause deep down
We are frightened and we’re scared
If you don’t stare
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Tell me all of your secrets
Cannot help but believe this is true
Tell me all of your secrets
I know, I know, I know,
Should have listened when I was told
Who wants honey
As long as there is some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out

I’m never coming back
I’m never giving in
I’ll never be the shine in your spit
I disconnect the act
I disconnect the dots
I disconnect the me in me
And you’re mistaken, it’s you that’s faking
Living and breathing and dying too
This message is for anyone who dares to hear a fool
You can’t bring me back, you can’t bring me back
Cause I give it all back to you
Thru sacred alleys, the living wrecks
Wreak their havoc upon this world
The disenchanted, the romantics,
The body and face and soul of you is gone down that deep black hole
Destroy the mind-destroy the body-but you cannot destroy the heart
And you, you make me so I need to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don’t need you love to disconnect
To runaround kids in get-go cars
With Vaseline afterbirths and neon coughs
Galaxies full of nobodies
Giving us the farewell runarounds
I took a virgin Mary ax to his sweet baby Jane,
Lost my innocence to a no good girl,
Scratch my face with anvil hands,
And coil my tongue around a bumblebee mouth
And I give it all back to you
No way, I don’t need it, I don’t need your love to disconnect
And you make it, so real, I don’t need your love to disconnect
No way to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don’t need your love to disconnect
No way to disconnect
