Additional Info: The studiotrack samples the rocket launcher explosion from an id Software's game called Doom. This sound effect points to the relationship between Doom and the Smashing Pumpkins in the "SPISPOPD" (an abbreviation for Smashing Pumpkins Into Small Piles Of Putrid Debris) joke, dating from December 1993. The Doom explosion, mentioned in the liner notes of MCIS, can be heard at the following times: 1:20 / 1:55 / 2:29 / 3:01 / 3:44.

Candy cane walks down

To build a bonfire, to break my fall

My baby, my sweet thing

Just maybe we could lose ourselves this time

King of the horseflies, dark prince of death

His tragic forces are heaven sent

In sweet things, in a lovers breath

In knowing this was meant to be the last

A go-go-kids, a go-go-style

A suck suck kiss, a suck suck smile

As always, in young need

A veiled promise to never die

On dead highways, her black beauties roam

For june angels, so far from home

For a love lost, a faded picture

To tread lightning, to ink the lavender skies

So get on the bomb

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:

“This was one of the songs we had earmarked for Roy Thomas Baker to produce. As we later told Roy, we had heard all these stories about him being completely insane which turned out not to be true. He’s one of the most hard-working, aware and brilliant people we’ve ever worked with and we couldn’t wait to hear what he did with that song.” Billy Corgan

“For me that track is all about Roy–the way he produced, that drum sound. Roy doesn’t produce songs; he produces moments. We were constantly trying our best to put a smile on Roy’s face.” Jimmy Chamberlin


Shot down I stood
Withstood my neighborhood
I got it wrong
But I could
Follow love lest I learn
It’s light
To bring the light
I fought with all my might, with light
Oh bring the light
Light, bring the light
I never felt so good and right
But tonight you’ll never need another sound
Oh, bring the light
Bring the light to me
Here and gone oh I trust
You’d spit upon my dust
And mix my ash with your blood
A son of god you know you must arrive
In the light
Bring the light, let’s bring the light
Light, oh bring the light
Light, bring the light
It’s yours not mine
If you just want to survive
Go grab a glimpse of any star in heaven’s high
I never felt so real and loved and alive
No shadows follow me unsung
In the light, bring the light to me
A flower song, clear and bright
Is it wrong, in neon white?
To insist you are mine
Standing dumb in the light
Bring the light
Oh, bring the light
Bring the light!
Light, bring the light
I never felt so real and right and alive
Don’t let them steal from you what’s yours by right
Light, bring the light
You know there comes a place and time
You can’t deny
With every movement shadows cast and align
Bring the light, bring the light
Bring the light let’s bring the light
Light, bring the light

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “We were about to break for Christmas at the end of ‘05, and it was sort of the last day at school, musically. 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. And that song is one of my favorites.” Jimmy Chamberlin

All hands on deck

Setting sail to get wrecked off course

You make what you want of me

I will keep you anyway

Let’s fill these hours and kill desire

Let’s fill these hours and kill desire

I’m in touch with you

Let’s kill these hours and fill desire

Every turn is torture thought

Every kicking of the drum

I’ve seen the film

I know the place

I’m never lost

There’s just one way across

I’m never lost

Headlights shoot north

The ends of earth off course

Of course

If you think just right

If you’ll love you’ll find

Certain truths left behind

All this is that once forgot

A closing down of the gate

But oh these hours

I lost my place

I’m never lost

There’s just one way

There’s no disgrace in failing me

Let’s kill these hours and fill desire

I’m in touch with you

Let’s kill these hours and fill desire

It’s in blood

I suppose

Breaking jars

I’m no good

As the prodigal son

And I know that you’re mesmerized

You had a vision, made these laws

And sanitized, are we above desires

I miss him so

You are so fucked

It has begun

Revolution crawls

All over you

I was listening

You light up the sky

And scrape out your skull

Your lovely face

Will never be claimed thrice

And we’re so unlikely to

Upon my wrists I bear the cross

My losses mount as I climb across the home

Of my own soul

I’ll claim my prize

I don’t exist

I am divine

A ghost with eyes

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

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “Billy bought this guitar from this guy from Paris (James Trussart) who makes steel guitars and he brought a couple examples of his work to our rehearsal space. Billy grabbed one and plugged in into his amp and immediately started playing the riff from ‘Tarantula’ and the song was written pretty much on the spot.” Jimmy Chamberlin “That’s our nod to the Scorpions, and UFO--a loving nod to the hard rock bands of that era.” Billy Corgan

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

‘Cause someone gave us up

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?

Then close your eyes you’ll see

The angel dust

I dont want to be

Anything believed

A million watts of sound can’t compare

Come along you’ll see the world

The pulse ripples, the crowd unfurls

The current starts to flow and then you’re on

Oh it’s white hot soul they want

To sing for

We are the real

If real ever was

And just because

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?

Oh get out i’ll take your place again

I dont want to be alone

I dont want to be alone at all

If it’s a white hot soul they want

Then a black heart they’ll get

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “I originally wanted this song to sound sort of as if it were from that weird period from 1972-1974 when bands started going metal like Judas Priest but a lot of it still sounded poppy like the Sweet. 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. Now I’m going to have to buy their stuff.” Billy Corgan “That’s Roy being Roy--as only he can.” Jimmy Chamberlin

Born of love and cast in light

Don’t you know we cannot die

We are stars

We are

We are stars

We are

We are stars

We are

The stars above, stars of grace

Shining down what’s left of face

You hurt so bad

This knowing, this fallacy

I want so much

To follow as I lead

For love I keep

Silent I weep

Dead suns rule dead air

But heaven is everywhere

Stars…

Torn from god and flung towards night

Don’t you want what I can’t fight

We are stars

We are

We are stars

We are

We are stars

We are

The stars that shine, stars that bleed

Silver seeking destiny

So follow please

This hurts so much

This knowing carries me

We want so bad

We forget we are free

Spirit smile on

Deep black diamond

So rise the lost toys

Island of white noise

And purple haze

We are starz

We are starz

We are starz

What hurts so much

Is knowing we are free!

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

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."

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

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

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

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
And I still believe that I cannot be saved

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

Is it something someone said?
Was it something someone said?
Yesterday the sky was you
And I still feel the same
Nothing left for me to do
And I still feel the same
I wish, I wish I could fly
I wish, I wish I could lie
I will, I will try
I will, I will
Goodbye

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: “It started off as this weird little shuffle thing. We were arguing back and forth in November of ‘05 whether we should have a shuffle on the record. Billy wanted a shuffle. So it became a search for a new way to do a shuffle. We were also listening to Fela, all these 14-minute Nigerian jams and watching documentaries about him. So we went down this road of seeing how power can come from repetition.” Jimmy Chamberlin “In Pumpkins logic, if you’re going to make people wait for six minutes for the payoff, the money shot better be good. Ultimately, this became the musical statement of the album. The drum take is one of Jimmy’s crowning achievements. It’s worth the price of admission. Lyrically, the song reflects the decision I made when we were in Scottsdale to stop watching all network or cable news. I noticed the effect that had on me–I stopped being afraid. In general, I’m not afraid of getting on the stage in front of 60,000 people, so why should I be afraid of a plane crashing into my house? I was trying to wrap my head around the way we’re being force-fed a level of paranoia. It’s a personal reflection on what it all means. The ‘revolution’ in the lyrics isn’t the revolution of picking up a gun. That’s never worked, and it never will work. Jesus was right.” Billy Corgan

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

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

Last chance to make believe in always and all it seems

Train wrecks hide underneath your umbrella

Set the frame destiny on this first name soliloquy

Tired symphonies play downward

Let me give the world to you my love

Let me give the world to you my love

Let me show you what I’m thinking of

Let me give the world to you my love

So far

So far

So far

Lovers form dead excuse

And blur the line with soul abuse

My lonesome lines just have no use around here

New skin may hold you in

But the old skin still turns us on

Flicker fades the nitrate dawn to wear

Let me give the world to you my love

Let me show you what I’m thinking of

Times are hard and we’re the last in line

‘Cause in my grief I’d forgotten what was mine

No I wouldn’t change a thing

No I, no

No I wouldn’t change a thing about the way you are

The distance here, the speed so far

So far

So far

So far

Let me give the world to you my love

Let me give the world to you my love

Let me give the world to you

Let me give the world to you

Let me give the world to you

Let me give the world to you

Let me give the world to you my love

So far

So far

So far

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
