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

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

To the center of the earth
Or anywhere god decides
Full of fever pulling forth
We hear our call as all
And to the center of the earth
As if written in
And dna is reaching out
To your frequency
I want to live
And don’t want to die
I want to live
I want to try
All in prayer
Prayer in all
All are scared
Scared of all
Black rooms are calling
To men in leather coats
White labs are cooking
Up the silver ghost
The glass migrates under
Her translucent skin
And all the spiders wonder
What we’ve got us in
All is you
You are all
All with you
You in all
I want to live
I don’t want to die
I want to live
I want to try
So, it’s all very obtuse
Because it’s all like, like, I don’t know
So, like, I started thinking
That everything I operate on
Is based on what I believe god was telling me to do
God could be my intuition or whatever
But I always assume
I always assume that the voice I hear is the voice of god
Then I started thinking
What if I’m insane
So I’m operating on the premise
That I’m hearing the voice of god
Or what I perceive to be god speaking to me
Or through me
But maybe I’m completely in…
So all my…
Demagoguery in my life about me thinking that my life has importance
My, my..
Thinking that my life has importance
My, my, my thought of it
And the fact that I believe that I’m following my intuition
Which in and of itself may be completely false
So then I started freaking out thinking…
Of itself may be completely false
And again this creature that believes that he’s acting upon
Heavenly intuition, but meanwhile he’s totally rampant
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
So beats the final coda
Of our vinyl storm
One more cherry cola
To lift up her dead arms
A dream of soft focus sunsets
Filters through the din
We are losing contact
As she dials it in
She can hear glass calling
Or is it someone that looks like him
She eyes TV reflection
And nods a knowing look
She says it doesn’t matter
She’d never liked her looks
I have seen a thousand fractures
I have seen everything
Cause knowing is its own answer
Love something in a book
There’s not much left to ponder
Not much left to cook
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders, oh

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

Twilight fades through blistered avalon

The sky’s cruel torch on aching autobahn

Into the uncertain divine

We scream into the last divide

You make me real

You make me real

Strong as I feel

You make me real

Sheila rides on crashing nightingale

Intake eyes leave passing vapor trails

With blushing brilliance alive

Because it’s time to arrive

You make me real

You make me real

Strong as I feel

You make me real

Lately I just can’t seem to believe

Discard my friends to change the scenery

It meant the world to hold a bruising faith

But now it’s just a matter of grace

A summer storm graces all of me

Highway warm sing silent poetry

I could bring you the light

And take you home into the night

You make me real / lately I just can’t seem to believe

You make me real / discard my friends to change the scenery

Strong as I feel / it meant the world to hold a bruising faith

You make me real / but now it’s just a matter of grace

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

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

Meant to be

Immutable

Impossible

It’s destiny

Pure lunacy

Incalculable

Inseparable

And for the last time

You’re everything that I want and asked for

You’re all that I dream

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love

Protected and the lover of

A pure soul

And beautiful

You

Don’t understand

Don’t feel me now

I will breath

For the both of us

Travel the world

Traverse the skies

Your home is here

Within my heart

And for the first time

I feel as though I am reborn in my mind

Recast as child and mystic sage

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love

For the first time

I’m telling how much I need and bleed for

Your every move and waking sound in my time

I’ll wrap my wrap my wire around your heart

And your mind

You’re mine forever now

Who wouldn’t be the one you love and live for

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love and die for

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

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

Additional Info:

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?

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

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

So old in my shoes

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

I know your wish, I hold it true

To hide the things that trouble you

Turn me on out of reach

Let me speak all my peace

Just believe what you keep

You’ll never need to hurry me

I fear that I am ordinary, just like everyone

To lie here and die among the sorrows

Adrift among the days

For everything I ever said

And everything I’ve ever done is gone and dead

As all things must surely have to end

And great loves will one day have to part

I know that I am meant for this world

My life has been extraordinary

Blessed and cursed and won

Time heals but I’m forever broken

By and by the way…

Have you ever heard the words

I’m singing in these song?

It’s for the girl I’ve loved all along

Can a taste of love be so wrong

As all things must surely have to end

And great loves will one day have to part

I know that I am meant for this world

And in my mind as I was floating

Far above the clouds

Some children laughed I’d fall for certain

For thinking that I’d last forever

But I knew exactly where I was

And I knew the meaning of it all

And I knew the the distance to the sun

And I knew the echo that is love

And I knew the secrets in your spires

And I knew the emptiness of youth

And I knew the solitude of heart

And I knew the murmurs of the soul

And the world is drawn into your hands

And the world is etched upon your heart

And the world so hard to understand

Is world you can’t live without

And I knew the silence of the world
