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

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?

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

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

I’m in touch with you

I’m in touch with 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?

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

We’ll wander off through the dead of night
Past wastelands of shattered souls
Warm by my firelight
I peer into the darkness alone
As the Indian Summer of my remembrance
Settles on my bones
Cracked and weary, I ask for direction home
Home, let the word spill from my mouth
Love, love is everything I want
I’m one of many more to come
Love, love is everything I want
Crossroads outside of town
The heartbroken faces shine
The city lights so far and dull
Turning left I know it’s time
With an urgent wind upon my rolling heals
To carry me along
My face downcast, I turn to ruins past and home
Home, let the word spill from my mouth
Love, love is everything I want
I’m one of many more to come
Love, love is everything I want
We’ll wander off through the dead of night
Past terrors and broken homes
Wipe the sleep from under your eyes
Of riverbanks and catacombs
Sleep into the bee and the sea
I was to live this life alone
Lay down Caligula
Cry out, I know it’s time
Love is everything I want
Love is everything I want
Love is everything I want
Love is everything I want

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

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

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

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

Taking over, we’re taking over

Throw the weight up off your shoulders, now

That we can show our love

It’s almost over, it’s almost over

No more war and no more soldiers

To stand against his love

Away with all the troubles that you’ve made

Away with waiting for another day

Away

Look ma, the sun is shining on me

Impatient, in love, and aching to be

Could you believe in heaven

If heaven was all you had

Taking over, we’re taking over

Throw away your four leafed clovers

And stand beside this love

Away with everything you’ve grown to hate

Away with anything that holds you safe

Away

And every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

Every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

Every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

Look ma, the sun is shining on me

Taking my time to do as I please

Could you believe in heaven

If heaven was all you had

All the love we are creating

We are creating

And every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

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

You and me

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

Hold silent

You were my violence stuck

In my life

Just for the moment

And let me under you

So you can die

I was alive

I was alive

In my body

You’ll never find me

You’ll never pull me out

In my body

The lonely creatures

The lonely creatures scream

June’s offcast

Left hiding, I form the screams

Burned alive

Wasted sunsets

Haunting my torment

Right through my clothes

In my body

You’ll never find me

You’ll never pull me out

I was alive

I was alive

In my body

You’ll never find me

You’ll never pull me out

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

(Billy: yeah, vietnam.)

(James: you headin’ to vietnam?)

(Unknown: yes, I need to be at the co-op.)

(Unknown: thanks dude.)

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

And if I fall into you all

Will my rain cease and dissolve

Some come to harm, others to grace

So let my friends fly under these wings

We’re giving it up to the sun

We’re giving it up to the moon

We’re giving it up to the earth

Giving it up from our room

Know when there’s nowhere to run

Know when there’s not much to lose

Sometimes it seems so long

Since you had a chance to refuse

We built a fire

Winterlong

Transform to iron

Winterlong

I was the first one

I was the last one to be strong

And if I fall into you all

Will the silence shatter and stall

Some feel movement, others stand still

So let the moment become my will

We’re giving it up to the sun

We’re giving it up to the moon

We’re giving it up to the earth

Giving it up from our rooms

Know when there’s nowhere to run

Know when there’s not much to lose

So why does it take so long

To find out who is who

We built a fire

Winterlong

Transform to iron

Winterlong

I was the first one

I was the last one to be strong

We’re giving it up to the sun

Giving it up to the moon

We’re giving it up the the earth

Giving it up from your room

We’re giving it up to the sun

Giving it up to the moon

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

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
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

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

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

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

What is this writing in between us?
What is the question posed?
Where is this violence i sense creeping?
What is your secret code?
I wanna know!
Why are the pipers calling towards us?
Where are the makeshifts shown?
Why are you smiling daggers at me?
Do you know it’s far too cold…
It’s the song I sing.
It’s the song I sing.
I’m forming the tones
Smokerings around the square,
I’m telling the throne
There is a place you’ll explode
And I’m getting close…
To an answer,
To my questions
To myself
Notions are wrong,
What does a narcisist (sting?) you follow
When I’m laying low
Where must the cabins reap for nothing?
And must the depths of hell be neatly sewn?
I have to know…
Why are the crows crowing boldly?
I found there is a link in hell,
While the young men know not arising
What is the unknown key to your lost soul?
I got to know…
I race uptown,
Bleeding like some kind of bitch,
I’m down on my knees
Digging a new kinda ditch,
Grace don’t fit in words,
But no answers to my question…
It’s a song I sing,
It’s a song I sing,
Float to town…
(one two three),
I follow the town to let me common there (?)
The last nonsense(?) from your face,
A total witch
Must float upstream
While I soak in like the sweet dream,
What is this blood you drink like wine for?
Are you not still breaking in?
What does the face of death you cut say
When it comes to tuck you in?
It’s the song I sing…
It’s the song I sing,
It’s the song I sing,
Fighting for the spoils of madness
What are these sores you lick
That are ice cream?
You had the edge,
You had the past,
For an instance there,
Bracing for…
It’s the song I sing,
It’s the song I sing
I keep telling you,
I keep telling you,
I keep telling you,
I don’t want this song,
I keep telling you,
I keep telling you,
I don’t want this song,
It’s the song I sing

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

You’ll never need to hurry me

To be in love, to feel love

To feel love, to be in love

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
