Dirty your face

With longing and grace, God-given

Suffer her heart

And love her when your love goes unrequited

Where the cool winds blow

I must surely go

For my love calls me below to drag her

From the depths of my soul

When will I see her again?

The other side of friends

The darkened claws of death

The empty breath desire

Dirty your face

With longing and grace, God-given

Suffer her heart

And love her when your love goes unrequited

Restless in my speech

And ruthless in my teach

So vacant in my breach

I drive the dirt up her garden

Sorrow

She’ll never listen again

No other lovers to bend

Just rotten apples to eat

Just letter yellowed distant scorn

Dirty your face

With longing and grace, God-given

Suffer her heart

And love her when your love goes unrequited

Life just fades away

Purity just begs

Dust to dust, we’re wired into sadness

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

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

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

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you drown
You’ve traveled very far
Just to see you I’ll come around
When I’m down
All of those yesterdays
Coming around
No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you dream (on some versions, “scream”)
You traveled very far
You traveled far, like a star
And you are
All of those yesterdays
Coming around
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

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

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

Additional Info: From Zeitgeist track by track interview: "Billy had a sketch of that one that was just him at the organ at first. And I think I was the first cheerleader for that song. I thought the melody and the use of space was so compelling. Even though I play busily myself, I’m a sucker for a lot of space in songs.” Jimmy Chamberlin “I played it for Jimmy and he’s usually my BS meter, and he loved it. Then I played it for an ex-girlfriend, and she started crying, and it didn’t even have lyrics yet. So then we talked about getting an orchestra, but instead we got an old Emulator--the Art of Noise keyboard--and built the track around that.” Billy Corgan

When I was born I lost

When I was freed I fought

Now that I’m loved I’m caught

Between the rest and this tragic mess

An invited guest

Torn, broken and frayed

Oh don’t we face

War, sunshine and grace

Oh won’t you stay

For a while

We can fail in style

I can hold your smile

For a while

What was once new now gone

What was once praised now wrong

As they go, we can say we know

But what do we know

But warm sunshine and graves

Don’t we see

What’s bitter to taste

Torn, broken and frayed

Don’t we face

War, sunshine and graves

Won’t you stay

‘Cause I won’t tell

I won’t tell a soul

That I’m mad as hell

Torn, broken and frayed

I’m torn, broken and frayed

No, I’m cold, worn out and shamed

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

Right now’s the past

Rouse me soon

The end draws nigh

Who’s side are you on?

Your blood you cannot buy

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

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

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

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?

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

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."

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

I will keep you anyway

Every kicking of the drum

Headlights shoot north

The ends of earth off course

If you’ll love you’ll find

Certain truths left behind

A closing down of the gate

You are so fucked

Revolution crawls

All over you

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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

I’m never alone

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

The sun beaming, radiating

All the love we are creating

We are creating

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

Every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

I’m never alone
