DJ talking for 42 seconds: "Smashing Pumpkins. Hey gang, are ya out there? Is everybody out there? And the band? See, I don't think their mikes are… Yeah, 1 second. Ehmm… Let's see, can you guys hear me? Yeah of course you can hear me. Of course you can hear me. (Billy: Check!) Ah, there we are! Hey everybody! (Billy: Hey.) Hey everybody! Alright, we got the Smashing Pumpkins, and you guys locked down all your equipment and we've got a very live show that's happening right now. Hey, the stage is all yours. This is the Smashing Pumpkins on the WZRD Chicago."

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don’t forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin, severin awaits you there
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears
Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
Severin, severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now plead for me
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears
Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Severin, your servant comes in bells, please don’t forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

I'll break someone, somewhere

To show how big I am

You know I'm not sorry

I'll take everything

I wouldn't give you

The time of day

You were my only

What can I say?

Not alone, now

'Cause I'm not alone

You repeat me deceiver

To show me the way

I wouldn't give you away

Away

I wouldn't give you

The time of day

You were my only

What can I say?

'Cause I'm not alone

I've been here before

And I don't know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I'm alone without you

Heading for the floor

Turning back unless I'm sure

Heading for the floor

And something tells me I'm alone without you

You take

My eternity alone, alone

I've been here before

And I don't know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I'm alone without you

Heading back, down before

I don't know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I'm alone without you

To believe

And I beg

To see

And I beg

(?)

My eternity alone, alone

My eternity, alone

And I fail, …

My eternity alone, alone

And I fail, ...

My eternity alone, alone

My eternity, alone, alone

Tried to tell her who I really am

But I'm not so sure that I really can

Well, you've got to know, I don't understand

Well, you've got to know who I really am

Give me one more chance

As a child, I once had a dream

My mother spoke something down to me

She said, "son, you must walk upon your knees

Down the road, headed for the east"

Give me one more chance

Give me one more chance

If I had a way to go, I'd gather up my throwing stone

Tried to tell her who I really am

But I'm not so sure that I really can

Well, you've got to know I don't understand

'Cause I'm not so sure who I really am

If I had a way to go, I'd gather up my throwing stone

If I had a way to go, I'd gather up my throwing stone

Additional Info: Cover of Neil Young.

I wanna live with a cinnamon girl

I can be happy the rest of my life

With a cinnamon girl

A dreamer of pictures, I run in the night

You see us together, chasin' the moonlight

My cinnamon girl

Ten silver saxes, a bass with a bow

The drummer relaxes and waits between shows

For the cinnamon girl

A dreamer of pictures, I run in the night

You see us together, chasin' the moonlight

My cinnamon girl

Pa sent me money, now I'm gonna make it somehow

I need another chance

You see your baby loves to dance

There it goes

Playing with my heart again

I don't know when

I'm gonna come up for air

For you now, again

For you now

For you now

And the way you look at me

Makes me happy inside

Knowing all the while

I can't hide

Come and go

Wasting my years

I was born to fear

That there's something in the air

For you now, again

For you now

For you now

And the way you look at me

Makes me happy inside

Knowing all the while

I can't hide

When you've thought to come back

Would you take me home?

When you've thought come back

All alone

All alone

There it goes

Playing with my heart again

I don't know when

I'm gonna come up for air

For you now, again

For you now

For you now

And the way look at me

Makes me happy inside

Knowing all the while I can't hide

When you've thought to come back

Could you take me home?

When you've thought to come back

All alone

All alone

Hiding behind my hair today

My eyes dance with fire

The thought of living here

And the bounds I transpire

Walking in this slow-motion town

I seem to think so fast

Standing with your mannequin

I try to hold my breath

The grave that bears my name

Transpires in a dream

I dream immortality

Yet I fall in vain

Cause as long as I don't breathe

I'll never be like them

Standing with your mannequin

I try to hold my breath

If you go and I would stay

And you would call my name

I would cry, yes, I would cry

Walking in or walking out

Is the same as talking about my heart

My heart

Hiding behind my hair today

Wishing I was far away

Walking in this slow-motion town

I seem to think so fast

Standing with your mannequin

I try to hold my breath

If you go and I would stay

And you would call my name

I would cry, yes, I would cry

Walking in or walking out

Is the same as talking about my heart

My heart

If you go and I would stay

And you would call my name

I would cry, yes, I would cry

If you go and I would stay

You would call my name

I would die, yes, I would die

Walking in or walking out

Is the same as talking about my heart

My heart

Take anything you want

This is where I am

Into my shell (under your spell)

I walk a double line

Take anything you want

Isn't it a shame (isn't in a shame)

Wondering who I ought to blame (wondering who to blame)

Planned a show
Trees and balloons
Ice cream snow
See you in June
Could have known
I would reveal
Should have known
I would conceal your way
She knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows
Colors show
After the moon
I should go
See you in June
Your way
And she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows
Open your eyes to these mustered lines
Open your eyes to these mustered lines
The way
And she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows

Quiet walls sputter yes

Rolling tears of pain

Must I go into your hiding room

Using your loss to gain

Walking in the sun

I never fear the light

Walking in the sun

I never fear

Quiet confusion haunts me still

My will can't reign

Must I go into your hiding room

Using your loss to gain

Walking in the sun

I never fear the light

Walking in the sun

Il know that I never fear

Walking in the sun

I never fear the light

Walking in my sun

I know that I never fear

Additional Info: Originally a The Marked (Billy Corgan's band before The Smashing Pumpkins) song.

Your words will one day spite your face

And another mouth will come and take its place

It'll speak and speak and speak and sputter me dry

I will never understand the motive drive

Marked

You

Are

Marked

In a dream I wander on

To the bell tower, writing songs

So I crumple this page, and rip it up

Never piece my broken heart to you

Marked

You

Are

Marked

Your words will one day spite your face

And another mouth will come and take its place

It'll speak and speak and speak and sputter me dry

I will never understand the motive drive

Marked

Your words will spite your face

Your words will spite your face

Spiteface

Spiteface

Spiteface

Spiteface
