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

I’m so alone
I’m so alone, I’m thinking
I’m so alone, I can’t get old
I’m so alone
I’m so alone, I can’t get off of you
Fool, you love yourself
Fool, you love yourself and no one else
The bitter root of self
Come on, baby
No time for maybes
One last trip to hell
Come on, come on, come on, can you feel it?
Come on, come on, come on, can you feel it?
Low in you
Slow in you
It’s that glow in you
I’m so alone
I’m so alone, I’m sinking
I’m so alone, I can’t get lost in you
Fool, you love yourself
Fool, you love yourself and no one else
The bitter root of self
Come on, baby
Drive me crazy
One last trip to hell
Come on, come on, come on, can you feel it?
Come on, come on, come on, can you feel it?
Low in you
Slow in you
It’s that glow in you
And it’s not strange
That you’re the same
From me
And it’s not strange
That I’m so strange
To please
Come on, come on, come on, can you feel it?
Come on, come on, come on, can you feel it?
Come on, come on, come on, can you feel it?
Come on, come on, come on, can you feel it?

I spin off and lose my head

Throwing stray a spark instead

Gather strength down in my heel

And dig it in the world I peel

Way down deep within my heart

Lies a soul that’s torn apart

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t give – I unveil

Don’t want to live in your misery

I don’t live – I inhale

Sprinkle all my kisses on your head

Stars full of wishes fill our beds

She said, “I’m dead”

All this pain smothers me

Like a bomb that you can’t see

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t give – I unveil

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t live

I lie, I wait
I stop, I hesitate
I am, I breathe
I meant, I think of me
Is it any wonder I can’t sleep?
All I have is all you gave to me
Is it any wonder I found peace through you?
Turn to the gates of heaven, to myself be damned
Turn away from light
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough
I taste, I love
I come, I bleed enough
I hate, I’m not
I was, I want too much
Is it any wonder I can’t sleep?
All I have is all you gave to me
Is it any wonder I found peace through you?
Turn to the gates of heaven, to myself be damned
Turn away from light
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough, just a touch

It’s not enough, just a touch

Fool enough to almost be it
Cool enough to not quite see it
Doomed
Pick your pockets full of sorrow
And run away with me tomorrow
June
We’ll try and ease the pain
But somehow we’ll feel the same
Well, no one knows
Where our secrets go
I send a heart to all my dearies
When your life is so, so dreary
Dream
I’m rumored to the straight and narrow
While the harlots of my perils
Scream
And I fail
But when I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will
Mother weep the years I’m missing
All our time can’t be given
Back
Shut my mouth and strike the demons
That cursed you and your reasons
Out of hand and out of season
Out of love and out of feeling
So bad
When I can, I will
Words defy the plans
When I can, I will
Fool enough to almost be it
And cool enough to not quite see it
And old enough to always feel this
Always old, I’ll always feel this
No more promise no more sorrow
No longer will I follow
Can anybody hear me
I just want to be me
When I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will

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

Speed kills, but beauty lives forever

Speed thrills, but beauty knows your name

I fell ill inside eternal winter, winter

And stood still beside eternal flame

And when I ride

With you tonight

We can move

At the speed of light

With all I’d asked

And all I’d pray

The last rose of summer would stay

First time that I ever saw you

Crashing hard thru days of pain

You were one of god’s children

Left to cry out in the rain

Waiting to be saved again

‘Cause when I ride

With you tonight

We can move

At the speed of light

And all I’d ask

And all I pray

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer is gone

Long gone, gone

The last rose of summer is gone

When I ride

With you tonight

We can move

At the speed of light

Forever young

Forever blind

Into the stars

We rock tonight

Last rose of summer is gone

The last rose of summer is gone

The last rose of summer is gone

The last rose of summer is gone

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer is gone

A livewire moves slow

A transformer always knows

The score is four

Leaves you hanging on the floor

For more and less and more of the blame

And she’s tired

And she’s sick of the same old shit

It’s just more of the same old same

I know she wants more and more and more to witness

To lay down and bear true

A cherry onion firefly

Tastes sweet and white

As you are blue

Knows just what she wants to do

With you below the silver skies

Don’t hate her because she’s undecided

And she’s tired

And she’s sick of the same old shit

It’s just more of the same old same

I know she wants more and more and more to stomach

In honor of her youth

She’s not sorry she’s happy

Sorry she’s happy

She’s not sorry she’s happy

Sorry she’s happy as a turtle

She’s a real live transformer

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

But if I feel safe

What do I need

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

Mother I’m tired

Come surrender my son

Time has ravaged on my soul

No plans to leave but still I go

Fallin’ with the leaves

Fallin’ out of sleep

To the last goodbyes

Who cares why?

Mother I’ve tried

Wasting my life

I haven’t given up, I lie

To make you so proud in my eyes

Fallin’ out of sleep

Crawlin’ over me

To the last goodbyes

Who cares why?

Tuesdays come and gone

Restless still I drive

Try to leave it all behind

Fallin’, fallin’ out of sleep

Fallin’, fallin’ with the leaves

I got crawlin’, crawlin’ over me

Once upon a time in my life…

I went falling

Mother I hope you know

That I miss you so

Time has ravaged on my soul

To wipe a mother’s tears grown cold

I love you, I don’t even care
If it takes my life, or heaven unaware
Sin for sin, I’ve let you in, and still I’m caught
So put my heart, on your chopping block
And feed me fire, but don’t let go!
Hey don’t let go!, don’t let go
Again, again, again
When will I see you again?
Before the world should end, when will I see you again?
When will I see you again?
Again…
Struck deeply, some never heal
Caught beyond a prism, I conceal
Judgement day, comes every day to us all
So fall in love, oh if you must!
But don’t let go! Hey don’t let go!
Don’t let go
Again, again, again
When will I see you again?
Before the world should end, when will I see you again?
It never stops the starting up
The atrophy, the cruel enough
The vision of oblivion, and when it ends it all begins
To start again and then you’re in
So grab my hand should you believe, there’s a destiny
When will I see you again? when will I see you?
Again, again, again
When will I see you again?
Before the world should end, when will I see you?
Again…

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

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

Send a heartbeat to the void that cries through you

Relive the pictures that have come to pass

For now we stand alone

The world is lost and blown

And we are flesh and blood disintigrate

With no more to hate

Is it bright where you are?

And have the people changed?

Does it make you happy you’re so strange?

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

We can watch the world devoured in its pain

Delivered from the blast

The last of a line of lasts

The pale princess of a palace cracked

And now the kingdom comes

Crashing down undone

And I am a master of a nothing place

Of recoil and grace

Is it bright where you are?

And have the people changed?

Does it make you happy you’re so strange?

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

We can watch the world devoured in its pain

Time has stopped before us

The sky cannot ignore us

No one can separate us

For we are all that is left

The echo bounces off me

The shadow lost beside me

There’s no more need to pretend

Cause now I can begin again

Is it bright where you are?

And have the people changed?

Does it make you happy you’re so strange?

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

We can watch the world devoured in its pain

Breaking all your rules

Little by little the night turns around
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning
Under the eaves the swallow is resting
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
Over the mountain watching the watcher
Breaking the darkness
Waking the grapevine
One inch of love is one inch of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun
Witness the man who raves at the wall
Making the shape of his questions to Heaven
Whether the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving?
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun
