Additional Information

Tracklist for this release was verified using a seller’s impression of the songs upon listening. SPfreaks reviewed the notes and suggest that the cassette is a combination of The Moon (partial) and The Smashing Pumpkins demo cassettes. It is not known where the split from Side A to Side B occurs.

The original seller claims an “unknown song” exists between the tracks Sun (Remix) and She. At this time, it is unknown if this claim is accurate.

Interestingly, the original contributor of this cassette confirms the title, DAT TAPE #1, which is present on the j-card insert, is indeed packaged with the tape (as pictured) titled DAT TAPE #2. This inconsistency presents two possibilities: one, the DAT TAPE #2 is a scribal error and is supposed to read DAT TAPE #1, or two; the package was somehow mishandled and another DAT TAPE #1 cassette also exists.

By taking one step further into making an educated guess regarding the true nature of this release, the omission of the first four songs from the Moon demo on this cassette seems to suggest they could appear at the end of the real DAT TAPE #1 – the one that may or may not exist. Using this theory also suggests DAT TAPE #1 (Side A and part of Side B) would be full of other pre-Virgin material. However, at this time, there is no evidence to support this claim, so the entry will be left as is, until a time we can prove another DAT TAPE was created.

In Spanish: “My sacred heart. I speak of my heart as if it were an entity seperate from me. I think the same thing about pain. It’s like an evil spirit outside of me that’s always with me. The pain that I feel is like a weight that guides me. There’s no way to destroy it. It’s my eternal opera.”

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

Bye June
I’m going to the moon
It better be by June
‘Cause I’m going to the moon
So June
You’d better make it soon
I hope you make it June
‘Cause I’m going to the moon
Bye June
Bye June
I’m going to the moon
I hope you make it soon
‘Cause I’m waiting on this moon
Bye June
I hope you make it too
I’m wishing you’re there too
I hope you make it June
Bye bye June
Hope you make it to the moon

I know this room just crumbles like a tomb
Surrender to the day that I made
Your stars fall in
Your stars fall in
Don’t waste it
You’re not simple
When my head swells just like a balloon
So soon I must realize
Once my words were dangerous
Now they just seem blasphemous
Stars fall in
I’ve walked in search of soul complete
Higher than I’d ever want to be
Come along with me
Over the edge and over to the shelf
Polished up and realized
What I’ve done confronts me whole
Looking into a world disowned
Stars fall in
Your stars fall in
Your stars fall in
(Ok)

Length: 2:49

Hands that offer
Hands that take
Someone’s daughter
Taking me, take me away
In the water
Just like a snake
Someone’s daughter
Hidden up, sleep away
And you feel you’ve been abused
For your life, your love, and truth

Length: 0:17

In Spanish: “I want to triumph over you. I want respect. I want it all. God will help me to help myself. I don’t know. Dreams and wishes become reality. Peace and love for humanity.”

Additional Info:

On Gish this track is combined with "I'm Going Crazy".


My daydream seems as one inside of you

Though it seems hard to reach through this life

Your blue and hopeless life

My daydream screams bitter 'til the end

The love I share -true- selfish to the heart

My heart, my sacred heart

My daydream dream

My daydream

My daydream dream

My daydream

Length: 0:23

In Spanish: “The surreal and suspect dream — I want to clearly remember it, but I can’t. The dream lives in me. My desires control me. My thoughts follow. What is it that stops me from killing, from thinking, from recognizing my destiny? Nothing, absolutely nothing.”

Length: 6:06

Taking my time

Taking everything I have

Losing my mind

Losing everything I have

Who do you want to be?

You want satisfaction you can’t receive

Who do you want to be?

You want satisfaction you can’t receive

Harder to find

Easy to just walk away

I’m losing my mind

I’ve lost everything I have

And I have

And I have

Yeah, I have

Who do you want to be?

You want satisfaction you can’t receive

How many times will you leave?

You want sati-satisfaction you can’t receive

[and i thought that i knew who it was (?)]

She always waits for someone
Someone who’ll never leave
Revealing her decision
Her arms cover me
My cup holds no one
To anyone believe
She always waits for someone
Someone, someone just like me
Jennifer
Jennifer ever
Jennifer
Jennifer always tells me
Please don’t be afraid
I just want to hold you
I only want you to stay
My cup holds no one
To anyone believe
She always waits for someone
Someone, someone just like me
Jennifer
Jennifer ever
Jennifer
Jennifer
Jennifer ever
Jennifer
My cup holds no one
To anyone believe
She always waits for someone
Someone, someone just like me

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

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

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

She will never, ever go

Waiting for her man

Waiting for her man

She will never, ever know

Waiting for her time

Waiting for my time

Wall to wall I hear the noise

Standard in her voice

Simple in her choice

She is everything

Monday to tuesday

Wednesday's another game

Praying for sunday

I'm the one she swore she'd never love

I'm the one I know she's thinking of

She will never, ever burn

Waiting for her time

Waiting for her time

She will never, ever say

Waiting for her game

Waiting for her game

She, yeah

She, yeah yeah yeah

Wall to wall i hear the noise

Standard in her voice

Simple in the choice

She is everything

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
