Additional Information

This tape includes 2 filler songs from the band’s early days which hadn’t been commercially released until now. Those tracks are a (home-)studio version of “I Fall” (note the early date!) and a live version of “Time Has Come Today” from the Last Exit, Chicago gig on 1988/11/20. Technically we can say The Smashing Pumpkins exists at least since December 1987 by the discovery of this tape.

I am one as you are three
Try to find messiah in your trinity
Your city to burn
Your city to burn
Try to look for something
In your city to burn, you’ll burn
Am I as I seem?
I’m down
Down, so down
Time is right for a guiding light
Try to turn to reasons in your bitter life
Your city to burn
Your city to burn
Try to look for something
In your city to burn, you’ll burn
See you, don’t you just want to
See you, I am one
See you, don’t you just want to
See you
See you, don’t you just want to
See you, I am one
See you, don’t you just want to
See you, I am one

(Over you, like an angel)
Bury me in love
Bury me in love
Shared your kisses
Shame your heart
Buried me and it hurts
I love my sister so (chain, unchain)
She don’t smother me (chain, unchain, unchain)
I played the spades I know (unchain)
I’m a jack of all trades
Would you bury me
Want to see her born inside (hide, hide)
Some of the things you just can’t hide
If you see her tell me why (hide, hide)
Why won’t she come outside
If you see her tell me why (hide, hide)
Why won’t she come outside
Want to see her born inside (hide, hide)
Some of the things you just can’t hide
She waits, bury me
She waits, bury me

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

Not worth asking, who I’m supposed to be

Not worth saying, seems I’m free

Not worth reaching, to anyone at all

Not worth reaching out to stop this fall

I’m on my own

Yeah, I’m on my own

Not worth being, I might already be

I just want someone to reach for me

Not worth sinkin’, it’s not worth diggin’ down

I’ve been here before, and hate what I’ve found

It’s too late, too late

I’m on my own, I’m on my own

I’ve gotta go so far away

It’s too late, too late

I’m on my own, I’m on my own

I’ve gotta go so far away, so far away

Not worth asking, who I’m supposed to be

Not worth saying something, seems I’m free

Not worth reaching to anyone at all

Not worth reaching out, I’ll stop this fall

But I like you just the same

You’ve got to know some how

That I’m the one to blame

We’ve come so far along

To end this destiny

You’ve got to know somehow

That it’s too late, too late

I’m on my own, I’m on my own

I’ve gotta go so far away

Yeah, it’s too late, too late

I’m on my own, I’m on my own

I’ve gotta go so far away, so far away

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

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

Pa sent me money, now I’m gonna make it somehow
I need another chance
You see your baby loves to dance

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

Taking everything I have

Losing my mind

Losing everything I have

You want satisfaction you can’t receive

Who do you want to be?

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

Additional Info: Recorded by Billy Corgan and James Iha, using a drummachine, at Billy's father Home Studio. For 3 different reasons this song can be considered as the first creative outing of the Smashing Pumpkins, though the bandname was not yet known at that moment: 1. It was recorded by 2 future Smashing Pumpkins members, without any other influences of members of other bands, past or present at that time. 2. The Smashing Pumpkins played this song live at least 1 time, at the Avalon in Chicago on 1988/08/10. 3. In 1989 this exact same recorded track was released on a private demotape called Gish/Moon, with the name Smashing Pumpkins on it. Billy Corgan has always said he considered the Smashing Pumpkins existing from 1988 till 2000. We however, consider this recording part of the Smashing Pumpkins history and we could say technically the Smashing Pumpkins exist since 1987.

It makes no difference to me
If I die in my sleep tonight
I’m sick to the bone
And longing for home
My blood runs white
And I didn’t want anyone
And I didn’t want anyone
To be hurt by my words
If there’s pain in hell, I’m feeling it today
Wishing I were seven in a children’s heaven
How heavy the world weighs
How heavy the world weighs
How heavy the world weighs
How heavy the world weighs
Ghosts don’t cry
And the dead don’t die
They walk hand in hand
As if partners in crime
Partners in crime
I fall
On and on and on down
I fall
On and on and on down
I’m falling down
On and on and on down
I fall
On and on and on down
The world could feed you love
But it’s me you’ve come to despise
Like a head on a plate of purity
Playing Judas Iscariot
In the hands of sanctity
How heavy the world weighs
How heavy the world weighs
When one must carry the world
I fall
On and on and on down
I fall
On and on and on down
I’m falling down
On and on and on down
I’m falling down
On and on
I fall down
I fall down
When you’re not around
I fall
On and on and on down
I fall down
On and on and on
On and on and on
On and on and on down
I fall down
I fall down
How heavy the world weighs
How heavy the world weighs

Time has come today
Young hearts must go their way
Can’t put it off another way

I’ve been rolled by tumbling tide
