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

Welcome to nowhere fast

Nothing here ever lasts

Nothing but memories

Of what never was

We’re nowhere, we’re nowhere, we’re nowhere to be

Nowhere, we’re nowhere, we’re nowhere to see

Living makes me sick

So sick I wish I’d die

Down in the belly of the beast

I can’t lie

You’re nowhere, you’re nowhere, you’re nowhere to be

Nowhere, you’re nowhere, you’re nowhere to see

There’s nothing left to do

There’s nothing left to feel

Doesn’t matter what you want, so

To make yourself feel better

You make it so you’ll never

Give in to your forevers

And live for always

And forever, forever, you’re forever to be

Forever, forever, you’re forever to me

My reflection, dirty mirror

There’s no connection to myself

I’m your lover, I’m your zero

I’m the face in your dreams of glass

So save your prayers

For when we’re really gonna need ’em

Throw out your cares and fly

Wanna go for a ride?

She’s the one for me

She’s all I really need

Cause she’s the one for me

Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness

And cleanliness is godliness, and god is empty just like me

Intoxicated with the madness, I’m in love with my sadness

Bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms

The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth

I never let on, that I was on a sinking ship

I never let on that I was down

You blame yourself, for what you can’t ignore

You blame yourself for wanting more

She’s the one for me

She’s all I really need

She’s the one for me

She’s my one and only

The useless drag of another day
The endless drags of a death rock boy
Mascara sure and lipstick lost
Glitter burned by restless thoughts
Of being forgotten
And in your sad machines
You’ll forever stay
Desperate and displeased-with whoever you are
And you’re a star
Somewhere-he pulls his hair down-over a frowning smile
A hidden diamond you cannot find
A secret star that cannot shine over to you
May the king of gloom, be forever doomed
And in your sad machines
You’ll forever stay
Burning up in speed
Lost inside the dreams, of teen machines
The useless drags, the empty days
The lonely towers of long mistakes
To forgotten faces and faded loves
Sitting still was never enough
And if you’re giving in, then you’re giving up
Cause in your sad machines
You’ll forever stay
Burning up in speed
Lost inside the dreams, of teen machines

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

Ten times removed
I forget about where it all began
Bastard son of a bastard son of
A wild eyed child of the sun
And right as rain, I’m not the same but
I feel the same, I feel nothing
Holding back the fool again
Holding back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holding back the fool again
I sensed my loss
Before I even learned to talk
And I remember my birthdays
Empty party afternoons won’t come back
Holding back the fool again
Holding back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holding back the fool again
I forget to forget me
I forget to forget you see
Nothing is important to me
I knew my loss
Before I even learned to speak
And all along, I knew it was wrong
But I played along, with my birthday song
Holding back the fool again
Holding back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holding back the fool again

I’m never coming back
I’m never giving in
I’ll never be the shine in your spit
I disconnect the act
I disconnect the dots
I disconnect the me in me
And you’re mistaken, it’s you that’s faking
Living and breathing and dying too
This message is for anyone who dares to hear a fool
You can’t bring me back, you can’t bring me back
Cause I give it all back to you
Thru sacred alleys, the living wrecks
Wreak their havoc upon this world
The disenchanted, the romantics,
The body and face and soul of you is gone down that deep black hole
Destroy the mind-destroy the body-but you cannot destroy the heart
And you, you make me so I need to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don’t need you love to disconnect
To runaround kids in get-go cars
With Vaseline afterbirths and neon coughs
Galaxies full of nobodies
Giving us the farewell runarounds
I took a virgin Mary ax to his sweet baby Jane,
Lost my innocence to a no good girl,
Scratch my face with anvil hands,
And coil my tongue around a bumblebee mouth
And I give it all back to you
No way, I don’t need it, I don’t need your love to disconnect
And you make it, so real, I don’t need your love to disconnect
No way to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don’t need your love to disconnect
No way to disconnect

To my mistakes, to my mistakes of cowardice
She shimmy shakes, the jimmy jakes of consequence
Born of the airs and dues, my airs of madness do declare
That it’s ok, it’s love
It’s what you wanted to see, it’s who you wanted to be
For what you needed to need, she’ll make it up
Love, it’s who you know
Machine gun blues, her vacant rush is so steel
I’m unaware, lost inside your visions
I got mine too over, I got mine and I got you
Cause I know you, you’re love
It’s what you wanted to see, it’s who you wanted to be
For what you needed to need, she’ll make it up
Love, it’s who you know
Can I look up to you as you look down on me
Can I feel in to you as you felt in to me
I can’t help what you see, I can’t help but to be
For what you needed to need, she’ll make it
Love, it’s who you know

Cupid hath pulled back his sweetheart’s bow
To cast divine arrows into her soul
To grab her attention swift and quick
Or morrow the marrow of her bones be thick
With turpentine kisses and mistaken blows
See the devil may do as the devil may care
He loves none sweeter as sweeter the dare
Her mouth the mischief he doth seek
Her heart the captive of which he speaks
So note all ye lovers in love with the sound
Your world be shattered with nary a note
Of one cupids arrow under your coat
And in the land of star crossed lovers
And barren hearted wanderers
Forever lost in forsaken missives and satan’s pull
We seek the unseekable and we speak the unspeakable
Our hopes dead gathering dust to dust
In faith, in compassion, and in love

Ain’t it funny how we pretend we’re still a child
Softly stolen under our blanket skies
And rescue me from me, and all that I believe
I won’t deny the pain
I won’t deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Will you leave me too?
Carve out your heart for keeps in an old oak tree
And hold me for goodbyes-and-whispered lullabyes
And tell me I am still
The man I’m supposed to be
I won’t deny the pain
I won’t deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Will you leave me too?
Too late to turn to turn back now, I’m running out of sound
And I am changing, changing
And if we died right now, this fool you love somehow
Is here with you
I won’t deny the pain
I won’t deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Would you leave me too?

I fear that I am ordinary, just like everyone

To lie here and die among the sorrows

Adrift among the days

For everything I ever said

And everything I’ve ever done is gone and dead

As all things must surely have to end

And great loves will one day have to part

I know that I am meant for this world

My life has been extraordinary

Blessed and cursed and won

Time heals but I’m forever broken

By and by the way…

Have you ever heard the words

I’m singing in these song?

It’s for the girl I’ve loved all along

Can a taste of love be so wrong

As all things must surely have to end

And great loves will one day have to part

I know that I am meant for this world

And in my mind as I was floating

Far above the clouds

Some children laughed I’d fall for certain

For thinking that I’d last forever

But I knew exactly where I was

And I knew the meaning of it all

And I knew the the distance to the sun

And I knew the echo that is love

And I knew the secrets in your spires

And I knew the emptiness of youth

And I knew the solitude of heart

And I knew the murmurs of the soul

And the world is drawn into your hands

And the world is etched upon your heart

And the world so hard to understand

Is world you can’t live without

And I knew the silence of the world

As far as you take me, that’s where I believe

The realm of soft delusions, floating on the leaves

On a distant shoreline, she waves her arms to me

As all the thought police, are closing in for sleep

The dilly dally, of my bright lit stay

The steam of my misfortunes

Has given me the power to be afraid

And in my mind I’m everyone

And in my mind

Without a care in this whole world

Without a care in this life

It’s what you take that makes it right

Porcelina of the oceans blue

In the slipstream, of thoughtless thoughts

The light of all that’s good, the light of all that’s true

To the fringes gladly, I walk unadorned

With gods and their creations

With filth and disease

Porcelina, she waits for me there

With seashell hissing lullabyes

And whispers fathomed deep inside my own

Hidden thoughts and alibis

My secret thoughts come alive

Without a care in this whole world

Without a care in this life

It’s what you take that makes it right

And in my mind I’m everyone

In my mind I’m everyone of you

You make it right

It’s all allright

You make it right

Porcelina of the oceans blue

Take me down, to the underground

Won’t you take me down, to the underground

Why oh why, there is no light

And if I can’t sleep, can you hold my life

And all I see is you

Take my hand, I lost where I began

In my heart I know all of my faults

Will you help me understand

And I believe in you

You’re the other half of me

Soothe and heal…

When you sleep, when you dream,

I’ll be there if you need me, whenever I hear you sing…

There is a sun, it’ll come, the sun, I hear them call me down

I held you once, a love that once, and life had just begun

And you’re all I see…

And trumpets blew, and angels flew on the other side

And you’re all I see, and you’re all I’ll need

There’s a love that god puts in your heart

Additional Info: The studiotrack samples the rocket launcher explosion from an id Software's game called Doom. This sound effect points to the relationship between Doom and the Smashing Pumpkins in the "SPISPOPD" (an abbreviation for Smashing Pumpkins Into Small Piles Of Putrid Debris) joke, dating from December 1993. The Doom explosion, mentioned in the liner notes of MCIS, can be heard at the following times: 1:20 / 1:55 / 2:29 / 3:01 / 3:44.

Candy cane walks down

To build a bonfire, to break my fall

My baby, my sweet thing

Just maybe we could lose ourselves this time

King of the horseflies, dark prince of death

His tragic forces are heaven sent

In sweet things, in a lovers breath

In knowing this was meant to be the last

A go-go-kids, a go-go-style

A suck suck kiss, a suck suck smile

As always, in young need

A veiled promise to never die

On dead highways, her black beauties roam

For june angels, so far from home

For a love lost, a faded picture

To tread lightning, to ink the lavender skies

So get on the bomb

Cast the pearls aside, of a simple life of need
Come into my life forever
The crumbled cities stand as known
Of the sights you have been shown
Of the hurt you call your own
Love is suicide
The empty bodies stand at rest
Casualties of their own flesh
Afflicted by their dispossession
But no bodies ever knew
Nobody’s
No bodies felt like you
Nobody’s
Love is suicide
Now we drive the night, to the ironies of peace
You can’t help deny forever
The tragedies reside in you
The secret sights hide in you
The lonely nights divide you in two
All my blisters now revealed
In the darkness of my dreams
In the spaces in between us
But no bodies ever knew
Nobody’s
No bodies felt like you
Nobody’s
Love is suicide

Speak to me in a language I can hear
Humour me before I have to go
Deep in thought I forgive everyone
As the cluttered streets greet me once again
I know I can’t be late, supper’s waiting on the table
Tomorrow’s just an excuse away
So I pull my collar up and face the cold, on my own
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet
At the blasphemy in my old jangly walk
Steeple guide me to my heart and home
The sun is out and up and down again
I know I’ll make it, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you
And for a moment I lose myself
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world
I’ve journeyed here and there and back again
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends
Mysteries not ready to reveal
Sympathies I’m ready to return
I’ll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
Tomorrow’s just an excuse
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you

Sleep will not come to this tired body now

Peace will not come to this lonely heart

There are some things I’ll live without

But I want you to know that I need you right now

I need you tonite

I steal a kiss from her sleeping shadow moves

Cause I’ll always miss her wherever she goes

And I’ll always need her more than she could ever need me

I need someone to ease my mind

But sometimes a someone is so hard to find

And I’ll do anything to keep her here tonite

And I’ll say anything to make her feel alright

And I’ll be anything to keep her here tonite

Cause I want you to stay, with me

I need you tonite

She comes to me like an angel out of time

As I play the part of a saint on my knees

There are some things I’ll live without

But I want you to know that I need you right now

Suffer my desire

Suffer my desire

Suffer my desire for 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

Farewell goodnight last one out turn out the lights

And let me be, let me die inside

Let me know the way from of this world of hate in you

Cause the dye is cast, and the bitch is back

And we’re all dead yeah we’re all dead

Inside the future of a shattered past

I lie just to be real, and I’d die just to feel

Why do the same old things keep on happening?

Because beyond my hopes there are no feelings

Bless the martyrs and kiss the kids

For knowing better, for knowing this

Cause you’re all whores and I’m a fag

And I’ve got no mother and I’ve got no dad

To save me the wasted, save me from myself

I lie just to be real, and I’d die just to feel

Why do the same old things keep on happening?

Because beyond my hopes there are no feelings

If I believe, if I decieve, if I defend you now that way

Would you believe, could you recieve, could you have faith

No one is is ever gone

And time is everything and I have none

Everybody’s lost just waiting to be found

Everyone’s a thought just waiting to fade

So fuck it all cause I don’t care

So what somehow somewhere we dared

To try to dare to dare for a little more

I lie just to be real, and I’d die just to feel

Why do the same old things keep on happening?

Because beyond my hopes there are no reasons

Wrap me up in always, and drag me in with maybes

Your innocence is treasure, your innocence is death

Your innocence is all I have

Breathing underwater, and living under glass

And if you spin your love around

The secrets of your dreams

You may find your love is gone

And is not quite what it seemed

To appear to disappear

Beneath all your darkest fears

I believe in never, I believe in all the way

But belief is not to notice, believe is just some faith

And faith can’t help you to escape

And with this ring I wed thee true

And with this ring I wed thee now

And with this ring I play so dead

But no one’s asking for the truth, so let me tell you

If you spin your love around

The secrets of your dreams

You may find your love is gone

And is not quite what it seemed

To appear to disappear

Beneath all your darkest fears

To the revelations of fresh faced youth

No one will come to save you

So speak your peace in the murmurs drawn

But youth is wasted on the young

Your strength is my weakness, your weakness my hate

My love for you just can’t explain

Why we’re forever frozen, forever beautiful,

Forever lost inside ourselves

The night has come to hold us young

Boredom’s in the bathroom shaking out the loose teeth
Sally’s in the stirrups claiming her destiny
And nobody nowhere understands anything
About me and all my dreams
Lost at sea
Jack it up Judy set your heart alight
Mayfair mistress of the satellites
Misspent youth- faking up a rampage
To hold off the real slaves
Paid off and staid
And what you never knew
Can never get to you
So fake it
I’ll be your stumbleine
I’ll be your super queen
And make you
Jukebox fuckup hanging round the drugstore
No matter what you say he’ll be back for more
Mommy’s in the manger with the little kids
She’s got her reasons, got my forgets
Of tears and idle threats
Misplaced
And no matter what they do
They can’t get to you
So fake it
I’ll be your stumbleine
I’ll be your super queen
And make you me
Come around ruby I could never sleep alone

She didn’t wanna be, she didn’t wanna know

She couldn’t run away cause she was crazy

She gave it all away, she saw her baby break

And in the air it hung that she was dull razors

And I said, I wanna fill you up, I wanna break you, I wanna give you up

From one another, another one should come to one another

No one should come between us

Still I was lonely, and she was by my side, my one and only

Knows that she could never hide

I couldn’t feel her, and it was just a game,

Cause I was lonely and she was crazy

Rat-tat-tat, ka boom boom, now take that, and just a bit of this

Cause I’m a watcher, and I’m a doer of none

Come to save you, cause you’re all mine

I hurt where I can’t feel, I feel where I can’t hurt

I know where I can’t know, I bleed for me and mine

Ka-boom, a rat-tat-tat, and some good ole bliss

Cause I’m a sister, and I’m a motherfuck

I am made of shamrocks, I am made of stern stuff

I am never enough, I am the forgotten child

And I said I wanna fill you up, I wanna break you, I wanna give you up

From one another, no one should ever come

In between us, between us and our love

Mary had a little lamb, her face was white as snow

And everywhere that mary went I was sure to go

Now mary’s got a problem, and mary’s not a stupid girl

Mary’s got some deep shit, and mary does not forget

And this is how mary’s garden grows, and this is how mary has her ghosts

And into the eyes of the jackyl I say ka-boom

Now we begin descent, to where we’ve never been

There is no going back, this wasn’t meant to last

This is a hell on earth, we are meant to serve

And she will never learn

Bye bye, baby goodbye

We only come out at night, the days are much too bright

We only come out at night

And once again, you’ll pretend to know me well, my friends

And once again, I’ll pretend to know the way

Thru the empty space

Thru the secret places of the heart

We only come out at night, the days are much too bright

We only come out at night

I walk alone, I walk alone to find the way home

I’m on my own, I’m on my own to see the ways

That I can’t help the days, you will make it home o.k

I know you can, and you can

We only come out at night, the days are much too bright

We only come out at night

And once again, you’ll pretend to know that

There’s an end, that there’s an end to this begin

It will help you sleep at night

It will make it seem that right is always right

Beautiful, you’re beautiful, as beautiful as the sun
Wonderful, you’re wonderful, as wonderful as they come
And I can’t help but feel attached
To the feelings I can’t even match
With my face pressed up to the glass, wanting you
Beautiful, you’re beautiful, as beautiful as the sky
Wonderful, it’s wonderful, to know that you’re just like I
And I’m sure you know me well, as I’m sure you don’t
But you just can’t tell
Who you love and who you won’t
And I love you, as you love me
So let the clouds roll by your face
We’ll let the world spin on to another place
We’ll climb the tallest tree above it all
To look down on you and me and them
And I’m sure you know me well, as I’m sure you don’t
But you just can’t tell, who you’ll love and who you won’t
Don’t let your life wrap up around you
Don’t forget to call, whenever
I’ll be here just waiting for you
I’ll be under your stars forever
Neither here nor there just right beside you
I’ll be under the stairs forever
Neither here nor there just right beside you

Lily, my one and only
I can hardly wait till I see her
Silly, I know I’m silly
Cause I’m hanging in this tree
In the hopes that she will catch a glimpse of me
And thru her window shade
I watch her shadow move
I wonder if she…….?
Lily, my one and only
Love is in my heart and in your eyes
Will she or won’t she want him
No one knows for sure
But an officer is knocking at my door
And thru her window shade
I watch her shadow move
I wonder if she could only see me?
And when I’m with her I feel fine
If I could kiss her I wouldn’t mind the time it took to find
My lily, my one and only
I can hardly wait till I see her
Oh lily, I know you love me
Cause as they’re draggin’ me away
I swear I saw her raise her hand and wave (goodbye)

By starlight I’ll kiss you
And promise to be your one and only
I’ll make you feel happy
And leave you to be lost in mine
And where will we go, what will we do?
Soon said I, will know
Dead eyes, are you just like me?
Cause her eyes were as vacant as the seas
Dead eyes, are you just like me?
And all along, we knew we’d carry on
Just to belong
By starlight I know you
As lovely as a wish granted true
My life has been empty, my life has been untrue
And does she really know, who I really am?
Does she really know me at last
Dead eyes, are you just like me?

Goodnight, to every little hour that you sleep tight
May it hold you through the winter of a long night
And keep you from the loneliness of yourself
Heart strung is your heart frayed and empty
Cause it’s hard luck, when no one understands your love
It’s unsung, and I say
Goodnight, my love, to every hour in every day
Goodnight, always, to all that’s in your heart
Goodnight, may your dreams be so happy and your
Head lite with the wishes of a sandman and a
Night light, be careful not to let the bedbugs
Sleep tight nestled in your covers
The sun shines but I don’t
A silver rain will wash away
And you can tell, it’s just as well
And you can tell, it’s just as well
Goodnight, my love, to every hour in every day
Goodnight, always to all that’s pure that’s in your heart
