all Smashing Pumpkins lyrics



Tonight, Tonight
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
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
Believe in the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe there's not a chance 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, tonightback to top
Jellybelly
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 meback to top
Zero
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 you'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 victoms 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 onlyback to top
Here Is No Why
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 your 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, you're giving up
'cause in your sad machines
You'll forever stay
Burning up in speed
Lost inside the dreams of teen machinesback to top
Bullet With Butterfly Wings
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

(chorus)
Even though I know - I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage (2x)
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I'm 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

(chorus)

(chorus 2)
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

(chorus)
(chorus 2)

Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage
And I still believe that I cannot be savedback to top
To Forgive
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

(chorus)
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

(chorus)

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

(chorus)back to top
Fuck You (An Ode To No One)
I'm never coming back
I'm never giving in
I'll never be the shine in your spit (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 allys, the living wrecks, yeah
Wreak their havoc upon this world
The disenchanted, the romantics,
The body and face and soul of you has gone down that deep black hole

Destroy the mind - destroy the body - but you cannot destroy the heart
Destroy the mind - destroy the body - but you cannot destroy the heart
And you, make it so I need to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don't need your love to disconnect

To runaround kids get in get-go cars
With vaseline afterbirths and neon coughs
Galaxies full of nobodies
Giving us the farewell runarounds
I took a Virgin Mary axe to his sweet baby Jane, lost my innocence to a no good girl,
Scratch my face with anvil hands, and coil my tounge around a bumblebee mouth
And I give it all back to you
I give it all back to you, yey
I give it all back to you
For you

No way!
I don't need it!
I don't need you love to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don't need your love to disconnect

No way, no way
No way to disconnect
And you mak it so real
I don't need your love to disconnect
No way, no way
Now way to disconnect!back to top
Love
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 to declare
That it's ok, it's love

(chorus)
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

(chorus)

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 I needed to need, she'll make it
Love, it's who you knowback to top
Cupid De Locke
Cupid hath pulled back hi 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 loveback to top
Galapogos
Ain't it funny how we pretend we're still a child
Softly stolen under blanket skies
And rescue me from me, and all that I believe

(chorus)
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?

Carve out your heart for keeps in and old oak tree
And hold me for goodbyes and whispered lullabyes
And tell me I am still the man I'm supposed to be

(chorus)

Too late to turn to turn back now, I'm running out of sound
And I'm changing, changing, and if we died right now
This fool you love somehow is here with you

(chorus)back to top
Muzzle
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

(chorus)
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 songs?
It's for the girl I've loved all along
Can a taste of love be so wrong

(chorus)

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 distance to the sun
And I knew the echo that is love
And I knew the 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 the world you can't live without
And I knew the silence of the worldback to top
Porcelina Of The Vast Oceans
As far as you take me, that's where I believe
The realm of soft delusions, floating on the laves
On a distant shoreline, she waves her arms to me
As all the thought police, and 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 blueback to top
Take Me Down
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
Whenever I hear you sing...

There's 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 the trumpets blew, and angels flew to the other side
And you're all I see, and you're all I need
There's a love that God puts in your heartback to top
