I go along
Just because I'm lazy
I go along to be with you

And those moonsongs
That you sing your babies
Will be the songs to see you through

I'll hear your song
If you want me to
I'll sing along
And it's a chance I'll have to take
And it's a chance I'll have to break

She gave it all away
She gave it all away
She gave it all away
We really love the USA

Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
Ooh, the years burn

But when I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I'd ever been

Quiet
I am sleeping
in here
We need a little hope

For years
I've been sleeping
Helpless
Couldn't tell a soul

Be ashamed
Of the mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Silent
Metal mercies
Castrate
Boys to the bone

Jesus
Are you listening?
Up there
To anyone at all

We are the fossils
The relics of our time
We mutilate the meanings
So they're easy to deny

Be ashamed
Of the mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet
I don't trust you
I can't hear you

Be ashamed
Of the mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Behind me
The grace of falling snow
Cover up everything you know
Come save me from the awful sound
Of nothing

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

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 plan
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

Nothing left to say
And all I've left to do
Is run away
From you
And she led me on, down
With secrets I can't keep

Close your eyes and sleep
Don't wait up for me
Hush now don't you speak
To me

Wrapped my hurt in you
And took my shelter in that pain
The opiate of blame
Is your broken heart, your heart

So now I'm all by myself
As I've always felt
I'll betray my tears
To anyone caught in our ruse of fools

One last kiss from me...yeah
One last kiss good night

Didn't want to lose you once again
Didn't want to be your friend
Fulfilled a promise made of tin
And crawled back to you

I'm all by myself
As I've always felt
I'll betray myself
To anyone, lost, anyone but you

So let the sadness come again
On that you can depend on me, yeah
Until the bitter, bitter end of the world, yeah
When god sleeps in bliss

And I'm all by myself
As I've always felt
And I'll betray myself
To anyone

My favorite Smashing Pumpkins album. Full of beautiful, ornate instrumentation. Standout tracks include "Cherub Rock," "Today," and "Disarm."

Gorgeous. This whole album is like a lullaby. I can lay on my back, close my eyes and float away. It is relaxing and makes me warm and fuzzy all over. It was one of my favourites in high school, and still is to this day.

this is such a great album I long for the 1990's the last great decade of music when bands made great albums and not just great singles and the rest crappy albums like today.most of this album could be a best of Pumpkins not one bad song.of course this made the band stars and is the biggest seller besides Today Cherub Rock Disarm and Rocket which were hit singles there are great album songs like Geek Usa Mayonise and Silver.after Gish which is my favorite album this is my second favorite.anyone getting into this great band pick this one up!

My aural safety-blanket...It never lets me down: Acrobatic guitar-rock obsessively manicured and arranged inside tight and deftly crafted structure with laser-like precision and sheepish sensitivity.

Commit these harmonies to memory. Original sound, killer mixing. Super easy place to begin if you want to learn some of their music!

The first time I heard this in the summer of 1994 it seemed so different to me. I never got around to buying a copy. Eventually I bought "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness", and only listened to it a few times; it was okay, but somehow I wasn't motivated to play it much. I bought "Gish" and didn't really like it much. I had forgotten about the Pumpkins for nearly 10 years until I saw that the library had this CD. Having listened to this again, I can now honestly say that I don't like the Smashing Pumpkins. It took a while to figure that out.

Sans drums....recorded in large part by one artist (William Corgan). The album that broke this quartet. Cannot blame him (Corgan); far from the mainstream but perfect from measure to measure.
