Lost your head
Now you sleep on the floor
What you said
I don't want anymore
Through the haze
Make your eyes up to ache
Out in space
Days away

Through these eyes
I rely on all I've seen
Obscured
Through these eyes
Looks like I'm home tonight

Left for dead
As you sweep out the door
Things we said
We don't mean anymore
Tear inside her
Like a fallen kite
Hah, hah, hah, hey, hey, yeah

Through these eyes
I deny on all I see
Obscured
Through these eyes
Looks like I'm home tonight
What you said
Made a mess of me
What you said
I don't want
Obscured

You smell that damned paper, misterbearbaby. Smell it good now!

 I think Corgan was/is a violent minded punk and that inspired a prolific period of great creative activity in the 90s.  I love the Pumpkins and consider Siamese Dream, Mellon and Adore, to be great pieces of work, whiny voice and all.  It sort of suits, but I can understand how it could grate with some.
But then I don't like Men Without Hats. {#Angel}
 
I don't think the fellow with that metal top-hat does either:

Good song.
Nice tune. Underrated in my opinion. Should be played on a more regular basis.
Thanks Bill for todays amazing playlist.

It might mean more if you hadn't also given a 10 to 5167 other songs.


Wow a great segue from Bach Cello Suite!  Who knew?!  .......well except Bill of course.  {#Cheesygrin}  ...One of my favorite SP tunes.
Ahhh...longing for the old lineup.

This was originally on the "Today" single.  It made it onto a lot of my mix tapes back then...

Yes - a highly under rated album IMHO.  
Love this one - haven't heard it in a looong time!

Everybody in my church loves this song...

What?
Sure it's easy to poke fun at "Safety Dance".
But the genius that is "Pop Goes the World"?
Come on.

I love the genius that is Smashing Pumpkins.  Love Zeitgeist (2007) the best; there's actually a tarentella on it.
