Lyrical Friday

Welcome to Lyrical Friday! Music is so important in all of our creative journeys as well as in our own personal soundtrack of life.  So many songs have influenced me and I want to use this day to put up a video and lyrics of songs from all genre’s that I find to have some sort of beauty or impact, or that I just think are awesome.

The Smashing Pumpkins formed in 1988. Siamese Dream was a success but their album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is what brought them world-wide fame. We all loved Billie Corgan’s original voice and I know I was pretty bummed when they broke up in 2000.  In 2006 they got back together, made a new album and toured for a few years. They have two new albums in the works.

Bullet With Butterfly Wings from the 1995 The Smashing Pumpkins album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness  

 
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
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
despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
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 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
despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
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 yeah
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
despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a
despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a
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 for you
and I still believe that I cannot be saved
and I still believe that I cannot be saved
and I still believe that I cannot be saved
and I still believe that I cannot be saved
