A brilliant song

I heard the Smashing Pumpkins’ Muzzle for the first time in years on a mix tape of my sister’s last week when I was home. Then I heard it again earlier this week as I was ripping my copy of Mellon Collie for Manu. Then I started obsessing over it, since it’s such an amazingly good song.

Listen here.


I fear that I’m 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 songs?
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 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 the world you can’t live without
And I knew the silence of the world

I’ll probably post a normal entry soon.

    Cool

    I’m digging a lot of songs on the album right now. Another one that caught my ear is Here Is No Why. The opening guitar riff is really catchy. Thanks again for the tunes :)
