"Apathy's Last Kiss" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
What's the matter
What's the difference
You'll feel better if you lie
With the stars in your eyes

Honey, Honey
Where's my baby
She know better than to cry
With the stars in her eyes

There is
No safe place to go
I should know
The lame
And the droll have needs
To let their feelings show

What's the matter
What's the difference
What's the question
You'll feel better
If you lie
With the stars in your eyes

There is
No safe place to go
I should know
The lame
And the droll have needs
To let their feelings show

Bury your heart in a hole
Bury your heart in a
Bury your heart in a
Bury your heart in a hole

    General CommentI think this is a hopeless song. It's about hiding your emotions and keeping it all inside. The title suggest this. Apathy, according to m-w.com, is a lack of emotion. And "Bury your heart in a hole" definately adds to that. So easy to relate to.

    General CommentMy favorite Pumpkins song.

    Basically he's saying only the main character thinks only weak people show feelings. So this person here is bottling everything up. Someone asks the main character "what's the matter?" and she just responds with "what's the difference?"... basically over time it feels like people don't care, so we just keep stuff inside. We think that it makes us stronger, but it really doesn't.

    However, as I say this, I do bury my heart in a hole most of the time.

    This is a hopeless song, I agree with you, wolfperson1. But it's also very helpful in a strange way.

    General Commentthis is a beautiful song (the Pumpkins had many of them).

    I agree with sirenlunaris. Although th esong is some what hopeless because things aren't being resolved, it also teaches us what not to do (espeically for things as important as emotions). We often learn what to do by seeing example of what we shouldn't do.
