"Blank" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
I wish I was blank
I wish I was blank
I wish I could thank
I wish I was blank
I'd write a letter to you
And there'd be nothing to it
I wouldn't hem and haw
On just how to start it
I wish I was blank
I wish I was blank
I wish I could thank
I wish I was blank
I wish I'd stand up straight
I wish I'd said things different
I wish I'd said nothing
Things would be so perfect
I wish myself to keep
I pray my soul to sleep
I wish myself away
I wish I was blank

    General Commentto me this seems to say that at the time billy is worried, or confused, or sad about a certain thing, or many at once. and he basically wishes that he didnt feel at all so he wouldn't have anything to worry about.
    and interpretation is that he wishes that he could erase an experience(s) and go back to where he was, or start off from scratch.

    General CommentHe wishes to purge himself of all feelings, to cleanse his mind, soul, and heart until he is blank. "I'd write a letter to you and there'd be nothing to it" perhaps about writing a letter to a lover and not caring anymore. "I pray my soul to sleep I wish myself away" are lines maybe about sleeping or dying? In some way, losing consciousness and conscious feeling.

    General CommentI like how he pronounces "perfect" stressing the t at the end, perfectly.
