"Blank Page" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Blank page is all the rage
Never meant to say anything
In bed I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
Got dressed drove the state line
Looking for you at the five and dime
Stop sign told me stay at home
Told me you were not alone
Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to hurt anyone
In bed I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
You haven't changed
You're still the same
May you rise as you fall
You were easy you are forgotten
You are the ways of my mistakes
I catch the rainfall
Through the leaking roof
That you had left behind
You remind me
Of that leak in my soul
The rain falls
My friends call
Leaking rain on the phone

Take a day plant some trees
May they shade you from me
May your children play beneath

Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to say anything
In bed I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
Got dressed drove the state line
Looking for you at the five and dime
But there I was picking pieces up
You are a ghost
Of my indecision
No more little girl

    General Commentin bed, real ill.....lonely as hell, thinking of the one you love who doesnt feel that way(anymore), cant sleep, dont know what to say to anyone, i guess the blank page is that the person you love doenst feel the same or that your finding it hard to talk to anyone.... or maybe billys struggling to write songs, this is a great song anyway, one of my faves

    General CommentOnce again, I find myself commenting on another work of art. The piano is haunting...it follows you around in your thoughts. Very beautiful. It's sad, but beautiful.

    General Commenti agree with you fleaaaaaa...this part of the song: "got dressed drove the state line
    looking for you at the five and dime
    stop sign told me stay at home
    told me you were not alone" can be about that she met someone new!?
    blank page was all the rage...it´s also a very angry song to me...all anger you had inside never came out...that you stuffed it all inside and never let it out...thats the blank page for me

    General CommentTo me, this song seems to be about being in love with someone who no longer loves you, or maybe never did in the first place. He wants to forget about the person the song was written about, (You were easy/you are forgotten/You are the ways of my mistakes) but he can't, she's a part of him, as much as it tears him up. It's about the misery, the sadness of losing someone, the desperateness, the feeling of the bloody gash they left in your heart. There's the hope that that person will change, will love you, but they never will.

    General CommentIts profound, and it speaks to me like WastedYouth said, but its just irritating! Probably the worst Smashing Pumpkins song I've heard. I always skip this track on my CD

    General CommentThis song has it's own meaning for me. Blank Page means getting a point across without saying a word. And to me silence is more rageful than anything else in the world when it comes from someone you love. The silence or lack of response is worse than any shouting match one could ever have. Silence can be a lover's worst nightmare.
