"Lyric" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
here comes my faith to carry me on
a faith not of grade
i fight to to stay strong so i
stand accused of playing numb
i know it is wrong
for i give my strength
i give my heart
take these chains
and hold them as ours
for i must shine
and i will a star
in a season all mine

a lyric, a time, a crusade, a line
one minute, a friend, a road without end
a lyric, a time, a crusade, a line
one minute, a friend, a road without end

so here is the view
i cast about
i'm leaving no room
for you to get out
you'll never get out

dove, can't you cry without an aside
?
i need you as my way
across my life
to spend these years
create a new thought
for i give you strength
and offer my heart
take these chains
and hold them as ours
for i'm a star
and i will shine
in a season all mine

a lyric, a time, a crusade, a line
one minute, a friend, a road without end
a lyric, a time, a crusade, a line
one minute, a friend, a road without end
a lyric, a time, a crusade, a line
one minute, a friend, a road without end
a lyric, a time, a crusade, a line
one minute, a friend, a road without end
a road without end

    General CommentAnyone notice how much Corgan references faith in this album? Add the Mary, Star of the Sea/Jesus, I track and the crusade reference...no, I'm not suggesting he's Christian. But he seems to have a fascination with Christianity, no?

    General CommentBillly's sort of a New-Age-type believer in God, not really a Christian though. This song kicks so much ass.

    General CommentMogs, you ought to be shot. perhaps god does = god. but so does billy corgan. god = god = billy corgan. as proven by this incredible song preceeding many other amazing tracks on the, unfortunately, only album by Zwan

    General Commentand for all of you who think this is some totally different billy corgan, you obviously didn't pay enough attention to the pumpkins...

    the two most important sp members continued to zwan, they still employ lots of overdubbed guitars, and, most importantly, the PUMPKINS did sweet, emotional 'prozac' stuff, too. So many people out there only know Bullet with Butterfly Wings, Ava Adore, maybe Zero, and Today and Disarm (with depressed/rageful lyrics if not a depressed sound)... but can't bring themselves to associate songs like Beautiful, Porcelina, Rocket, By Starlight, etc with the Pumpkins, because it doesn't fit their image of badass, angst-driven Billy Corgan. Too bad for them.
