"All Things Change" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
[Chorus x2]
All things change
Never rest, never sure
What is worth
Fighting on for

All things change
Around
All is faith
Unwound

I found a lead
A single furtive reason
My senses reeled
In seeking youthful madness
I trust belief belongs to me
Someone will come
To spit the seed
A single weed gets respect
I'll change my quills to break the will
Forever must hold

All things strain
Be they changed
Be they fair
Be they hope
Masked as care

[Chorus x2]

You might
Be there
God knows
Skies stare
Taste dirt

You hurt
Swallow
Shallow
Forgive

This day
Summon
Courage
No light
Comes in
Shadows
Laughing

[Chorus]

We can change the world

    General CommentI think this song references Billy's first attempt at a solo album before he had even formed the smashing pumpkins, which was called "nothing ever changes". I think it talks about how hes grown since then and how all the changes he has gone thru have led him to grow more experienced.

    General Commenti think this was a good choice for his single...
    especially seeing that it seems to be about his changes.
