"Strayz" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
The gifts I share
The love I kept inside for you
There's no one there but failed soldiers
And dare we feel
We shared a light that won't go out
But goes on
What's farther than the noonday sun?

You know I'm true
I wasn't born to follow
You know I'm true
I wasn't born to follow
You are what you are to me
You are what you are to me

I take things down
I play chess from both sides now
There's no regrets
Just junk sayings
What is the price if you won't play?

You know I'm true
Wasn't born to follow
You know I'm true
Wasn't born to follow

You stay with me
You stay with me when I go
You know I'm true
Wasn't born to follow

Yeah yeah
You know I'm true
Wasn't born to follow

    General Commenti think this might be written to billy's fans, all of those who have followed him from his days in the late 80s breaking onto the chicago scene... with its nostalgic, almost elegiac tone, it seems like billy is looking back on his career, and just telling his fans that he was never in it to be popular, or be loved by the mainstream, he was just trying to make amazing music... a true visionary who "wasn't born to follow," and never did.
