"Neverlost" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
All hands on deck
Setting sail to get wrecked off course
You make what you want of me
I will keep you anyway

Let's fill these hours and kill desire
Let's fill these hours and kill desire
I'm in touch with you
Let's kill these hours and fill desire

Every turn is torture thought
Every kicking of the drum

I've seen the film
I know the place
I'm never lost
There's just one way across

I'm never lost

Headlights shoot north
The ends of earth off course
Of course

If you think just right
If you'll love you'll find
Certain truths left behind

All this is that once forgot
A closing down of the gate

But oh these hours
I lost my place
I'm never lost
There's just one way

There's no disgrace in failing me
Let's kill these hours and fill desire
I'm in touch with you
Let's kill these hours and fill desire
I'm in touch with you
I'm in touch with you

    General Commentthis is one of my personal favorites on the album although i think it could have been better.
    I'm in touch with you is such an intimate line

    by the way was i the only one who thought it was funny how the album states:
    Jimmy Chamberlain: drums
    Billy Corgan: ALL THE REST

    General CommentI love the melody and drums in this song. It is also one of my personal favorites from the album.

    "Every turn is torture thought
    Every kicking of the drum"

    I loved this line. I think it speaks to how it can sometimes be torture to think about that person that you love or loved. It also shows how every heatbeat (kicking of the drum) becomes painful.

    I love this song. Can't stop listening to it.

    General CommentOne of my favourites off the album!

    I think this song is also about lust, especially the line, "Let's kill these hours and fill desire" and "I'm in touch with you" And with what Adored_Pumpkinhead said, maybe this song talks of how you're heartbroken, and you just want to burn off the feeling of desire with somebody else.

    Haha, I laughed out loud when I saw that too, said sadly. =P

    General CommentI picked up this album a couple of days before I went on vacation and didn't have enough time to comment on it, I figured by the time I came back there would be at least about 50 comments on here already since this is an amazing song, i guess i overestimated... anyway this is my absolute favorite song on the album. I've listening to it a bunch of times already but i still don't quite know what it means... i haven't just sat down and analyzed it yet but what ckhawa and adored_pumpkinhead said seams right on track. I too love the melody

    and yes, my brother and I got a kick out of the Billy Corgan: ALL THE REST hahha

    General CommentThis might sound odd, but this is actually my favorite song on the album. My favorite used to be "That's The Way (My Love Is)" but the more I listen to this song the more I get into it and love it...

    General CommentFor some reason, this reminds me of Radiohead's "Kid A" song...

    It's definitely one of the better ones on the disc.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely beautiful. I'd have to say the line that really got me is

    "There's no disgrace in failing me"

    I usually see my partners as a direct extension of myself and I felt that if she fails, I fail. Then my psychotherapist friend told me I am asking for a "very tall order" and my goals are so macro that I would see things that way...but through reflection I've come to understand that I should be less opinionated of my other half(seems like common sense right?).

    Anywho...it's great that the Smashing Pumpkins has reintigrated back into a higher level of being!

    General Commenti am generally a lyrics person but i can't deny that the music of this song really really got me...but the lyrics aren't far behind i LOVE the play on words thats been done several times throughout the song like kill the hours and fill desires and then fill the hours and kill desires, then there's off course and of course lots of imagery in there...amazing song...can't stop listening to it.

    General CommentI shiver every time he says "I'm in touch with you"

    The way I see it, there is a distance between or obstacles he's eager -or feels like his emotions give him no other choice- to cross, to reach his love. It's amazing how the words make me picture it, when he says "every turn is torture thought" -like he loses he sleep, and tosses and turns every night thinking of her and suffering from the heartache ("every kicking of the drum").
    It seems like for some reason they can't be together so what's enough for him is to keep her in his life, maybe as a friend ("let's fill these hours and kill desire"). Maybe sometimes he is tempted to give in to desire ("let's kill these hours and fill desire") but then thinks that "it's enough for now, we're in touch".
    He is probably willing to take risks to reach her ("setting sail...") but on the other hand, he 's not so optimistic about it ("...to get wrecked, of course"). He loses himself but knows where he has to get.
    And anyway the conclusion is that there is only one way for him, everything he does, he does for his love. So he isn't lost although he often feels like he is. He'll play all his cards until there's no hope left.
