"99 Floors" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
I used to know you
I used to care
I used to know you
Are you still there?

I won't touch you
I won't feel you
I won't hear you
I won't see you

I used to know you
Are you still there?
I used to know you
I used to care

It goes far and wide
It's a cruel device
I cannot drive
You from my mind

I won't reach out
I won't strike in
I won't dream about
I won't parse the thought

I used to know you
I used to care
I used to know you
Are you still there?

I jumped from the top
And fell right back and I
Hit the ground running
Scared
I swam to the bottom of the sea
And I asked around for someone
Who might know me

Ain't a sad when your choices
are Vegas and your friends

99 floors
And still nowhere to go
99 floors
And still nowhere to roam

A punch to the head
I passed right out and an
impotent stood dumbstruck
and stared
Armed once again by the fist of fate
I wait for his resurrection home

Ain't it sad when your choices
are vices or advice

It's eleven o'clock
And don't that make you bawl
It's eleven o'clock
And don't ya make it bawl

Evil, ailing
Feeling oh so low
I'm slow to anger
Wonder where I could
Ever go
You know I'd have to forget

It goes far and wide
It's a cruel device
I cannot drive
You from my mind

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my best friend. We're going through some tough times. Things are rough.

    Billy Corgan never fails to make me feel like I have someone to relate to. His music is always there to catch me when I need it to.
