"Quasar" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
God right on!
Krishna right on!
Mark right on!
Yod He Vau He Om
Let’s ride on!
Right on!
Let’s ride on!

Fated One hold me down
Know my blur and my keep
Do I know you?
What keeps us free if you believe?
Please allow me to say hello to you
Yes I understand
Yes I know thy will
Yes I am that man
Yes, I
Yes, I

Lover, lover, catch me slow
You can serve me notice
You can have my sight
Lover, lover stay with me all night

Yod He Vau He Om
Brothers, Sisters roam!
Sunlight ride on!
Yod He Vau He Om
Let’s ride on!
Right on!
Ride on!

Yes I understand
Yes I know thy will
Yes I am one man
Yes I
Yes I understand
Yes I know thy will
Yes I am one man
Yes, I
Yes, I
Yod He Va Hey Om
Yod He Va Hey Om
Yod He Va Hey Om
Om…

    Song MeaningOur glorious opener to this amazing new album. pumped up with pounding drums, Gish-ish power chords, and something we all couldn't have missed. "YOD HE VAU HE OM!!" Which translates to "Mother Father Daughter Son," (and then OM). my interpretation is that Billy knew we all missed this sound from the mid-90's, so he through all of it and more at the very beginning of the album. also, it's got the very feeling of Cherub Rock at the beginning to symbolize going back to that thrashy, old, early 90's sound. lyrics are meaningless, but i think this song symbolizes the beginning of life, in a way. being the beginning of the album, and fading in slowly, then exploding into a full-force, pounding masterpiece! i love the drums, i just can't get enough of it. i've heard of people HATING Quasar, and i can't imagine why. it's a perfect opener for Oceania, since alot of the stuff later in the album is alot different.

    General CommentI'm going to go through every Oceania song today (slow day at work).

    I love Quasar.

    It's basically just a declaration from Billy to the listener of what he wants you to expect.

    I think the essence of this song is in these four lines:


    Please allow me to say hello to you
    Yes I understand
    Yes I know thy will
    Yes I am that man



    It's basically just Billy saying, "I know you wanted the "old" Pumpkins, and I'm still that guy and I've always had it in me... so let's ride on right through this album"


    It is very similar to the song Untitled in that regard. Sort of a, "I told you I could always do what the Pumpkins did in the 90's if I wanted"

    General CommentI'm going to go through each song on Oceania today, might as well start with the opener.

    I love this song because it's basically a declaration from Billy to the listener of what to expect.

    Yes, he understand what Pumpkins fans have been missing and yes, he is still the person that can provide that to us... so let's ride on with the rest of the album.

    It has a similar message to "Untitled" in that regard in that it's sort of a, "I told you so"...

    General CommentTo me this song is about embracing the aspects of spirituality that resonate with you, whether it's your own intuition or parts of belief systems already in place. I think he's basically saying, whatever you believe, as long as your intention is pure, moving towards positivity, and unselfish, you are "Right On". And he goes to mention the different religious concepts that express that to him. Krishna in Hinduism, Mark in Christianity, Yod He Vau He Om in... Hebrew?? Basically he's saying it's all the same if you have the right connection and intention.
