"Glissandra" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
I know that we are young.
And I know you may love me.
But I just can't be with you like this anymore.
Glissandra.

She's got both hands
in her pocket.
And she won't look at you,
Won't look at you

She hides true love
En su bolsillo.
She's got a halo 'around her finger.
Around you.

You know that I love you boy.
Hot like Mexico, rejoice.
At this point I gotta choose,
nothing to loose.

Don't call my name.
Don't call my name, Glissandra.
I'm not your babe.
I'm not your babe, Starla.

Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch.
Just smoke my cigarrette and hush.
Don't call my name.
Don't call my name, Tristessa.

Glissandra.
Glissandra.
Gle-ny-sandra.
Gle-ny-sandra.
(Just stop. Please. Just let me go. Glissandra. Just let me go.)

She's not broken,
She's just a baby.
But her boyfriend's like a dad, just like a dad.
and all those flames that burned before him.
Now he's gonna fight your fight, gonna cool the bad.

You know that I love you boy.
Hot like Mexico, rejoice.
At this point I gotta choose,
nothing to loose

Don't call my name.
Don't call my name, Glissandra.
I'm not your babe.
I'm not your babe, Starla.


Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch.
Just smoke my cigarette and hush.
Don't call my name.
Don't call my name, Tristessa.

Glissandra.
Glissandra.
Gle-ny-sandra.
Gle-ny-sandra. [2x]

Don't bother me.
Don't bother me. Glissandra
Don't call my name.
Don't call my name, Starla.

I'm not your babe.
I'm not your babe, Glissandra.

Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch. Starla.
Don't call my name.
Don't call my name, Glissandra.
I'm not your babe.
I'm not your babe, Starla.

Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch.
Just smoke my cigarette and hush.
Don't call my name.
Don't call my name, Tristessa.

    General Commentwow. no comments. i kinda think it may be the climax of the album, but it doesn't sound that way, the lyrics scream that though.

    Song MeaningIf you look around the album booklet, you'll see a few pictures. Pyramids, a full moon, an Apollo moon lander of some sort, ECT. it looks like this song is where that all comes from. To be honest, i don't think they have anything important to do with the album, except some pretty cool lines. Glissandra REALLY reminds me of Tristessa, the beat and guitars are similar, but it still manages to be completely unique. it feels like this was meant to be the climax of the album, but it doesn't sound that way. the lyrics, however, are out for blood. ambitious. it looks like these lyrics took the longest to make. only a few repeating lines, and no real chorus. it still manages to be a really good addition to the album, and fits right in with all the unique-sounding songs, and different sounds. and... do i spot a Pink Floyd reference..? "..Pipers play for Dawn" huh. Pink Floyds debut album was called "Piper at the Gates of Dawn". tryin' to make yet ANOTHER sneaky Pink Floyd reference, are we, Billy? that's cool, not alot of people are gonna catch it, i guess.
    "Abuse the modern minds, Crushed on what you'll find" i wonder what those last lines mean. it's definitely from the perspective of someone alot more famous than the average person, so i don't think i'll ever understand. Great song, Beautiful melody, great Lyrics, 10/10.

    My Opinionhuh. i wonder why only this song has correct lyrics.. no matter, i'm just glad someone other than me listens to these XD sometimes it feels that way in the world. all the Robots walk around, headphones spewing SHIT into their rotten ears. some people deserve no tongues. i wish more people would recognize this music as the superior. other music is profane, no feeling. just fucking bitches, and auto-tune to hide their lack of talent.
    i'm in a hurry, so i cannot post my interpretation of this song, only my hate for others ;)

    General CommentWell, Glissandra was a cheerful Disney fairey who wore a lot of makeup.


    I have no idea how that really fits into this song though :)

    --

    Seems like the end of a journey that didn't really provide a resolution.


    Iused to know
    What a wish was for

    is the lyric that is repeated over and over. It seems like an admission of confusion.

    However, I can also intrepret it as, In the past he knew what a wish was for, but wishes are foolish and he's gained the knowledge to appreciate the journey rather than wishful desires.


    I’ve been hungry and I’ve been full

    Is another line that is repeated a lot. It kind of shows the full-circleness of the journey.


    I feel like I'm missing something with this one though.
