"Pale Horse" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
If I was
I'd turn back
Give up all my reasons
Forget the past

You think I'd swallow
Bearing the weight of the ceilings
Just to stop and [ask?]

Fluorescein
Fluorescein
Fluorescein
Fluorescein

They give you this
They take away that
Fluorescein

They'll be no rallies
They'll be no long last
Empty on the inside
Running out of the last protests
Standing by the feeling of an end

[stowaway or slow away?] [lights or life?]
Runaway [love or life?]

When they lit you up
You shut me out
They gave me the keys so I could show you around
But we were not around
Ominous of a day dream of a cottage [abound?]
Fluorescein
Fluorescein
Fluorescein
Fluorescein

They give you this
They take away that
Fluorescein

They'll be no rallies
They'll be no long last ...
Coming [or cutting?] out of the spotlight
Running out of the last protests
Standing by the feelings of an end

[stowaway or slow away?] [lights or life?]
Runaway [love or life?]

Please come back
Please come back
Please come back, pale horse
Please come back
Please come back
Please come back, pale horse

Please come back
Please come back
Please come back, pale horse

Please come back
Please come back
Please come back, pale horse

    Song Meaningi hate to say this EVERY single song, but this is so beautiful. "Please come back... please come back... Pale Horse.." the background vocals by Nicole are amazing. NO Reliance on power-chords, and REALLY good bass. for some reason, it doesn't sound like Billy's bass playing. Nicole definitely had a lot of influence in this album. it's not ALL Billy, like the other albums. other than that, this is just a REALLY catchy melody.

    Thorazine is used to treat schizophrenia, and other mental disorders. it can also treat explosive, aggressive behavior in children up to age 12. but i've seen the affects of it with my own eyes. is it doing any good? it's very hard to tell. it causes alot of eerie side-affects. "They give you this [Thorazine], they take away that [Possibly your own MIND, or your sanity.]. Thooorraziine..Thorazine."
    that's kind of what i get out of this song. it's got an upbeat to it, but the lyrics are kind of depressing. like 'Today'.

    General CommentAgree with the take on Thorazine and I think that we're out of the "concept" portion fo the album.


    Thorazine is Chlorpromazine ( it is marketed in the U.S. as Thorazine) and is used to treat schizophrenia.

    In old horror movies that featured asylums you'd always have a character that just shuffled around everywhere, but went nowhere... that can be a side effect of Thorazine.

    General CommentThorazine, just like any other drug that is involve in seretonin adjustments, causes the mind of the patient to become less aggresive (mainly used to treat psychosis.) Thus "they give you this(the medication), they take away that(making you void of any feeling)" I can personally relate to the lyrics of this song as I experience the "numbness" that comes with taking antidepressants to take away the emotional torment. I feel almost as if i am engulfed in an apothic cavity/ a walking zombie.
