"Frail and Bedazzled" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Say, now listen here
I want to be oh so clear
I lost my soul, lost I'll stay
Between your hands and my beliefs
And here I am, frail
Frail and bedazzled from all the glare

Tug at my sleeve
My little girl, super maid
She don't know that I have stole my smile from a Cheshire cat
And all I wanted was to be a man
Since I gave up
I feel free
I feel free
I feel free
I feel free

The two of us, that's dangerous
It's all inside our heads
Givin' in for nothin' less
Leavin' me for him

Try to understand
The ones that love
And their demands
It's so unfair
When they can't see
That I'm the boy
Who really needs
Their love,
I suppose

Frail and bedazzled from all the
Frail and bedazzled from all the
Frail and bedazzled from all the glare

    General CommentI reckon it's about a rocky relationship, and he's acting like he doesn't dislike the relatonship yet deep down he dies.

    General CommentYeah, all the above - it's upon his gradual adjustment to local fame, that girls he tries to date are all too giving, and in kind, forcing him to, in his own mind, be the controlling ogre. He hates that concept, but he admits he's still frail and bedazzled from all the "glare" (of popularity). It was all too confusing at the time, and it was impacting the normal course of his personal relationships

    General CommentThis song is inredible.

    And all I wanted
    Was to be a man
    And since I gave up
    I feel free

    Like there's no point living for other people's expectations.

    My InterpretationSo few comments on this awesome track!? So simple, but so powerful (love the ending!.

    I think it certainly has to do with some sort of relationship where the character is dealing with fame and love simultaneously, while having to put on a face (e.g. "Stole my smile/from a cheshire cat") to "please" both parties--though the character is unsure/tried (or "frail") of his persona and willing to mask (or "bedazzle") it until he finds confidence in himself and the very different entities he is apart of.

    General CommentIs the last line in the first stanza "plans" or "hands?" I always heard it as "plans," which would go along with the passive aggressive tone of the lyrics.
