"God" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
God knows I'm helpless to speak on my own behalf
God is as helpless as me caught in the negatives
We all just do as we please false transmissions
I hope god forgives me for my transgressions

It's what you want to know no consequences
It's what you need to fucking bleed
It's all too much god knows I'm helpless

God know I'm restless and weak and full of piss and vinegar
God knows we sow what we reap in the dirt of grandeur
When the darkness comes to me and fixes its gaze on me
God knows I'm helpless

It's what you want to know no consequences
It's what you need to fucking bleed
It's all too much god knows I'm helpless

You break you're back for what you can't have
You can't turn back
God knows I'm helpless

    General Commentim thinking more of the corruption of his own soul.
    god knows hes helpless, yet he keeps adding trials.
    i dont think its neccesarily blasphemy.
    i just think hes frustrated with life.
    i think its more of a cry out for gods help
    when really he deserves 'to fucking bleed'

    this was one of the first smashing pumpkin songs i ever heard.

    General CommentBlaspheme and confession in the same song... doesn't get much better. Great song...
    "When the darkness comes to me
    And fixes it's gaze on me
    God knows i'm helpless"
    So true... we're all weak.

    General CommentI think its sort of about the corruption of the Church. "I hope God forgives me For my transgressions" is maybe about buying forgiveness, a practice from the Church of the middle ages. "When the darkness comes to me And fixes it's gaze on me" is maybe in reference to the Dominicans and the Inquisition? Or perhaps its just a really angst-y song. That interpretation works as well. Pissed off by the pressure of the Church and Sin and Heaven and Hell.
