"Jupiter's Lament" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Gone, long gone
We can all be gone, gone, gone
Leave this world all wrong, wrong, wrong
Leave it far behind
And although my secret's gone
I'll try to carry on
If I must, I'll get along without you
Gone, long gone
Leave this world all wrong, wrong, wrong
Beyond the pale and dawn
Free these mortal bonds
No one knows I can't be wrong
Still l sing the same old song
I tried to be strong for you
Why have you left me?
Amongst the tall trees
I know I gave her all I had
And I tied her heart in ribbons
And I tied her heart in ribbons
I tied her heart in ribbons and bows
And I'm gone
Oh yes, I'm gone
And I'm lost without you
I'm lost within you
And I'm gone, so gone, long gone

    General CommentI remember listening to this song a lot in the days following my dog's death when I was about 12 years old. Great song.

    General CommentThis song would have made an excellent addition to Mellon Collie. As a quite, acoustic song that is as heart-wrenching as it is beautiful, I believe that it would have been an ideal emotional stepping stone between the rage and desperation of "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" and the emptiness and jaded melancholy of "To Forgive." It was certainly better than James' "Take Me Down," which, although was a decent song in its own right, didn't deserve a place among the masterpieces Billy wrote.

    General Commenti really cant believe theres only four comments. this is one of my favorite pumpkins songs. and every time i play it for someone. theyre always like. wow this isnt what i expected?? i think people are so used to pumpkins and the zero or bullet with butterfly wings, that they really dont notice the beautiful things. but then again im a sucker for the unnoticed.

    General CommentA perfect eulogy.

    Thankfully sung before Corgan got unbearably whiney...

    General CommentThis song is beautiful like pretty much the entire "Tonite, Tonite" disc on The Aeroplane Flies High. Today, I was feeling depressed and angry, and then I popped that disc in, hoping for some relief, and all of my pain ebbed away as I listened to this disc. This song, along with the rest, basically made my day, although this song was personally my favorite.
