"The Sacred and Profane" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Give me tears give me love
Let me rest Lord above
Send the bored your restless
The feedback scarred devotionless

You're all a part of me now
And if I fall
You're all a part of me now
In the sun
You're all a part of me now
You're all a part of me now

Will our love ever be enough?
Just in time to prove
Will our words ever be enough?
Just in time to lose

Give me sight and barren breast
Pure snow and happiness
Give me time, give me peace
And I will prove my release

You're all a part of me now
And if I fall
You're all a part of me now
Trapped in the sun
You're all a part of me now
You're all a part of me now

Will our love ever be enough?
Just in time to prove
Will our time ever be enough?
Will our love ever be enough?

You're all a part of me now
And if I fall
You're all a part of me now
In the sun
You're all a part of me now
You're all a part of me now

You're all a part of me now
And if I fall
You're all a part of me now
In the sun
You're all a part of me now

Will our love ever be enough?
Will our love ever be enough?
Will our love ever be enough?
Just in time to prove

    General Commentsuch a great song...they could turn this whole album into a dark, animation musical...sort of like "The night before christmas..." or even better...having the art of Jhonen Vasquez...i would want that movie...

    General Commenti'm thinking this song has to do with a relationship that's been "settled for"...two people are content with being each other one is "part of me now"...in good times and bad...even though that's not what they want. That's what i see anyway!

    General CommentI agree with rockstar... Having Jhonen do some artwork for this would rock my world. :)

    General CommentIn a way, when I listen to this I think it's to the fans of the Smashing Pumpkins, with this being the last (proper) release. It's like a message to the fans.

    General CommentI can sort of get da77yn. The line "you're all a part of me now", could be to the fans of The Smashing Pumpkins, who have followed them through their career, loved all their songs and know all the lyrics. They understand him through them and so are a part of him in a way.

    General Commentits glass claiming his fans are really part of him (did i mention glass is crazy)

    General CommentNo it's not. His fans are a part of him in the sense that a lot of them relate to the lyrics and find meaning in them, for themselves. In a way, they share this journey with him, emotionally, because they relate. Hence why they are fans.

    I'm not sure what this song is about myself. But the view that it could be a message to his fans is quite plausable. It could be about his fans, yes, or maybe the other band members? I've no idea.
