"My Mistake" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
we're so young
and we're so dumb
we don't register calculations
and if you dare
and should i care
i could destroy you
and take you there

as the spitfires begin their descent
and tragic romantic ascent
my love is one hundred percent

come back to me, my mistake
come back to me, my mistake
come back to me, my mistake
mistake, it was all my mistake

so suck me through
your saliva screws
and i can't help myself if i don't know
the flaws in you
that were equal to
the mysteries of almost knew

and i've said this so many, many times
can't help you out of your mind
so please don't judge me a time

come back to me, my mistake
come back to me, my mistake
come back to me, my mistake

and if you pretend
please try to offend everyone

we share the same monkey disease
so give me my grape of peace
and do what you want as you please

come back to me, my mistake
come back to me, my mistake
come back to me, my mistake

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. I think it's about a couple breaking up and the guy/girl thinks about the mistake they've made

    General CommentThis song is about cheating, and winding up giving yourself and your partner AIDS in the process. "We share the same monkey disease" can't really mean much else. It's a weird situation he's trying to talk through. Obviously, the stakes are way higher than simply "I cheated and it was wrong."
