"Because You Are" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
because you are
because you are
because you are
because you are
because you are

i've got the trauma to stay
because you are
i scar the stranger betray
all of my senses ashamed
i will deny all that i'm afraid
lies will disguise
rules of time and endgames

because you are
because you are
because you are
because you are
because you are

i chew the rust off my face
because you are
i wipe the stain off my haze
because you are
i am released, born of age
because you are
i stare inside empty faith

i will deny all that i'm afraid
lies will disguise
rules of time and endgames
because you are

because you are
because you are
because you are
because you are
rinse the scars off my skin
because you are
i touch the scars of your skin
because you are
i let the travel begin
because you are
i let the travel begin
because you are
i let the travel begin

    My InterpretationPretty sure some of the lyrics here are wrong. That being said, I don't have sound right now and can't listen to the song to decipher.
    I think it's essentially almost a love song - I will do anything for you, even painful or impossible things (as mentioned in the song) - but some of the lyrics and the music itself makes it seem more like an unhealthy relationship or perhaps an obsession and not a real relationship at all. It's definitely a "dark" song.

    General CommentI rather like this song. To me it's about how he refuses to leave a situation just because of another person... sort of sticking it through to spite them.
