"Czarina" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Sipping Tea
Let the rivers pass me by
These dusty tears
Need no place to cry

I need no reason for the first time in my life
I just need to be on my way
I don't want for anything that I don't have
All I want is waiting for me there for me there

With my Czarina queen of all that I breathe
Still born seasons cradle our affairs
I light a candle
My lover to protect
And seclaw the ashes
My lover will descend

I need no reason for the first time in my life
I just need to be on my way
I don't want for anything that I don't have
All I want is waiting for me there
I don't want for anything that I don't have
All I want is waiting for me there for me there

And behind your walls
I waste the day
If I want
All this and more are under me

I need no reason for the first time in my life
I just need to be on my way
I don't want for anything that I don't have
All I want is waiting for me there
I don't want for anything that I don't have
All I want is waiting for me there
For me there
For me there

    General CommentI think this is a song about losing someone very close to you.. (note: Pulseczar) We all need to move on.. but we need to dwell first.

    General CommentI think that this is a straightforward love song. The phrase "dusty tears" refers to Billy not crying because he's found love. "All I need is waiting for me there" means that he can simply go to his girlfriend and everything will be OK again, etc. etc.

    General CommentThis one is definately about his love for Yelena. Think about it. Czerina means Russian princess, and Yelena is from Ukraine, sister country of Russia.
    Yeah!
    Beautiful song.

    General Commentthis song reminds a lot of the book We The Living by Ayn Rand. It is about a girl in communist russia and she thinks that things were better before,when the czar was still around. in the book she falls in love really hard with a guy who is also against communism and they try to sneak out of the country together. but they dont make it and they eventually split up. at the end of the book the main character is leaving the country without a real reson other than to get away and she feels like something is waiting for her abroad. see the similarities?

    General CommentLol
    "In sackcloth and ashes my lover will descend"
    meaning she'll regret leaving him. Probably.

    General CommentThe song is a bside to adore. The part bout in sack cloth and ashes I am fairly sure is about losing his mother.
