The Smashing Pumpkins – The Everlasting Gaze Lyrics 12 years ago
Omg im reading yout interpretations and i can't help to think that this song is absolutely not about god, his fans, the music industry and sh*t

Here it goes, my own interpretation, and I believe it to be bether than any of those above:

The song is about love. As usual. Particularly about the desire to love.

The thing that is given voice in this song is the desire to open one's self soul to another and give in to another love adventure, yet this feeling is repressed, and it's telling that it'll never die, until cruel death hits it's owner

now you know where i've been
as you sleep, torn i am
wear you down
patiently
born of love

it lurks, patiently, it is born out of love

forgotten touch
forbidden thought
we can never have enough

this thing tells that it cannot be hold back for long

forever waiting
on the ways of your desire
you always find your way
and thru it all, into us all you move

this basic desire to give in to love and open one'self soul to another is inherent to every human being, and billy basicaly tells that he tried to deny this feeling, based perhaps on a bad previous experience, but in the end, it will never die

the everlasting gaze ultimately means being in love, surrendering to love and it's ilusions, and the song tells that we all want that, to be enchanted in the rapture of his sentimental sway, but he the author is in fact repressing his feelings

The Smashing Pumpkins – With Every Light Lyrics 12 years ago
I belive this song in fact it's about finaly, after a long period of time, losing his fear to fall in love again.

Taking over, we're taking over
Throw the weight up off your shoulders now
That we can show our love

It's almost over, it's almost over
No more war and no more soldiers
To stand against his love

He tells that his internal conflict it's over, maybe it's time to show his love again

Away with all the troubles that you've made
Away with waiting for another day
Away

No more excuses, no more postponing, you're falling in love again, and it's now.

The rest of the song is realy about being happy that he doesn't have to be bitter and shut himself off to everyone anymore, and it's liberating.

The Smashing Pumpkins – Heavy Metal Machine Lyrics 12 years ago
I heard this songs so many times when i was young, but now it strikes me the meaning and beauty of this song.

It's actualy simple, when you look at it.

The heavy metal machine is a box in wich his heart(his emotions) are encased, and it's a machine in the sence that it's artificial, and the author gives inteligence to it, so it can speak and express itself.

if i were alive
if i were real
would you survive
what would you feel

if this machine would exist, would it be possible to live?

let me die for rock and roll
let me die to save so soul
let me die, let me die rock and roll
let the world forgive the past
let all the girls kiss the boys at last
let me go, let me go rock and roll

if the author truly could shut out his emotions and let this machine live, could he be able to write good music? let the machine die for the music, so that his soul wont become bitter

if i were dead
would my records sell
could you even tell
is it just as well

I believe he insults his fans in these verses, he again thinks about the possibility to make music without emotion, if this machine around his heart were dead, would his records sell more? Or maybe not, maybe no one would notice the difference, and it would be as well

will i survive
is it up to me
could you understand
that it's not yours to keep

maybe he's trying to say in these verses that he's considering about building this machine, this heart and emotion encasing box, but in the end it's not realy up to him, because his heart is no longer his, it belongs to someone else, but this part isin't quite clear to me

hope i've shed some light, i realy love this one

Billy Corgan – Now (and Then) Lyrics 16 years ago
when i read the line "I’ll watch you making love with them" it al made sence to me

it's about him and this girl, and he loves her, but she doesn't feel the same way, so he resigns to be her friend, and she tells him about everything, including the men she sleeps with, and he loves her so much that he does not care, he just wants to be next to her, even thou hes life is all f*cked up already

The Smashing Pumpkins – Real Love Lyrics 16 years ago
beautiful song, i particularly identify myself with this one and a lot of others from billy corgan

fall into the century on a supersonic cross
blessed she in aching silence, eternal loss

i guess the turn of the century means a new era, means changes, hes loosing her, thats why eternal loss

calling out i won't surrender a locket of her hair
sympathize her pious pleasures, go down the stairs

he wants something to remember her, he wont surrender a locket of her hair cuz it is all he has to remind her, the second line is about how he attended to her every wishes and now he wont anymore

into the dark again
to feel alive again, and wait for

real love
or is it me you're after
is it time
cause it's now or never
real love
real love forever
real love

hes living her and he must find real love, and giving her a last chance, is it me your after, cuz its now or never etc...

in the eyes, behold and you'll find the 21st century
detonate her will and her widowed speech

this is again about changing and how he will not take her bullsh*t anymore

buried in the backyard shadow, the rusty coffee tin
that held her mother's first kiss in a nameless dream
fall down the stairs again
to feel alive against tomorrow

this is one part of the song i cant really understand, can someone help me? in the end he tells again e needs to leave her and feel alive again

real love
or is it me you're after
is it time
cause it's now or never
real love
real love forever
is it love
or just yours to treasure
real love
real love
real love

then again he asks her if she realy loves him and
wants to stay with him

we never listen
real love will listen
and tell of a fortune
real love is riches
scratch through the changes
real love is nameless
so tired and hopeless
real love is painless
nobody mentions
we ever move to collect
the solar questions
demon scorn should not relax
the laws of gravity

real love

here he tells what he thinks that real love should be and maybe why he doenst think he and she have real love

in the end this song is about a man leaving a woman and giving her a last chance to prove her "real" love, or is it something unreal what they have
