(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

I need a one-way
A one-way sign
Fagin's prophets on Aesop's ride
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Like templar thieves
Well, you've had me
A buck so sweet (sweet)
You've spoilt the fray

Which of these dauphins can set you free?
From flaming youth to token army

But give me anodyne
Or give me pandrogynes
I'll take home a hidden
A hidden sun
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh)
(A hidden sun)
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

In lieu of morphine (morphine)
Come eminence
I'm stuck with blunt force (blunt force), and Morpheus

(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Oh, Chiron cleave where you've had me
On pain of love I'd shattered sweet

Which of these dauphins can set you free?
From flaming youth to token army

But give me anodyne
Or give me pandrogynes (one way)
I'll take home a hidden sun
(Sun)
But give me anodyne (dauphine)
Or give me pandrogynes (one day)
I'll take home a hidden sun
I'll take home a hidden sun

    General CommentAmazing song...seems to be about being ...well...lost.Inside. I believe it morphed from Billy's song 'Death of a Mind' when he was in The Marked...not positive,but I'm fairly sure. Anyways,gorgeous song...really gives that sense of being clouded in fog and trying to find a way out, but being unable to...stumbling blindly in the darkness and being so very numb. Gorgeous.

    General CommentSupposedly, this song was first written when the Smashing Pumpkins formed. I can't find it anywhere, though...

    General Commentyeah...very early song...i got a version that they played at the metro club in chicago(live,i guess)...its intitled Sun[cut]...the sound is not that good, but nonetheless is gives some shivers inside when I hear it...
    obviously the meaning is, as crimsoncrushedrose said, feeling empty and having no idea where to turn to, since something dark has happen to him

    General CommentIt's off the The Smashing Pumpkins Demo Tape.
    This is one of my favorite pre-Gish demos.
    I agree with everyone's interpretation of the lyrics.

    I just think it's about when you are in a depressive state, you are lost and trying to find some purpose in your life because you feel so numb.

    General CommentWasn't that hard to find.. I found both the live and the studio (recorded version) where the audio is just fine.. the guitar effect is amazing.. so haunting.. I love the lyric "Lost I go into your hiding room" Though I always thought he said "Must I go into your hiding room?" Which kinda gives it a even darker meaning and a little more depth..
