"I'm Ready" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
I'm ready, oh Lord I'm ready
I'm ready ready ready to roll
Ready to leave
I'm ready, oh lord I'm steady now
I'm ready ready ready to flee
Ready to turn

It's your fascination I could live without
Too much information leaves my heart in doubt
Oh lord I'm ready now
I'm ready ready ready to know
Ready to learn

Push the world away from your life
Cast away the pearls that bring their swine to us
Whatever shatters light has no right

Conversations spill your will
Conversations I can't feel
I'm ready
I'm ready

I'm ready
Oh Lord I'm patient now
Whoever I was wanting to be
I already am

Tell me alienation hasn't found you out
Too few condemnations fill your heart with doubt

Oh Lord I'm ready now
Oh Lord I'm ready
Oh Lord I'm ready now
I'm ready to throw away the world from your life
Cast away the pearls that bring their swine to us
Whatever shatters light has no right

Conversations say you will
Conversations I can't feel
I'm ready
I'm ready

Conversations spill your will
Conversations they can't steal
I'm ready
Ready for love
I'm ready
Ready for love
I'm ready
Ready for love
I'm ready

    General CommentDefinitly my least favourite of the album, the chorus is actually annoying.. too repetative :[ I tried to enjoy it live too.. but no just doesn't do it for me sadly.

    General Commentit sounds a bit like what spongebob keeps singing 'i'm ready, i'm ready' but i can enjoy this song when i dont really listen to the lyrics and when i'm in the right mood for it.

    General CommentMy favorite part of the song is at the very beginning, where the main rhythym starts to play, and you can hear those faint "dings" in the backround.

    General CommentI like it where he says,
    "Tell me alienation hasn’t found you out
    Too few condemnations fill your heart with doubt"

    It's like you're about to change a lot of things in your life, even though it's going to hurt - because you know it's the right thing to do. It's about the realization that you are ready to do it.

    I think sonically, the focal point is in the percussion, not the melody. He does alot of inventive things with the beat patterns and timbre of percussion in this track. It's really nice when you notice it. I've had the album for a year and I just picked up on it. A typical thing for me with his music.

    lyrics correx:
    It’s your fascination I could live without,
    too much information leaves the heart no doubt.

    -as opposed to "leaves my heart in doubt"
