"Lucky 13" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
It's in blood
I suppose
Breaking jars
I'm no good
As the prodigal son

And I know that you're mesmerized
You had a vision, made these laws
And sanitized, are we above desires
I miss him so

You are so fucked
It has begun
Revolution crawls
All over you
I was listening

You light up the sky
And scrape out your skull
Your lovely face
Will never be claimed thrice

And we're so unlikely to
Upon my wrists I bear the cross
My losses mount as I climb across the home
Of my own soul

I'll claim my prize
I don't exist
I am divine
A ghost with eyes

    General CommentI have a theory that this is the lyrical & musical sequel to one of there earlier singles, I Am One, but considering it came from me, it's probably not right. Oh well, I still think it's a kick-ass song from an equally kick-ass album!

    General CommentAfter an exhausting process to find out what the name of this song was (I heard it on the Greatest Hits DVD), I finally found it. This song does fucking rock! What album is this on? And where are all the other people who should be posting about this song?!

    General Comment'I don't exist'

    That's clearly not what Billy's singing, although what he is singing I have no idea.

    General CommentIt honestly reminds me of a revolution. In the revolution he looses his friend or brother, or maybe father. He becomes a brutal dictator and is then attempted to be overthrown. The brutal dictator then goes in hiding. While typing this I just thought about South America. Huh.

    General CommentThis song is perfectly edgy. Probably one of their edgiest songs.
