"Blissed and Gone" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
The sun has blessed
The rays are gone
And all the kids have left their tears and gone home

Sweet 17, sour 29
And I can't explain myself
What I'd hoped to find
You were all so kind
Without her here

And if you're still feeling down
Then maybe you need me around
To love and hold you
Don't say i hadn't told you so
Maybe you need me around

I had no luck
I had no shame
I had no cause, just seventeen days of rain
And you in my eyes

Just one more song to slay this earth
And I can't explain myself just what it's worth
It was all I had, but not all I'd need
And I can't escape the fact that I still bleed

And if you're still feeling down
And if this seems way too loud
Then maybe you need me around

I had no voice
I had no drive
I had no choice
I've done my time
I had myself
Had my band
I had my love
Had no hand in watching it all fall apart

And if you're still feeling down
Then maybe you need me around
To lift and scold you
To send you crashing all right now
Maybe you need me around

    General CommentThis song I believe has to do with the ending of the Smashing Pumpkins.
    "The sun has left, the rays are gone" -We did well, but now it's ending
    "All the kids have left their tears and gone home" -All the people at the last shows were upset (tears) but now they are going about life again (gone home)
    "You were all so kind when I was near" -Talking about how nice and personable the fans are/were
    "If you're still feeling down then maybe you need me around" -Being upset and putting on your fav Pumpkins cd
    "Just one more song to slay this earth and I can't explain myself just what it's worth" -Even at the last show, it would be hard to not keep playing, at some point it must end and it will be very sad for him
    "I had no hand in watching it all fall apart" -Referencing how his bandmates wanted it to end even though the band was all he wanted.

    Perhaps the song brings in so many details of what happened during the downfall of the band and this is kind of his way of coping with the reality that all he ever wanted was this band and no matter what he did, it is falling apart arund him. poor billy... :(
