"Obscured" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Lost your head, now you sleep on the floor
What you said, I don't want anymore
Through the haze, make your eyes up to ache
Out in space, days away

Through these eyes
I rely on all I've seen
Through these eyes
It looks like I'm home tonight

Left for dead as you sweep out the cold
Things we said we don't need anymore
Tale inside her like a fallen kite
Hey, hey, yeah

Through these eyes
I deny on all I see
Through these eyes
It looks like I'm home tonight

What you said made a mess of me
What you said, I don't want

    General Commentthis song is the reason i created an account here. ten years ago i was one of the biggest pumpkin heads in my area.. and i have never heard this song. i agree with what mostly everyone says. it is sad that this song has been so overlooked because it is indeed a beautiful song with great lyrics and music.. then again, could we expect any less from this band? as for the emotions this song creates for me, its quite relaxing in its own dismal way. even though life through his eyes seems obscured, every end leads way to new beginnings. this song seems like the end before his new beginning.

    General Commenti don't understand what the lyrics at all, but i don't really care either. listening to this song alone triggers a lot of emotions in me, and reminds me of past memories. it's strange. but i almost feel like if i understood what the words meant, it would ruin the song for me.

    General CommentSounds like Bolly's lost in this song and that he's made a mess of things and he just wants to fix 'em

    General CommentI love this song...it is my favourite Smashing Pumpkins song at the moment.

    I think it's about Billy running away from a situation with a lover and is also in denial...not wanting to believe some hurtful things

    General Commenti never thought about it that way....

    it could be taht billy's made a mess with his family and he'd only like to come home and fix it but things that have been said can't be fixed and feelings are obscured

    General CommentI love this song, it gives me that deep feeling of emotion. I think how "I rely on all I see," and "I deny on all I see" contradict it means he wasn't sure of what he was doing and everything around him seemed obscurred.

    General CommentIts sad that this song has been overlooked, as it is in the top three best songs on PI. It seems to me this song is about a lost soul who's taken to sleeping on his ex's floor because times are hard, and no one really wants to know him, and his only support comes from someone he mistreated, and finds himself falling in love again.

    General CommentTo me this seems like the time in which you know a relationship is ending, and you can't exactly picture life without it, but the momentum is such that you can't fix anything. "Obscured' seems to be the emphasis because he is relying on denial, things are too painful to be seen clearly. I always thought of a car going off a cliff- a scene from like a seventies movie where it guns it and then just hangs in the air as it falls.
