Bullet with Butterfly Wings [by The Smashing Pumpkins]
From the album:



Lyrics:

The world is a vampire
Sent to drain
Secret destroyers
Hold you up to the flames
And what do I get
For my pain
Betrayed desires
And a piece of the game

Even though I know
I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold
Like old job

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Now I'm naked
Nothing but an animal
But can you fake it
For just one more show
And what do you want
I want to change
And what have you got
When you feel the same

Even though I know
I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold
Like old job

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Tell me I'm the only one
Tell me there's no other one
Jesus was an only son
Tell me I'm the chosen one
Jesus was an only son for you

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Tell me I'm the only one
Tell me there's no other one
Jesus was an only son for you

And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
And I still believe that I cannot be saved

Why this song?

I've had this song pop in and out of my head and hadn't heard it for a while, so I figured it would be a good idea to bring it back from the dead, so to speak, and relive the goodness that it is. Finally I'm able to hear a song by The Pumpkins with the original fire that Billy Corgan once possessed (I won't even mention Zwan). Great lyrics, great beat, highly infectious, but also highly satisfying.
