Lyrically Speaking for Feb 17


iTunes 7 Logo

This week’s musical entry comes to us from the gifted Billy Corgan. Now, he is the front-man for my favorite band The Smashing Pumpkins, but he also put out a solo record two years ago. While it wasn’t the most amazing album ever, there are still some gems on it that have great poetry.

The song Mina Loy, sounds like a cross between wailing guitars and techo-beats. I can’t really explain it but I like how it sounds. The lyrics give the song much more meaning as it reads almost like a story and less like a song. While this isn’t for everyone, perhaps you’ll like it.

From the album TheFutureEmbrace, this is Mina Loy

The siren calls outside
They want to kill us all
Innocents, wounded souls
Full of rage
Nowhere to go
Consequences be they may
I resolve to never change
I so vow to never yield

Can I give my old heart to you?

Cause when this feeling starts
That’s when I blow it all away

“here, you’re born” they’ll say
“to die afraid, to lie awake”

It’s plain the wars have won
The days of judgement rise
For innocents, wounded souls
How could they know?
They’re burning cold
Paranoias be they may
I resolve to never change

Can I give my old heart to you?

Cause when this feeling starts
That’s when I rip it all apart

Alright!
The end’s in sight
We’re born to die
One thousand times

I’m just one wish away
I’m just one wish away from you kid
I’m just one wish away
I’m just one wish away from you kid
I’m not so innocent
I’m not so innocent now kid

Can I give my old heart to you?
My old heart.
