Man, why do people even bother hitting the Submit Reply button when they 'come up' with this shit? I blame tv for the decline in imagination amongst kids today.

The song is called "Bullet With Butterfly Wings". It is by The Smashing Pumpkins. It is off of the album entitled Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness. It is 4 minutes and 17 seconds long. There is an acoustic demo on the bootleg MCIS Demos I. It is 4 minutes and 30 seconds long. That is longer than the finished version. There is an electric demo on the bootleg Billy's Gravity Demos. That version is 3 minutes and 55 seconds long. There is a single for BWBW (Bullet With Butterfly Wings). That single contains the songs "Bulltet With Butterfly Wings" and "...Said Sadly". If you buy TAFH (The Aeroplane Flies High) boxset you will get five singles (Bullet With Butterfly Wings, 1979, Zero, Tonight, Tonight, and Thirty-Three). This version of the BWBW single is different. It has the tracks "Bullet With Butterfly Wings", "...Said Sadly", "You're All I've Got Tonight", "Clones (We're All)", "A Night Like This", "Destination Unknown", and "Dreaming". This is preferred version of the single to have. BWBW can also be found on the 7" US single for the song "1979" (which you also might've heard on your radio). That single contains the songs "1979" and "Bullet WIth Butterfly Wings". BWBW may also be found on various promos that I don't feel like listing. BWBW was play live 331 times. Its first time played live was on March 3rd of 1994 at Palmer Auditorium in Davenport, Iowa (that is a state in the country known as The United States Of America).

Billy had this to say about the song: "Believe it or not, the original riff from this song came to me during one of the Siamese Dream recording sessions. Somewhere, I have a tape of us from 1993 endlessly playing the 'world is a vampire' part over and over. But it wasn't until a year and a half later that I finished the song, writing the 'rat in the cage' part on an acoustic guitar at the BBC studios in London on the same day that 'Landslide' was recorded." That is from the Guitar World magazine published in January of the year 1997.

These are the lyrics to BWBW (also commonly known as "Bullet":
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 wanna 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
Yeah, 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
