Only to clock in and start earning.

I'm pretty sure the end result of all those lawsuits was that The Smashing Pumpkins became a corporate entity of one Willy J Gorgan

Fuckin' thing sucks. I'm guessing Billy's dancers were happy for the gig- covid has hit strippers hard.

Wytchh has an insufferable way of singing, ...the only thing i like is the uuuuhhhh part and that is 5 seconds.
Yeah we got guitars, but the song is one of the worst in the last decade.

is not BC's current lyrical prose that of 18th century?

B'arcy Cyrgan to 18th century poet on IG: Thine whorls be vexed into heavenswrath on shallow eves day. Thou doth adore prose of yesteryear.

18th century poet: *zombie gif*

The funniest part of Corgan’s pretentious word vomit and how superficially he understands “things” is how he couldn’t even be bothered to say Samhain correctly

Meh video, meh song

Bit more PG-13 imagery than I was expecting out of it, but whatever. I'd say that Covid played a part in how slapped-together it feels, but Ramona at least looked like some effort went into it.

Also for the record, SP's videos all kinda fell off after Ava Adore and Perfect. The reaction I remember Try Try Try getting was "Tacky gross garbage that's unpleasant to behold". Junkies etc.

I could listen to some of the new songs if the lyrics weren't so pointless and impossible to connect with. What's next? A song describing the colors of various new age necklace crystals? I could almost imagine the lyrics to this new song being buried inside of a death metal song. But this isn't death metal and nobody is going to get fucked up and zone out to this

This would make just as much sense:


Rose quartz, rose quartz
Hang from necklace of mine
All feminine
Rose quartz, rose quartz
Under chin, a pink star
Love, lie with thee
Ethos align
Rose quartz, rose quartz
Wear thee now, vail with calm
The tension wanes
On heart chakra
Pink turns forever turns to ease
Pink turns together turns to keep
Hey!
Come call, Crystal heart
Start the calls Persephone
Strike up the lightness
Singe forth calm peace
We'll follow under
Rose quartz, rose quartz
Awaken peace in neck chakra
Love, lie with thee
Rose quartz, rose quartz
Gifting calm that i'd spoilt
To love and peace
Love, lie with thee
Pink turns forever turns to ease
Pink turns together turns to keep
Hey!
Come call, Crystal heart
Start the calls Persephone
Strike up the lightness
Pink turns forever turns to ease
Pink turns together turns to keep
Pink turns forever turns to ease
Pink turns together turns to keep
Hey!
Come call, Crystal Heart

there's been a slow progression of his lyrics from often vague but engrossing stories, to excessively wordy descriptions of esoteric miscellany.

Disarm is pretty straight forward. Hits home especially for people who have suffered depression or abuse. The lyrics roll along with the melody and convey a lot of emotion. It's a brilliant song.

Disarm you with a smile
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
What's a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love, I send this smile over to you

Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one who's left alone
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my voice
What's a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love, I send this smile over to you


Three decades later you have Cyr. What even is this? It's beyond obtuse. Much of the newer music is especially unapproachable in this way. This is extreme word salad of a degree that it either means nothing or it's some kind of secret code that only bill can decipher:



Fragments form the minds
Shadows hold the mist
Fractured as this wish
Shattered I resign
We're on the verge, we're on the verge
Of sacred dawning and sloe-sloe eyes
Say, I done told you (ah)
Say how I tried, too
Where you've wrought from creation's crown
Say, dire warning
Stare down your masters
With the promise of one and what you are
We're on the verge
Tangents vex the whorl
The void arrives, then leaves
Returning, returning a kiss
For lovers built the dream
Say, I done told you
Say how I tried, too
Where you've wrought from creation's crown
Say, dire warning
Stare down your masters
With the promise of one and what you are
We're on the verge
Did the times, wind
Did the crowd, kind
Aping youth, wise
Ever lost, ides
'Midst the chaff, as meek
And those weak, as sand…

It's just surreal writing. He writes down whatever comes to mind.

Yeah, but when most people write like that they figure out the theme coming out of them and try to refine it to be poignant

I ran the algorithm from The Bible Code on the Cyr lyrics, and discovered a hidden message that may explain something:


Fragments form the minds
Shadows hold the mist
Fractured as this wish
Shattered I resign
We're on the verge, we're on the verge
Of sacred dawning and sloe-sloe eyes
Say, I done told you (ah)
Say how I tried, too
Where you've wrought from creation's crown
Say, dire warning
Stare down your masters
With the promise of one and what you are
We're on the verge
Tangents vex the whorl
The void arrives, then leaves
Returning, returning a kiss
For lovers built the dream
Say, I done told you
Say how I tried, too
Where you've wrought from creation's crown
Say, dire warning
Stare down your masters
With the promise of one and what you are
We're on the verge
Did the times, wind
Did the crowd, kind
Aping youth, wise
Ever lost, ides
'Midst the chaff, as meek
And those weak, as sand
Turning glass upside down
For the hours should they pass
Say,I done told you
Say how I tried, too (ah)
Where you've wrought (where you've wrought, where you've wrought)
From creation's crown (ah ah)
We're on the verge
Say, dire warning
Stare down your masters
With the promise of one and what you are (what you are, what you are)
We're on the verge
We're on the verge
We're on the verge
We're on the verge

Fragment to create ideas
Shadows make the fog disappear
Such a wish was broken
Broken, i resigned
We are on the field we are on the field
Divine dawn and dazzling eyes
I told you I told you
Tell me how i tried
Create your crown of creation
Said terrible warning
See your master
Take a promise with you
We are on the field
Tornado Tangent Excitement
Arrived for Holi, then left
Back kiss
Designed for dream lovers
I said I already told you
Tell me how i tried
Create your crown of creation
Said terrible warning
See your master
Take a promise with you
We are on the field
But many times, the wind
But people, friendly
Young athens, smart
Walk when lost
Like a gentleman in the middle of the palace
And those like sand...
