I really have no clue what happened to Corgan's lyricism. It reads like poetry by kids who have not read a much wider selection of poetry beyond some Victorian poems they had to read for school, and consequently think that writing poetry means you have to use words like "betwixt," "hath," and "rondure," and the more of these sorts of words you use, the more poetic the poem. And then to fit the measures, there are the "ohs" and some "babies" to fill it out. It's all stuff like:

"Cast into that Plutonian shore
Like dulcet lovers threadbare
Baby, you were there, yeah
Oh, baby, you were there."
