Tales Of A Scorched Earth

This song is by The Smashing Pumpkins and appears on the album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995).

Farewell, goodnight
Last one out, turn out the lights and let me be
Let me die inside
Let me know the way through this world of hate in you
'Cause the dye is cast and the bitch is back and we're all dead
Yeah we're all dead
Inside the future of a shattered past, yeah yeah

I lie just to be real and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
'Cause beyond my hopes there are no feelings

Bless the martyrs and kiss the kids for knowing better
For knowing this
'Cause you're all whores and I'm a fag
And I've got no mother and I've got no dad
To save me from the wasted, save me from myself, yeah yeah

I lie just to be real and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
'Cause beyond my hopes there are no feelings

Everybody's lost just waiting to be found
Everybody's a thought just waiting to fade
So fuck it all 'cause I don't care
So what, somehow, somewhere we dared
To try to dare, to dare for a little more, yeah yeah

I lie just to be real and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
'Cause beyond my hopes there are no feelings
