THE SMASHING PUMPKINS : THE END IS THE BEGINNING IS THE END [1997]

Το τραγούδι των Smashing Pumpkins για το soundtrack της ταινίας Batman & Robin του 1997. Το έχουμε ξαναπεί με άλλη ευκαιρία : όπως αποδείχτηκε, το εσχατολογικό “pre millennium tension” που χαρακτήρισε όλη τη δεκαετία των 90s, ήταν τελικά μια προαίσθηση.

The
Smashing Pumpkins’ contribution to the soundtrack of the film Batman & Robin, 1997.
We have said it before, on another occasion : as it turned out, the eschatological “pre millennium tension” which characterized the entire ‘90s decade, turned out to be a
premonition.

Send a heartbeat to
The void that cries through you
Relive the pictures that have come to pass
For now we stand alone
The world is lost and blown
And we are flesh and blood disintegrate
With no more to hate
Is it bright where you are
Now the people changed?
Does it make you happy, you’re so strange?
And in your darkest hour
I hold secret’s flame
We can watch the world devoured in its pain
Delivered from the blast
The last of a line of lasts
The pale princess of a palace cracked
And now the kingdom comes
Crashing down undone
And I am a master of a nothing place
Of recoil and grace
Is it bright where you are
Now the people changed?
Does it make you happy, you’re so strange?
And in your darkest hour
When I hold secret’s flame
We can watch the world devoured in its pain
Time has stopped before us
The sky cannot ignore us
No one can separate us
For we are all that is left
The echo bounces off me
The shadow lost beside me
There’s no more need to pretend
‘Cause now I can begin again
Is it bright where you are
Now the people changed?
Does it make you happy, you’re so strange?
And in your darkest hour
I hold secret’s flame
We can watch the world devoured in its pain
Strange
Strange
Strange

    That was pretty good. I know the Smashing Pumpkins, but never gave them a fair listen.
    It’s crazy how much prejudice is involved with listening to music.
    For all the music I’ve listened to in my life, I feel I’m just beginning to open my ears, mind and heart.

      I never was a Smashing Pumpkins’s fan, I just dig some of their songs like this one. Above all I can’t stand Billy Corgan’s voice [nor his face, to tell the truth😊]

        Lolol! At least you listen, and can say there’s a couple of songs I like.
