The End is the Beginning is The End By Smashing Pumpkins

The sewers belch me up
The heavens spit me out
From Ether's tragic I am born again
And now I'm with you now
Inside your world of wow
To move in desires made of deadly pretends
Till the end times begin
Is it bright where you are
Have the people changed
Does it make you happy you're so strange
And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame
You can watch the world devoured in it's pain
Strange
Climb my ribcage to
The replays run for you
Unhook my lights to peek behind the flash
For I am crystal chrome
I am shatter dome
I am Kremlin king of angels avenged
To destroy the end
Is it bright where you are
Have the people changed
Does it make you happy you're so strange
And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame
You can watch the world devoured in it's pain
The zeppelins rain upon us
The guns of love disastrous
A shadow lies amongst you
To defy the future cast
Is it bright where you are
Have the people changed
Does it make you happy you're so strange
And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame
You can watch the world devoured in it's pain
Strange
Strange

Well that was 5 minutes and 12 seconds of excruciating pain. Not sure how anyone could willingly listen to that and find pleasure in it. I do however like the line "climb my ribcage". I always wanted to shrink my body down to the size of an ant. And climbing a ribcage would be fun. Especially to the dead skeleton of the dude who wrote that song

Ok to be fair, this song was for the soundtrack for the Batman & Robin film

Arguably one of the worst films ever made, so this song was cursed to begin with

And yes, it's not their best effort by any stretch

I understand the sentiment and yes it's bleak

However, in their window of worth, The Smashing Pumpkins put out some good music

It was a rather small window, but a window nonetheless

I went to a concert where the Pumpkins were the opening band and unheard of at the time

Their set was ok, but at the end, the singer just full on dived into the drum set - it was a great finale
