The world is a vampire

Blurred figures  dancing in a clubThe world is a vampire, sent to drain
Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
And what do I get, for my pain?
Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
Even though I know – I suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold – like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Now I’m naked, nothing but an animal
But can you fake it, for just one more show?
And what do you want?
I want to change
And what have you got, when you feel the same?
Even though I know – I suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold – like old job

Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me there’s no other one
Jesus was the only son for you

And I still believe that I cannot be saved
_ Smashing Pumpkins (Bullet With Butterfly Wings, excerpt) _
