Bullet with Butterfly Wings
by Smashing Pumpkins



The 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 game

Even though I know
I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold
Like I'm told

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?
What do you want?
I want to change
What have you got,
When you feel the same?

Even though I know
I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold
Like I'm told

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

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

Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage
And someone will say what is lost will never be saved
Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage

Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a-
Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a-
Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage

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 can not be saved
And I still believe that I can not be saved
And I still believe that I can not be saved
And I still believe that I can not be saved
