“1979” by The Smashing Pumpkins

“And we don’t know just where our bones will rest, to dust I guess, forgotten and absorbed into the earth below.”

On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet

Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we’d never see an end to it all

And I don’t even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

Double-cross the vacant and the bored
They’re not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slipping dues down to see

Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we’d go
Beneath the sound of hope

Justine never knew the rules,
Hung down with the freaks and ghouls
No apologies ever need be made

to see

That we don’t even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

The street heats the urgency of now
As you see there’s no one around

Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘1979’ is still the greatest music video of all time

Another Round: The Smashing Pumpkins – “1979”

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
