    Whoa. I just wanted to see what the new Smashing Pumpkins song was like. This imagery, though... Trauma-based mind control, Masonic black and white tiles, that fountain of black water like a Satanic baptismal font, the hand of God in chains on the jacket, the dancing white rabbit... "Become the owl at midnight"?... Owls are known as symbols of darkness and sin since they "only come out night". "Tear down the sun"-- or is it "Tear down the Son", as in Jesus?... "I am nothing but a body in my mind"? Why, Billy? Because you sold your soul to the devil?

    Really wish D'arcy and Billy would work their shit out. She's an essential part of the band.

    What the heck is up with Billy and the whole "head vampire" theme. I'm a huge fan, but this part of him spooks me a bit.

    Oh how I laugh, there's now a lot of 40+ year old people saying "This is showing those youngsters how rock is done" which is exactly what our parents generation were saying when ACDC released something in the 90s... Oh sweet sweet irony... no? totally missed on you? Call Picard we need a facepalm. Props to Billy for acting, the expressions are brilliant - especially the imaginary baby reaction. I'm wondering how much is a view that the subculture brigade (who cling to being sooooo unique, despite all looking the same and not having changed in the last 30 years) being absolutely no different to the mainstream - they still have babies, still do nothing but watch tv, still do the same daily bullcrap routine. So how exactly are we alt-culture?

    I understand nothing but It's pretty cool. I don't like interpretation though, probably because I'm not good at it, but it seems similar to a person trying to guess somebody's explanation of something without knowing the other person. But top comment is definitely a huge fan and I've only been listening for like 6 months so I don't know as much about the band as I would about System Of A Down for example.

    Young Billy Corgan would kill himself if he could hear smashing pumpkins 2018. Im fucking serious. I could have wrote a better song when I was 12. But when i was 12 music was still good, and garbage like this never saw the light of day.

    This song is played at CHOM 97.7 all the time... There was a time, where I caught this tune every time, when I started my car. A strange tune after spending some times with Q107 in the GTA, where they rather played Heart, The hip and Super tramp. Now the song is even more strange with the video.

    Burn down the sun
    I’m not everyone
    High and dry
    Nothing but a body in my mind
    I’m here to stay
    They're here today
    High and dry
    Nothing but a body in my mind
    I’m nothing but a body in my mind
    I feel that something ain’t right
    No fear but reasons that I can’t cite
    Tear down the sun
    Bring down the sun
    I’m not everyone
    I’m not everyone
    I’m not everyone
    Unholy sin
    Unholy fate
    High and dry
    Nothing but a body in my mind
    I’m left to ash
    They're here but past
    High and dry
    Nothing but a body in my mind
    I am nothing but a body in my mind

    I feel that something ain’t right
    No fear but reasons that I can’t cite
    Tear down the sun
    Bring down the sun
    I'm not everyone
    I'm not everyone
    I'm not everyone
    Burn down the sun
    Come on, get yourself together
    Become the owl at midnight
    I am the seer, I am the seeker
    Become the one that fights you
    Become the one that fights you
    Become the owl at midnight
    Become the owl at midnight
    High and dry
    I'm ash made time
    With sun, too bright
    I am nothing but a body in my mind
    I am nothing but a body in my mind

    Tear down the sun
    Bring down the sun
    I’m not everyone
    I’m not everyone
    Burn down the sun

    I think it's about Billy trying to do his own thing after becoming famous from his past and when he tried all he got was resistance for doing what he did his whole life.

    I was never much of a SP fan back in the day, but Wow!, this song is so good - I love the main hook. I just listened to this and the other new track "Silvery Sometimes". I really like them both, would happily buy a new album if one is coming out with these two tracks on it.

    And Corgen is STILL WHINING!! This would have been good back in the day but now it just hard on the ears as an adult. Some music just doesn't grow with age. Kinda like Korn. I used to love pumpkins, Korn and some others, now I don't hate them but I just can listen to them anymore.

  • Adam Ray
    Adam Ray 17 days ago

    This video is a commentary on modern society. He leaves an asylum of sorts only to find out it's no better in the outside world. People are crazy wherever you go. The lyrics, "I'm nothing but a body in my mind", point to the spiritual and the nature of the mind which is non physical, thus showing the silliness and irony of materialism.

    I appreciate, that james iha on the guitar and jimmy chamberlin on the drums are back in the band. They can´t be replaced that easy. I guess many people, who listened to all albums from the smashing pumpkins billy corgan did with other guitarists and drummers, will know what i mean.
    p.s.: if your opinion is, that my english is not that good: I´m sorry my mother tongue is german but i try to improve anyways.

  • diana
    diana 23 days ago

    This reminds me of twenty one pilot's latest 3 music videos that describe the story of a man who escapes the city he resides in that is run by evil bishops who keep the city contain in surrounding walls; bleak and uninviting and without hope. Upon his escape, he is helped by his friends and take rest at a rebel camp outside of city limits within a secluded mountain, only to be taken by one of the bishops in an attempt to bring him back to the bleak city (aka. "Dema" as referenced within one of the videos). This Pumpkins video seems to follow a similar plot but in their pumpkins fashion. There a message in these videos, I hope the pumpkins can perhaps build on this video with another one...Solara is a brilliant song. Pumpkins 4 life. God bless!
