    The Smashing Pumpkins

    Mother Moon
    Mistress of the Sun
    Say, I got you, I got you
    Sister Sun
    Lovers of the tune
    Sing, I got you, I got you, I got you

    Floating away, I think I'll stay
    [As the view]
    Floating away, I think I'll stay in blue light
    Floating away, I think I'll stay
    Next to you
    Finding a way to make the loss in you
    Cuz you don't deserve me
    I know, that I deserve you

    Mother Moon
    Mistress of the Sun, Say,
    I got you, I got you
    Sister Sun
    Lovers of the tune, Sing
    I got you, I got you
    Mother Moon
    Mistress of the Sun, Sing
    I got you, I got you
    Oh I got you
    Oh I got you
    Mother Moon

    Floating away, I think I'll stay
    [as the fuse]
    Floating away, I think a day with you
    Floating away, I think I'll stay
    Next to you
    Finding a way to make the loss in you
    Cuz you don't deserve me
    But I deserve you
    Flowers for the May Queen
    But life for the prayers
    If nobody wears
    And what is loss, if I've got you

    This is a hugely underrated album by miles, if alternative hadn't been so commercialized I believe it had the potential to evolve into more like this, I've been a fan since day one and I say this album and current Pumpkin music is as good as their past, just matured for me. Thanks Billy and Pumpkins.

    Pumpkins fan from the beginning, and I think this (album) is as close to sounding like the OG Pumpkins as anything that Billy has attempted since the break up. Pinwheels is definitely a song I'd confidently throw into a Pumpkins mix. To me, it's not a song that would have felt "off" if it were somewhere on Mellon Collie. Certainly not as off as Cupid de Locke. be clear, I actually love Cupid de Locke. I appreciate it for the variety that it brought to the table, and I think Pinwheels would have fit right in.

    Mother moon
    Mistress of the sun, say
    I got you, I got you
    Sister soul
    Lover of the tune, sing!
    I got you, I got you, I got you
    Floating away I thing I'll stay as refused
    Floating away I thing I'll stay blue-black
    Floating away I thing I'll change next to you
    Finding a way to make the loss seem new
    'Cause you don't deserve me
    But I deserve you
    Mother moon
    Mistress of the sun, say
    I got you, I got you
    Sister soul
    Lover of the tune, sing!
    I got you
    I got you
    Mother moon
    Mistress of the sun, say
    I got you, I got you, oh I've got you
    I got you, I got you mother moon
    Floating away I thing I'll stay as refused
    Finding a way to make the loss seem now
    Floating away I thing I'll change next to you
    Finding a way to make the loss seem new
    'Cause you don't deserve me
    But I deserve you
    Flies for the may queen
    But life for the prince
    If nobody wins
    Then what get's lost?
    If I've got you

    This album was a bit ahead of its time... to me has fully " marinated"... this album would win a Grammy if it was released now... in 2017

    • Frank Anderson
      Frank Anderson Year ago

      Agree it gets better with every listen, still. But Billy Corgan nor his band will ever receive a Grammy under any circumstances at this point. He has never gotten anywhere near the credit that he deserves as an artist. If he had Mellon Collie would be in the top five of every "greatest albums of all time" list that gets printed. However, now he has been labeled with the label that makes him less than human in the eyes of all the established media, musical and otherwise. A Trump supporter. Darcy certainly got her payback with that little remark. Its not actually based on anything he has actually said, though one could infer that he doesn't align with the leftist media's talking points, he hasn't came close to being a "supporter" of Trump in reality. If he had been labeled a satan worshipping pedophile who wondered around his house each morning in a dress while drinking the blood of infants that he had just sacrificed with his bare hands he would be fine. In fact, that would probably assure him of multiple Grammies. But not with the "Trump supporter" label. To top it off, he committed another unpardonable sin by exercising his free speech and appearing on Infowars. What he actually said while there doesn't matter, just making an appearance there is enough to completely end the career of any musician who didn't already have 25 years worth of fans. This album certainly does marinate its way into your soul though, doesn't it.

  • vinnykster
    vinnykster 4 years ago +39

    Oceania is a masterpiece! Fans and critics that bash the more recent Pumpkins are just bandwagon/casual fans. The core audience like me gets what Corgan is doing. I'm not listening to songs like this one and going "OK if this doesn't sound or make me feel like Zero or Disarm did then it sucks" No. That is not a good way to judge it. Because its a different fucking song, a different feeling, different time and place. Its equivalent to me asking someone to behave as they did at a different time whether it be months years ago. To behave and be the same exact person is an impossibility. Some people that you knew then are dead now. Different people are in your day to day life and same with experiences. Music is a time capsule. If fans understood this fact maybe they'd enjoy the music more.

    • Hallucination
      Hallucination 9 months ago

      Sadly in todays music world if a band released an album like this nobody would ever hear it because nobody in the industry would help promote it even in the slightest. As good as this album is the only reason those who heard it did was because it had the Smashing Pumpkins name attached to it.

    • Hallucination
      Hallucination 9 months ago

      Exactly! I posted my other comment just now before reading yours but you're bang on.

    • Hallucination
      Hallucination 9 months ago

      haha! I love how you suggest ina round about way that the core fanbase will love anything regardless. Basically calling them sheep. I loved this album because it's good not because I've been a Pumpkins fan from the begining. Reality is not everyone will like this and if someone has been a fan for years and even a hardcore fan if they don't like this that doesnt automatically make them a casual fan. It's hilarious to me how people like yourself find ways to make being a fan some fucked up competetion.

      My biggest problem with monuments is that it feels so disjointed and as if each song, while good in their own way, just doesn't have that lasting appeal and effect. One and all is definitely the best track and on its own, one of his better songs in a long time, but the rest of the album is a tad boring for my personal tastes.

    • Mindcrackings
      Mindcrackings 4 years ago +2

      @vinnykster Can't say I agree with you about monuments. But I absolutely love Oceania.

    • vinnykster
      vinnykster 4 years ago +2

      Zeitgeist, Teargarden, Glow/Superchrist, Monuments are all money albums right up there with 90's. It's a matter of listening to it with an open mind and without living in the past. I would take any of these more recent Pumpkin's song collections with me to a desert island.

    • vinnykster
      vinnykster 4 years ago +1

      That's why SP new stuff is great. It grows on the listener because it's not pop garbage. Corgan has a ton of things going on in his songs so it takes time for the listener to catch up to that.

  • overanether
    overanether 5 years ago

    That's Nicole Fiorentino singing. She's the bass player. Jeff Schroeder told Billy they shouldn't bring in any extra musicians, to keep it tight with just the 4 of them. I like the result. But wouldn't rule out any experimentation in the future...

    He never can be though: this is Billy Corgan with a fresh group of musicians. I suppose he has the (legal) right to call it "Smashing Pumpkins", but the Rolling Stones maintained its member list. Corgan wasn't able to do that.

    It sounds like Billy finally found his muse from the Saimese Dream-Mellon Collie era again. This is a beautiful track and would fit nicely on either of those CD's. This song gives me the feeling of wistfully looking back on your youth in a video with all the happy, sad, and bittersweet emotions wash all over you at once, both wide eyed innocent and regretful at the same time...touching stuff.

    On the CD itself, there's a sticker saying to watch for a fall tour. Also, in many interviews this year, Billy's mentioned the tour. He wanted the CD to sink in with a lot of people before going on the road with it so the songs are familiar. On the last US tour they did, it featured some new songs and a lot of Gish/Pisces sprinkled with Siamese and MC&IS. He's said he doesn't want to be a traveling juke box so he leaves the songs like 1979 under lock and key.

  • Dan
    Dan 7 years ago

    They're going to be doing a Fall tour this year in the US. Keep your eyes open for the announcement. They're also going to be performing this CD in its entirety and follow the other part of the show with their older stuff. Don't expect songs like tonight,tonight or 1979. He refuses to play the big hits. Google it if you're still curious for more info.
