Thirty-three Lyrics - Smashing Pumpkins

Review The Song (8)



Speak to me in a language I can hear
Humour me before I have to go
Deep in thought I forgive everyone
As the cluttered streets greet me once again
I know I can't be late
Supper's waiting on the table
Tomorrow's just an excuse away
So I pull my collar up and face the cold, on my own

The Earth laughs beneath my heavy feet
At the blasphemy in myold jangly walk
Steeple guide me to my heart and home
The sun is out and up and down again
I know I'll make it, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the Earth
And you can make it last forever
You can make it last forever

sponsored links
And for a moment I lose myself
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world
I've journeyed here and there and back again
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends
Mysteries not ready to reveal
Sympathies I'm ready to return
I'll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the Earth
Tomorrow's just an excuse
Tomorrow's just an excuse

And you can make it last forever

Simple beauty | Reviewer: Fourty-three | 11/21/13

Agree with a lot of the views and interpretations...which is most likely the point.
I'm 43, saw SP come up from Chicago, go universal and now reside in a timeless place.
Personally can relate to the lyrics - literal and metaphoric.
Life experience tends to lead you on various spiritual paths if you choose to recognize them.
Its a beautiful song with insightful lyrics placed perfectly in the chorus.
Let it be to each his own and simply enjoy.

Very powerful song | Reviewer: smatheson | 6/7/13

This song is mostly about Christ, and his journey to meet his friends for, what he knew, was the last time. It tells the story of him preparing himself for what lay ahead, and what he was going to tell them before he died. He was 33 when he was crucified. This song also gives parallels to modern life, trying to apply Christ's message to how we live today, in love and forgiveness, regardless of what we face ahead of us. In a way, it's a "What would Jesus do?" way of looking at the difficulties in life, and showing appreciation for all that we have, because it may not be there tomorrow, or we may not be.

Dont understand | Reviewer: Riaz | 3/8/13

Im originally from a country called mauritius and english is not my first language though im fluent in it, however i really dont get the meaning of this tune at all but despite that i feel like im gonna melt when i listen to this song.

33 reasons | Reviewer: cagney | 7/14/11

i dont have thirty three reasons like the song does but yea.. i was admitted into a christian camp for addiction and a friend of mine was humming the song and throughout the whole two months of being there i hummed it in my head, but the only words i knew were the first three lines. so i just sang it over and over in my head until i came back home and read the lyrics, and wow... songs really do have connected meaning. go figure...

Thirty Three | Reviewer: Zero | 2/5/11

For that guy Russell who wrote about Jesus references: Sure, there are obvious and non-obvious references here and there about Christ in the song. But the song is not JUST about Jesus. Because art itself is never about one sole subject, and it's never seen for one point of view only. You can always apply the lyrics to several situations and never get tired of viewing it for different angles.

Therefore, I don't see why should we "be in awe". Billy Corgan himself believes in God and has said it in several ocasions, but he don't believe in anything that can be teached and spreaded through FEAR. And when you say that we should be "be in awe of how we ever missed it in the first place", it just shows us how some religions spreads words (of peace and understanding, originally) through the WORST possible way, that is, through fear, and this is clearly a distortion of its original meaning.

For all of us: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is one of the most beautiful albums of all times.

Thirth Three is about Christ | Reviewer: Russell | 12/9/10

If you listen to this song, and remember the story of Jesus and the last supper, and going to be crucifide, you will clearly see the similarities, and then be in awe of how you ever missed it in the first place!

This song is ... | Reviewer: Buddha | 9/2/10

one of the most beautiful songs to come out of the 90's, i remember getting Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness after i got out of the hospital when i was a teenager, and hearing this song just made my day. This track has always had a special place in my heart.

90's and one the things i miss in life | Reviewer: Riven311 | 1/11/10

smashing pumpkins, radiohead, and bush where 3 groups that had made a inpack in my life. i think (more so for SP and radiohead) that all there songs have a deep meaning of thing's in life are dark and not happy for the most part. thing is that both bands may say this but they as well say to look at the little joys in life. they will add up.

in this song its about (to me) that the person is a loner in a way. they geting to a point where its not who they see them selfs no longer.
