The Smashing Pumpkins Bullet With Butterfly Wings Lyrics

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 the game

(chorus)
Even though I know - I suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Despite all my rage I’m still just a rat in a cage (2x)
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I’m 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?
And what do you want, I want to change
And what have you got when you feel the same

(chorus)

(chorus 2)
Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me there’s no other one
Jesus was an only son
Tell me I’m the chosen one
Jesus was an only son for you

(chorus)
(chorus 2)

Despite all my rage I’m still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I’m still just a rat in a cage
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
