Smashing Pumpkins on Muppets Tonight

You wake up in the morning
Find some things for the pot

Wonder why the sun
makes the rocks feel hot

Draw on the walls, eat, get laid
Back in the good old days

Then some damn fool invents the wheel
Listen to the white-walls squeal

You spend all day looking for a parking spot
Nothing for the heart, nothing for the pot

Me Or Him Ā· Roger Waters Ā· Radio KAOS 1987

Official video for Smashing Pumpkins song Today from the album Siamese Dream .

I just thought it was funny to write a song that said today is the greatest day of your life because it can’t get any worse.
Billy Corgan (Rolling Stone interview, Oct 1993)

Billy Corgan on Rocket. 2011.

Bleed in your own light
Dream of your own life

I miss me
I miss everything
Iā€™ll never be
