Paroles "Alienation" - The Smashing Pumpkins

So, stay there ghost, my wishing tree
I even chose this outer space
And the idyllic swing on
Which I'd swung from

Exchange more parrot disgrace
All hail this out, spinning back
From an orbit laid in vain
From this empire man cannot name

Alienation, alienation
Free the morning, free revelation
Alienation, oh
Auf wiedersehen

For every one of you
There dwells a trillion stars
As without any true regrets
Truth gets stoned by change
Which taints how I've arrived
Via an oath I can't slam shut

Alienation, alienation
Free the morning, free revelation
Alienation, Alienation
Want a movement, fear penetration
Alienation, oh
Auf wiedersehen

Yet I sing how does a wishing tree run dry?
Child, you stand a remembrance in my mind
The embrace of those who loved you cannot die
Safe beyond the regents and their hive
Safe from clutch of jackals, and lost mime crimes
Never yielding

For every one of you
There dwells a trillion stars
Lighting way from truth to absolute
Truth gets stoned by change
Which taints how I've arrived
As when atom, 'tis but a grain of sand
And those lost are never forgotten
You'd marry time
Home is where you choke
Ending your days, alienation

Alienation, alienation
Free the morning, free revelation
Alienation, Alienation
Want a movement, fear penetration
Alienation, oh
Auf wiedersehen
Auf wiedersehen
Auf wiedersehen
Auf wiedersehen
Auf wiedersehen
Auf wiedersehen
Auf wiedersehen
