bring the light

ok, here’s the lyrics to ‘Bring the Light’ off the new Smashing Pumpkins album ‘Zeitgeist’

Shot down I stood
Withstood my neighborhood
I got it wrong
But I could
Follow love lest I learn

It’s light
To bring the light
I fought with all my might
With light
Oh bring the light

Light
Bring the light
I never felt so good and right
But tonight
You’ll never need another sound
Oh bring the light
Bring the light to me

Here and gone oh I trust
You’d spit upon my dust
And mix my ash with your blood
A son of God you know you must arrive
In the light
Bring the light
Let’s bring the light
Light
Oh bring the light

Light
Bring the light
It’s yours not mine
If you just want to survive
Go grab a glimpse of any star
In heaven’s high
I never felt so real and loved and alive
No shadows follow me unsung
In the light

Bring the light to me

A flower song, clear and bright
Is it wrong in neon white
To insist you are mine
Standing dumb in the light

Bring the light
Oh bring the light
Bring the light

Light
Bring the light
I never felt so real and right and alive
Don’t let them steal you from what’s yours by right
Light
Bring the light
You know there comes a place and time
You can’t deny
With every movement shadows cast and align

Bring the light
Bring the light
Bring the light
Let’s bring the light
Light
Bring the light
Bring the light
Let’s bring the light
Light
Bring the light
Bring the light
Let’s bring the light
Light
Bring the light
Bring the light
Let’s bring the light
Light

ok, so heaps of these words have meaning to me, especially when put to great music… (i guess what i’m hinting at is GO BUY THE CD & LISTEN FOR YOURSELF!) yeah… well here’s what speaks to me the most…

the chorus:

Light
Bring the light
I never felt so good and right
But tonight
You’ll never need another sound
Oh bring the light
Bring the light to me

well, this is pretty obvious, at least to me… cause this describes how i feel right now… ‘so right and good’ yeah i guess you could say i feel pretty darn good… God has opened my heart and now every time i pray i can’t help but feel great… even when my prayers are serious… the process of talking to God affects my feelings… it’s hard to explain… i guess i feel like i have just stepped into ‘The Light’ and part of me is not coping with the brightness, but the rest of me is loving being able to see… yeah i could go on for ages… and maybe even get slightly deep, but alas, i’m tired and thus will not… ohh… ok… since you asked so nicely… the line that says ‘ You’ll never need another sound’ seems incongruous with the rest, yet if i look at the chorus as a metaphor for God’s light, then it seems to suggest that His light is not just a visual radiance that one can perceive, but also something that replace the wonder of music and sound… or maybe it contains sound… either way it’s impressive… and i would love to have light like that on me…

well that’s it for tonight…

thanks for listening… and seriously you should check out the cd… it’s really good… check out: http://www.myspace.com/smashingpumpkins for info on where to get it etc…
