Smashing Pumpkins - Where Boys Fear To Tread Lyrics




Candy cane walks down
To build a bonfire, to break my fall
My baby, my sweet thing
Just maybe we could lose ourselves this time
King of the horseflies, dark prince of death
His tragic forces are heaven sent
In sweet things, in a lovers breath
In knowing this was meant to be the last
A go-go-kids, a go-go-style
A suck suck kiss, a suck suck smile
As always, in young need
A veiled promise to never die
On dead highways, her black beauties roam
For june angels, so far from home
For a love lost, a faded picture
To tread lightning, to ink the lavender skies
So get on the bomb
Get back where you belong

Smashing Pumpkins Where Boys Fear To Tread Comments
  1. BLACK CUBE MYSTERY

    Imagine all our generational teenage angst fitting so nicely in one albulm

  2. Christopher Ward

    This _is_ a great song. I love it.

  3. ASDF

    This was one of my favorites on the album! So fuckin' raw and hard.

  4. Scott Busz

    When i was 15... Lying up in my room... Unwrapped this CD for the first time and thought it was the shit after hearing this track

  5. Aquil Hall

    I was an angst filled teen!

  6. Elizabeth K

    Def one of the best from SP

  7. nthnppps

    Track one disc two...
    Fire n up !

    Boozy Wiener

    Thats how i remember it, the first song to crank!

  8. Diamond Dee

    Brill! Song is awesome thank u!

  9. Alex Arrizon

    D'Arcy is such a bad ass musician. Smashing Pumpkins are still the best band of the 90s. Nirvana sucked balls compared to SP. Billy Corgan has talent out the ass. Cobain couldn't shit on Corgan to save his life.

  10. jon good

    my girlfriend thinks this sounds like symphony of destruction by megadeth, please put that theory to rest...

    iwtmltyb

    Play your girlfriend ‘Ritual’ by Ghost. Now that riff is definitely reminiscent of ‘Symphony of Destruction.’

    I can confirm this song sounds nothing like the Megadeth song.

    Dallas Boring News

    The king of the horseflies says "no"

    Dallas Boring News

    @iwtmltyb all music sounds the same after megadeth. The trees that fall alone in the forest sound the same as megadeth too. Sounds like father McKenzie

    Jan pangilinan

    Hey you Dallas Boring News! You got a point there.

  11. lukezgio

    Atomic bomb !

    Candy cane walks down 
    To build a bonfire to break my fall 
    My baby, my sweet thing 
    Just maybe we could lose ourselves this time 
    King of the horseflies, dark prince of death 
    His tragic forces are heaven sent 
    In sweet things, in a lover's breath 
    In knowing this was meant to be the last 
    A go go go kids, a go go go style 
    A suck suck suck kiss, a suck suck suck smile 
    As always in young need 
    A veiled promise to never die 
    On dead highways, her black beauties roam 
    For June angels, so far from home 
    For a love lost, a faded picture 
    To tread lightning, to ink the lavender skies 
    So get on, get on, get on the bomb 
    Get back, get back where you belong
    Get on, get on, get on the bomb 
    Get back, get back where you belong
    Get on, get on, get on the bomb 
    Get back, get back where you belong
    Get on
    The bomb

    Alex Arrizon

    The lyrics are beautiful.

    Simonzzz

  13. Nigel Wang

    Memories of LSD brought me here

  14. kmvoss

    I remember getting this CD when it came out, I was 9 years old and a heavy doom player. I remember being pretty jazzed to the rocket launcher sample. That was awesome. :)

  15. Peter Sutherland

    Metal
    Shimmy shake girl...
    Candy cane walks
    Down
    To build a bonfire
    To break my fall...


    In sweet things
    In a lover's breath...

    A suck suck suck smile
    As always...

    June angels
    So far from home


    Get on, get on, get on the bomb.
    Get back, get back where you belong..

    Scott End

    ​@Kristopher Ryan Jesus fucking christ, you're triggered.
    Calm down, Kristopher. It's just a comment, you weirdo. hahaha

    mattcockradi

    @Kristopher Ryan
    If you can take a dick, you can take a joke.

    TheGrrf

    Kristopher Ryan egghead ass

    David Creigh

    Wow, I didn't think this comment would stir up shit lol
    Scott End was correct with "the OP is remarking that the album is typical of the year/era of its release."

    Jin

    @Scott End He's dense. This is what American schools produce now.

  27. Schizm81

    Doom brought me here

    Tabu 03

    I think you are thinking of tales of a scorched earth, dude. The explosion is at the end of that song. But this is a cool track too.

    corgan59

    Samantha Donaldson

    @corgan59 siiiick

    Pokemanic33

    Don't just listen to this one song, the whole album is a must-listen

  28. Your Maw

    that riff though

    Phil Lynch

    Never gets enough credit for his riffs.

    Calvin Ramsey

    Pokemanic33
