the process is the artwork

The end is the beginning is the end is the beginning

Lyrics to the songs “The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning” and “The End Is The Beginning Is The End” (1997) by The Smashing Pumpkins. The video to the last one can be found here (but starts with a commercial).

The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning

Send a heartbeat to
The void that cries through you
Relive the pictures that have come to pass
For now we stand alone
The world is lost and blown
And we are flesh and blood disintegrate
With no more to hate

Is it bright where you are
And have the people changed
Does it make you happy you’re so strange
And in your darkest hour
My old secrets laid
We can watch the world devoured in its pain

Delivered from the blast
The last of a line of lasts
The pale princess of a palace cracked
And now the kingdom comes
Crashing down undone
And I am a master of a nothing place
Of recoil and grace

Is it bright where you are
And have the people changed
Does it make you happy you’re so strange
And in your darkest hour I hold secrets flame
We can watch the world devoured in its pain

Time has stopped before us
The sky cannot ignore us
No one can separate us
For we are all that is left
The echo bounces off me
The shadow lost beside me
There’s no more need to pretend
Cause now I can begin again

Is it bright where you are
And have the people changed
Does it make you happy you’re so strange
And in your darkest hour my old secrets laid
We can watch the world devoured in its hate
Strange
Strange
Strange

The End Is The Beginning Is The End

The sewers belch me up

The heavens spit me out
From ethers tragic
I am born again
And now I’m with you now
Inside your world of wow
To move in desires made of deadly pretends
Till the end times begin

Is it bright where you are
Have the people changed

Does it make you happy
you’re so strange
And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame
You can watch the world devoured in it’s pain
Strange

Climb my ribcage to
The replays run for you
Unhook my lights to peek behind the flash
For I am crystal chrome
I am shatter dome
I am kremlin king of angels avenged
To destroy the end

Is it bright where you are
Have the people changed
Does it make you happy you’re so strange
And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame
You can watch the world devoured in it’s pain

The zeppelins rain upon us
The guns of love disastrous
A shadow lies amongst you
To defy the future cast

Is it bright where you are
Have the people changed
Does it make you happy you’re so strange
And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame
You can watch the world devoured in it’s pain
Strange
Strange
