"Of all the songs, I really debated not putting this on the record because it's so the old Smashing Pumpkins mentality. But I just love the song. I love it! And in a weird way, being conscious about the journey of the album, there's something kind of nice about going through that long journey and having it resolve -- in a way, with the last rock song on the album -- with this Siamese Dream-ish feel.

"That being said, there's other stuff in there that doesn't sound like any Pumpkins stuff. But that first feel, that 'neeeeeeehhh!' -- all that -- I went back and forth on it. I have to say, I really like it. It's one of those guilty pleasures. I definitely see myself crankin' it up in the car.

"The solo... I remember we were mapping the guitars out, and I decided to just leave all this space for some reason. People would say, 'What's that for?' and I'd be like, 'Oh, I'm going to put the solo in there.' It's pretty unusual, the drop. You hear it on Queen records because of the nature in the way they worked, but it's pretty unusual in most modern music to hear no rhythm guitar at all. But I love it because you can really hear the texture of the sound and take the journey of the crazy bends." -BC, MusicRadar interview, 2012/06/13



The stars are out tonight
And what you need of me you've got inside you
Just take me home, take me home don't fight
But drive me home the wrong way
No loss spared
For losing you ain't right
You haunt where
Sprits take their time
It's time I can't seem to fight

The stars are out for us
And what you feel for me rides beside you
Just take me home, take me home
Don't fuss
But drive me home the right way
We'll uncover there's no other faith but us
A faith in love unseen

Trace the face of love unseen
Don't shadow up what we mean
Uncover what we're meant to be
And come unlace your light

The stars are out tonight
The stars are out tonight
The stars are out
The stars are out tonight
The stars are out
The stars are out tonight
The stars are out
The stars are out tonight
