M e l l o n C o l l i e - Z e r o



This concept started out very different and had nothing to do with the Smashing Pumpkins song Zero. But, as these things often do, the song came on while I was working and I just felt this connection to it. Now it was not my intention to replicate the idea of the song verbatim, but more of what I felt in it at the time. The idea of emptiness and the girl Mellon Collie as the grit and beauty in ourselves. Enjoy.

My reflection, dirty mirror
There's no connection to myself
I'm your lover, I'm your zero
I'm the face in your dreams of glass
So save your prayers
For when we're really gonna need'em
Throw out your cares and fly
Wanna go for a ride?

She's the one for me
She's all I really need
Cause she's the one for me

Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness
And cleanliness is godliness, and god is empty just like me

Intoxicated with the madness, I'm in love with my sadness
Bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms
The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth
I never let on, that I was on a sinking ship
I never let on that I was down

You blame yourself, for what you can't ignore
You blame yourself for wanting more

She's the one for me
She's all I really need
She's the one for me
She's my one and only

Big thanks to...
... for the use of their stock!
