I fear that I am ordinary
Just like everyone
To lie and die among the sorrows
Adrift among the days
For everything I ever said
For everything I've ever done
Is gone and dead
And all things must surely have to end
And great loves will one day have to part
I know I am meant for this world
My life has been extraordinary
Blessed and cursed and won
Time heals but I am forever broken
By and by the way...
Have you ever heard the words
I am singing in these songs?
It's for the girl I loved all along
Can a taste of love be so wrong
As all things must surely have to end
And great loves will one day have to part
I know I am meant for this world
And in my mind as I was floating
Far above the clouds
Some children laughed I'd fall for certain
For thinking that I'd last forever
But I knew exactly where I was
And I knew the meaning of it all
And I knew the distance to the sun
And I knew the echo that is love
And I knew the secrets in your spires
And I knew the emptiness of youth
And I knew the solitude of heart
And I knew the murmurs of the soul
And the world is drawn into your hands
And the world is etched up your heart
And the world so hard to understand
Is the world you can't live without
And I knew the silence of the world

Song Secrets:
During the verse 'for thinking that i'd last forever', right when Billy sings the word 'last' you
can hear D'arcy sing 'die' in the background, also on the last line, when 'and i knew the 
silence of the world' is sung, you can hear a really high pitched voice sing the 'and i knew'
part along with Billy. (Edwin Maldonado) Also at the beginning, Billy takes a big breath. 
Other Info:
It was originally going to be a single for MCIS, but Billy said in a radio interview, I believe it
was to a Toronto radio station, that it (Muzzle) was doing well on the alternative charts
but not well on the pop charts(top 40,etc.), so there was no point in making a video for
it.It was released as a radio promo only.
The Pumpkins performed Muzzle (even though it wasn't a single) on Conan O'Brian.
