"Burnt Orange Black" is a song by The Smashing Pumpkins that was recorded during the March-April 2014 – Pumpkinland II sessions and likely intended for Day For Night, which was the abandoned sister-album to Monuments to an Elegy. Ultimately it was "cougared" (marked for non-inclusion) and was never officially released, though it was performed live a number of times in late 2014.

Lyrics

There was a time I've laughed
Was a time I've cried
You didn't want me back
You didn't want me back

While the others burnt black
While the others burnt black
While the others burnt black
While the others burnt black
While the others burnt black

I used to be so nice
And there were days that I was cruel
You didn't want me ripe
You didn't want me ripe

While the others burnt black
While the others burnt black
While the others burnt black
While the others burnt black

Let the others burn black
?????
It used to be ????

Let the others burn black
Let the others burn black
Let the others burn black
Let the others burn black

Let the others burn black
Let the others burn black
Let the others burn black
Let the others burn black
