"Inkless" is a song by The Smashing Pumpkins off of their 2012 studio album, Oceania. In a 2012 interview with MusicRadar, Corgan stated the song almost didn't make the album because it is too reminiscent of 90s-era albums, but he loved it too much to omit it. He wrote about the guitar solo:

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

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
