The Smashing Pumpkins. Intense, beautiful. Ultimate rockness.

Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness, and cleanliness is Godliness, and God is empty; just like me.

It’s not just the twisted emotional logic of these lyrics; it’s also the moment in the song when they happen, and the fact that everything else stops and suddenly the lyrics are the focal point. That’s beautiful songwriting.
