Smashing Pumpkins – Disarm (album: Siamese Dream 1993)

This song is by Smashing Pumpkins. It is a great album and such a wonderful song with bells and violins playing in the background, it is so magical!!!  
To be honest, I can’t really understand the lyrics of this song, what the hell did Billy Corgan mean when he wrote the following line: “The killer in me is the killer in you...”? Was it talking about his hair? After all it was last period he was seen with hair on his head! Other than that, the music is awesome and that’s the most important thing .Overall it was a great era for the smashing pumpkins .Check it out...

What’s this song about?
The BBC banned the song from appearing on Top of the Pops, because of the lyric "cut that little child", and it received little radio airplay in the United Kingdom. That lyric along with lyrics like "what I choose is my choice" and "the killer in me is the killer in you" has also led to some controversy, as some read it as implying that abortion is murder. Corgan, however, has clearly asserted that the song is about the shaky relationship he had with his parents while growing up. (Wikipedia – Disarm)
