Tell me I'm the only one
Tell me there's no other one
Jesus was an only son yeah
Tell me I'm the chosen one
Jesus was an only son, for you

from Smashing Pumpkins – Bullet with Butterfly Wings Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Billy is again mocking the human belief that everyone is “special” like an only son. We don’t want to be just “one of a billion”, we feel much more special, because maybe, if we were “lucky” our mother told us so, when we were little.
