We seek the unseekable and we speak the unspeakable
Our hopes dead gathering dust to dust
In faith, in compassion, and in love

from Smashing Pumpkins – Cupid de Locke Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Those who were not supposed to start fresh love (the elderly on their deathbed, rivals, etc) and supposed to die have now been hit with Cupid’s arrows

Those who were supposed to fall in love and start glorious lives had been hit with Death’s arrows and are now dead

The Smashing Pumpkins have traveled the world and made songs about many different (often controversial) topics, living out their dreams, falling into depression and drugs among other things, all while living out their love of music
