Nevermind


Smells Like Teen Spirit

Load up on guns and bring your friends It's fun to lose and to pretend She's over bored and self assured Oh no, I know a dirty word Hello, hello, hello, how low? I'm worse at what I do best And for this gift I feel blessed Our little group [tribe] has always been And always will until the end Hello, hello, hello, how low? And I forget just why I taste Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile I found it hard, it was hard to find Oh well, whatever, nevermind hello, hello, hello, how low? With the lights out it's less dangerous Here we are now, entertain us I feel stupid and contagious Here we are now, entertain us A mulatto An albino A mosquito My Libido Yay, a denial
In Bloom
Sell the kids for food --weather changes moods Spring is here again --reproductive glands He's the one Who likes all the pretty songs And he likes to sing along And he likes to shoot his gun But he knows not what it means And I say aahh We can have some more -- nature is a whore Bruises on the fruit -- tender age in bloom
Come As You Are
Come as you are, as you were, As I want you to be As a friend, as a friend, as an old enemy Take your time, hurry up The choice is your, don't be late Take a rest as a friend as an old memoria Come dowsed in mud, soaked in bleach As I want you to be As a trend, as a friend, as an old memoria And I swear that I don't have a gun No I don't have a gun
Breed
I don't care if I'm old I don't mind if I don't have a mind Get away, get away from your home I'm afraid, I'm afraid of a ghost Even if you have Even if you need I don't mean to stare We don't have to breed We can plant a house We can build a tree I don't even care We could have all three She said
Lithium
I'm so happy because today I've found my friends ... They're in my head I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you... We've broken our mirrors Sunday morning is everyday for all I care... And I'm not scared Light my candles in a daze... 'Cause I've found god - yeah, yeah, yeah I'm so lonely but that's okay I shaved my head... And I'm not sad And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard... But I'm not sure I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there... But I don't care I'm so horny but that's okay... My will is good - yeah, yeah, yeah I like it - I'm not gonna crack I miss you - I'm not gonna crack I love you - I'm not gonna crack I kill you - I'm not gonna crack
Polly
Polly wants a cracker Think I should get off of her first I think she wants some water To put out the blow torch It isn't me We have some seed Let me clip Your dirty wings Let me take a ride Don't hurt (cut?) yourself I want some help To help [please] myself I've got some rope You have been told I promise you I have been true Let me take a ride Don't hurt (cut?) yourself I want some help To help [please] myself Polly wants a cracker Maybe she would like more food She asks me to untie her A chase would be nice for a few Polly says her back hurts And she's just as bored as me She caught me off my guard It amazes me, the will of instinct
Territorial Pissings
"Come on people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now..." When I was an alien, cultures weren't opinions Gotta find a way to find a way when I'm there Gotta find a way - a better way - I had better wait Never met a wise man, if so it's a woman "Just because you're paranoid Doesn't mean they're not after you." **This is in some older live versions instead:** "Just because you're cliche doesn't mean you can act gay"
Drain You
One baby to another said, I'm lucky to have met you I don't care what you think Unless it is about me It is now my duty to completely drain you A travel through a tube And end up in your infection Chew your meat for you Pass it back and forth in a passionate kiss From my mouth to yours because I like you With eyes so dilated, I've became your pupil You've taught me everything Without a poison apple The water is so yellow, I'm a healthy student Indebted and so grateful - Vacuum out the fluids Sloppy lips to lips You're my vitamins because I'm like you
Lounge Act
Truth covered in security I can't let you smother me I'd like to but it wouldn't work (couldn't?) Trading off and taking turns I don't regret a thing And I've got this friend, you see (Alternative Interpretation: And I've got this fantasy Who (He?) makes me feel and I which makes me feel) Wanted more than I could steal I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield I'll go out of my way to prove I still Smell her on you (Still love you? Smell of you?) Don't tell me what I wanna hear Afraid of never knowing fear Experience anything you need I'll keep fighting jealousy Until it's fucking gone (Tell this fucking God?) I'll go out of my way to make you a deal We've make a pact to learn from who Ever we want without new rules We'll share what's lost and what we grew They'll go out of their way To prove they still Smell her on you I swear Kurt says "Still love you", but all the lyric sheets say "Smell her on you".
Stay Away
Monkey see, monkey do I don't know why I'd rather be dead than cool Every line ends in rhyme Less is more, love is blind Stay away Give an inch, take a smile Fashion shits, fashion style Throw it out and keep it in Have to have poison skin Stay away God is gay
On A Plain
I'll start this off without any words I got so high that I scratched 'til I bled I love myself better than you I know it's wrong so what should I do? The finest day that I ever had Was when I learned to cry on command I'm on a plain I can't complain My mother died every night It's safe to say don't quote me on that The black sheep got blackmailed again Forgot to put on the zip code Somewhere I have heard this before In a dream my memory has stored As a defense I'm neutered and spayed What the hell am I trying to say It is now time to make it unclear To write off lines that don't make sense One more special message to go And then I'm done then I can go home
Something In The Way
Underneath the bridge The tarp has sprung a leak And the animals I've trapped Have all become my pets And I'm living off of grass And the drippings from the ceiling But it's ok to eat fish 'Cause they haven't any feelings Something in the way
