Nirvana song Lyrics!!!!

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? (x3)
Hello, hello, hello!

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! (x3)

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (x3)
Hello, hello, hello!

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! (x3)

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? (x3)
Hello, hello, hello!

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

A denial !! (x9)



In Bloom


Sell the kids for food
-- weather changes moods
Spring is here again
-- reproductive glands

Hey - He's the one
Who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means
Don't know what it means, when I say:

He's the one
Who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means
Knows not what it means when I say aahh ...

We can have some more -- nature is a whore
Bruises on the fruit -- tender age in bloom

Hey - He's the one
Who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means
Don't know what it means, when I say:

He's the one
Who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means
Knows not what it means when I say aahh ...

He's the one
Who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means
Knows not what it mean's when I say:

He's the one
Who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means

Knows not what it means (x2)
Knows not what it means when I say aahh ...



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 yours, don't be late.
Take a rest, as a friend, as an old memoria
Memoria (x3)

Come dowsed in mud, soaked in bleach
As I want you to be
As a trend, as a friend, as an old memoria
Memoria (x3)

And I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun (x2)

Memoria (x3)

Memoria - and I don't have a gun

And I swear that I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun (x4)

Memoria (x2)



Breed


I don't care (x5)
Care if I'm old
I don't mind (x5)
Mind, don't have a mind
Get away (x4)
Away, away from your home
I'm afraid (x5)
Afraid, 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 could plant a house
We could build a tree
I don't even care
We could have all three
She said (x8)

Lithium


I'm so happy 'cause 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 (Alt: We broke 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
Hey, hey hey (x6)

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
Hey, hey hey (x6)

(x2)
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 killed you - I'm not gonna crack

Polly


Polly wants a cracker
I think I should get off 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 cut yourself
I want some help
To 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 cut yourself
I want some help
To please myself

Polly wants a cracker
Maybe she would like some food
She asks me to untie her
A chase would be nice for a few

It isn't me
We have some seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Don't cut yourself
I want some help
To 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 cut yourself
I want some help
To please myself

Polly said

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

It isn't me
We have some seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Don't cut yourself
I want some help
To 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 cut yourself
I want some help
To please myself



Territorial Pissings


"Come on people now, smile on your brother and
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 here
Gotta find a way - a better way - I had better wait

Never met a wise man, if so it's a woman

(x2)
Gotta find a way, to find a way, when I'm here
Gotta find a way - a better way - I had better wait

"Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you"

(x4)
Gotta find a way, to find a way, when I'm here
Gotta find a way - a better way - I had better wait



Drain You


One baby to another says -
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
I like you

With eyes so dialated,
I've become 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

Chew your meat for you
Pass it back and forth
In a passionate kiss
From my mouth to yours
I like you
You (x5)

One baby to another says -
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
Sloppy lips to lips
You're my vitamins
I'm like you



Lounge Act


Truth - covered in security
I can't let you smother me
I'd like to, but it couldn't work
Trading off and taking turns
I don't regret a thing
And I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel and I
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
I still smell her on 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

And I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel and I
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
I still smell her on you

Truth! - covered in security
I can't let you smother me
I'd like to but it couldn't work
Trading off and taking turns
I don't regret a thing
And I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel and I
Wanted more than I could steal
I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield
I'll go out of my way to make you a deal
We've made 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

Still smell her on you (x3)



Stay Away


Monkey see, monkey do
I don't know why I'd - rather be dead than cool
I don't know why - every line ends in rhyme
I don't know why - less is more, love is blind
I don't know why

Stay
Stay away (x3)

Give an inch, take a smile
I don't know why - fashion shits, fashion style
I don't know why - throw it out and keep it in
I don't know why - have to have poison skin
I don't know why

Stay
Stay away (x3)

I don't why (x2)

Stay
Stay away (x3)

Monkey see, monkey do
I don't know why I'd - rather be dead than cool

I don't know why - less is more, love is blind
I don't know why

Stay
Stay away (x3)

I don't know why (x2)

Stay
Stay away (x3)

Stay away (x5)

God is gay!



On A Plain


I'll start this off without any words
I got so high that I scratched 'till 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 love myself better than you
I know it's wrong so what should I do?
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

My mother died every night
It's safe to say, don't quote me on that

I love myself better than you
I know it's wrong so what should I do?

The black sheep got blackmailed again
Forgot to put on the zip code

I love myself better than you
I know it's wrong so what should I do?

I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

Somewhere I have heard this before
In a dream of memory restored (Alt: 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

I love myself better than you
I know it's wrong so what should I do?

And one more special message to go
And then I'm done, then I can go home

I love myself better than you
I know it's wrong so what should I do?

(x5)
I'm on a plain
I can't complain



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
It's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings

(x3)
Something in the way, mmm
Something in the way, yeah, mmm

Endless, Nameless


Silence
Here I am
Here I am
Silent

Bright and clear
It's what I am
I have
Died

Mother (x4)

Death
With violence
Excitement
Right here

Died
Go to hell
Here I am
Right here

Ow!

No mas (x4)

Death
Is what I am
Go to hell
Go to jail
In back of that
Crime
Here I am
Take a chance
Dead!

Die!
Blew


If you wouldn't mind I would like to blew
If you wouldn't mind I would like to loose
If you wouldn't care I would like to leave
If you wouldn't mind I would like to breathe

Is there another reason for your stain
Could you believe who we knew was stress or strain?
Here is another word that rhymes with shame

Floyd the Barber


Bell on the door ring, come on in (Alt: Hello Cobain - come on in)
Floyd observes my hairy chin
Sit down in [the] chair, don't be afraid
Steaming towel wrapped around my face

I'm ashamed (x3)

Barney ties me to the chair
I can't see, I'm really scared
Floyd breathes hard, I hear a zip
Pee-Pee pressed against my lips (Alt: Beat me, pressed against my lips)

I was shamed (x3)

I sense others in the room
Opie, Aunt Bea, I presume
They take turns, and cut me up (Alt: They take turns to cut me up)
I die smothered in Andy's Clutch (Alt: I died smothered in Aunt Bea's muff)

I was shamed (x3)



About a Girl


I need an easy friend
I do ... with an ear to lend
I don't think you fit this shoe
I do ... won't you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night for free
I do

I'm standing in your line
I do ... hope you have the time
I do ... pick a number too
I do ... keep a date with you

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night for free

I need an easy friend

Love Buzz


Would you believe me when I tell you
You are the queen of my heart
Please don't deceive me when I hurt you
Just ain't the way it seems

(x4)
Can you feel my love buzz?

Would you believe me when I do you
You are the queen of my heart
Please don't deceive me when I hurt you
Just ain't the way it seems

Paper Cuts


At feeding time (Alt: When I'm feeling tired)
She pushed food through the door (Alt: She puts you through the door)
And I crawl towards the crack of light (Alt: I crawl towards the cursed alley)
Sometimes I can't find my way
Newspapers spread around
Soaking all that they can
A cleaning is due again
A good hosing down

The lady whom I feel maternal love for
Cannot look me in the eyes
But I see hers and they are blue
And they cock and twist and masturbate!

I said so (x3)
Nirvana (x6)

Black windows of paint
I scratched with my nails
I see others just like me
Why do they not try to escape?
They bring out the older ones
They point at my way
They come with a flash of light (Alt: They come with flashing lights)
And take my family away

And very later I have learned
To accept some friends of ridicule
My whole existence is for your amusement
And that is why I'm here with you!
To take you with me
You're right

Nirvana (x8)



Negative Creep


This is out of our reach (x3)
and it's grown
This is getting to be (x3)
drone
I'm a negative creep (x3)
and I'm stoned!
I'm a negative creep (x3)

Daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more (x6)

This is getting to be (x3)

Scoff


In my eyes, I'm not lazy
In my face, It's not over
In your room, I'm not older
In your eyes, I'm not worth it
Gimme back my alcohol (x7)

Heal a million, kill a million (x3)

In my eyes, I'm not lazy

Swap Meet


(x3)
They lead a lifetime that is comfortable
They travel far to keep their stomachs full
They make their living off of arts and crafts
The kind with seashells, driftwood and burlap
They make a deal when they come to town
The Sunday swap meet is a battle ground
She loves him more than he will ever know
He loves her more than he will ever show

-- Keeps his cigarettes close to his heart
-- Keeps her photographs close to her heart
-- Keeps the bitterness close to the heart



Mr. Moustache


Fill me in on your new vision
Wake me up with indecision
Help me trust your mighty wisdom
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Show me how you question, question
Lead the way to my temptations
Take my hand and keep it clean
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Is he in an easychair? (Alt: Easy in an easy chair)
-- Poop as hard as a rock.
I don't like you anyway
-- Seal it in a box

I'm new
Now you

Fill me in on your new vision
Wake me up with indecision
Help me trust your mighty wisdom
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Show me how you question, question
Lead the way to my temptations
Take my hand and keep it clean

Sifting


Afraid - to grade
Wouldn't it be fun?
Cross, self loss (Alt: Cross, says floss)
Wouldn't it be fun?
Wet your bed
Wouldn't it be fun?
Sun felt numb (Alt: Some fear none)
Wouldn't it be fun?

Your eyes ...
Teacher said,
Your eyes ...
Teacher said,
Your eyes ...
Teacher said,
Preacher said

"Don't have nothing for you" (x7)

Wouldn't it be fun?
Search for a church

Cold in coals
Wouldn't it be fun?

Big Cheese


Big cheese - make me
Mine says, "Go [to] the office"

Big cheese - make me
Mine says, "One that stays"

Black is black, straight back
Need more enemies

Sure you are, but what am I? (Alt: Show you all what a man is)
We were enemies

Big lies - make mine
Mine says "Go [to] the office"

Big cheese - make me
Message? What is it?

Black is black, straight back

Need more enemies
She eats glue, how 'bout you? (Alt: She is glue, how are you?)

Big cheese - make me
Mine says "Go [to] the office"

Big cheese - make me
Message?  What is it?

Black is black, straight back
We were enemies
She eats glue, how 'bout you? (Alt: She is glue, how are you?)

Black is black, straight back
We were enemies
Sure you are, but what am I?
We were enemies
She eats glue, how 'bout you? (Alt: She is glue, how are you?)
We were enemies
Sure you are, but what am I?

It is fairly difficult to get the exact correct lyrics for this song ...



Downer


Portray sincerity (Alt: Butcher sincerity)
Act out of loyalty
Defending your true country
Wish away the pain
Hand out lobotomies
To save little families
Surrealistic fantasy
Bad boy, Fight! (Alt: Flamboyant pain)

Hold me down in restitution
Living out your date with fusion
Is the whole fleece shun in master?
Don't feel guilty, master writing

Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can
Make enough of the words for you to go along and sing your song

Slippery pessimist hypocrite master
Conservative communist apocalyptic bastard
Thank you dear God for putting me on this Earth
I feel very privileged in debt for my thirst! (Alt: Feeling very frivilous, death in mind. Nurse!)

Hold me down in restitution
Living out your date with fusion
Is the whole fleece shun in master?
Don't feel guilty, master writing

Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can
Make enough of the words for you to go along and sing your song
Turnaround


Take a step outside yourself
And you turn around
Take a look at who you are
It's pretty scary
So silly
It's Revolting
You're not much
You can't do anything

Take a step outside the city
And you turn around
Take a look at what you are
It is revolting
You're really nowhere
So wasteful
So foolish
Poppycock!

Who said don't look back?
Don't believe 'em
Go for that crazy sounding restaurant
'Cause they're gonna try and get behind you
Don't you let them do it
You know what I'm talking about?
You hear me talking?
You hear me talking!?

It's pretty scary, it's so revolting (x4)
Naaaah !

Take a step outside the country
And you turn around
Take a look at what you are
It is amazing
Take a good look
You're no big deal
You're so petty
It's a laugh

Take a step outside the planet
Turn around and around
Take a look at where you are
It's pretty scary

Aneurysm


Come on over and do the twist
Overdo it and have a fit
Come on over and shoot the shit
Love you so much it makes me sick

Beat me outta me - Beat it! beat it! (x7)
Beat me outta me

Come on over and do the twist
Overdo it and have a fit
Come on over and shoot the shit
Love you so much it makes me sick

Beat me outta me - Beat it! beat it! (x7)

Straight as an arrow
Defect defect

Standing on the stairs
Cold, cold morning
Ghostly image of fear
Mayday mayday
Gonna leave this region
They'll take me with them

Son of a gun

Turn turn turnaround
Round round roundabout
And over again
Gun gun son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference what I say

Sliver


Mom and dad went to a show
They dropped me off at Grandpa Joe's
I kicked and screamed, said please, don't go

Grandma take me home (x8)

Had to eat my dinner there
Mashed potatos and stuff like that
I couldn't chew my meat too good

Never take me home (x8) (Alt: Grandma take me home (x8))

She said, well, don't you start your crying (Alt: Said, why don't you stop your crying)
Go outside and ride your bike
Thats what I did, I killed my toad

Never take me home (x8)

After dinner, I had ice cream
I fell asleep, and watched TV
I woke up in my mother's arms

Never take me home (x19)
I wanna be alone



Stain


(x3)
Well he never bleeds and he never fucks
And he never leaves 'cause he's got bad luck.
Well he never reads and he never draws.
And he never sleeps 'cause he's got bad blood, yeah

I'm a stain, I'm a stain, I'm a stain, I'm a stain



Been A Son


She should have stayed away from friends
She should have had more time to spend
She should have died when she was born
She should have worn the crown of thorns

She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son

She should have stood out in the crowd
She should have made her mother proud
She should have fallen on her stance
She should have had another chance

(x2)
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son

She should have stayed away from friends
She should have had more time to spend
She should have died when she was born
She should have worn the crown of thorns

She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son



Turnaround


Take a step outside yourself
And you turn around
Take a look at who you are
It's pretty scary
So silly
It's Revolting
You're not much
You can't do anything

Take a step outside the city
And you turn around
Take a look at what you are
It is revolting
You're really nowhere
So wasteful
So foolish
Poppycock!

Who said don't look back?
Don't believe 'em
Go for that crazy sounding restaurant
'Cause they're gonna try and get behind you
Don't you let them do it
You know what I'm talking about?
You hear me talking?
You hear me talking!?

It's pretty scary, it's so revolting (x4)
Naaaah !

Take a step outside the country
And you turn around
Take a look at what you are
It is amazing
Take a good look
You're no big deal
You're so petty
It's a laugh

Take a step outside the planet
Turn around and around
Take a look at where you are
It's pretty scary

Molly's Lips

She said
She'd take me anywhere
She'd take me anywhere
As long as she stays with me

She said
She'd take me anywhere
She'd take me anywhere
As long as I stayed clean

Kiss kiss Molly's lips (x4 and x8 in the end)

Son of A Gun


Up up up and down
Turn turn turnaround
Round round roundabout
And over again
Gun gun son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference what I say

(x2)
The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

Up up up and down
Turn turn turnaround
Round round roundabout
And over again
Gun gun son of a gun
You are the only one
Makes any difference what I say

(x2)
The sun shines in the bedroom
When we play
The raining always starts
When you go away

Up up up and down
Turn turn turnaround
Round round roundabout

(New Wave) Polly


Polly wants a cracker
I think I should get off of her first
Maybe 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 yourself
I want some help
To 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 yourself
I want some help
To help 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

It isn't me
We have some seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Don't hurt yourself
I want some help
To 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 yourself
I want some help
To please myself (Alt: To help myself)

Polly said

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

It isn't me
We have some seed
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Don't hurt yourself
I want some help
To 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 yourself
I want some help
To please myself (Alt: To help myself)



Beeswax


Why doesn't she need him for a father?
Not only maidens can occupy my shack
Goring my manhood turns a man off
Like Pepe LePew would say,
Hey, hey, hey! -- then we clash!

I got my diddly spayed (x3)
I got my diddly

She laughs about it
Shrinking inflections if the wind blows just right
Jacking themselves off polyester!
I wanna jump, this isn't right!
Hey, when am I getting it back?

I got my diddly spayed (x3)
I got my diddly

I don't know why,
I got a joke too silly to say
Don't touch the balls
I got a dick, Dick -- hear my fucking hate!

I got my diddly spayed (x3)
I got my diddly

If you're wondering, it's gaining monthly
Fiberglass insulated,
Disguised as cotton candy,
Spawning downstream, El Rancho Ovulate
Feeling can't help me romp
Bill just fuck me, take me anal
Billy's slit reminds me of someone
I'm sick of paying for the love boat
Tony and Tenille say wanna jump rope
And I say look!

I got my dingaling spayed
I got my liberty
I got my diddly spayed (x2)

... Nothing hard
I gotta be around pussy
Don't let me fall
I got a heh-heh ...
Well you can't live
We got my diddly spayed

I got diddly spayed (x5)
I got diddly



Downer


Portray sincerity
Act out of loyalty
Defending your country
Wish away the pain
Hand out lobotomies
To save little families
Surrealistic fantasy
Bland boring plain

Hold me down in restitution
Living out your date with fusion
Is the whole fleece shun in master?
Don't feel guilty, master writing

Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can
Make enough of the words for you to go along and sing your song

Slippery pessimist hypocrite master
Conservative communist apocalyptic bastard
Thank you dear God for putting me on this Earth
I feel very privileged in debt for my thirst!

Hold me down in restitution
Living out your date with fusion
Is the whole fleece shun in master?
Don't feel guilty, master writing

Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can
Make enough of the words for you to go along and sing your song



Mexican Seafood


Oh, itchy flakes, it isn't through me
Till the jaw's in flames, it's entertaining
True, the fungus mold is my attraction
Oh, it's only a disinfection

Only hurts a night, until I pee (Alt: Only hurts when I, hurts when I pee)
Only hurts a night, until I sleep (Alt: Only hurts when I, hurts when I see)

Oh, coming up, and diarrhea
On the tile floor, a gum of pizza
In the toilet bowl, aroma cloudy
Toss, feel it burn, become a chowdered mess

Only hurts a night, until I pee (Alt: Only hurts when I, hurts when I pee)
Only hurts a night, until I sleep (Alt: Only hurts when I, hurts when I see)

Oh, take my bed, I've just consumed some flies
Bugs and fleas and even mucus
Stain the vaseline, and tainted burgers
Stop, in case it learns, and takes a joke as such.
Mmmmm ...

At night, Crisco lovefest
At night, a mouthful on me
It's like, fish-filled garbage
At night, we'll go ... gaaahhh !!

Aero Zeppelin


What's the season of love if you can't have everything
What's the reason of love if you can lose everything
What's the meaning of love, it's a crime if anything
What's the meaning of love, it's a crime, it's a crime

How can a culture can forget it's plan of yesterday
And you swear it's not a trend, doesn't matter anyway
There's no need to talk to friends, nothing new is everyday
You could shit upon the stairs, you'll be friends

You'll be friends (x3)

All the kids will eat it up, if it's packaged properly
Should it subteley irritate, keep it movin' equally
All I know is just the fact, where the world is nowadays
An idea is what we lack, doesn't matter anyway

All the kids will eat it up, if it's packaged properly
Still the son will imitate, keep it fallin' equally
All I know is just the facts, where the world is nowadays
An idea is what we lack, doesn't matter anyway

Hey ... (x7)


Aero Zeppelin (slightly different interpretation)


What's the season of love if you can't have anything
What's the reason of love if you can lose everything
What's the meaning in a crumb, it's a crime if anything
Where's the meaning of love, it's a crime, it's a crime

How a culture can forget it's plan of yesterday
And you swear it's not a trend, doesn't matter anyway
There's no need to talk to friends, nothing new is everyday
You could shit upon the stairs, you'll be friends

You'll be friends (x3)

All the kids will eat it up, if it's packaged properly
Still the son will immitate, keep it fallin' equally
Now they know it's just a fact, we're a problem nowadays
An idea is what we lack, doesn't matter anyways

All the kids will eat it up, if it's packaged properly
Still the son will imitate, keep it fallin' equally
Now they know just the facts, where the world is nowadays
An idea is what we lack, doesn't matter anyways

Hey ... (x7)

Big Long Now


It's not cold enough
Please put this side up
She is moving through (Alt: She is moon grey)
Can we show our faces now?

I'm not interesting
She's not turning green
Shameful as it seems
Can we show our faces now?

Endless climb
I am blind
Why can't I leave? (Alt: Why can't I hear?)
Color blind
Speaking a phrase
Instantly grown
I am blind
Waiting in line

It's not cold enough
Please put this side up
She is moving through (Alt: She is moon grey)
Can we show our faces now?

I'm not interesting
She's not turning green
Shameful as it seems
Can we show our faces now?

Endless climb
I am blind
Why can't I leave? (Alt: Why can't I hear?)
Color blind
Speaking a phrase
Instantly grown
I am blind
Why am I sure?



Aneurysm


Come on over and do the twist
Over-do it and have a fit
Love you so much it makes me sick
Come on over and do the twist

Beat me outta me - Beat it! beat it! (x7) (Alt: Beat thee outta me - Beat it! beat it!)
Beat me outta me

Come on over and do the twist
Over-do it and have a fit
Love you so much it makes me sick
Come on over and shoot the shit

Beat me outta me - Beat it! beat it! (x7) (Alt: Beat thee outta me - Beat it! beat it!)
Beat me outta me

She keeps it pumpin' straight to my heart (x8)
Serve the Servants


Teenage angst has paid off well
Now I'm bored and old
Self-appointed judges judge
More than they have sold

If she floats than she is not
A witch like we had thought
A down payment on another
One at salem's lot

Serve the servants - Oh no (x4)

That legendary divorce is such a bore

As my bones grew they did hurt
They hurt really bad
I tried hard to have a father
But instead I had a dad

I just want you to know that I
Don't hate you anymore
There is nothing I could say
That I haven't thought before

Serve the servants - Oh no (x4)

That legendary divorce is such a bore

Serve the servants - Oh no (x7)

That legendary divorce is such a bore



Scentless Apprentice


Like most babies smell like butter
His smell smelled like no other
He was born scentless and senseless
He was born a scentless apprentice

Go away - get away, get a-way

Every wet nurse refused to feed him
Electrolytes smell like semen
I promise not to sell your perfumed secrets
There are countless formulas for pressing flowers

Go away - get away, get a-way

I lie in the soll and fertilize mushrooms
Leaking out gas fumes are made into perfume
You can't fire me because I quit!
Throw me in the fire and I won't throw a fit

Go away - get away, get away, get away, get away, get away, get a-way



Heart-Shaped Box


She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your Heart-Shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn back (Alt: ... when you turn black)

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! (Alt: Hate! Haight!)
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel's hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your Heart-Shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn back (Alt: ... when you turn black)

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

Your advice (x3)



Rape Me


Rape me
Rape me my friend
Rape me
Rape me again

I'm not the only one (x4)

Hate me
Do it and do it again
Waste me
Rape me my friend

I'm not the only one (x4)

My favorite inside source
I'll kiss your open sores
Appreciate your concern
You'll always stink and burn

Rape me
Rape me my friend
Rape me
Rape me again

I'm not the only one (x4)

Rape me! (x9)



Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle


It's so relieving
To know that you're leaving as soon as you get paid
It's so relaxing
To hear that you're asking wherever you get your way
It's so soothing
To know that you'll sue me, this is starting to sound the same

I miss the comfort in being sad (x3)

In her false witness, we hope you're still with us,
To see if they float or drown
Our favorite patient, a display of patience,
Disease-covered Puget Sound
She'll come back as fire, to burn all the liars,
And leave a blanket of ash on the ground

I miss the comfort in being sad (x3)

It's so relieving
To know that you're leaving as soon as you get paid
It's so relaxing
To know that you're asking wherever you get your way
It's so soothing
To know that you'll sue me, this is starting to sound the same

I miss the comfort in being sad (x3)



Dumb


I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Or maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy (x3)

My heart is broke
But I have some glue
Help me inhale
And mend it with you
We'll float around
And hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down
And have a hangover

Have a hangover (x3)

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
The soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
My day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Maybe just happy

Think I'm just happy (x3)

I think I'm dumb (x12)



Very Ape


I am buried up to my neck in
Contradictionary flies
I take pride as the king of illiterature
I'm very ape and very nice

If you ever need anything please don't
Hesitate to ask someone else first
I'm too busy acting like I'm not naive
I've seen it all, I was here first

Out of the ground
Into the sky
Out of the sky
Into the dirt

If you ever need anything please don't
Hesitate to ask someone else first
I'm too busy acting like I'm not naive
I've seen it all, I was here first

(x2)
Out of the ground
Into the sky
Out of the sky
Into the dirt



Milk It


I am my own parasite
I don't need a host to live
We feed off of each other
We can share our endorphins

Doll steak!
Test meat!

Look on the bright side is suicide
Lost eyesight I'm on your side
Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing
Lack of iron and/or sleeping

I own my own pet virus
I get to pet and name her
Her milk is my shit
My shit it is her milk

Test meat!
Doll steak!

Look on the bright side is suicide
Lost eyesight I'm on your side
Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing
Lack of iron and/or sleeping

Doll steak!
Test meat!

Look on the bright side is suicide
Lost eyesight I'm on your side
Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing
Lack of iron and/or sleeping

Protector of the kennel
Ecto-plasma, Ecto-skeletal
Obituary every birthday
Your scent is still here in my place of recovery!



Pennyroyal Tea


I'm on my time with everyone
I have very bad posture

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld
So I can sigh eternally

I'm so tired I can't sleep
I'm a liar and a thief
Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

I'm on warm milk and laxatives
Cherry-flavored antacids

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty



Radio Friendly Unit Shifter


- Hmmmmmm ... I just wanna know ... do you like me? - [This is whispered in the beginning]

Use just once and destroy
Invasion of our piracy
Afterbirth of a nation
Starve without your skeleton key

I love you for what I am not
I do not want what I have got
A blanket acne'ed with ciggarette burns
Speak at once while taking turns

What is wrong with me (x3)

I'm gonna do with what you think
If you ever think at all
Bi-polar opposites attract
All of a sudden my water broke

I love you for what I am not
I do not want what I have got
A blanket acne'ed with ciggarette burns
Second-rate third degree burns

What is wrong with me (x2)
What do I think of me ?

Hate, hate your enemies
Save, save your friends
Find, find your place
Speak, speak the truth

What is wrong with me (x3)
What do I think of me ?

Use just once and destroy
Invasion of our piracy
Afterbirth of a nation
Starve without your skeleton key

(x2)
What is wrong with me (x3)
What do I think of me ?

We all want something fair, in my heart.
Hey!

Out of town, out of sight, is my heart.

Cold heart, cold heart, cold heart, cold heart!

All Apologies


What else should I be
All apologies
What else could I say
Everyone is gay
What else could I write
I don't have the right
What else should I be
All apologies

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun
I'm married
Buried

I wish I was like you
Easily amused
Find my nest of salt
Everything is my fault
I'll take all the blame
Aqua seafoam shame
Sunburn with freezeburn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun
Married, Maried, Maried!
Buried!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

All in all is all we are (x20)



Gallons Of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through The Strip


It hurts when you have to press that dull little thing
That you're only supposed to use once and then discard
Where do you put it? In the garbage can, my honest friend
My shyness, pet her flow

She's only been five months late, even though we haven't had sex for a week

A meal a day, a meal, I say
And my heart's made my ...

Somebody else already used the word 'aurora-borealis'
She was tied up in chains, and Sam had helped her in the freezer

She's only five weeks late, but I haven't had a date forever ...
Ever ... ever ... forever!

Wish I had more ... more opportunity,
More chances to remember some things
So I couldn't have so much pressure on my ...
On my ... on my, um ... ah, on my ... um ... um ... head

We'd have so much more diversity,
And so much more input, so much more creative flow,
If we had someone in school, a 'GIT' ...

GIT ... geeks ... in ... town.
Ha! ... Come on, Dave, think of one ... !
- Girls with trouble
It should be GIC, geeks with charvels
No, GWC, fuck man this is a waste of time ...

{laughs}

One more solo?   Yeahhhhhhhhh!  Yeaaaahhhhh!

You're personally responsible for ...
The entire strip ... to be washed away ...
Cleansed ... as if gallons of, um, rubbing alcohol
Flowed through the strip and were set on fire.

It didn't just singe the hair, it made it straight.
And then Perry Ellis came along with his broom,
And his ... silk ... 
And he ... he erected a beautiful city ...
A city of stars.
