The Audacity of Grunge~Words & Music by Kurt Cobain

The audacity of Kurt to soothe us with his misery
comfort us with his self disgust 
and embrace us in his fear and pain 

Welcome to Nirvana

Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle 

It's so relieving to know that you're leaving as soon as you get paid. 

Its 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

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 of being sad  

Very Ape 

I am burned up to my neck in 
contra dictionary flies
I take pride in the king of illiterate
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 

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 then she is not 
a witch like we had thought 
a down payment on another one at Salem's Lot

Serve the servants-oh no
that legendary divorce is such a bore

    I think it's a lot like nursery rhymes, designed to sooth the infant but say things like:
    "Rock a bye baby, on the tree top (?)
    When the wind blows-the cradle will rock
    When the bough breaks
    The cradle will fall (😱)
    CRADLE AND ALL!!! (WTF???)
    Gee! That makes ME relax! Strange-human nature. Maybe we like to feel we're not alone in our misery????
