Just because I know a way
I'm the nigger of your dreams
Your the nigger you will never see
Everyone can take from you & everyone bleed from you
They can tell your guts are true
But why do you
Don't just jump
I'm the nigger that you know
I'm the nigger I told you so
Your a nigger I'm one too
And everyone knows what to do
Just fucking jump

    General CommentI don't believe Hole ever wrote this song. Isn't it a cover song? It sounds like it. It certainly doesn't sound like their style of writing. It sounds like an old song from the '20s or something. And anyway, I think Hole only played this once at a concert. That's it.

    General CommentEven if they did write it, and it's not just a cover song, they aren't\weren't trying to be racist about it.

    Songs don't just have one meaning.

    General CommentIt's kind of like Patti Smith with "Rock 'n' Roll Nigger"
    They aren't using it as a term to condemn. They are using it, showing that it has nothing to do with race, actually. And that people shouldn't be so afraid of a word.

    General CommentI don't think they mean the word as in a race term. I think they are using it to show someone who is treated bad by society, and is basically a pariah.

    General CommentYeah. Nigger isn't being used as a racist slur. So you can chill with your PC bullshit.

    General CommentI read somewhere that "Nigger of your dreams" was just a jam played on the spot live with improvised lyrics, so its not a cover of a twenties song (i cant imagine a twenties song with the word "fucking" but eh, you never know)
