"Scentless Apprentice (Rehearsal)" as written by and David Eric/cobain Grohl....
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 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

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

    General Commentem this sounds gross but kurt talked about his first ever memory or something being like when he was born wanting to go back inside his moms womb so i think this bit "Back in the hole" is saying i want to go back inside.

    General CommentActually, that's not gross at all, it's just Kurt Cobain...

    I'm interested in where you got the lyrics too. Are these really official?
