"Lithium (Nirvana cover)" as written by and Kurt Cobain....
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
Hey, hey, hey

I'm so happy 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

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

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

I'm so happy 'cause today
I've found my friends,
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, that's okay, 'cause so are you,
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

Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
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 killed you, I'm not gonna crack

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

    General CommentThey absolutely do not. Its a reasonable version of the song a cover of a classic and nothing else. Too much going on in the background. Nirvana's version is far superior.

    General CommentLesse....
    I guess its tradition for them to do this at pretty much every show. I want to say they do it as a tribute to Nirvanna, and I am sure they have some tribute in it, but they make it their own as well. I just don't know how they make it their own yet. Maybe because they have been trying (unsuccessfully) to break the mold of the happy, cheery, feel good band. This song is kind of dark, kind of like they're saying "we ain't all flowers and rainbows!"

    General CommentOk, it's a song about insanity, mainly bipolar disorder and probably the effects of the medication for it too (lithium). Looove this song, I can really relate to it being bipolar myself, but only the Spree version of it...somehow they make it sound so much darker and wilder and crazier than Nirvana... they sorta capture the vibe and meaning of the lyrics better
