"Help Me I'm Hungry" as written by and Kurt Cobain....
Hold me, there's too much tension
Grade me, I'm fucking hungry
Help me, I'm fucking cornered
Grade me, you might be right

Lightning fucking around in my head
Fierce, dangerous, pathetic, fucked up
People freaking every day
White lights inside
What do you want, fuck

Cold naked man, picked off his scabs and
Fed them to the pigeons
Help him, he's fucking cornered
Grade him it might be fun

Lightning fucking around in my head, etc
Hold me, something's happening
Help me, somebody help me
Hold me, I'm fucking hungry
Help me, I'm right here, who are you?

Naked man you say you saw
Fed them, to the pigeons
Help him, he's fucking cornered
Grade him, it might be fun

Lightning fucking around in my head, etc...
Help me, I'm fucking hungry
Help me, I'm fucking up
Hold me, some fucking help

    General Commentwell, if you listen to the song.. it's pretty obvious he's screaming his soul out for... a shortcoming

    General CommentI think its just an awesome live song. I think this song would really get a crowd going. Some of Kurt's best songs were live only, like this.

    General CommentJust heard the official release of this song. I got to say it's got some of the trippiest vocals I have heard from Kurt.

    General Commentthank god for bootleggers!! i love this song, its raw, its lyrics make you think, its by nirvana!! i prefer the version on outcesticide II to the one on the boxed set though, the lyrics are a bit clearer, [and a bit different], and there is better instrumentation [if that's even a word :P]

    General Commentthis song is beautiful- he's crying out for a way out basically. its totally about frustration in everyway. except its actually 'degrade me' as written in kurteosey's journals. ♥ kurt cobain

    General CommentIts called "help me I'm hungry" and its just a weird song, he might have made it up on stage.
