She lies in a bedpan with her name scrawled on her back
It sure sounds funny when you say his name like that
He lies in an empty room with his hair burnt to the back
It sure sounds funny when you say his name like that

Ship me off to the morgue I'm ready to be buried alone way down in my bed
And I'm alone without the sun
Send me off to the morgue I'm ready to be buried away down in my bed
And I'm alone without the sun
Please just take one

And by the grace of god go I into the great unknown
Thing are gonna change in our favor
And if we gather, if we fall over the great unknown
Things are gonna change in our favor

100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 Oh they're found dead, dead
And I am numb from watching TV
100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 Oh they're just there, there
And I am numb from Watching TV
Please don't break me

And by the grace of god go I into the great unknown
Things are gonna change in our favor
And if we gather, if we fall over the great unknown
Things are gonna change in our favor

(Instrumental break)

Please just take one....

And by the grace of god go I into the great unknown
Things are gonna change in our favor
And if we gather, if we fall over the great unknown
Thing are gonna change in our favor

    General Commentyes, it was about Kurt. the 1,2,300 dead if memory serves was referencing the suicides that soon followed. I worked freelance for MTV at the time and this growing trend was vastly under reported by most outlets for fear of escalation. For Squirrels, from FL would have been aware of this. This boom in suicides was one of the reasons for public statements made by Courtney (don't even get me started), Krist, Dave and others. And to Musixex, are you kidding? "...He lies in an empty room with his hair burnt to the back". Just how do you think his hair got that way? Shotgun perhaps?
    Of course the title is a play on "the might casey at bat" by Ernest Thayer but Casey becomes K.C. for Kurt.
    This song never fails to bring tears to my eyes especially considering the deaths the band would soon suffer which almost seem foreshadowed by the song. A really tragic time actually with Layne following though in a far slower fashion
    The only song in my opinion that did justice to its subject and in a far from overt way that Kurt would have approved of. Still miss him

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs of the 90's, I almost enjoy the fact that no one knows it. Definetly about Kurt, and I still shiver at the line, "It sure sounds funny when you say his name like that". Beautiful

    General CommentSeems like a very good song. I have never heard it, but recently I was told it was about Kurt Cobain. Anyone that mentions a Legend like Kurt in their lyrics, I'm going to pay attention. Rest in Peace Kurt, your Legacy lives on.

    General CommentI kinda thought that's what was being hinted at. Strange and possibly ironic that the vocalist for this band was also killed in what I would say to be their prime. Too bad no one really even knows who these guys are/were... Fanfuckingtastic song.

    General CommentI offen hear this in NU 107 since I was a kid
    and I never thought that I'm gonna search the
    history of this band. according to wikipedia.org
    the vocalist of this band together with some members died in head on collision while they were
    touring sad I must say one of the greatest band in the 90's.....----Paul

    General CommentI understand that the song was a tribute to Kurt Cobain, but I wonder if the "100...600 found dead and I am numb from watching TV" verse had something to do with the 1994 Rwanda tragedy. Shortly after Kurt Cobain died and ten years before the ongoing crisis in Darfur, there was massive, somewhat mind-numbing TV coverage of a horrible civil war in Rwanda in which nearly a million innocent civilians were hatefully killed in cold blood. I was just pointing that out and, if that verse was commentary on the Rwanda's infamous spotlight or not, I want to see if anyone has an answer.
