"Drain You" as written by and Kurt Cobain....
One baby to another says, "I'm lucky to have met you"
I don't care what you think unless it is about me
It is now my duty to completely drain you
I travel through a tube and end up in your infection
Chew my meat for you
Pass it back and forth in a passionate kiss
From my mouth to yours
I like you

With eyes so dilated, I've became your pupil
You've taught me everything without a poison apple
The water is so yellow
I'm a healthy student
Indebted and so grateful
Vacuum out the fluids
Chew my meat for you
Pass it back and forth in a passionate kiss
From my mouth to yours
I like you, you, you, you, you, you

One baby to another says, "I'm lucky to have met you"
I don't care what you think unless it is about me
It is now my duty to completely drain you
A travel through a tube and end up in your infection
Chew my meat for you
Pass it back and forth in a passionate kiss
From my mouth to yours
Sloppy lips to lips
You're my vitamins
I like you

    General CommentKurt wrote this about this chick he liked, Toby Vail, but she didn't like him back...he felt that whenever they were close that they could make it work, but then she just rejected him again...hence draining him

    General CommentOne baby to another says, "I'm lucky to have met you"

    Baby saying to teenage mom that he is happy to have been born and thus meet her.

    I don't care what you think unless it is about me

    self explanatory. He just wants nourishment. He does not have the mental capabilities yet to care about much else.

    It is now my duty to completely drain you

    Raising a child is draining, especially for a teenage mom. Self explanatory here.

    I travel through a tube and end up in your infection

    He travels through the filopian tubes, and is born into the "infection" that is his life and this earth.

    Chew your meat for you
    Pass it back and forth in a passionate kiss
    From my mouth to yours
    I like you -

    Extremely self explanatory

    With eyes so dilated, I've became your pupil

    Baby is ready to learn from mom.

    You've taught me everything about a poison apple

    Could be referencing the mom reading him fairy tales, because poison apples are in them. Also religion? I think it is just a reference to her teaching him in general of "fables" about how the world is not that bad of a place, but he knows better.

    The water is so yellow
    I'm a healthy student

    His urine is yellow, which is a sign of good health.

    Indebted and so grateful
    Vacuum out the fluids

    He is grateful to have not been aborted.

    Chew your meat for you
    Pass it back and forth in a passionate kiss
    From my mouth to yours
    I like you, you, you, you, you, you

    self explanatory

    Song MeaningThis song is about Cobain's first kiss. Notice the reference to the poison apple think back to your fairy tale days...

    I think a lot of people misinterpret this song because of the weird lyrics don't take them so literally. Cobain is actually just looking at kissing as an outsider(it almost seems as if he is disgusted by it too!). The tube is her mouth it is not a drug reference, ha ha.

    General CommentThis is a good love song. Its definitely one of the more upbeat nirvana songs, not quite so depressing. i enjoy listening to it.
