"Endless, Nameless" as written by Dave Grohl, Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic....
Silence
Here I am
Here I am
Silent

Bright and clear
It's what I am
I have
Died

Uhhhh
Uhhhh
Uhhhh
Uhhhh

Death
With violence
Excitement
Right here

Died
Go to hell
Here I am
Right here

Ow

No mas
No mas
No mas
No mas

Death
Is what I am
Go to hell
Go to jail

In back of that
Crime
Here I am
Take a chance
Dead

Die
Other interpretations possible.

    General CommentEndless, Nameless was made when Kurt got pissed over one of the recordings for Nevermind was going.. he couldn't get one of the songs(I forget which one) right and so he just started doing this, and the band followed. :B Oddly, this is one of my favorites on the cd

    General CommentI definately would not argue against the likelihood that this song's lyrics came out of an unplanned, stream of consciousness "rambling". However, I would not void the lyrics of meaning for that reason. Actually, that is an highly effective method to get to the heart of some matter or to get a reading on what's going on inside someone (including, especially,the unconscious level). This is why in English 101 students are asked to do all those "free writes" prior to "real writing".

    If one views the lyrics in that light, they become extremely meaningful and personal (to the author), IMHO. Expressions of the deepest pain, hopelessness to the point of feeling death is not only on the horizon, it may have already occured,and the calling for "mother" that is universal to everyone who is feeling at their "end"..i.e. the classic common knowledge that nearly all soldiers call for "mama" when they are dying of a mortal wound on the battlefield.

    General Commentendless nameless was a recording that Kurt and the band have been working on (to make an actual song.)

    after endless takes of lithium, Kurt got really frustrated. Actually coming to a point where he said somthing like, "fuck it. just hit it"
    then they started up endless nameless.

    The version on With The Lights Out, is their professional version of the song.. (believe it or not, haha jk)

    the actual take was released with the fist 1,000 copies of nevermind. The version on there is the one RIGHT after the litium sessions.

    (sorry this took so long, but i had to get my point through)

    General CommentI've heard this song came off of a mistake that Kurt kept on making while playing Lithium

    General Commentits a stream of consciousness of endless, nameless thought perceptions. kurt was disturbed by his fame and on being off and on heroin he probably got a lot of psychic feedback, so this song is a channel of what he heard, probably similar to what drove him to blast himself

    General CommentThe song is about Kurts stomach problems. At the end of it, if you listen carefully you can hear him scream the words "Fire, Inside" as if he is in deep pain.
    I dont know thats just what I think lol
    But yes, it is a fucking awesome somg.
