I can't say everything about it
In just one single song
I can't put how I feel in a package
And sell it back to everyone

But wait
There's another boy genius who's fucking gone
I hope the food tastes better in heaven
I know there's lots of rad queer boys up there
I hope every time they talk to you
They know they're lucky to be yr friend

Cause look
There's another boy genius who's fucking gone
And I wouldn't be so fucking mad so fucking
Pissed off if it wasn't so fucking wrong
It's all fucking wrong
It's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair

But no one said life was easy
Yeah, but no one said, no one said
Nothing's supposed to happen right?
No, no one told me anything
To prepare me for fucking this

There's another boy genius who's fucking gone
Don't tell me it don't matter
Don't tell me I've had three days to get over it
It won't go away
It just won't go away

    General Commentthis song was written about Gene Barnes, aka portia manson who died from aids related menengitus in 1996. R.I.P. stands for rest in pissed-off ness.

    General Commentobviously not every song about someone dying is about kurt cobain. but THIS song could definately be about him, because kathleen was friends with him

    General CommentDoes anyone know what "rad queer boys" is?
    Someone who's just regular gay or does it mean something more?

    General CommentYeah, I always assumed this was written about Kurt... Kathleen was a good friend of his, after all

    General Commenthmm.. odd, not once did it occur to me this could have been about Kurt before I read these comments or that it was written about Kathleen's friend with AIDS.

    "I hope the food tastes better in heaven"... great line.
