You better watch out
You better beware
They're coming from all sides of the country
You better beware

Return of the rat
No, no, no, no!

You better confess
You had better confess
You start to confess and see them through it
You better confess

    General Commentthis is a cover of the wipers. nirvana had a lot of punk influences and did covers of cool old school punk bands, thats why many people say that kurt was punk at heart and so was his music. then it was categorized into its own category, grunge. KURT LIVES ON IN HIS MUSIC AND IN OUR HEARTS

    General CommentI think this song is about kurt's rat that he stepped on by mistake, named kitty. I just get the idea that he's talking about the Spider who better beware...because while he was trying to kill a spider is when he stepped on the rat, kitty. Thats just what the song means to me. Read Cross' "Heavier than Heaven"
