"Lounge Act" as written by and Kurt Cobain....
Truth covered in security
I can't let you smother me
I'd like to but it couldn't work
Trading off and taking turns
I don't regret a thing

I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel
And I wanted more
Than I could steal
I'll arrest myself
And wear a shield
I'll go out of my way
To prove I still
Smell her on you

Don't, tell me what I wanna hear
Afraid of never knowning fear
Experience anything you need
I'll keep fighting jealousy
Until it's fucking gone

I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel
And I wanted more
Than I could steal
I'll arrest myself
And wear a shield
I'll go out of my way
To prove I still
Smell her on you

Truth covered in security
I can't let you smother me
I'd like to but it wouldn't work
Trading off and taking turns
I don't regret a thing

I've got this friend, you see
Who makes me feel
And I wanted more
Than I could steal
I'll arrest myself
And wear a shield
I'll go out of my way
To make you a deal
We've make a pact
To learn from who
Ever we want
Without new rules
We'll share what's lost and what we grew
They'll go out of their way
To prove they still
Smell her on you
They still, smell her on you
Smell her on you

    General CommentIf Kurt killed a cat he did it in a manic episode, and I can guarantee he felt very fucking sorry when the depression kicked in.

    I have the exact same mental conditions as Kurt and I've been charactarized as "highly intelligent" my IQ is 130, and I think I can relate to him like few others. This song also describes a past relationship of mine perfectly down to every last sentence.

    anywho, here's my intepretation:

    Truth - covered in security : Telling the truth to the extent it's making you look bad.

    I can't let you smother me
    I'd like to, but it couldn't work : I think this one speaks for itself.

    Trading off and taking turns
    I don't regret a thing : Not regretting getting high behind her back?

    And I've got this friend, you see
    Who makes me feel and I'm
    Wanted more than I could steal
    I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield
    I'll go out of my way to prove I still
    I still smell her on you : Drug-euphemism, possibly mary jane. Cops use more resources on
    busting addicts than on petty criminals and thieves (wanted
    more than I could steal)and he would turn himself in and
    tell the cops she's on drugs too and would go out of his way
    to prove it. (maybe he had drugs hidden at her place, and/or
    Maybe he had smoked weed while wearing her clothes.

    Don't - tell me what I wanna hear
    Afraid of never knowing fear : Dont give me false hope.

    Experience anything you need : This I think is his girlfriend nagging him about wanting to
    live her life and experience things while she is young.
    (Fuck other guys)
    I'll keep fighting jealousy
    Until it's fucking gone : Bipolar love, no self-respect.


    We've made a pact to learn
    from whoever we want
    without new rules : Agreeing that they can fuck around, even though she is the only
    one who actually wants to. (Don't tell me what I want to hear)


    If this does not make sense to you, then you are probably not bipolar, or I am just too stoned to make sense.
