Out here in the fields oh
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my music
I don't need to fight
To prove I'm right
I don't need to be

Don't cry
Don't grab your wallet
It's only major-label wasteland

    General Commentit's the first verse of baba o'reilly, a song about teenage rebellion, plus a fragment of another that he rewrote to comment on corporate rock crap.

    what he meant about turning into townshend is that he didn't want to go from being part of an original and vibrant band like nirvana and the who started out as, to the crappy middle-if-the-road corporate rock peddler townshend turned into. unfortunately kurt never got the chance.
