This indecision got me climbing up the wall...
Been cheating gravity, and waiting on the fall...
How did this come over me, thought I was above it all...
Our hopes gone up in smoke, swallow your crown

Choke! On a kiss, thought I'd save my breath for you
Choke! On a kiss, thought I'd save my breath for you
Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm hanging on you
Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm pulling for you now
Give me some rope I'm coming, out of my head, into the clear when you... Go...
I... Come... Loose!

These premonitions got me crying up a storm
Leave your condition, this position does no harm

Choke! On a kiss, thought I'd save my breath for you
Choke! On a kiss, thought I'd save my breath for you
Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm hanging on you
Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm pulling for you now
Give me some rope I'm coming, out of my head, into the clear when you... Go...
I... Come... Loose!

(Drum & guitar solos)

Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm hanging on you
Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm pulling for you now
Give me some hope I'm coming through, I'm counting on you
Give me some rope I'm coming, out of my head, into the clear when you... Go...
I... Come... Loose!

    This song is about a relationship where both of people know it's going to end- they both want it to end, but they can't make the break. It's not good but they can't stand to be apart- they push each other away, and they pull each other apart- but then they also pull each other up when the other one needs the other. One thing is true about this song is this: the drums are awesome!

    I hear it as in a relationship. It gives and take. Give me some rope and don't smother me room but also wants to pull her back close at the same time. Maybe a lil love and hate! Agree with another, it's about commitment and balance of the good and bad.
    Disagree with another that he is stealing from cobain. Might have learned a lot collaborating with him but ff is not grunge nirvana!
    Plus, give the guy credit for being in 2 great rock bands. Most go away to never be heard from again. Something to be said for striking lightning twice.
    Lastly, I know kurt was nirvana, but there may be something to dave being a major contributor to one of the greatest rock bands of all time. If not, he was hell of a drummer. Now hell of guitarist and frontman!
    Salute.

    I need you so much you need to help me. But I need you so much you need to give me some rope so I can hang myself. I need you so much I need you in order to continue on. But I need you so much I can't continue. Kind of a suicide song. Not my favorite theme. But I love this song because it depicts what most people go through at one time or another.
