Hole – Malibu lyrics

Crash and burn
All the stars explode tonight
How'd you get so desperate?
How'd you stay alive?
Help me, please, burn the sorrow from your eyes
Oh come on be alive again
Don't lay down and die

Hey, hey
You know what to do
Oh baby drive away, to Malibu

Get well soon
Please don't go any higher
How are you so burnt when you're barely on fire?
Cry to the angels
I'm gonna rescue you,
I'm gonna set you free
Tonight, baby
Pour over me

Hey, hey
We're all watching you
Oh baby fly away, to Malibu

Cry to the angels
And let them swallow you
Go and part the sea, yeah, in Malibu

And the sun goes down
I watch you slip away
And the sun goes down
I walk into the waves
And the sun goes down
I watch you slip away
And I walk...
And I knew
Love would tear you apart
Oh, and I knew the darkest secret of your heart

Hey, hey
I'm gonna follow you
Oh baby fly away, yeah, to Malibu
Oceans of angels
Oceans of stars
Down by the sea is where you drown your scars

I can't be near you
The light just radiates
I can't be near you
The light just radiates

    Courtney wrote this album before kurt killed him self so its not about that. Its about how kurt was in too deap with his addiction. That he needed to go out to malibu (a recovery center) and get help. "how'd you get so desperate? How'd you stay alive? " talking about kurt and his weakness but his numb existance. "oh come on be alive again dont lay down and die" to go get help so he could live.
