Imperial Teen – You're One lyrics

(you're one you're one) it's with you i wanna be
(you're one you're one) peace and love and empathy
(you're one you're one) tie me off i wanna be
(you're one you're one) shooting up the enemy
Shooting up the enemy yeah
We played a show and no one came
We played and played it just the same
If there's no ears then there's no sound
If there's no tree then there's no ground
(you're one you're one) it's with you i wanna be
(you're one you're one) peace and love and empathy
(you're one you're one) tie me off i wanna be
(you're one you're one) shooting up the enemy
Shooting up the enemy yeah
That crown of thorns you wear it well
You bought it cheap it's time to sell
You say you're sick from altitude
A crown's a crown what can you do?
You take it like a man boy
You take it like a man boy...
(you're one you're one) it's with you i wanna be
(you're one you're one) peace and love and empathy
(you're one you're one) tie me off i wanna be
(you're one you're one) shooting up the enemy
Shooting up the enemy yeah
I'd pump your stomach if i thought
It'd stop the pain your doctor bought
Forever now forever then
Ignore the flower feed the stem
You take it like a man boy
You take it like a man boy...
You kiss me like a man boy
You kiss me like a man boy...

    I've always interpreted this song to be very overtly about Kurt Cobain and his suicide, which it is, but I have recently found out this is a love song to Kurt from the gay band leader - never knew that! I think the songwriter was maybe a little mad about Kurt committing suicide, for example, "You say you're sick from altitude. A crown's a crown what can you do?" This goes hand in hand with Kurt's suicide note wherein he complains about not being able to take being a superstar (saying he felt performing had become about "clocking in"). Under this lens, the song is actually quite a scathing one, basically saying Kurt was a disappointment for not just dealing with the pressure of being a star and continuing to focus on the importance of the music.
