Dumb

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
And I have a light
The day is done
And I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Maybe just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy

My heart is broke
And I have some glue
Help me inhale
Mend it with you
We'll float around
Hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down
Have a hangover
Have a hangover
Have a hangover
Have a hangover

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
Soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

I'm not like them
And I can pretend
The sun is gone
And I have a light
The day is done
And I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Maybe just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy

I think I'm dumb (x12)

    Someone hurt him and there is a hole in his soul. Anything he uses to curb the pain doesn't help. Whe he says think i'm just happy, he is beeing sarcastic because he knows he is not happy. ... This song hits cose to home

    @ "Imafreak". He didn't throw his life away. He was afraid to fade ut and he didn't like the attention he was getting from all of his fans. He felt that the original purpose for creating Nirvana was being defyed therefore his life ended. In his famous words...Its better to burn out then to fade out.
