Nirvana – On A Plain lyrics

I'll start this off without any words
I got so high that I scratched 'til I bled
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?
The finest day that I ever had was when I learned to cry on command
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?

I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

My mother died every night, it's safe to say
Don't quote me on that
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?
The black sheep got blackmailed again
Forgot to put on the zip code
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?

I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

Somewhere I have heard this before
In a dream my memory has stored
As defence I'm neutered and spayed
What the hell am I trying to say?
It is now time to make it unclear
To write off lines that don't make a sense
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?
One more special message to go and then I'm done and I can go home
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?

I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
I can't complain

    He is writing about his isolation having to experience he mother's abuse by her second husband "my mother died every night" he felt like an outcast in his family " the black sheep was blackmailed again" I don't know about "love myself better than you". I'm on a plain, I'm guessing plane/plain, he's removed himself mentally from this difficult situation back then & now he's literally on an airplane often, high above everything temporarily. Maybe a drug reference? He also does state at the end that "it is now time to make it unclear"
