    Emotional Abusive Relationship. "She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak" - Courtney took advantage of Kurt. "Meat eating orchids" - something beautiful but vicious. "Forever in debt to your priceless advice" - Kurt used to say this to Courtney to make her mad. Also, Courtney gave Kurt a heart-shaped box with things in it when they first started their relationship. However! There are many opinions on the meaning of this song. Some think it's about cancer, some believe it's about him thinking about committing suicide, and some think he was just spaced out when he wrote it. So, whatever. I'm just giving a meaning. Doesn't have to be right.

    "she eyes me like a pisces when i am weak" picses are dependent; cobain is a piceses and he unhealthily depends on courntey for s** probably, "i've been locked inside your heart shaped box for weeks" kurt's stuck in a bad relationship with courtney, "throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back" shows he wants to start his life all over again, "hey wait i've got a new complaint, forever in debt to your priceless advice" bad advice giving. Nuff said. "cut myself on angel hair and baby's breath" kurt didn't want a baby but courtney did and now he's stuck in the relationship even more because theres a child, "i wish i could eat your cancer when you turn back" cancers are clingy and never let go, courtney wont let kurt "free", he wishes that would go away, eating it would get rid of it? Xd all in all, it's basically about kurt and courtney's relationship and how kurt doesn't like it and wishes it never happened or he could get away. --audrey.
