    990,155 views 5 years ago
    Kurt Cobain wrote this about his life. He talks about living under a nearby bridge, which he claimed happened when he got kicked out of the house for dropping out of high school and refusing to get a job. He expresses his feelings and emotions by saying "something in the way" - he thought everything was in the way every time he tried to feel better. The lyrics to this song were spray painted by Cobain on the wall of the bridge that he claimed to have lived under when he left his home. It was later painted over in a clean up of the city. When recording this song, Kurt Cobain whispered his vocals so quietly that producer Butch Vig had to turn his recording levels all the way up.

    Lyrics:
    Underneath the bridge
    The tarp has sprung a leak
    And the animals I've trapped
    Have all become my pets
    And I'm living off of grass
    And the drippings from the ceiling
    It's okay to eat fish
    'Cause they don't have any feelings

    (x3)
    Something in the way, mmm
    Something in the way, yeah, mmm

    Underneath the bridge
    The tarp has sprung a leak
    And the animals I've trapped
    Have all become my pets
    And I'm living off of grass
    And the drippings from the ceiling
    It's okay to eat fish
    'Cause they dont't have any feelings

    (x4)
    Something in the way, mmm
    Something in the way, yeah, mmm Show less
