This song showcases how unique Nirvana was, and how Kurt, while he found no worth in himself, was a great songwriter who had the world in front of him. What pains the most, though, is his voice. There is a lot of pain clear in his voice. Pain from his stomach, pain from touring, pain from life, pain from death.
He was a person who didn’t want to communicate his thoughts, but found a way to and this is what he brought to the world. Well, around 8 years after his death, but I think that context works in an emotional way that Kurt probably would have liked.
“ I always knew to come like this
Things have never been so swell
I have never failed to fail.”
