Breed is the 4th track off of Nevermind, Nirvana's second studio album.

InfoEdit

Kurt Cobain wrote this when he was first starting to more deeply explore his songwriting talent, and he had begun to write about the people around him. The original version was recorded at Smart Studios with Butch Vig, and it was the most complex song of the session: it began under the title "Immodium" - named after a friend's diarrhea medicine, yet there is very little in the version recorded at Smart to connect it with the medicine. Kurt instead used the title to suggest the running-on of the mouth. It was much more complex than much of Nirvana's early material, each chorus beginning and ending with the line "she said," implying that the song was meant to capture spoken dialogue, which is often overlooked today.

LyricsEdit

I don't care – X5
Care if it's old.
I don't mind - X4
Mind. I don't have a mind.
Get away - X4
Away, away from your home.
I'm afraid – X4
Afraid, ghost!

Even if you have...
Even if you need...
I don't mean to stare.
We don't have to breed.
We can plant a house,
We can build a tree
I don't even care.
"We could have all three,"
She said! ... - X8

I don't care – X4
Care, care if it's old.
I don't mind X4
Mind. I don't have a mind.
Get away - X4
Away, away from your home.
I'm afraid – X4
Afraid, ghost!

Even if you have...
Even if you need...
I don't mean to stare.
We don't have to breed.
We can plant a house,
We can build a tree.
I don't even care.
"We could have all three."
She Said... X8

*solo*

Even if you have...
Even if you need...
I don't mean to stare.
We don't have to breed.
We can plant a house.
We can build a tree.
I don't even care.
"We could have all three."
She said X8
She Saaaaaaiid... good...
