Milk It - is the eighth song on Nirvana's third and last studio album In Utero. It's featured as a B-side of the "Heart-Shaped Box" single.

Milk it has very quiet verses and a very loud chorus. The lyrics touch on medical themes, just like the majority of tracks on In Utero. The lyrics most probably talk about depression, drug addiction and suicide.

According to Cobain 'Milk It' is "an example of the more experimental and aggressive direction the band’s music had been moving in the months prior to the sessions at Pachyderm Studio".

A demo of the song can be found on "With The Lights Out" box set and a live version (played in Seattle Center Arena, January 7th 1994) on "From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah".

Lyrics:

I am my own parasite

I don't need a host to live

We feed off of each other

We can share our endorphins

Doll steak!

Test meat!

Look, on the bright side is suicide

Lost eyesight, I'm on your side

Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing

Lack of iron and/or sleeping

I own my own pet virus

I get a pet and name her

Her milk is my shit

My shit it is her milk

Test meat!

Doll steak!

Look, on the bright side is suicide

Lost eyesight, I'm on your side

Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing

Lack of iron and/or sleeping

Doll steak!

Test meat!

Look on the bright side is suicide

Lost eyesight I'm on your side

Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing

Lack of iron and/or sleeping

Protector of the kennel

Ecto-plasma, Ecto-skeletal

Obituary birthday

Your scent is still here in my place of recovery!
