Scentless Apprentice
Nirvana Lyrics

Like most babies smell like butter
His smell smelled like no other
He was born scentless and senseless
He was born a scentless apprentice

Go away, go away

Every wet nurse refused to feed him
Electrolytes smell like semen
I promise not to sell your perfumed secrets
There are countless formulas for pressing flowers

Go away, go away
Go away

I lie in the soil and fertilize mushrooms
Leaking out gas fumes are made into perfume
You can't fire me because I quit
Throw me in the fire and I won't throw a fit

Go away, go away
Go away, go away
Go away, go away
Go away

I am sure, Kurt felt a lot like Grenouille. Same with me, before I even made the connection between the book and this song. Imagine, feeling like a parasite and finding a way, everyone loves you - your image- madly. I think it is a sign of depression. whilst depression may be dangerous it can also result in empathy and art.


Considering your comment was 5 or 6 years ago how'd it go?
