I Hate Myself And Want to Die Lyrics - Nirvana

Review The Song (92)

Runny nose and runny yolk
Even if you have a cold still
You can cough on me again
I still haven't had my fulfill

In the someday what's that sound? (x4)

Broken heart and broken bones
Think of how a castrated horse feels
One more quirky cliched phrase
You're the one I wanna refill

I want to die god please kill me now? (x4)

Most people don't realize
That two large pieces of coral,
Painted brown, and attached to his skull
With common wood screws can make a child look like a deer

I want to die god please kill me now? (x4)

Runny nose and runny yolk
Even if you have a cold still
You can cough on me again
I still haven't had my fulfill

I want to die god please kill me now? (x4)

Not sarcastic at all | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/30/13

Any Nirvana's song is meaningless - they're just made from hate, rage, heroin, personal experiences and, for god's sake, really good poetry. I'm a huge fan of Kurt and I will never get to meet him, just like all of you, so I'm not going to start to ramble on about how he was so highly depressed and how he hated what he was, but I really don't think the title of this song was sarcastic at all. It's a pity that he felt that way, he was a genius, rich and famous. He had every talent, except the one that helps you using them. Killing yourself is never the solution, quitting drugs surely is.

Don't think too much into the lyrics of the song. Kurt said himself that he usually just threw together old poetry last minute because he's lazy. And you're wrong about the title......In Utero ( not lithium) was originally supposed to be titled " I hate myself and I want to die" but the record label wouldn't allow it. Please know your facts if you claim to be a Nirvana fan

hi | Reviewer: will | 5/1/13

I think this song means he hates himself and wants to die. He wants people to abuse and destroy him by talking about broken bones and stuff. Also he was originally going to call lithium I hate myself and want to die

here... | Reviewer: JRH | 8/10/12

I'm sick all the time
I let people abuse me because it feels good
Things are never going to get better
My sorrow runs so deep it physically hurts
Morbid humor is the only thing that can make me smile

dont try to overthink it | Reviewer: huge nirvana fan | 8/4/12

Don't overthink it, because no matter what we think hes singing about, its not like we can just go ask Kurt or something. (Unless you die and meet him on the "other side ") anyways, if you really want to know, don't analyze the lyrics. Just sit down on the floor, start playing some Nirvana music, and try to get into the right state of mind. Then maybe his music will make sense. And if it doesn't, who cares? Music isn't meant to be analyzed anyway.

yeah | Reviewer: raven | 6/27/12

he is dead. he cant hear us. i dont wanna say anything about himself or the lyrics or whatever. you can never know, at least i can never know and i just know that. i listen to his songs cause i feel what i'm about to feel. they take me deeper in any mood that i'm in.for now, i hate myself and i sense my hatred from his lyrics.

I guess the lyrics changed. | Reviewer: Chris H | 1/6/12

These sure aren't the lyrics to the version on the "With The Lights Out" box set.

I think Kurt's biggest weakness was his incredibly poor diction. It's a shame that a lot of his great rhymes and lines were effectively lost due to his mumbling delivery. At least the lyrics for Nevermind and In Utero were officially published with the Lithium single and the In Utero album package, but quite a few great non-album tracks will remain a mystery as far as exactly what Kurt was saying.

That's some good and pretty plentiful text mate, about god. Hope it didn't scare anyone away. Anyway, I'd recommend you to check out the believing peers of your town, thats an easy way to see who god is, if praying don't quite catch you.

fags | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/28/11

Your all wrong. Kurt kobain has even said himself that his lyrics have no meaning. He was a severe heroin addict an wuld shoot up an get drunk before just about every single concert and song recording. This shit is jus wat comes out of his head. He didn't care about music enough to sit an make sum big fucking conspiracy within his lyrics. Don't think I'm bashing him either bcuz I'm one of the biggest kurt cobain fans ull ever meet. I'm jus not gonna listen to people kiss his ass because he's a fucking pussy an decided to kill himself cuz he was to rich an to many people liked him.

I feel sorry for Him | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/17/11

I feel sorry for what Kurt had to go through, he could've gone so much farther, but his addiction and depression destroyed him. But don't let yourselves be destroyed by depression, addiction and hopelessness. There is hope for those who believe. Don't end up like Kurt as he described himself on the suicide note he wrote "miserable, self-destructive death rocker". There is happiness, love and peacefulness out there, you just have to look somewhere different than where you have been looking for: bars, concerts, parties, drugs, alcohol, etc.
The only place where you can find these things is in God's presence. Get to know Him and He'll show you the way to true happiness, true love... What He can give you is more than what drugs can make you feel. Drugs and alcohol can give you temporary pleasure, but what God gives you is forever. Stop trying to fulfill yourself with drugs, and things you know are destroying you. That's what Kurt was refering to when he says "I still haven't had my fulfill" because he was trying to fulfill himself with the wrong things. Let yourself be fulfilled by the love of God, it is only His lovethat can fulfill our emptiness <3
Dare to come to God, He's been waiting for you to love you and heal you. Don't wait until tomorrow because it could be too late. I wish Kurt would've had the opportunity to accept Jesus as his savior! But it's not too late for you... Just say "Jesus forgive all my sins, today I accept you as my savior, take control over my life, heal me, and restore me, in the name of Jesus amen." look for a Church where you can get to know God more, He has great plans for your life, just find Him, and He'll show you the way ;)

The chorus. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/25/11

When I was fourteen, I was obsessed with backwards masking, and I kept replying the chorus backwards on my CD player, and it always sounded like "I hate myself I hate myself I hate myself I hate myself." Has anyone ever tried that? Or was I just a fourteen-year old with an overactive imagination?

to be honest... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/11/11

There is no reason for all the cussing and arguing. Everyone has their own views and thats ok. In my opinion, the song is great. Whether or not he was high, and no matter what anyone else thinks is wrong with it, the song is just plain awesome. I love the title, its the first thing that caught my attention, that and because it is the greatest band, Nirvada. The lyrics are strange and confusing but at the same time make sense and seem reasonable. You just have to be the kind of person who can make sense of these sorts of things. The song is good enough that you don't even need to understand the lyrics. Just listen and enjoy....

A great rock song. | Reviewer: Mad Poet | 12/16/10

This was the 1st Nirvana song I heard. They did it live for several years before recording it. I heard Kurt play it at a keg party in Montesano in 1987. I heard Kurt, Krist and Chad do it at the Off Ramp in 1988. I heard Kurt, Krist and Dave do it at the Showbox Market Place in 1990. Yep, I am old and yep, this is just a great rock song. That's all it is and that's all it is. Both amazing and totally unimpressive at the same time. It is just a really great rock song.

Agreement | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/15/10

Aaaahhh! Memories, sweet like the nice odor of rotten flesh uhahahahaha!!! A masterpiece and I hear it every wake second of my life, even without having anything to play it from ;)

Guys? Why asking about sense and story? I understand Nirvanas music perfectly... Why? Because im fucked and I JUST DONT CARE. Here is my interpretation Junkeystyled:

* Runny nose and runny yolk
* Even if you have a cold still
* You can cough on me again
* I still haven't had my fulfill

It means: "i am a junkey" If you hav a doubt on this, just keep on consuming a period of time as lot as it is possible. You WILL get the same thoughts: "Fuck, my body is fucked, fuck these Junkeys suck, fuck im not fucked enough."

* In the someday what's that s sound?

Somebody said "Someday you will have passed these situation. Someday you will be normal, clean and happy". What a nonsense...

I think you know what im talking about: To understand the lyrics, just let your mind get rid of interpretation and analysis, imagine how kurt cobain lived and try to feel in a similar way. Just about the boy-deer thing:

I myself feel like a oldlooking child because of my drug abuse. I dont know, but it could be a common phenomenon and then think about todays society and you want to spit lyrics like Kurt yourself ;)

Even IF they mean anything and even if I got it totally wrong: Kurt doesnt care. ;)

Sorry for English, Im German, I was lazy in school and I like to get REALLY High(unfortunately, they make me get stoned everytime :D...)


Enjoy good music, out there is a lot of crap, dont argue about songs or artists!

Have a nice day

yeah i said it | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/20/10

everyone on here arguing about this song are a bunch of retards. kurt wrote the song cause it kicks ass and evokes our rock the fuck out equilibrium. if you are going to over analyze a song he wrote while high on heroin, why dont you shoot up and then it should all make sense to you. Stop trying to think you are so fucking smart cause you think you know why this song came to fruition and enjoy the masterpiece. That is all he wanted.

ps you really want to fuck with your head go listen to tool and try to make sense of maynard keenan's lyrics. your head will fucking explode trying to figure out why he sings what he does.
