Mr. Moustache Lyrics - Nirvana

Review The Song (20)



Fill me in on your new vision
Wake me up with indecision
Help me trust your mighty wisdom
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Show me how you question, questions
Lead the way to my temptation
Take my hand and give it cleaning
As I eat cow - I am not proud.

Easy in an easy chair
poop as hard as rock
I don't like you anyway
-- Seal it in a box

Now You
Damn You


Fill me in on your new vision
Wake me up with indecision
sponsored links
Help me trust your mighty wisdom
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Show me how you question, question
Lead the way to my gestation
Take my hand and give it cleaning
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Easy in an easy chair
poop as hard as rock
I don't like you anyway
-- Seal it in a box

Now You
Damn You(x3)

Every time I look up Nirvana lyrics on this site, it's the same shit, baseless arguments about the lyrics, goddamn. Listen to "On a Plain" and tell me he wasn't intentionally making up shit on the spot. Or even look into the history of the creation of "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Who cares about any "messages"?

Mr. Moustache was based off anti-prejusism... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/26/11

The Title at least, Google Image "Kurt Cobain Mr. Moustache" You have a comic from his journal come up. The comic was drawn long before the song was written.

The lyrics were likely made to fit the song, and have little meaning behind them aside from the general idea.

If you image search the comic, you may understand better.

To seize this huge debate, Fish do have feelings, but the "vegetraian" monks of Christ noticed Jesus ate fish, after he rose from the dead. As such, they declared eating fish holy, and thus permitted in the Vegetarian Monk diet.

What? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/3/11

Why the hell the ppl is talking about the phrase of fish from "Something in the Way" in "Mr. Moustache"?. Anyway, fishes DO feel pain, but he didnt refer it like that. Remember he is pisces, so with "It's okay to eat fish, cause they don't have any feelings", like refering to himself. It's like a sarcastic sentence, as if someone bothers you with something thinking you don't care or DON'T FEEL anything about it

Nietzsche | Reviewer: nacho | 12/27/10

I agree with anonymous and manolo that it is about the filosofer friederich nietzsche. I also thought that some years ago. there are some coincidences: Nietzsche had a very big moustache, an the expresións "new vision", "mighty wisdom", "how you question, questions", "poop as hard as rock" could easily be identified with his filosofy

Mr. Moustache (nietzsche the philosopher) | Reviewer: Manolo | 8/12/10

I interpretated this song as as the way kobayn see the vision of the philosopher,"easy in a easy chair" is like saying how easy is be sitted and how hard is to feel it as easy with all our tied mind... this philosopher that maybe is nietzsche fill him with indecision, questions and questions, and eh isn't proud of himself, unsatisfied, tied...

Try writing | Reviewer: Jack | 6/20/10

If you've never written a song, then you might think most songs convey great wisdom. Most songs are random thoughts; few popular artists are genius wordsmiths. Kobain (met him, liked him, not the brightest bulb) himself explained that, on their first album, he made up words for the songs on the spot; being lucky if they even rhymed. It's up to the listener to read into it what they want; as with 99% of rock music. Sit down and try writing a song sometime.

Wow | Reviewer: Mrs. Cobain | 6/8/10

Ok first, don't believe everything you read. To those who are crapping on like oh I read this, i heard that.. Shut the fuck up. Kurt has passed, but his music will live on forever. Appreciate it for what it is & stop talking shit.

a lil fight | Reviewer: Green | 4/14/10

well you all fight about pretty much what kurt cobain said, err sung. anyways, in his early years he mainly sang random shit (hence the drugs that people tend to recognize him for) a little storyline can be followed i guess, but are you sure it WAS kurt that isnt proud of eating meat? or could it have been someone else in his life he was writing about? maybe it was just to vegetarian fans.

as for fish having any feelings, of course they do, but we dont feel them so we think its ok to eat fish... i think he was trying to get at the fact that we can never know someone's feelings, so we don't mind goin to war, we dont mind killing somebody, and we dont mind other people, we could care less. oh btw that somebody isn't just a random person (as soon as you saw it, you thought "yeah we do") that person is jesus

Re: the whole vego though | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/18/10

I read somewhere that he the only beleifs he had were what he had watched on late night documentaries when he was high...

I don't think that any of his lyrics really have anything to do with religion...

you make me laugh with your stupidity | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/25/09

"In something in the way, when kurt says it's ok to eat fish cause they don't have any feelings."

"All creatures, regardless of size, feel pain and emotion - it's a FACT. Stop spreading bullshit information, you ignorant little prick."

lol lol these posts are so irrelevant and retarded it makes me laugh to no end. it almost seems pointless to say, but seriously this conversation is a waste of time (and yes i realize its ironic that i'm wasting my time responding to it).

ps. yes all creatures feel pain (as they have pain receptors). however, not all have the ability to process emotions. so its not a fact, O Smart One.

Dumbfucks | Reviewer: God | 8/7/09

This lyric refers directly to Kurts desire to be a vegetarian, but being unable to commit to a meat free diet.

And to the idiot who said "fish feel no pain", you are a fucking idiot. Idiots like you should be shot. All creatures, regardless of size, feel pain and emotion - it's a FACT. Stop spreading bullshit information, you ignorant little prick.

fishy feelings | Reviewer: Ash | 7/15/09

In something in the way, when kurt says it's ok to eat fish cause they don't have any feelings, i think he was forced to eat fish out of need, as it was the only food available, but as an animal lover he felt guilty for eating fish. So he tried to justify eating fish and comfort himself by saying they don't have any feelings. its like hes making an excuse, and trying to convince himself.

hmmmm, | Reviewer: kat | 3/8/09

Kurt's lyrics were very deep, deeper than they seem so I don't take the "I eat cow- I am not proub", thing to literal. It's most likely a metaphor for something else he was going through. Oh, and he did say he really didn't care what his lyrics were about, he just needed songs to fill an album. Maybe he wanted people to think that? Who know? It's not as if we can ask him now :\ well all we can do is listen, feel, connect<3 R.I.P kurt<3

Maybe I'm thinking too hard... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/29/08

This song makes me think of Nietzsche. The man had an ungodly moustache, claimed to "question all questions", and in addition to calling women cows his writings often seem excessively misogynistic, racist, and macho.

I don't know if Cobain had that in mind when he wrote the song, but it would make some sense.

Yes I eat cow, it's not that costly. | Reviewer: Cow Muncher | 12/1/08

@ Sarah

I always got the feeling it meant that he was humble enough to eat cow despite the growing number of vegetarians. There's often pride in the attitudes of some vegetarians of how they can manage to stand not eating juicy succulent meat. Despite how the lack of protein often makes some rather stickly of course, even with a good intake of nuts and lentils...

I see it as an ironic statement as the good intentions can manifest themselves as a negative trait later in at times unexpected ways.

Yes, I eat cow - I couldn't really care so long as a cow is slaughtered quickly and doesn't suffer too much at the time.

Also, eating freerange chickens only in large numbers encourages growers of chickens to treat them more humanely!!! Eat chicken and...
Fight the power!!!
