Stay Away Lyrics - Nirvana

Review The Song (10)




Stay Away Lyrics

Monkey see, monkey do
(I don't know why)
Rather be dead than cool
(I don't know why)
Every line ends in rhyme
(I don't know why)
Less is more, love is blind
(I don't know why)

Stay
Stay Away x3

Give an inch, take a smile
(I don't know why)
Fashion shits, fashion style
(I don't know why)
Blow it out, keep it in
(I don't know why)
have to have poison skin
(I don't know why)

Stay
Stay away x3

All right x2

Stay
Stay away x3

Monkey see, monkey do
(I don't know why)
Rather be dead than cool
(I don't know why)
Every line ends in rhyme
(I don't know why)
Less is more, love is blind
(I don't know why)

Stay
Stay away x3

All right
All right

Stay
Stay away x3

Stay away x5
God is Gay

God Is Gay? | Reviewer: Scotch | 2/7/12

Why are some people saying "Dont say god is gay". Kurt was never stuck to any religious belief, so he had the right to say it. Its almost like some people are trying to force religion on others, They can choose their faith as they see fit. (Just to say i respect everybodys religion and have no problems with any)



Kurt Rocks!!!! | Reviewer: Jenny | 11/28/11

Love the song :) Real good! Except for the part were he said god is gay. I love god. So kurt I love you, but watch your words towards our lord. Other then that I wish you were still performing <3
Why did you choose suicide...........



STAAAAAAAAAAAY, STAAAAAAY AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY | Reviewer: Squadalah | 11/2/11

I've always heard it as (That's not all right) which could very well fit with the other parts of the song. But, as everyone knows Kurt didn't like it when people looked for deep meaning in his songs, so i'll refrain.



Meaning | Reviewer: Kidd. | 11/3/11

Its saying that what someone does, everyone will follow to be "cool" but being cool is stupid and he doesn't want to follow that. And that was pretty much the whole ideals of Kurt summed up in one song. He didn't want to be mainstream.



ha-ha | Reviewer: Riaan | 1/31/11

Great song, but I just love that last line about God being gay. RIP Kurt, you were the real deal.
PS. I highly recommend "Heaver than Heaven" by Charles Cross, it's the definitive biography on Kurt.



Gotta Stay | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/27/10

I thought it was 'Gotta Stay', just to contradict itself, such as Give an inch, and 'take a mile' would make sense, but he says "Take a smile" instead, which really works. Singing about Stay Away, then the end being Gotta Stay, would make sense to me, to fit in with everything, him, the song/lyrics, his anger/confusion, etc...



Yeah it has a meaning | Reviewer: Mario Cavett | 4/28/10

People often dismiss the obvious and
read deeper, Kurt hated this and
said so many times.
So when I look at his music I look
at the basic meaning of words and phrases.
So his music says what he intended to say
"People always agree with what everyone says
not thinking for themselves"
Hence (All right) at the end of every phrase
And the infamous GOD IS "GAY" comment he makes at the end of this one. Well think of the original
definition to this word rather than the Slang meaning. He always wanted to get a rise out of hypocrites who claimed to be christian but lived wrong when he was young he experienced this. So sometimes his music will have rants like this in them just to get a rise out of so-called Christians. Reality is he never said he hated anything or anyone nor did he tell everyone he was GAY but the press tried to say he was so he wore a Dress on stage. Does this make him homosexual no (its just how he choose to lash out) and say that Gay's shouldn't be HATED or HURT for what they do. He was constantly searching for meaning to Life and the question why? He just didn't embrace "NORMAL" Whatever that means.
GOD BLESS KURT



sure a meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/14/09

It is a meaning of kurt, or a other thing about his feelings.. it is not meaning less but you dont know the meaning, and he sad that he didnt want them to think so deep about hes lyrics. But it has a meaning, but grunge is easy metal... So the music is easy, the text to... but its surely not true that it dont have a meaning....

Kurt my hero



Wow. | Reviewer: James | 11/13/09

I think this is another one of Kurt's songs that he wrote not intending for the lyrics to mean anything. Although he meant to write these nonsense lyrics, his lyrics often can be interpreted more than he had hoped. I like this song for it's simple yet (unintentional) meaningful lyrics.



NIRVANA the Best | Reviewer: Prabisha | 5/21/07

Nirvana is the most amazing band. every song of nirvana is awesome
