On a Plain - Nirvana

I'll start this off without any words
I got so high that I scratched 'til I bled
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?
The finest day that I ever had was when I learned to cry on command
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?

I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

My mother died every night, it's safe to say
Don't quote me on that
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?
The black sheep got blackmailed again
Forgot to put on the zip code
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?

I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

Somewhere I have heard this before
In a dream my memory has stored
As defence I'm neutered and spayed
What the hell am I trying to say?
It is now time to make it unclear
To write off lines that don't make a sense
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?
One more special message to go and then I'm done and I can go home
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong, so what should I do?

I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
