Breed Lyrics

[Verse: Kurt Cobain]
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care, care if it's old
I don't mind, I don't mind, I don't mind
I don't mind, mind, don't have a mind
Get away, get away, get away
Get away, away, away from your home
I'm afraid, I'm afraid, I'm afraid
I'm afraid, afraid, ghost

[Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
Even if you have, even if you need
I don't mean to stare, we don't have to breed
We could plant a house, we could build a tree
I don't even care, we could have all three

[Post-Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said

[Verse: Kurt Cobain]
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
I don't care, care, care if it's old
I don't mind, I don't mind, I don't mind
I don't mind, mind, don't have a mind
Get away, get away, get away
Get away, away, away from your home
I'm afraid, I'm afraid, I'm afraid
I'm afraid, afraid, ghost

[Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
Even if you have, even if you need
I don't mean to stare, we don't have to breed
We could plant a house, we could build a tree
I don't even care, we could have all three

[Post-Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said

[Chorus: Kurt Cobain]
Hey!
Even if you have, even if you need
I don't mean to stare, we don't have to breed
We could plant a house, we could build a tree
I don't even care, we could have all three

[Outro: Kurt Cobain]
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said (She said), she said (She said)
She said, said good
