“The sun is gone, but I have a light.“ –Kurt Cobain
For me this quote means that even everything is gone you still have something you can hold on to. Everybody should have a light out there which guides you your way wherever you go.
Kurt Cobain explained:
„The lyric for “Dumb” seems peculiarly direct, a song about life’s simple, silly little pleasures. Like “I think I’m dumb/Or maybe just happy.” Is it intended to reflect that new-found optimism you’ve mentioned, or should we be reading it ironically? Cobain: “That’s just about people who’re easily amused, people who not only aren’t capable of progressing their intelligence but are totally happy watching 10 hours of television and really enjoy it. I’ve met a lot of dumb people. They have a shitty job, they may be totally lonely, they don’t have a girlfriend, they don’t have much of a social life, and yet, for some reason, they’re happy.”
I love to listen to that song and every other song by Kurt Cobain because he sang in such an emotional way.
“It’s better to burn out than to fade away.”
