Kurt Cobain described this song as
“About people, and what they’re expected to act like.”
The lyrics are intentionally contradictory and confusing, with one line rebutting the next:
“As a friend, as an old enemy”
“Take your time, hurry up”

 The lyrics to this song from 1971,
speak of coming out of a war-torn world together on a quest for peace.

Although the tune was written and released in the thick of the Vietnam War era, the lyrics ring just as true these days as they did 40 years ago.
