I love this fuckin song, why? cause to me its totally about smoking weed and getting high

the lines "Help me inhale, and I'll mend with you. We'll float around, and hang out on clouds, then we'll come down, and have a hangover" says it all

than you have the lines "Skin the sun, fall asleep, wish away, the soul is cheap, lesson learned, wish me luck, soothe the burn, wake me up"

when you smoke at the end of the day you get tired, or at least I do, and you just wish everything away. than we get those philosophical moments, i.e. "the soul is cheap". Also when i'm hi i might realize something i did earlier that day was fucked up nd i'll feel sorry which is "lesson learned". "Wish me luck" is just that stoner charm/sarcasm lol. nd sometimes you might burn your fingers when you smoke weed, so you "Soothe the burn". If you fall asleep, because weed makes us sleepy, somebody eventually wakes us up.

the song can mean many things to many ppl, the whole idea to me is ignorance is bliss, luckily most of us who smoke weed see through life's bullshit, so we have to deal with the burden of knowing what sadness this life brings, but that's why we have weed

Anyway damn Kurt, you genius, I think I'm Dumb...or maybe just happy :)

Na man I've got a book that has all his journals in it and he writes about alot of shit. He wrote that he wrote that song about weed. Like how it just drained him and just turned him mindless

i don't think that song is about weed at all. but i think music is always open for interpretation.

Wow man. When i saw this highdea i imedietley upvoted it. I"m sitting here after (a wake and bake) i took a "break" from highdeas, and getting on the upcomming for my first time in about a year and seeing my absolute favorite song by nirvana, as the title for a highdea. Man you made my day, good to know the save vibe is felt from that song. And in the future i'm getting "I think i'm dumb" on my right wrist, and " or maybe just happy" on my left wrist. But yeah nirvana is one of my favorite bands and i very often think about how awful curts' death was.

peace & pot

Lol.. clearly shows the effects of the gravity bong xD

Ha, same here. I just made my account like 3 days ago, so I found it very eerie that this would be right on the front page considering the username I chose. I think anyone who likes to smoke and doesn't always feel like they fit in with those around them gets the vibe you are talking about from this song. It's a somber song, but if you can relate, it's comforting.

This is not 4chan dude.

If you got ripped off by a "white trash drug dealer" it is your own fault for being that desperate to give your money to a white trash drug dealer.

Also... I don't think having random strangers blow up his track phone is really revenge for burning you for 80 bucks. He can just shut it off.

Please go back to myspace.hem

my aunt's year book has curt and buzz in it, when he went to monte. if you blow me i'll give to to you!

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 10:21am

Easily one of my favorite songs. It's where I got my user name from, and I'm looking into getting it tatted on me somewhere.

Oh, and the unplugged album is DEFINITELY my favorite album to burn to. I'm sure you have it, but if you don't, acquire it IMMEDIATELY. Dumb is one of the songs they do, btw.

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 11:19am

How about when he says "Maybe just happy" in reference to thinking he's dumb. I relate with that a lot. Because I see the world two ways. I could have every move calculated organized and thought out to obtain the most from the world and life, like going to school and playing my cards right, or I could be considered dumb, and be happy with the simple things, such as having a full belly, sleeping in, and doing simple kind deeds and not striving for perfection or anything more than I truly need.

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 12:41pm

nah, dude.. it's about heroine..
but good interpretation,

Sun, 08/26/2012 - 7:41pm

he's not an idiot.
despite how obvious it is that the song
is clearly about heroine. buuut, his way
of interpreting it was still lovely. let's
not be rude now.

Mon, 08/27/2012 - 12:12am

I <3 Nirvana. But you interpretation is wrooooong. Dumb is about feeling alone in the world, unable to connect with people, putting on a fake smile so people dont see the pain. Pain, addiction, loneliness. Not a great toking song.

I'm pretty sure that song is all about H bro. I've been down that ally and I listen to a lot of Nirvana. haha

I think he got it by the first comment that said it was about H. I fuckin love this song. When I saw this post I played the song just so I could listen to it while I read this. I like your interpretation. RIP KC
