It's Better To Burn Out Than Fade Away

I don't know what the setting was, but i was looking down the barrel of a gun about to shoot myself in tribute to Kurt Cobain.
Since he died I've missed the comfort in being sad.
I kept telling myself to look on the bright side is suicide.
I wanted to be immortal.
Telling everyone to give me a Leonard Cohen after world.
So i could sigh eternally....with Kurt.
He kept telling me he wasn't happy at what he does.
So all i told him was to quit.
So he did....forever
