Asked by Wallace and Halperin to give examples of how he differed from his dead friend, Carlson said, "Well, for one thing, I'm a Republican. I was a big fan of [the elder] George Bush; I liked what he stood for. Kurt couldn't stand him. He really liked Clinton."
In other instances of his questionable judgment, Carlson reportedly introduced Cobain to heroin and admittedly purchased the shotgun used to kill him.
Carlson always has insisted that Cobain was not suicidal, which is why he didn't hesitate to buy his gun-loving friend a gun. Read Wallace and Halperin's book Love & Death for why Cobain's other guns had been confiscated and how that fits into speculation that Cobain was set up to be murdered in a staged suicide.
I am somewhat proud to have recorded evidence from back in 1991 of my name-checking Dick Cheney, then Bush #41's secretary of defense and nowhere near the household name (and emblem of evil) he would become as running mate and VP for Bush #43.
The lyrics are mostly clear and self-evident, except for the last line, which is garbled so I will spec it out here:
New World Order Man
He's as old as Eve and Adam
"New World Order Man"
