Best Answer

"Come as You Are" is rather a song of contradictions than irony.

Come as you are, as you were.... take your time, hurry a friend, as an old enemy....

As you can see, the lyrics are purposefully contradictory to tell about relationships through time and acceptance of yourself and other people.

Response: Good answer. The irony I was speaking of is that he sings over and over that he hasn't got a gun. He swears that he hasn't got a gun. Unfortunately that's how he died by his own hand with a gun. That is a contradiction as well.

... to the person that wrote he did have a gun... you are an idiot!
