"Scoff" as written by and Kurt Cobain....
In my eyes, I'm not lazy
In my face, it's not over
In your room, I'm not 'll'over
In your eyes, I'm not worth it

Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my, gimmie back my
Gimme back

Heal a million, kill a million
Peel a million, feel a million
Heal a million, kill a million

In my eyes, I'm not lazy
In my face, it's not over
In your room, I'm not 'll'over
In your eyes, I'm not worth it

Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my, gimmie back my
Gimme back

Heal a million, kill a million
Peel a million, feel a million
Heal a million, kill a million

In my eyes, I'm not lazy
In my face, it's not over
In your room, I'm not 'll'over
In your eyes, I'm not worth it

Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my alcohol, gimmie back my alcohol
Gimmie back my, gimmie back my
Gimme back

Heal a million, kill a million
Peel a million, feel a million
Heal a million, kill a million

    General CommentThis song is about a relationship between a rich girl and a poor boy. The poor boy is doing all he can to make the rich girl love him, "In my face, it's not over" and yet the rich girl likes the poor boy but doesn't predict the relationship lasting because he is poor and has no momey. The boy feels annoyed that he is poor and wishes he could change the state he is in, out of his anger he says, "kill a million" which is refering to how he wishes the girl was not a rich girl who has millions, and just a poor girl like him so they could both be the same financially, and therefore could have a better relationship

    General Comment"Scoff" is a rare, un-ironic self confident response to those who scoffed, instead of encouraged, Kurt. Who does not see himself as lazy, and responds by demanding his alcohol, which they cannot withhold from him anymore.

    General CommentHeal a million, kill a million = nothing has changed

    A million healed but then a million killed so no progress is made.
