"Skurk" as written by and Tim Skold Sascha Konietzko....
I don't need your contradictions
I'm not gonna play that role
I don't need you telling me I've got my back against the wall
If all I've got is everything and everything is all you want
If I give you just a little bit you're gonna try to take it all

I feed my anger with the fucking bullshit that you preach
I bleed forever and not a thing you do can comfort me

Obey authority
Live in conformity
I do for you what you do for me

I don't fear the confrontation
I'm not afraid to take the fall
I'm not gonna step aside I'm not letting you make the call
If everything is all I've got and everything is what you want
If I give you just alittle bit you're gonna try to take it all

    General CommentThe song's about religion and government. Both of them contradict themselves constantly, both of them preach authority and conformity, and both of them want it all.

    General CommentCould be coined as my favourite KMFDM song. Skold's vocals are brilliant on this song. The sample at 03:16 kicks ass, reminds me of Sonic the SEGA game.

    General CommentWell. The wonderful thing about music is that it has many interpretations--as many interpretations as it is interpreted. For this song, I see it meaning many things, however, at this time in my life, it is about a struggle between two people: a man and a woman.

    In this instance, a woman preaches to a man contradictions. Do this--don't do this--and she does or does not do them herself. He doesn't want to deal with it, and definitely doesn't want her telling him his position in things. Next lines are self-explanatory. He feeds his anger with what she preaches, and he bleeds forever, but because what could save him, is causing him to bleed, there's not a thing she can do. These next lines are kind of funny, because, when I first heard this song.. 5 years ago(?), I thought he was saying "I will confront you--will you confront me". I know that's not what it is, but it's ironic that it would fit here so pleasantly. He's saying, I'm telling you what to do, I do what you do for me. Meaning, that's not actually what he means, but, he's just doing what she does to him.

    "I do for you what you do for me."

    General CommentI buy the explanation about religion and government, but would like to take it 1 step further.

    This song is also about being defiant to those things and rebelling against them. Of being an individual who thinks outside of the box in a world of conformity and people not thinking for themselves, of the feeling your surrounded by idiots.
