"Skin" as written by and Steven Severin Siouxsie Sioux....
Mink, seal and ermine
Smother fat women
I have a noble cause for skin
There's just too many of them
The only necessary cull
Curse the brain inside it's skull
Just a bitch in the manger to the balances of nature

Cover me with skin and accuse me of sin but you know what I mean
There's just too many of them

Give me your skin for dancing in

Hairless and streamline
Fits like my own skin
Tattooed and sun-dyed
It's warm and it's human
There was too many of them
The animals like them
Shame about the smell but they're fine steeped in perfume.

    Song MeaningSIOUXSIE: "We’re against their pathetic arguments about the culls, saying there are too many animals. The one thing there is too much of is people". Source: New Women In Rock 1982.

    One of the best Sioux quotes I've ever read and definately true.
