"Fuck Forever" as written by and Patrick George/doherty Walden....
How d'you choose between death and glory?
How d'you choose between death and glory?
Happy endings don't bore me
Happy endings, they never bored me
They, they have a way
They have a way to make you pay
And to make you toe the line
Sever the ties
Oh I'm so clever
But clever ain't wise
Fuck forever
If you don't mind
I'm stuck forever
Stuck in your mind

How'd you choose between death and glory?
But I musta choose between death and glory?
New Labor and Tory
Purgatory and happy families

Oh, we won't have a say
We won't have a say, no
We won't have a say
Won't have a say
Oh they'll have a way
They'll find a way to make you pay
And to make you toe the line
Sever the ties
Oh, you're so clever
But you're not very nice
So fuck forever
If you don't mind
Fuck forever
If you don't mind

They, they'll find a way
Find a way to make you pay
And to make you toe the line
Sever the ties
I'm stuck forever
And that is your mind
Fuck forever
I'm out of your mind
Fuck forever
I'm out of your mind

    General Commentit is about pete telling carl to forget about forever, choosing between drugs or a normal life,pete is stuck in carls mind,pete will have to pay due to contract he signed with alan mcgee which denies him royalties for his lyrics,glory only if he does as told,ie; be boring pop star,the newspaper joke.

    General CommentBoth political parties (new labour and tory) are mentioned in the song 'Fuck Forever' by Pete Doherty and the Babyshambles instantaneously making the song a political commentary upon society as we know it.
    His vehement tone and impassioned repetitions of phrase combined with the despairing lyricism, create a portrayal of a dystopian society that has condemned the 'happy families' to a purgatorial existence. Doherty laments a society devoid of 'happy endings' which cannot tell 'death from glory'.
    Doherty also protests against the censorship bans imposed upon countless artists: 'they make you toe the line'.
    The song is hugely ironic in the sense that the title is 'Fuck Forever'; the irony which Doherty buoys his resounding message upon: a complete and utter futility in attempting to express oneself. 'They'll never play this on the radio' screams Doherty over the dying music, thus exposing the hypocrisy of a society that brands itself a "Democracy".

    General CommentWas my best mate's favourite song, R.I.P.

    It just makes me think about enjoying the day because you never know if it's your last. Not the most positive outlook admittedly, but it makes sense to me

    General Commentto me it sounds like he is not a big fan of "only the sex is good so go on with that" -relationships. because they have no happy ending. he was never bored of happy endings. he would like to have one. at least.

    just my thougts. i guess its completely about something else. but who cares xD

    General CommentNo one else mentioned this, so I'm not sure it's significant: the "death and glory" line in the first verse. Mick Jones did produce this album, as well as both of The Libertines' albums, so this maybe an homage of some sort. Or it may be a nice coincidence.

    General CommentThis is a fantastic song, with a great opening...

    If this is released as planned it'll be a huge anthem for years to come.

    General Commenti love this song, especially the "im so clever" then the build up into "fuck forever." class lyrics again - pete is a genius. i also think that half the lyrics on this page are incorrect. no change there. :P
