"Plan A" as written by and Peter/barat Doherty....
There's one man left to thank
Built it with his hands
One man left to thank
He didn't need to carve it into something
Carve it into something new
Carve it into something

And there's plan A
Take a seat A
Watch them play
Keep a receipt
Sharpen up and carve them into something
Carve it into something
Carve 'em into something new

Tell me what it is that you see
With your stolen eyes
And your singing one two three
Open up my eyes

My twin he tends to be me
He walks abroad
He like the broads
While I soak and shake alone at home

I don't need no bit of faith
Need no human race
Though I read every review
No one's got a fucking clue

You may as well
Carve carve carve it into something new
Carve it into something
Carve it into something new

    General CommentAfter 'No ones go a fucking clue' it goes:

    You have sold you souls,
    and bought new shoes
    Oh, you never choose
    You're bound to lose

    Write some crappy songs
    And if you come fro nowhere
    You'll end up straight back there....

    General CommentWhile I soak and shake alone at home , still chewing on my bone, smashing big boalders into stones, which I'm sure is about gettingheroin withdrawals but still smoking crack . One of my favourite songs
