"Doctors & Dealers" as written by Carl Barat, Gary Powell, David Jonathan Hammond and Anthony Rossomondo....
I don't believe in anything
They tell me's set in stone
They say that were together
But I'm sat here on my own
In the company of strangers
This trigger happy scene
Well if a heart do like a hind
Then there is nothing in-between
Oh no, no I don't mind
Oh no, no I don't mind
Cause I can call someone to bring the fight on
(the doctors and the dealers)
Get someone to shed some light on
(miracle cure, soul stealers)
Crack pot quacks with cracked up egos
(prescribing old placebos)
Collecting junk that we dont need, no
I see them now and then
Still spitting out those lies
Strange it doesn't bother me
I've got my own disguise
And there's really not that much of me
For Jesus left to save
If savings only bartering
My soul can be his pay
Oh no, no I dont mind
Oh no, no I dont mind
Cause I can call someone to bring the fight on
(the doctors and the dealers)
Yes someone to shed some light on
(miracle cure soul stealers)
Crack pot quacks with cracked up egos
(prescribing old placebos)
Collecting junk that we dont need, no
You got the ball
I was lucky to get the chain
But now I have to watch the crowds
Haphazardly chasing down the drain
So what does it do?
Nothing for me
What about you?
The doctors and the dealers
The doctors and the dealers
The doctors and the dealers
They come to you
They come to me
They come in droves
Oh one two three
They come to you
they come to me
They come in droves
Oh one two three
They come to you
they come to me
They come in droves
Oh one two three
They come to you
Oh they come to me
They come in droves
Oh one two three
They come to me

    General CommentIt's about hangers on and everyone having an opinion on you.

    General CommentI love the lyrics to this song especially
    "And there’s really not that much of me
    For Jesus left to save
    If savings only bartering
    My soul can be his pay."

    In my opinion it's about after somethings happened that really put you in shock and how your just trying to pick up the peices but its so hard because there are people constantly judging you. Just my opinion, probably way off!

    General CommentI see it as a look at how happy doctors are about prescribing drugs and the protaginist not wanting to buy into it. How you see so many kids doped up on anti-depressants that it's a badge of honour.
    I love the line about Jesus- totally relates to my relationship with my mother (a catholic)

    General CommentWell I think its about how drug dealers and doctors are the same. They prescribe drugs to people who need to feel something, just to make money. They could care less if it kills you, and that in a sense by giving them your money you're kind of giving your soul to them because your happiness relies on them. In the end its not worth it, you got to solve your own problems

    General Commentlet me add that some medicines you obviously do need from doctors...but alot of medication thats coming out now that claim to do this and that, are really nothing but placebos. The pharmaceuticals will change one little chemical so they can give it some ridiculous professional sounding name to get it approved. Just watch a bit of american TV, like 40% of commercials are about medication or drugs.

    General Commentoh, wah wah wah.. the only remarkable thing about this album is that it takes a long long time to get sick of Carla's unshrouded bitterness.
