"Another Girl Another Planet" as written by and Peter Albert Neil Perrett....
I always flirt with death
I could kill, but I don't care about it
I can face your threats
And stand up straight and tall and shout about it

I think I'm on another world with you, with you
I'm on another planet with you, with you

You get under my skin
I don't find it irritating
You always play to win
But I won't need rehabilitating, oh no

I think I'm on another world with you, with you
I'm on another planet with you, with you

Another girl, another planet
Another girl, another planet

Space travels in my blood
There ain't nothing I can do about it
Long journeys wear me out
But I know I can't live without it, oh no

I think I'm on another world with you, with you
I'm on another planet with you, with you

Another girl is loving you now
Another planet, is holding you down
Another planet

    General CommentGrammatically correct is "Space travel's" but apart from that the lyrics are accurate. Blink 182, The Replacements, REM, The Cure, The Libertines etc. all had their own variations of the text. Check out Wikipedia's entry for this song.

    General CommentI first heard this song about fifteen years ago, and I've only just realised it's a love song to heroin. Once you see it, it's so obvious: 'i look ill', 'you get under my skin', 'i won't need rehabilitating' [i.e. rehab], 'space travel's in my blood', 'I can't live without it'.

    I should have guessed as soon as Pete Doherty started hanging out with Peter Perrett and saying how amazing he was.

    General CommentTo me this song is saying that every girl is different and to move on to someone new is to like go to a different planet. Nothing is the same

    General Comment"I always flirt with death" - He nearly overdoses for fun.

    "I look ill, but I don't care about it" - Heroin is effecting his physical appearance in a negative way, but the mental effects surpass his desire to look healthy.

    "I can face your threats, and Stand up straight and tall and shout about it" - He isn't afraid of using heroin.

    "You get under my skin" - Heroin literally gets under his skin.

    "You always play to win, But I won't need rehabilitating" - Heroin always wins and he doesn't mind.

    "Space travels in my blood" - 'Heroin' is in my blood.

    "Long journey's wear me out, I know, I can't live without it, oh no" - His addiction is more important than his health.

    "I think I'm on another world with you" - Heroin mentally transports him to places beyond our world.

    "Another girl" - A common hallucination among male users are beautiful women.

    "another planet" - Another heroin trip.

    General Commenti used this song for a philosophy assignment and it could also be compared to the theory of forms, aka when hes with this girl/drug (lol) he feels so perfect, as if he is actually experiencing the perfect version of it, taken from the hypothetical imperfect world-- which can be an allusion for another planet.
