"Unstookietitled" as written by Peter Doherty, Michael Whitnall and Adam Ficek....
You smoke your cigarettes down to the bone
And since you vowed to back it and you're too proud to sack it
You have to carry on your own

You think you had it under control
Best foot forward and don't look back no more
It could break your heart and torment your soul

Well, they sold my name after they stole my shame
Sold my name, ah yeah
Tumbled my game, tumbled their game
Got a tablet sized brains, yeah

You smoke your cigarettes down to the bone
And it's best not to mention you're craving for attention
Your love for fame like blood from a stone

Too busy to notice that you've thrown
You turn to dust as there's no one left to trust
Last chance and your mind will go

Suppose my name, suppose it came
And they sold my shame, yeah
And suppose it came out and tumbled their game
Tablet sized brains, yeah

Or is it really such a sin though?
Toll for my sin
Is it such a sin though?

One hand is sailing
One hand is sailing
One hand is sailing
One hand is sailing
One hand is sailing
One hand is sailing

    General CommentThe lyrics are all wrong! It goes like so:

    'Smoke your cigarette down to the bone
    Since you vowed to back it and you're too proud to sack it
    You'll have to carry out on your own.
    Think you had it under control.
    Your best foot forward and don't look back no more
    Could break your heart and damage your soul.

    Well they sold my name after restoring my shame
    Sold my name aw yeah.
    Tumbled my blame, tumbled the game,
    Got tablet sized brains, yeahh

    Smoke your cigarette down to bone,
    It's best not to mention your crave for attention,
    Your love for fame like blood from the stone.

    Too busy to notice that you've thrown,
    You turn to dust, as there's no one left to trust
    Last chance and your mind will go,

    Suppose my name, suppose it came
    And they stole my shame, yeahh
    And suppose it came and tumbled their game,
    Tablet sized brains, yeahh

    Or is it really such a sin, though?
    Toll for my sin.
    Is it really such a sin though?

    One hand is sailing x6'

    Or my version does, anyway

    General CommentYeah secretlywishing's version is correct not the submitted nonsense.

    I think Stookie is Mik, the shambles guitarist, who wrote most of the lyrics for this song. The lyrics are therefore from his POV and he's described how he sees pete.
    Is what i think.

    General CommentThe 'submitted nonsense' is actually the original lyrics from the older acoustic version. I fyou notice this was submitted last april before the studio verson was recorded or even finished.

    get your facts right before you start blabbing.

    General CommentI stand by nonsense my easily riled friend.

    'Bow to vac it'? That's just misheard and totally implausable. So, yep, nonsense sums it up.

    Ah well such is life, was a passing comment anyway.

    General CommentYeah, secretlywishing's lyrics are the closest to the studio recorded version.
    Except the last line "One hand is sailing" is actually "It's one and the same", as in the line from Fuck Forever from the first album.

    I think deardean's interpretation is really interesting, it fits really well.
