Don't Panic Lyrics

Bones, sinking like stones,

All that we fought for,

Homes, places we've grown,

All of us are done for.

And we live in a beautiful world,

Yeah we do, yeah we do,

We live in a beautiful world,

Bones, sinking like...

    The first verse repeated emphaises the downfall of humanity, the hopelessness and devastation we face as a nation belonging to a dying world. The chorus however reveals a contrasting notion of hope and appreciation of the earth in it's beauty. This beauty notably understood by all individuals. However the last verse which concludes the song reveals a personal understanding of the earth and humanities fate stating 'Oh all that I know' including himself personally in the message of the song, 'there's nothing here to run from' an ideal which corresponds with the title. 'yeah everybody here's got somebody to lean on' ends the song on a positive note revealing that there is nothing to fear because we have each other.

    Humans are all dying. We're like rocks thrown in the ocean, sure we haven't hit the bottom yet, but eventually it will occur. No matter what we do, who we fight or where we go we'll still end up dead.

    But the world is a beautiful place right? It's really beautiful. We should just enjoy each others company and help one another until our certain end.

    First of all, what im getting is that the repetition of the 1st verse represents the repetition of human life and existence...kind of like even though its a new generation, its still the same kinds of peoples. And i think with that first part of the verse, they are refering to death and that everything does go to pass and we kind of accept it like that with "all that we fall for", but the 2nd part i think refers to the fact that we all hav a place we call home and thats what we are working twardr to keep that memory in existence, so we grow up, work, have a fami and then...die... But then he ends it beautiful with the notion that we not the first generation to go through this and certainly not the last, but one thing remains and that is that we never ever alone. And that is the beautiy of this world we live in.

    Basically this song is saying: Don't panic, the world is ending. However, that's ok that the world is ending, as long as you cherished your moments on earth, and are close to the ones you love, there's no reason for you to panic.

    Our end is inevitable, everything around us is transient but while we are living, lets look at the beauty around us, appreciate the positive and realize that there is always someone for us in some small way.
