Don't Panic lyrics

Facebook The opening song from Coldplay's debut studio album, 'Don't Panic' first appeared on their EP 'The Blue Room' in 1999. The lyrics depict a young Coldplay reflecting on the negativity in world: war, refugees, and our inevitable mortality. The song turns to put this in juxtaposition with positivity: love and the beauty of the natural world.

The song's original title was 'Panic', which fits in with the song's melancholy verse and that "all of us are done for". However, in tune with the positive note that the song ends on, it was later changed to 'Don't Panic' - a subtle hat-tip to the famous phrase from 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'. Coldplay likely got the idea to tie in with the cult sci-fi series from Radiohead who named one of their songs 'Paranoid Android', a reference to one of the characters. Coldplay have openly declared that they've been influenced and inspired by Radiohead.

Bones sinking like stones
All that we've fought for

Homes, places we've grown
All of us are done for


We live in a beautiful world
Yeah we do, yeah we do
We live in a beautiful world


Bones sinking like stones
All that we've fought for
Homes, places we've grown
All of us are done for

We live in a beautiful world
Yeah we do, yeah we do
We live in a beautiful world

We live in a beautiful world
Yeah we do, yeah we do
We live in a beautiful world

Oh all that I know
There's nothing here to run from
'Cause yeah
Everybody here's got somebody to lean on
