don't panic
Cold Play Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 here
Everybody here's got somebody to lean on

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Cold Play's song "Don't Panic" convey a sense of impending doom and despair. "Bones sinking like stones" invokes a feeling of sinking deeper and deeper into inescapable trouble. "All that we've fought for, homes, places we've grown, all of us are done for" seems to suggest that despite an individual's best efforts to create a better world, they are ultimately powerless and all of humanity is doomed to fail. However, the chorus brings in a more positive note with the declaration that "we live in a beautiful world." This contrast between despair and beauty may suggest that despite life's difficulties, there is still beauty to be found and that people should appreciate and cherish it while they can. The final verse reinforces this idea by suggesting that there is no need to run away from what is coming because everyone has someone else to lean on.


The song seems to suggest that despite the trials and tribulations that life can bring, there is still beauty to be found in the world. While people may be struggling to hold on to what they have fought for and may feel like they are sinking rapidly, it is important to remember the beauty that surrounds them. It is also important to remember that they are not alone in their struggles and that others are there to help them through tough times.

After 6 years I have just rediscovered this song for the first time.

I was about 7 and at that time I was getting into music, and me and my friends created a band. I wanted to make a song that we could play, an this melody just popped into my head. I knew it was already a song, but just didn’t know which, and up to now, I still remember walking up to my best friend and asking him by humming the melody to him. He immediately told me it was Dont panic.

I know it doesn’t seem like much but now when I just randomly clicked on this video all these memories just came flooding over me.

Now me and my friend live completely different live completely different lives, barely in touch and on completely different continents. So much time has passed, and it just gives me this feeling, not really sadness but like acceptance that time has passed and I’ll never get it back, but am forever grateful for it.

Nostalgia is a weird thing. I’m only 14 but I already feel so old. Please live life to the fullest to those of you who see this. Life is short, so enjoy it to the max.

Love from New York 🤍

Definitely their best. I liked the next one a lot too when it came out, but as the years have marched on, this one stands out a little more.
