Phantom Planet – Do The Panic lyrics

Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo be do
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo

Guess we're all in trouble, huh?
Black clouds are upon us
It's doomsday on the other side of town.
That boy survived a severed head
When most would just give up for dead,
So I said: "Al B. don't get so upset."
We all get scared of sticking out our necks
It's expected!

So panic.
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo be do
So panic.
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo

Come on come on
It's time to lose control!
Come on come on
Turn up your radio!
Come on come on
You're gonna feel alright!
Come on come on
Let's do the panic tonight!
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo be do
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo

This place is turning upside down,
And shaking all of our change out,
And Charlotte's tossing her hair to the hounds
But it's her head they want on the wall
Right next to the screeching owl,
And I don't like this party or the sound
Of people walking across you when you're down.
And that's it.

So panic.
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo be do
It's satanic.
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo

Come on. Come on
It's time to lose control!
Come on. Come on
Turn up your radio!
Come on Come on
Yeah you can bring your friends!
So we all do the panic again!

Put your left foot in!
Now put your other left foot in!

Are you having trouble getting it down?

Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo be do
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo

Come on. Come on
It's time to lose control!
Come on. Come on
Turn off your radio!
Come on Come on
You're gonna feel alright!
Come on, come on
Let's do the panic tonight!

Come on, come on
It's time to lose control!
Come on, come on
Turn up your radio
Come on, come on
Yeah, you can bring your friends!
Come on, come on
So we all do the panic again

Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo be do
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo

Well come on!

Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo be do
Ba ba ba, ba ba sha-doo

    I think the song is mostly about being afraid to give in to your fears. Which seems silly, because if you really want to conquer your fears, then the worst thing you could do is freak out about them internally because you're trying to stay calm on the surface. The speaker is saying when things go wrong, when you're losing your head or when a loved one is getting torn to shreds and stomped on by society, it's okay to lose control and panic a little. You'll feel better afterwards.

    Clearly, this is a song about paramedics arriving to a grisly scene during a storm. They are surprised to see that a decapitated young man is still alive, but they console him by telling him that it's expected to be scared since he is now in 2 parts.
    They encourage this mutilated boy to stand up and dance. What else would he do?
    They now are called to a party of homicidal maniacs who are after a girl named charlotte, who has long, beautiful hair. I'm thinkin' it's something reminiscent to texas chainsaw massacre + taxidermy because they want to stuff and mount charlotte's head to the wall next to an owl. The paramedics decide they don't like the music that's being played at the party so they leave charlotte as she is.
    As they're leaving, they help each other into the ambulance by encouraging them to put their feet inside the vehicle.
    Then they decide to dance some more (the headless boy is still in the backseat) and they dance as they drive away from the storm.
    This song is so inspiring.
