all Phantom Planet lyrics



I Was Better Off
From my mouth
now more and more everyday
words that have nothing to say
Well, I'll find something someday

I thought that I was better off
I was wrong
I am where I don't belong
In a flash, I am gone
to return when the sun shines again

Oh my God
Words that seem so out of place
I wish you'd get out of my face
Well, I'll find something someday

I thought that I was better off
I was wrong
I am where I don't belong
In a flash, I am gone
to return when the sun shines again

I thought that I was better off
I was wrong
I am where I don't belong
In a flash, I am gone
to return when the sun shines again

to return when the sun shines againback to top
So I Fall Again
I can't say if this feeling coming over me is real
but I know its something you can't steal
So I'll buy another problem to approach
sell a virgin lie that can't be touched

So I fall again
So I fall again
So I break through this rotten piece of wood again

I can't say if this here f*cking subject should be dropped
but I know its something you can't stop
So I'll buy another pickup line and sigh
and pretend that everything is alright

So I fall again
So I fall again
So I break through this rotten piece of wood again

So I break through this rotten piece of wood
So I break through this rotten piece of wood
So I break through this rotten piece of wood again

So I fall again
So I fall again
So I break through this rotten piece of wood againback to top
Recently Distressed
Dear recently distressed,
I am sorry, to inform you,
that I lost your kid's address,
you see my wings are on the fritz,
I can't even get up off the ground,
im really sorry for this mess,
cuz it all came crashing down

[chorus:]
Can I remember,
someone please tell me how to do my job,
or im out of work
speaking frankly, you'll be out of
dear recently distressed.

Can I remember,
someone please tell me how to do my job,
or im out of work
Speaking frankly, you'll be out of luck.. yeah..

[Chorus]back to top
Can't Take It
Somehow I get the feeling I'm
Where everyone knows you name
It's not much different but
It's surely not the same
you'll find peace in knowing now
I'm so sick and tired of hearing myself
Believe me, I never guessed you
Had one up you sleeve-Well there I go
So smile, you've done your part
But I'm waiting for someone to say
"I can't take it anymore" yeah
"Can't take it anymore" yeah
What's so wrong with being sad?
Left alone I was stuck to go over
All the things that I've done wrong
Sure I was stuck in a hole
But now we've got a song
After all the love is gone
Where did you get off saying
It's not so lame
We've had it different
And I know we're not the same
Well there I goback to top
The Local Black and Red
Sitting in your room
drinking your perfume
wondering which day of the week
I'll die on now
I'm lying in your bed
unscrewing your head
trying to figure out what's wrong
inside, so you don't yourself tonight, Yeah

So now you fall asleep
inside a tambourine
next to broken headphones and your
high school yearbook
I wrote on the final page
wish I could've stayed around
to watch the last band play
Hey, hey, hey, I heard
they just broke up yesterday

Frequenting the Local Black and Red
and how that band played
you really had to stare
You'd hardly be aware that you were blinking
You'd hardly be aware that you were blinking, Yeah

Frequenting the Local Black and Red
and how that band played
you really had to stare
You'd hardly be aware that you were blinking
You'd hardly be aware that you were blinking, Yeah, Yeahback to top
Don't Get Down
I want to live on the moon
and never see a human again
And as the Earth explodes
I'll light a candle for my best friends

I don't enjoy this place
My best friends are so mean
I look up to the sky when I am sad
because the planets don't get down on me
I just want to fall asleep

I want to live on the moon
and never see a human again
And as the Earth explodes
I'll light that candle for my best friends

I look up to the sky when I am sad,
because the planets don't get down on me

I just want to fall asleep and dream
of a place that's warm
I just want to fall asleep and dream
of a place that's warm, Oh yeah

I look up to the sky when I am sad,
because the planets don't get down on meback to top
Dying of Silence
So as I stand here dying of silence tonight
the quiet spell you slung at the ceiling fan
will return again

Why?
I ask myself sometimes
Dine on small talk after school
Why?
I ask myself sometimes

So as the mood gets darker and darker tonight
I can't help but feel a little uncomfortable, alright?
It will return again

Why?
I ask myself sometimes
Dine on small talk after school
Why Why? Why Why?

Why? Why?
I ask myself sometimes.
Why? Why?

Why? Why?
I ask myself sometimes.
Why? Why?
Why? Why?back to top
Down in a Second
Can I find a place of solace to unscale?
Should I take a social climb? Should I fail?
Have we gathered here to buzz or just to roach?
Have I bought another problem to approach?

If you want to leave me
If you want to just throw me away
I'll be down in a second
I'll be down in a second

How come now it seems that you no longer care?
How can I live a life that seems no longer fair?
Have we noticed yet that this is not a game?
Have I bought a fast way to a claim to fame?

If you want to leave me
If you want to just throw me away
I'll be down in a second
I'll be down in a second

If you want to leave me
If you want to just throw me away
I'll be down in a second
I'll be down in a second

If you want to leave me
If you want to just throw me away
I'll be down in a second
I'll be down in a secondback to top
Lisa (Does It Hurt You?)
Behind the bleachers,
I'll tell you a secret,
of locker room dreams
Lunchbox angel
Will you tell me your story,
Will you go with me

[chorus:]
Does it hurt you?
Does it pain you?
To say the words
That mean so much to me,
Does it hurt you?
Does it pain you?
Or did you lock it up
to hide away?

We are the laziest
People there could be,
For we only wrote one verse
But I asked Jacques
What I should put in place of this,
He said just leave it
(oh, and one more thing)

[chorus]back to top
Rest Easy
It's all clear, no need for you to fear
nothing's under the bed tonight
It's all right, no need for you to fright
nothing's after you tonight

If I pretend that I'm asleep, if I pretend that I'm asleep
will that prevent from making me their next meal?

It's all right, no need for you to fright
you've only lost your sense of sight
Rest your head and dream yourself to bed
or else I won't sleep well tonight

If I pretend that I'm asleep, if I pretend that I'm asleep
will that prevent from making me their next meal?

If I hold out until the light of day, if I hold out
will they disintegrate away? Far awayback to top
Sleep Machine
Some things meltaway
as night dissolves to day
Some things only stay
Silent darkness slowly kills me

I turn to you
and stir your blank expression.
You're the one for me
Help me get to sleep, Nighty night, goodnight
Something isn't right
Seems that every night, I need you

More and more
you take me away
More and more
I need you to stay
More and more
distract me from the instant loss of light
More and more
I need you tonight

Come, let's go for a while
and pretend you're mine for a while
Come, let's go, Yeah, yeah

More and more
You take me away
More and more
I need you to stay
More and more
distract me from the instant loss of light
More and more
I need you

Goodnight....back to top
