Gas Panic!

Album: Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants (2000)
  • What tongueless ghost of sin crept through my curtains?
    Sailing on a sea of sweat on a stormy night
    I think he don't got a name but I can't be certain
    And in me he starts to confide

    That my family don't seem so familiar
    And my enemies all know my name
    And if you hear me tap on your window
    Better get on yer knees and pray panic is on the way

    My pulse pumps out a beat to the ghost dancer
    My eyes are dead and my throat's like a black hole
    And if there's a god would he give another chancer
    An hour to sing for his soul

    'cause my family don't seem so familiar
    And my enemies all know my name
    And when you hear me tap on yer window
    Yer better get on yer knees and pray panic is on the way

    'cause my family don't seem so familiar
    And my enemies all know my name
    And when you hear me tap on yer window
    Then you get on your knees and you better pray
    'cause my family don't seem so familiar
    And my enemies all know my name
    And when you hear me tap on your window
    Yer better get on yer knees and pray
    Panic is on the way
    Panic is on the way Writer/s: NOEL GALLAGHER

  • J from Port Huron, MiNoel knows whereof he speaks.
  • Neil from Birmingham, United Stateshe dedicates it to potheads because the song is about kicking the drugs habit. he was probably lying in a crumpled shaking heap when he wrote this
  • Billy from Jo-burg, South AfricaI came across this song when i had my playlist set to random... i tried killing it by giving it a listen every day... still doesnt die. this is probably one of the best rock songs ever written, composed, recorded and performed... both the liam and noel versions. i can understand why he dedicated this to potheads everytime. it is such a song, really... gets you to zone out into nothing but planet oasis
  • Matt from Cleveland, OhChill song when ur higgggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  • Schmitty from Vienna, Vanoel wrote this after he started getting panic attacks from his drug habits.

    its pretty blatantly obvious that this is about a drug habit, especially when liam dedicates it to druggies every time

    the Noel-sung version of this is great too!! seems more stripped down, not overly distorted guitars...although i do LOVE this song and how its just down right rock and roll
