Phantom Planet - Balisong Lyrics




Balisong, sweet balisong
I'm gonna keep her in my pocket
Till the right time comes along
I got my balisong in my pocket so long
And when I need her don't you know
She's gonna sing that sweet song

Listen mother, mother
Hey mother, stop your nagging
'Cause you know it doesn't matter to me, no
I don't believe it when you say a word about my baby
If it's true, then only she could tell me so

I said, "No!"
You know you lost her, now she's with somebody new
Playin' with someone in the shadows
Runnin' with the shadows

Butterfly, sharp butterfly
She might be pretty, but be warned
That when she cuts, she makes 'em cry
I got my butterfly, always hiding by my side
And if you need her, don't you know
She'll shine her way into your eyes

So, listen brother, brother
Hey brother, stop your bragging
'Cause you know it doesn't matter to me, no
I don't believe it when you say a word about my baby
If it's true, then only she could tell me so

I said, "No!"
You know you lost her, now she's with somebody new
Playin' with someone in the shadows
Runnin' with the shadows

No one in the windows
Only where nobody knows
Yeah, only in the shadows
I know because she told me so

So, listen mother, mother
Hey mother, stop your nagging
'Cause you know it doesn't matter to me, no, no, no
I don't believe it when you say a word about my baby
If it's true, then only she could tell me so

I said, "No!"
You know you lost her, now she's with somebody new
Playin' with someone in the shadows
Runnin' with the shadows

No one in the windows
Only where nobody knows
Yeah, only in the shadows
I know because she told me so
I know because she told me so
I know because she told me so
I know because she told me so

I know because she told me so (Told me so)
I know because she told me so (Told me so)
I know because she told me so (Told me so)
I know because she told me so (Told me so)
I know because she told me so (Told me so)
I know because she told me so (Told me so)
I know because she told me so (Told me so)
I know because she told me so (Told me so)
I know because she told me so

    The first time I saw Phantom Planet they were opening for Panic on the Pretty. Odd. tour and tbh they should have been headlining. I love these guys. Cool that Ryan Ross brought y'all here though... I really miss him in Panic.

  3. Daniel Ponce

    Alex Greenwald, fuck yeah!!!

  4. obnoxious blob

    for anyone who might wanna know. balisong is pocket knife that can be folded by counter-roating its two handles to hide its blade. usually used for defense, it's also called butterfly knife.

    As someone of Filipino descent and a stan of Pinoy rock, I thought it was a cover of the Rivermaya song.

    Balisong means butterfly knife. Its a weapon that originated in the Philippines.

  15. Nickolas Mendoza

    Going to flip to this

    Branden Mays

    Whatcha got for a flipper? I got an 87 and a 51

    Nickolas Mendoza

    Branden Mays that’s awesome
    Haven’t been able to get my hands on a bench made but enjoying flipping my Bali Trainer I got from a surplus store
    . Also got a “CS Go” style trainer from one of my buds for free. But my favorite right now is my Cold Steel Balisong... it’s plastic but I swear it’s worth every penny of my 12 bucks that I spent on it. I use it as a trainer by putting electronics tape on the safe handle. Only been about a month since I’ve got my first one. But learning knew tricks and playing around with each of my knives. Hopefully In the near future I can purchase a genuine balisong made of good materials. Thanks for the reply

    Branden Mays

    @Nickolas Mendoza yeah the fgx Bali. I have one a hell of a lot of fun. I started out with some cheapos too. There's some greats Bali groups on Facebook if you're new the the scene. And big flips on YouTube makes some awesome tutorials. Also. Superglue. If you get cut and need a quick fix that's my go to.

    Branden Mays

    The 51 is really fun I've had mine for a year now. The Bradley kimura flips really well if you take the scales off for the price too!
