"Hook Me Up" as written by Shelly M Peiken, Lisa Marie Origliasso, Jessica Louise Origliasso and Greg Wells....
I'm tired of my life.
I feel so in between.
I'm sick of all my friends, girls can be so mean
I feel like throwin' out everything I wear
I'm startin' over new,
Cause I'm not even there.

Sometimes,
I wanna get away some place,
But I don't wanna stay too long.
Sometimes,
I want a brand new day,
Trying to fit in where I don't belong

Hook hook me up.
I wanna feel the rain in my hair.
Hook hook me up.
Where should we go I don't even care.

Anywhere is good enough.
Hook me up.
Hook me up.

I like the lights turned out,
The sound of closing doors.
I'm not like other girls,
Who always feel so sure.
Of everything they are,
Of what their gonna be.
Sometimes I'm just a girl stuck inside of me (of me)

Sometimes,
I wanna disappear some place,
But I don't wanna stay too long.
Sometimes,
I'm feeling so alone,
Trying to fit in where I don't belong.

Hook hook me up.
I wanna feel the rain in my hair.
Hook hook me up.
Where should we go I don't even care.

Anywhere is good enough.
Hook me up.
Hook me up.
Anywhere is good enough
Hook me up

Not gonna crash and burn,
I'm gonna find a way,
Nothing left to say

Hook hook me up.
I wanna feel the rain in my hair.
Hook hook me up.
Where should we go I don't even care.

Hook hook me up.
I wanna feel the rain in my hair.
Hook hook me up.
Where should we go I don't even care.

Anywhere is good enough
Hook me up
Hook me up
Hook me up

    My InterpretationI get the drug interpretation, but that's not how I interpret this song. She's sick of her life, she's bored, in a rut. She wants fun, something different and outside the normal for her, but she doesn't want to permanently turn into somebody/something else. She wants to embrace being out of her element for a little while because she's sick of feeling trapped. She doesn't care where she goes, what she does, or who she's with, she just wants excitement.

    General CommentI reckon this song takes a bit of getting used to, since its pretty different from the veronicas old cd, but once ya listen to it a few times its actually pretty good. And one of them has dyed their hair blonde.. pretty different :P
    As for the meaning... i think it's kinda about freedom and just getting out of somewhere.
    Pretty cool, can't wait for the whole new album

    General CommentJust think its about breaking away, from the monotony of life and starting fresh. Maybe through the help of a guy. But then again has second thoughts and wants to return to her former life. Probably about the wild side of her. GREAT SONG!!!

    General CommentI'm not a huge Veronicas fan but I admit this song is pretty damn catchy.

    Also, is it just me or do they seem a bit TOO close for twins?

    Good song either way.

    General Commentin the video clip u see that it is about schools restricting romance and not letting boys and girls socialise and be friends but the words dont have much to with it

    General CommentI think this song is about getting away from a place because it basically is very conformed and she feels like she is confined and cannot be herself. So basically she doesn't care where she goes, she just wants out of her current situation.

    General CommentDrugs can be pretty liberateing, either as a rebellious thing or just to help you get away from whatevers going on. So reckon it could be about both. Freedom and drugs that is. Still can't imagine the Veronicas being drug addicts, to early in there career :P

    General CommentThis song is NOT about drugs. Go here: musicremedy.com/t/The_Veronicas/album/…. They say in an interview that they use the phrase hook me up to mean "take me away from here, from reality and the stress of life.. an escape. just for a minute."
