"Hurricane" as written by and Danielle A Brisebois Gregory (gregg Alexander) Aiuto....
Are you worth your weight in gold,
'Cause you're behind my eyelids when I'm all alone
Hey Stranger, I want ya to catch me like a cold,
You and God both got the guns
When you shoot I think I'd duck

I lead the revolution in my bedroom
And I said all the zippers creak
We said no more war, no more clothes beneath these
Oh kiss me

Hey, Hey
We are a hurricane
Drop our anchors in a storm
Hey
They will never be the same
They're fighting with us to keep us warm
'Cause they know, I know, that they don't look like me
Oh, they know, I know, that they don't sound like me
You'll dance to anything
You'll dance to anything

Oh I confess, I confess to the rumor of us
But you didn't come and speak to me or put my heart at ease
And I believe that half the time, I am a wolf among the sheep
Now I got the wool over my eyes

I lead the revolution in my bedroom
And I set all the zippers free,
We said no more war
No more clothes beneath these
Oh kiss me

Hey, Hey
We are a hurricane
Drop our anchors in a storm
Hey
They will never be the same
They're fighting with us to keep us warm
'Cause they know, I know, that they don't look like me
Oh, they know, I know, that they don't sound like me
You'll dance to anything
You'll dance to anything
You'll dance to anything
You'll dance to anything

Fix me, oh conflict me
I'll take anything
Fix me, oh just conflict me 'cause I'll take anything

Hey, Hey
We are a hurricane
Drop our anchors in a storm
Hey
They will never be the same
They're fighting with us to keep us warm
'Cause they know, I know, that they don't look like me
Oh, they know, I know, that they don't sound like me
You'll dance to anything
You'll dance to anything

    My InterpretationJust my alternative interpretation of this, because I'm not saying that it doesn't have any deeper meaning behind it, but rather it is symbolic to whatever this Ryan stuff may be.

    But, I'm seeing some of the song obviously shedding some lyrics implying a prostitute, or prostitution and sex. Here's some lines:

    "Are you worth your weight in gold?"
    Their cost. Ya know..

    "Hey, stranger, I want you to catch me like a cold
    You and God both got the guns
    When you shoot I think I'd duck"
    STDs, coming from either person.

    "I led the revolution in my bedroom
    And I set all the zippers free
    We said no more wars, no more clothes, give me peace
    Oh, kiss me"
    Basically represents make love, not war. Lots of it.

    "We are a hurricane
    Drop our anchors in a storm"
    They left their mark on the girl, left a remnant; a memento.

    "You'll dance to anything"
    They'll sleep with anyone (for the right price).

    Purely what I got from listening to the song. And if this pretty close, it could also be symbolic and have some deeper meaning behind it.

    General CommentIt's about Rydons! Seriously. "Oh I confess, I confess to the rumor of us." And he says 'he' not she. XP

    By the way, I think some of the lyrics are wrong. I hear "You and God both got the guns, And when you shoot I think I'd duck."

    General CommentThis song is definitely aimed at Ryan and Jon leaving the group. With the "revolution in my bedroom" part, I thought of the Nine in the Afternoon video and the Pretty.Odd album in general with this song. If you look back on the first two albums pretty much all the lyrics were done by Ryan and Brendon sang *with a couple of exceptions of course* like Brendon always went with what Ryan said and such with the whole "I'm a wolf" lyric, always trying to be like him etc. It's a "good luck with your endeavors but you'll never be as good as what we built" song. Absolutely love this song among others. :]

    General CommentThis is definitely about Ryan. He was Brendon's best friend, so of course he loved him (not in a romantic way though), but just saying that he meant a lot to him and they both had to ruin their closeness, so now they are only 'friends'. It's pretty obvious. It's also about The Young Veins as well, what with "They will never be the same/They don't look like me/They don't sound like me".

    This is an awesome song. Definietly one of my favourites off of Vices & Virtues, which is saying something, as overall it is a brilliant album!

    Lyric Correction"I let the revolution in my bedroom
    And I sat on this in between"

    sounds to actually be..

    "I led the revolution in my bedroom
    And I said all this in between"

    General CommentFixes:

    "You [and God] both got the guns
    When you shoot, [I think I'd duck]

    [I led the revolution in my bedroom
    And I set all the zippers free]
    We said no more war, no more clothes, [give me peace]
    Oh kiss me
    Hey hey! We are a hurricane
    Drop out anchors in a storm
    Hey!
    They will never be the same
    [A fire in a flask to keep us warm]"

    And:

    "I am a wolf among the sheep
    [Gnawing at the wool] over my eyes"

    General CommentAw, I thought it was "I confess, I confess in a room or less."

    It makes no sense but for some reason I love it :v

    My OpinionThis is definitely about Ryan. I can't even tell how I came to that conclusion, but the first time I heard this I had this big gut feeling inside me that Hurricane is a personal song and that it's written about Ryan. Now that I think about it, this song was played in The Overture when Brendon was trying to save the chained girl. And people speculate that the girl represents Ryan, myself concluded. I don't know how I came to that conclusion, but I just KNOW it's Ryan.

    "'Cause you're behind my eyelids when I'm all alone" I thought that was a creative line. ^^

    "Oh I confess, I confess to the rumor of us." Haha, Rydon fans will seriously react to this line.

    "And I believe that half the time I am a wolf among the sheep, gnawing at the wool over my eyes." This line got me thinking. 'Cause I think the wool over his eyes implies that he is fooling himself that he belongs here, like he is one of the sheep but he's actually a wolf that will bring destruction to them all. And he doesn't realize that he's slowly "gnawing at the wool over his eyes."

    My InterpretationI kind of made my own interpretation to it. Which is off, but I'll share it anyway.

    Vices and Virtues. For me, the song relates to pride. Examples of lines:

    "Hey, stranger, I want you to catch me like a cold."
    "I led the revolution in my bedroom/ And I set all the zippers free"
    "Oh, kiss me"

    And of course:

    "'Cause they know, I know/ That they don't look like me
    Oh they know, I know/ That they don't sound like me"

    It's like he's screaming "Hey! I'm amazing, I'm badass, and I am worth everything you've got! Give me envy, give me malice, give me YOUR ATTENTION." (Sorry, I just HAD TO. ^^)

    However, despite his pride, there is still this one person that he sees besides himself (besides God). "Are you worth your weight in gold?/'Cause you're behind my eyelids when I'm all alone." and "You and God both got the guns/ When you shoot I think I'd duck." (it kind of means like, besides himself, the only other beings he'd follow or waste his time with is that one person and God).

    Again, holding the attention, he 'confesses' the rumor of him and his friend. "But he didn't come and speak to me." I suppose that means that everyone is giving him the attention for that rumor except for that friend of his (Ryan?).

    "Oh put my heart at ease." Since his friend isn't giving him the attention, he's bothered by it. Especially since he's part of the rumor too.

    "And I believe that half the time /I am a wolf among the sheep/ Gnawing at the wool over my eyes." He thinks he's badass, but he'll pose danger to his crowd/scene/sheep/whatever. See my comment above.

    "We are a hurricane/ Drop our anchors in a storm." He's famous, and by dropping anchors, he's putting his mark in history. He's wild and he goes against the flow.
