Hurricane Lyrics - 30 Seconds to Mars

Review The Song (13)



No matter how many times that you told me you wanted to leave
No matter how many breaths that you took, you still couldn't breathe
No matter how many nights that you lie wide awake to the sound of the poison rain
Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?
As days go by, the night's on fire

Tell me would you kill to save a life?
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right?
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricane's chasing us all underground

No matter how many deaths that I die I will never forget
No matter how many lives that I live I will never regret
There is a fire inside of this heart in a riot about to explode into flames
Where is your God? Where is your God? Where is your God?
Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh

Do you really want?
sponsored links
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead?
Or alive to torture for my sins?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead?
Or alive to live the lie?

Tell me would you kill to save a life?
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right?
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricane's chasing us all underground

The promises we made were not enough
(Never play the game again)
The prayers that we have prayed were like a drug
(Never gonna help me here)
The secrets that we saw were never know
(Never sing a song a second time)
The love we had, the love we had
We had to let it go
(Never giving in again, never giving in again)

Tell me would you kill to save a life?
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right?
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricane's chasing us all underground

Oh oh whoa

This hurricane
Oh oh whoa
This hurricane
Oh oh whoa
This hurricane
Oh oh whoa

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead?
Or alive to torture for my sins?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead?
Or alive to live the lie?

I agree with Stephen | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/2/13

Stephen I am very impressed with your observation and analysis of this song and and although I see the artistic element, the lyrics could be interpreted as you have defined them. I' don't think what has happened in Palestine is the same scale as the holocaust but yes it is ethnic cleansing in its horrific form and one which has been watched / fueled by the west...which saddens me in this day and age... The line "no matter how many deaths that I die I will never forget resonates for me...the Palestinians who gave up theur land in 1947 on a promise that was never kept by the then occupiers have suffered a pain i can onky imagine. Death is the easy way out...the suffering, the tirture the torment...the angst Hurricane defines captures it...

Anyway I do also think 30stm weren't specifically focusing on Palestine/Israel...I think it's about war In general. It ciphers the quintessential Hate against humankind in its purest form and which has been prevalent in all parts if the world throughout history. Burmese persecution of Muslims by what I alws believed to be the most peaceful of religions (Buddhism), ethnic cleansing in Eastern Europe such as Bosnia, war in the Balkan states, the gate crimes in Zimbabwe, the Pakistani Bangladeshi war of 1971 where women were ravaged and land stolen...the list could go on...

So Stephen I agree with you, these profound lyrics carry such a powerful message which cannot be ignored

A Different Thought | Reviewer: Twitchy | 5/22/12

I always thought of this song as like an ex that didn't work out because she was psycho but he loves her. Idk, maybe the chorus is just a metaphor and not really about war, it's too literal.

awsome song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/22/11

well it seems like everyone has his own way of finding a meaning behind this song , and i think that's what is amazing about hurricane ,wich is a lot of possible ways to interpret it *o*

whatevs | Reviewer: ameems | 9/12/11

Whatever y'all, I rate that Hurricane, like all the songs on the album, is about the futility of war in general. Not about one side being right as opposed to the other - its about both sides being wrong and God forsaking humanity hence "where is your God?"

But hey, I'm not Jared Leto, so I wouldn't know

....definitely not pro-palestinian.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/2/11

Hilarious reading this pro-palestinian propaganda on here when Jared Leto is pro-israel and speaks hebrew.. If anything it "could" be interpreted as a complaint against terrorist aggression in the middle east... but its not even that, its about media censoring sex and allowing all sorts of violence... ignorant people... sheesh

@Religion | Reviewer: Jules | 6/5/11

@religion you are wrong. The symbol Jared wears it a religious symbol, it is the 30StM symbol. Never once does the song/ music video say he begins to believe.It is the symbol of the band - > /-\

Pyramid with a line in the middle. He has it tattooed on his ear.

5)closer to the edge
4)kings and queens
3)from yesterday
2)the kill
1)hurricane

Religion | Reviewer: Dani | 1/31/11

My opinion of this is the characters in which 30 Seconds to Mars play have doubted religion. I say this because of all the religious remarks made in the song...

In the video clip, Jared wears a necklace which is the symbol of god and after he survives a 50 floor fall, he begins to believe. By the end, god has given him the power to fight his enemy. Which is why he ha the mark of god tattooed on his chest and he is called the hurricane with an arrow pointing to heaven.

stephen i agree | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/15/11

@stephen
You have read my mind, that's exactly what i had thought the song was about before watching the music video. However, the video tells a completely different story. Also, if Jared Leto really wanted to send a clear message about what's happening in Gaza he would've made the music video about palatine and the suffering there. But he didn't

Great Song | Reviewer: Byron Injeeli | 1/14/11

I cant really decipher the meaning of the song, but i doubt its about Israel. The video of this song shows some pretty abstract things, but most of them seem to have a sexual meaning to them. I think its actually about a messed up relationship in which the girl is continuosly harming the guy emotionally. Hence the lyrics go, "Do you really want me? Do you really want me dead?"

---- But thats just what i think,

Palestine | Reviewer: Jo Davis | 12/22/10

I totally agree. Whenever I listen to this song all I can think of is the oppression which Israel subjects the Palestinians to. No doubt 30 seconds to Mars are very politically motivated and I wouldn't be surprised if they were pro-Palestinian.

The metaphors in "Hurricane" no doubt resonate deep with the Palestinian cause.

a very intelligent song | Reviewer: stephen | 11/8/10

Ok so here’s the deal

hurricane is, IN MY OPINION (this is just a reading, i am not saying this is what 30STM were thinking), about the holocaust in Palestine, 30 seconds to mars are very politically active as most of us know, but Palestine is a very sensitive issue, hear me out...


No matter how many times that you told me you wanted to leave
No matter how many breaths that you took you still couldn't breathe
No matter how many nights did you lie
Wide awake to the sounds of the pausing rain
Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?
As days go by the nights are on fire


...the entire Gaza strip works like a refugee camp, it’s claustrophobic and rather like hell, if you are a Palestinian you are stuck there, any attempts to escape merit a bullet hole or two, people have been trying to escape for years, most are killed. the nights on fire is of course referring to the shelling of Gaza


Tell me would you kill to save for a life?
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right?
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricanes chasing us all underground


... this part is war in a nutshell, all conflict in the modern world is derived from the need to protect or assert dominance over another social group, usually because of some misconception concerning xenophobia but whatever I digress... the Israelis who were promised land that was devoid of any natural inhabitance were of course lied to, there was a population there and the government massacred them, most of the Israeli population didn’t know this, most of the world didn’t until recently. the reference to underground is literally of some escape attempts by Palestinians to get out of the refugee camps


No matter how many deaths that I die, I will never forget
No matter how many lives that I live, I will never regret
There's a fire inside of this heart in a riot about to explode into flames
Where is your God? where is your God? where is your God?


...this is referring to the Palestinian in general, they, as a people have a close relationship with the land and would kill protect it, no matter what happens they are still patriotic and this is still their land, they are also a religious people, but that was crushed by the ethnic cleansing which destroyed their culture, it is also a biblical reference, the roman soldiers said to Jesus as he died "where is your god now, is he asleep" etc, and therefore represents the murder of Palestine


Do you really want..do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive to torture for myself?
Do you really want..do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead or alive to live a lie?


... this part is really interesting, it is in reference to the lies the people of the middle east were told, the Palestinians asked questions to their western conquers; what do you want with us? they were first killed during the ethnic cleansings of 1947, then pushed into refugee camps and told eventually they could go back to their land (50 years on still they are detained), then more recently they have been told that none of this happened (the Nakba denial) and to speak of it is a crime against the ruling Israeli government

...

The promises we made were not enough
The prayers that we had prayed were like a drug
The secrets that we sold were never known
The Love we had, The Love we had,
We had to let it go


... referring to the way Palestinian nationals tried to get the UN to help, to no avail, and to a series of other attempts to free themselves and claim "the right of return". and the "love" is referring to the land they had but had to leave or risk death of themselves and their families


the song lacks any of the optimism and hope of all the other songs, this is done purposefully to portray the absolute destitute of the Palestinian people, who have lost their land, their rights, dignity and their identity
if you would like any proof of this read Theodor Herzl's pamphlet on the Jewish State, it is very disturbing, and the actual text that caused the relocating of the Jewish people to Palestine (a move which many Jewish people opposed, including Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud)

DISCALIMER

I AM NOT A RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALIST, Christian, Muslim or atheist
I DO NOT BLAME THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR THE SECOND HOLOCAUST it was entirely the fault of European powers seeking control over the Arab people to secure oil and keep the Soviet Union out
I DO NOT SUPPORT THE WAR ON TERROR OR THE 'TERRORIST' MOVEMENT, peace brother
this is simply my interpretation of a brilliant song, I hope it helped

Memories | Reviewer: Mariah | 12/28/09

This song is not about this in the least, but this song makes me remember many things of my past. I found my moms boyfriend dead after he laid in the July heat for a week...It makes me sad, but I relate, I will never regret him.

Kanye says "Can I get a heartbeat" which is all I was thinking.

"Tell me would you kill to save a life?
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right?
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricane's chasing us all underground"

Yes, I would have killed to save his life.
I would have killed to save him, he didn't deserve to die alone, nobody does.
