Song Description

With aggressive, pulsating drums and intense guitar motifs, this is a driving rock song with funky, catchy vocal harmonics in the bridges and a sonically and dynamically varied layout. It starts out with a bang and builds from there, with a short, vulnerable breakdown dotted with Petra Haden's violin towards the end. The song explores the issues around the cycle of relapse for an alcoholic/addict, touching on the theme of feeling like one has a double soul: one wants to be free and loving and the other sporadically chooses darkness. Being clean allows the addict to feel and contribute love whereas during a relapse you're "living day to day in the black hole..."

Story Behind the Song

It started as a joke when Hurricane Sandy was approaching New York but turned into a passionate plea with the psyche to avoid relapsing into addiction and thus continuing the cycle of relapse.

Lyrics

There's a hurricane comin' at my rock and roll
there's a hurricane comin' at my rock and roll
when I've been thinkin' 'bout the voyage of a double soul
there's a hurricane comin' at my rock and roll

Please, I'm begging you, let me be
'cuz I've used up all of my fantasy
I'm asking you kindly, leave me alone
I wanna hold onto my love

'Cuz it's my love, my love's the right love
my love is one love, my love's a big love
it's a hurricane love

There's a hurricane comin' at my rock and roll
but I remember living day to day in the black hole
now there's a hurricane comin' at my rock and roll
but it doesn't matter if you're dealing with a troubled soul

'Cuz it's my love, my love's the right love
my love is one love, my love's a big love
it's a hurricane love

I've used up all of my philosophy
(stay away from my love)

Let me keep my love
Stay away from my love
Let me keep my love
Better stay away from my hurricane love

'Cuz it's my love, my love's the right love
my love is one love, my love's a big love
it's a hurricane love

There's a hurricane comin'
stay away from my love
