Butterflies and Hurricanes Lyrics

Change everything you are
And everything you were
Your number has been called

Fights and battles have begun
Revenge will surely come
Your hard times are ahead

Best, you've got to be the best
You've got to change the world
And use this...

    I always picture little stories with Muse songs. Butterflies and Hurricanes brings a feeling of a father talking to his son to me, of a very intimidating and pressuring father. He's ordering his son to buck up and be great. The father uses his son to achieve things that he's not capable of doing anymore because of his age.

    I think that it has to do with rising up and changing the world, to prevent it from crumbing into chaos.

    The song title is a reference to the Butterfly Effect. A common summary of the effect is a butterfly flapping its wings in one location can cause a hurricane half a world away. I believe the song is a call to all of us butterflies to flap our wings and cause great change because now is the time for us to step up.

    I wouldn't exactly say it's just about changing yourself, but this song is about giving everything ("Best, you've got to be the best") for others, for we sake of a better world or the sake of helping others. Even if it means you have to get over yourself: "Change everything you are..".
    There are certain points in life where you have to stand up for others: "Your number has been called.".

    To me, it's definitely about doing your best to make the world a better place. "Change everything you are/everything you were" is about changing yourself for the better and making the world a better place. Beautiful.

    I think that the song speaks about changing ourselves to be better than we are and show the others that we're not what they believe us to be.
