Young Volcanoes Lyrics

When Rome's in ruins, we are the lions
Free of the coliseums
In poison places, we are anti-venom
We're the beginning of the end

Tonight the foxes hunt the hounds
It's all over now before it has begun
We've already won

We are wild, we...

    Pete once said that the foxes were a reference to females and the hounds were males.

    Young volcanoes are like the younger people, they are unpredictable (Don't know when they are going to 'erupt')

    "When Rome's in ruins, we are the lions, free of the coliseums."
    In Rome, the people watch lions and man fight just for entertainment, so when Rome fell, the lions were free.

    And the title is "Young Volcanoes", and the Roman city Pompeii was ruined by a volcanic eruption.

    I think it's really just being able to finally have freedom and just be able to do what you want and explode with emotion. Although, knowing Fall Out But, I'm probably over analyzing and they just wrote this for kicks.

    I think it's about two lovers not caring a shit about what the world's got to say.
