Cape Town is the capital city of South Africa where Panic performed at the Coke Zero Fest in 2009
Panic seemed to have a good time, they hung out together, went sightseeing etc
*narrator voice* but things were not as they seemed
13th April 2009 turned out to be the last concert Panic would play with Ryan and Jon
the relations between the band members worsened and Panic officially split on July 6th citing ‘musical differences’ as the reason
Ryan and Jon formed a new band called The Young Veins and Ryan wrote the song Cape Town which has the lyrics ‘I loved you, I left you in Cape Town’ and ‘I got lost in Cape Town’. People suspect these lyrics refer to him leaving the band, particularly Brendon.
however Ryan and Jon have said the lyrics are about a girl Ryan met during their tour. Apparently he asked her to marry him, but she already had a husband. Jon helped Ryan get out of the sticky situation.
Brendon And Spencer went on to release Vices and Virtues. The song Bittersweet has the lyrics ‘I’ve been to Tokyo and to South Africa…. but my favorite place is the warm embrace of holding your hair back in a bathroom stall’
Why would you hold someone’s hair back in a bathroom stall? a)If they were throwing up or b) If they were going down on you. Who could Brendon be talking about?
Also here’s something Cute!! Panic’s last pre split show? 13th April. Brendon’s birthday? 12th April. Sweet ending to this post, huh?
<b>What she says:</b> I'm fine.<p/><b>What she means:</b> I'm so confused why Brendon and Ryan couldn't just literally come out and say Ryden was real. I mean, now, Ryan really misses Brendon and acts like he's his ex that he still loves, and Brendon's dodging his name like old timers in fandom drama. I also don't understand how Brendon could pretend he wasn't writing a hundred songs about Ryan and not make it obvious. Come on, I mean, "How I missed yesterday, how I let it fade away", "Being blue is better than being over it", "There's no sunshine, there's no you and me". Brendon and Ryan were so perfect for each other. And how come he only recently came out as sexually fluid? What happened in capetown so many years ago? Why does Brendon pretend like nothing ever happened, when he has totally kissed him, worn his shirts, his ties, his guitar strap the post-split performance, held up a sign that says "Ryden Exists" in big capital letters. There are pictures proving it! Also why Ryan flew to New York to Seattle just to see him so they could celebrate Ryan's birthday, without telling his girlfriend or anyone else. Ryan said "He's my boy. Always will be." In a tweet and never let him completely go. Does Brendon still love Ryan? Will they ever confront each other again? What did Ryan do? Why did they try to cover up the fact that She Had The World, When The Day Met The Night, and Northern Downpour were about their love? Were they scared what their fans would do? Why is Brendon so avoiding of Ryan's name? What could he have possibly done for it to be so terrible even talk about him for that long? Why can't we know what happened in capetown? Ryan told Brendon so much and almost loved him, while Brendon was obviously head over heels for him? Why are we left in the dark, aimlessly wandering, searching for an answer in this dark continuum that we may never find? Did something that wasn't consented both ways happen romantically? I know Ryden was real. I just know it. There's too much proof to not realize it. If you showed someone who had no idea what Ryden was or who they were a picture of them, they would immediately assume they were dating. Also, their Twitters. Ryan and Brendon were very close on Twitter, and they couldn't have done a better job of acting as gay as possible. Brallon, also. Do people think that this is some kind of replacement? I feel like Brendon just wanted to be all cute with Dallon to try and replace what he had with Ryan. This may or may not be true, but it's what I think. I can tell Brendon still misses Ryan and loves him deep down in his heart, and Ryan has the exact same feelings. I feel that I will always wonder as I lay in my bed late at night... "What happened in capetown... And why?"<p/></p>
