HURRICANE


Did you hear what Jared Leto recently said about the next 30 Seconds To Mars music video?  He said it's gonna be "very, very, very, very sexual."  The video is going to be for the song "Hurricane" which is on their latest album "This Is War".

For those of you who are just now getting to know 30 Seconds To Mars, it may come as a surprise to you that Kanye West (yes, that Kanye who could not apologize enough for what he did to Taylor Swift) collaborated with the band on this song.  And mind you, it's not rap or r & b or soul...the song is a really creative and dramatic piece of musical art!  Just check out the lyrics and try to visualize the meaning of the song:

HURRICANE
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 lied wide awake to the sound of the poison rain


Where did you go? where did you go? where did you go?


Heart beat, a heart beat, I need a... heart beat, a heart beat...


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 hurricane is chasing us all underground.


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


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?
[heart beat, a heart beat]
Do you really want me?
[I need a.. heart beat, a heart beat]
Do you really want me dead?
[you know I gotta leave, I can't stay,
I know I gotta go, I can't stay]
Or alive to live a 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
The prayers that we 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...


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


You say you wrong, you wrong, I'm right, I'm right, you're wrong, we fight
Ok, I'm running from the light, running from the day to night
Oh, the quiet silence defines our misery
The riot inside keeps trying to visit me
No matter how we try, it's too much history
Too many bad notes playing in our symphony
So let it breathe, let it fly, let it go
Let it fall, let it crash, burn slow
And then you call upon God
Oh you call upon God


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 chasing us all underground


This hurricane...(x5)


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 a lie


Running away from the night, running away from the light
Running away to save your life
