Musical Interlude - 30 Seconds to Mars

I'm still getting back into the swing of things, in life and with my blog. I have several blog posts "on deck" that just need to be cleaned up, finalized and posted. Hopefully, I'll have one posted tomorrow. Until then, why not enjoy this little musical interlude...

I love 30 Seconds to Mars and I practically wore out their last CD, A Beautiful Lie, which was released in 2005. So I was very excited to finally hear new music from them. This is the song "Kings & Queens" from their new album This Is War, which is being released on December 8th. Jared Leto might be an eccentric and bizarre actor, but boy can he sing!

You Tube won't let me embed the video, so just click on the picture below and it will launch the You Tube video in a new window. If you like this song, why not check out their video for A Beautiful Lie, The Kill (the video is an homage to The Shinning), or From Yesterday. All their videos are very cinematic.

KINGS & QUEENS
by 30 Seconds to Mars

Into the night
Desperate and broken
The sound of a fight
Father has spoken

We were the kings and queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

Into your eyes
Hopeless and taken
We stole our new lives
Through blood and pain
In defense of our dreams
In defense of our dreams

We were the Kings and Queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the Children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

The age of man is over
A darkness comes and all
These lessons that we learned here
Have only just begun

We were the Kings and Queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the Children of a Lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell

We are the Kings
We are the Queens
We are the Kings
We are the Queens

Great song and video. LA looks so beautiful at night, with no one on the streets except bicyclists. Too bad it isn't that tranquil all the time. :P
