Kings and Queens

by: Thirty 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 lies
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 at dawn
These lessons that we’ve 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

Small warning: An unexpected moment in this video might make you jump, watch with caution if you startle easily or have a heart condition.

I do not own any rights to this song, video or lyrics. All rights remain with the artists and their respective agents. No copyright infringement intended.

Before he was the Joker… a full length novel could be written about Jared Leto’s immense range of Platinum Album, Save the Planet, Oscar Winning talents and it was really hard to choose which video I wanted to share today, but I think this one showcases his powerful vocals really well.

My favorite song of theirs is actually Hurricane. Did you know the Joker once played a Dominant? – Sign me up, please! 😛

Thirty Seconds to Mars made their music video/film for “Hurricane” back in November of 2010 before the current BDSM craze, but was unfortunately banned for awhile, before the full-length Uncensored Directors Cut found its way onto YouTube at long last. It is not strictly a BDSM video, but that plays a large part. I recommend watching the Making Of Hurricane first, you’ll have a much deeper appreciation for the song, artists and video. They are very graphic, NSFW videos. Please watch responsibly…

    • That’s why I put the warning up. Even though I’ve seen the video a hundred times, I hadn’t seen it in so long I forgot about that one part and it got me – made me jump! LOL It’s not bad, just unexpected.
