#SongLyricSunday | Up In The Air – Thirty Seconds to Mars

From what I’ve seen, Jared Leto is not taking the new Joker movie very well, and I can’t say I blame him. It sounds like someone in Hollywood led him to believe that he’d be getting his own Joker movie after playing the role in Suicide Squad – and then, it didn’t happen. Poor Mr. J. 😦 At least they can’t keep him from making amazing music!

This week’s theme is: Around | Down | Sideways | Up

Thirty Seconds to Mars is pretty well known for their unique–often cinematic–music videos, and this one is no exception. It’s actually award winning, according to Wikipedia and Jared Leto was reported as stating the video is a “celebration of art and movement.” All I know is that it’s not dull in any possible way. 😀 Plus, it’s got Dita Von Teese in it, and who doesn’t love her??? (I first saw her years ago on an episode of Oddities – it’s not odd for a burlesque dancer to have a feather fetish, is it?) The video also stars various artists from around the world, Olympic gymnasts, performers from Cirque du Soleil, and random wild animals – There is a section in the beginning of the credits dedicated to showing who is who with their names.

“Up in the Air” was the lead single off of the Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams album released in 2013, which offered 30S2M fans an evolved or newer sound than previous albums. While the video won accolades, the song never hit #1 on any of the charts, but did reach #3 on the Alternative Songs chart and #4 on the Rock Airplay chart (both Billboards).

Fun Fact: Jared Leto teamed up with NASA and the very first recorded copy of this song “premiered on the same day from the International Space Station, after being launched aboard a spacecraft loaded with scientific experiments and other equipment” – Wikipedia

Talk about being “up in the air” LOL. Enjoy!

I’ve been up in the air
Out of my head
Stuck in a moment of emotion I’ve destroyed
Is this the end I feel?

Up in the air
Fucked up our life
All of the laws I’ve broken, loves that I’ve sacrificed
Is this the end?

I wrap my hands around your neck so tight with love, love

A thousand times I’ve tempted fate
A thousand times I’ve played this game
A thousand times that I have said today, today, today

I’ve been up in the air
Lost in the night
I wouldn’t trade out for your lies you lost for my life
Is this the end?

You were the love of my life, the darkness, the light
This is a portrait of the tortured you and I
Is this the, is this the, is this the end?

I wrap my hands around your neck so tight with love, love, love

A thousand times I’ve tempted fate
A thousand times I’ve played this game
A thousand times that I have said today, today, today

A thousand times I’ve tempted fate
A thousand times I’ve played this game
A thousand times that I have said today, today, today

I’ve been up in the air
Is this the end I feel?
Up in the air
Chasing a dream so real
I’ve been up in the air (I wrap my hands around your neck)
Is this the end I feel?
Up in the air
Chasing a dream, Chasing a dream

Take no more
Take no more
Take no more
I’ll take no more

A thousand times I’ve tempted fate (I’ll take no more)
A thousand times I’ve played this game (I’ll take no more)
A thousand times that I have said today, today, today (I’ll take no more)

Today (I wrap my hands)
Today (hands around)
Today (your neck)
Today (with love, love)
Today (I’ll wrap my hands)
Today (around your neck)
Today (with love, love)
Today

I’ll wrap my hands around your neck

I’ll wrap my hands around your neck

I’ll wrap my hands around your neck so tight with love, love

    1. I came across his music about 6 years ago, then realized he’d started as an actor. He won several awards for his role in the Dallas Buyer’s Club with Matthew McConaughey, and has done several other movies. Sometimes he just plays bit parts, and you don’t even realize it’s him lol. He’s quite versatile. 😀

      Shows like the Oddities are my favorite, they’re so interesting.
