"Welcome to the Universe" as written by and Jared Leto....
And so the time has come, it's here
The silence ends, the change is near
You wait in the balance libertine
Come into the Pantheon

Welcome to the universe
Welcome to the universe

If there's a past into the clear
We better take the pace
Erase this face
In constant search for everything

You wait in the pallid slivered sky
Come into the pantheon

Welcome to the universe
Welcome to the universe
Welcome to the universe
Welcome to the universe

A new day has begun

    General Commentok rdy for something someone has to live to get....

    rather we are everything or nothing
    were something or nothing
    smart or dumb
    right or wrong

    we can never know, and this post is rather everything or nothing...we were brought up with knowledge or brought up with anything but. no one can ever tell us, nothing can show us. Belief is glorious or it is a crutch. When you fail you rather understand that you failed or failing is a mean/end to nothing.

    I am not justifying a given religion nor am i justifying a agnostic point of view, i just think this song is asking the question. Is one better thinking there point of view matters or is one better realizing it is nothing?

    end result to this song is exactly "?"

    General CommentPantheon: Temple dedicated to all gods of a certain religeon.

    Cool song, I wish it was longer. BTW, did anyone notice that the phrase "welcome to the universe" is at the very end of Year Zero... which is at the very end of the album...

    General CommentIt's about mankind making its first ventures in to space. Even though it seems like we've been at it for a while, space travel and astronomy with instruments that aren't Earth-based are still in their early stages.

    When we study deep space, we have no idea what could be out there, because we've only scratched the surface. Thus, the observers have to pick through every single thing, because something previously unknown could go undiscovered just because they didn't know to keep an eye out for it. Thus, people who study space are "in constant search for everything." (And that is my favorite line in the song!)

    The point is that we need to get used to the idea that we are no longer truly "Earthlings." Now that we've taken the plunge, the events that will let us go, or even live, anywhere, have been set in to motion. With these first steps in to space, we have claimed our place as citizens of the universe as a whole.

    This is probably my favorite 30 Seconds to Mars song. The sound and atmosphere are great, the imagery is stunning, and, being a space nerd ever since I learned to read at age three, the meaning I see in it really enthralls me.

    General CommentThe perception of what someone believes a song means is always interesting.

    Pantheon is also known as being the home of the gods of a particular faith.
