"Attack" as written by and Jared Leto....
I won't suffer, be broken
Get tired or wasted
Surrender to nothing
Or give up what I started
And stop this
From end to beginning
A new day is coming
And I am finally free

Run away, run away
I'll attack
Run away, run away
Go change yourself
Run away, run away
I'll attack, I'll attack, I'll attack

I would've kept you forever
But we had to sever
It ended for both of us
Faster than a,
Kill off this thinking
It's starting to sink in
I'm losing control now
Without you I can finally see.

Run away, run away
I'll attack
Run away, run away
Go change yourself
Run away, run away
I'll attack, I'll attack, I'll attack

Your promises
They look like lies
Your honesty
Like a back that hides a knife
I promise you
I promise you
I am finally free

Run away, run away
I'll attack
Run away, run away
Go change yourself
Run away, run away
I'll attack, I'll attack, I'll attack

    General CommentTo me the song just is about someone leaving/being left by their significant other and being extremely relieved about it. Very good tune.

    General CommentAgreed. 30 Seconds To Mars-- mainly Jared Leto-- has kept us waiting for this album for too long. I expect that this album is going to be more than worth the wait. Provehito in Altum.

    General Commenti'm so excited for this album to come out, this preview of the album is quite exceptional. If this even represents the album a little bit it should be increadible

    General CommentI've heard the album, and this song is not representative of A Beautiful Lie at all. But it will blow you away, let me tell you.

    General CommentI can't wait for their new album to come out. After seeing them in concert back in 2003, I've been hooked. This song is REALLY addicting..
