"Revolve" as written by and Jared Leto....
A revolution has begun today for me inside
The ultimate defense is to pretend
Revolve around yourself just like an ordinary man
The only other option: to forget

Does it feel like we've never been alive?
Does it seem like it's only just begun?

Defy yourself
Just look inside the wreckage of your past
To lose it all all you have to do it lie
The policy is set and we are never turning back

It's time for execution
Time to execute
It's time for execution
Time to execute

Does it feel like we've never been alive?
Does it seem like it's only just begun?
Does it feel like we've never been alive inside?
Does it seem like it's only just begun?
It's only just begun

The evolution is coming
A revolution has begun (It has begun)
The evolution is coming
A revolution has you

The evolution is coming
A revolution has begun (Has begun)
The evolution is coming
A revolution has you

    General CommentBeautiful song.
    To me, it's about those precious moments where your worldview is shaken and the world seems to literally stop. You experience something physically, emotionally, or spiritually stunning or traumatic that causes you to rethink everything about the world and your place in it. And it makes you feel like you're finally alive - like life finally has meaning.
    But it's hard to do something about it, and I think this song does a great job relating the struggle that occurs within you at that moment. Because at that moment you have to decide if you're going to change your life for the better or if you're going to go back to living your life the same as its always been, taking everything for granted.
    Hopefully we choose the internal revolution. Hopefully we choose to evolve.

    General CommentMaybe the song is about trying to become someone else... Someone who feels alive and free
    "Does it feel like we've never been alive"

    And maybe that's also why he says
    "The evolution is coming A revolution has begun The evolution is coming A revolution has you"

    Just a guess... :D

    General Commentwow, why has no one else commented on this song? This is one of my favorites from 30 seconds to mars. I think I know what they are talking about, it is just hard to explain. I like songs about this that make you think.

    General CommentI think it's about growing up and shedding all of the stupid emotional attitudes of childhood and young adulthood.

    General CommentTechnically called R-Evolve. And ironically, my CD is smack-bang in the middle of it.

    General CommentWow, the guitar in this song, especially in the beginning, sounds exactly like the guitar in Blink 182's "Adam's Song".
