"Hunter (Björk cover)" as written by and Jared Leto....
If travel is searching
And home has been found

I'm not stopping

I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter
I'll bring back the goods
But I don't know when

I thought I could organize freedom
How American of me
This is soon
You figured it out, didn't you?

You could smell it
So you left me on my own
To complete the mission
Now I'm leaving it all behind

I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter
I'm the hunter
I'm the hunter

You just didn't know me....

    General Comment"If travel is searching
    "And home has been found

    I'm not stopping"

    If the point of travelling is to find something, and what is found is home..it's not enough. He's going to keep going.

    "I'm going hunting
    I'm the hunter
    I'll bring back the goods
    But I don't know when"

    He's the one who will keep searching for 'it'. He'll find it.. but he can't reassure anyone when he will.

    "I thought I could organize freedom
    How American of me
    This is soon
    You figured it out, didn't you?"

    Reflecting on being left to do things on his own. "How american of me." I love that line, and his exexution of it.

    "You could smell it
    So you left me on my own
    To complete the mission
    Now I'm leaving it all behind."

    He's been abandoned, and will abandon them now.


    "I'm going hunting
    I'm the hunter
    I'm the hunter
    I'm the hunter

    You just didn't know me...."

    Declaring he is the hunter and will not give up, and that they don't know him to think he would.


    That's what I got out of it. Reminds me of Final Fantasy 7, if anyones played it. The Ancients, or Centra, were the first race on the planet, and were supposed to find the "Promised land" and some of them stopped and found homes elsewhere, but others kept going to find what had been promised to them.

    Or maybe I'm a gamergeek, but I love the song.

    General CommentThis cover adds absolutely nothing to the original, ALL of the instrumentation is exactly the same. The only thing that's different is Jared's voice instead of Bjork's, and he sounds a hell of a lot like Bono in this one.

    A good cover should add the band's own unique sound to a song. With a good cover, you should say "Wow, this is a cover?" once you start recognizing lyrics. With a bad cover, you can say "Oh, this is a Bjork song," as soon as you hear the first 5 seconds. Nice job, guys. I was actually hoping this cover would be could, but I guess, relatively speaking, nothing could make A Beautiful Lie half the album their debut was.

    Sorry for the rant, I just think this song blows.

    General CommentI can see that they've changed it a slight amount for their own personal purposes. Changed "Scandinavian" to "American".

    General CommentI was pleasantly surprised when I heard this cover. Of course, it's not as good as the original, but quite a good effort.

    General CommentThis is a kickass Bjork cover. I am completely blown away by the impressive job they did covering her, because sucessfully covering Bjork is NOT an easy task. Jared's voice is absolutely gorgeous here!!

    General CommentIn my opinion i think it's about a guy or a girl being in a disfunctional relationship..and losing themsevlevs like losing their identities...and so they are cheating out of desperation..and the other person finding out about it and dumpinghim or her...

    General CommentI didn't know it was possible to cover Bjork... but when I heard this song, before the vocals kicked it, I was like "Hey, this is Bjork... why is it labeled 30 seconds to Mars"
    Very good cover
