"Search and Destroy" as written by and Jared Leto....
Grab your gun
Time to go to hell
I'm no hero
Guilty as charged
Search and destroy

Found my faith
Living in sin
I'm no Jesus
But neither are you, my friend

I'm a whore
Above the broken dreams
The simple answer is never what it seems

A million little pieces
We've broken into
A million little pieces
Are stolen from you

Search and destroy (x4)

Sold my soul
To heaven and to hell
Sick as my secrets
But never gonna tell

I do believe
The burden of my dreams
Because your faith is a blessing
I believe (x6)

Search and destroy (x5)

Let go
Let go
Let me go
Let me go

Let go
Let go
Let me go

(Search and destroy)

A million little pieces (x7)

Stolen from you

Woah, oh oh, woah
Woah, oh oh, woah
Woah, oh oh, woah
Woah, oh oh, woah

Search and destroy (x4)

A million little pieces
A million little pieces the start

    General Comment"Search and Destroy" is a military tactic of quickly searching out the enemy, destroying them and withdrawing quickly after this is accomplished. I think this is about searching and destroying one's inner daemons and short comings.

    General CommentWell since 30 had their own youtube channel now and they posted all the lyrics up I looked at this one and "stole it from you," is actually "I've stolen from you." Which makes a little more sense. He's saying he took something away from someone else, but I'm still a little iffy on it.

    General CommentI Know That This Sounds Kind Of Weird,
    But I Came To Me As I Read The Lyrics.

    Read The Lyrics, And Try To Imagine
    Them As A Conversation Between Two People.
    Made Me Think Of The Song In A Completely Different Way...

    Lyric CorrectionGrab your gun
    Time to go to hell
    I'm no hero
    Guilty as charged
    Search and destroy

    Found my faith
    Living in sin
    I'm no jesus
    But niether are you, my friend

    I'm a whore
    Above the broken dreams
    The simple answer
    Is never what it seems...

    That was the only part that I had a problem with. The rest is repetition.

    My Interpretation"A million little pieces we've broken into/ A million little pieces I've stolen from you"

    I think he's saying that we all are made-up of little pieces and those pieces are "stolen" by other people to make us into the people we are. We all contribute to they way other poeple act and what they believe.

    General CommentI always thought this song was about having the ability to have faith in something or someone despite one's impurities and sins.
    There's no black or white, we're broken into a million little pieces, not all bad but not all good either. Everyone's got there dark secrets they aren't willing to tell anyone, but we also have the things in our lives that we live for and shout out for the world to hear.
    No matter how far in to something we get, we can always turn around, because that faith is still there and its unshakeable.

    General Comment"A million little pieces we've broken into
    A million little pieces, I stole it from you"

    seems to me that hes talking about we are no longer united, us as people, we have broken into a million little pieces and are not all one anymore. now i have no idea what he means when he says he stole it from you or how what i said ties into the rest of the song, but i thought id share my answer to that small riddle

    My InterpretationFound my faith living in sin
    I'm no Jesus, neither are you, my friend
    I'm a whore, I'm perfect, broken dreams
    A simple answer is never what it seems

    I feel like he is talking about learning from his mistakes rather than worrying about being imperfect. No one can judge another.

    General Commentfor the record, it's "found my faith living in SIN" which i think means you don't have to be perfect to find your faith. if that makes sense. and it's "a million little pieces ARE STOLEN from you" which i think is talking about the pieces of ourselves that are stolen from us by media and various forms of brainwashing every day. it could also be referring to the pieces stolen from us through abuse or through being bullied, working an awful job, etc. either way, this song is trying to open your eyes and give you hope. i think it's beautiful and empowering.
