"The Race" as written by and Jared Leto....
You saved my life
With blood and through sacrifice.
The lessons that I've learned
I promise you I said:
Never again!
Never again!
No never!

Hey! It began with an ending.
Hey! We were fighting for the world.
Hey! My desire never ending.
Hey! The race. The race.

Love is a dangerous game to play.
Hearts are made for breaking and for pain.
I'm selfish and I'm cold.
I promise you I said:
Never again!
Never again!
No never!

Hey! It began with an ending.
Hey! We were fighting for the world.
Hey! My desire never ending.
Hey! The race. The race.

I'm not running, no not running.
I'm not running, no not running.
I'm not running, no not running.
I'm not running, no not running.
No.

You saved my life.
You saved my life.

Hey! Hey! Hey!
The race. The race.
Hey! Hey! Hey!
The race. The race.

I'm not running, no not running.
I'm not running, no not running.
I'm not running, no not running.
I'm not running, no not running.
No.

    My Interpretation"You saved my life
    With blood and through sacrifice
    The lessons that I've learned

    I promise you I said
    Never again
    Never again
    No never"

    Seems to me that he's referring to his past drug use, where Shannon might've been the one who pulled him out of it, and then promised to never go back to that life. The "race" might be to get away from the the part of him that still wants drugs.


    "Love is a dangerous game to play
    Hearts are made for breaking and for pain
    I'm selfish and I'm cold"

    I feel that this is also about drugs. He's selfish in the way that he doesn't care about how his drug use affects the people around him, and therefore break their hearts when he keeps taking drugs.
