"Do or Die" as written by and Jared Leto....


In the middle of the night,

when the angels scream

I don’t want to live a lie that I believe.

It’s time to do or die.

I will never forget the moment, the moment

I will never forget the moment.

And the story goes…

Oh, that’s how the story goes.

You and I will never die.

It’s a dark embrace.

In the beginning was the light

of a dawning age.

Time to be alive.

I will never forget the moment the moment

I will never forget this night we sing we sing

Oh, that’s the story goes.

We’ll sing we’ll sing.

Fate is coming, that I know.

Time is running, got to go

Fate is coming that I know

Let it go, go.

Hear me now

Under the banner of heaven.

We dream out loud.

Do or die and the story goes…

and the story goes…

Oh, and the story goes…

This is the story.

Fate is coming, that I know.

Time is running, got to go

Fate is coming that I know

Let it go, go.

Hear me now

Under the banner of Heaven

We dream out loud

Dream out loud.

Fate is coming that i know, time is running out. (Time to do or die).

Fate is coming that I know, let it go. (Time to do or die).

    General Commentomg, these lyrics are royally messed up. for example, it's "i don't want to live a LIE that i believe." what this person has put in in stead doesn't even make sense. seriously guys, use some common sense when deciphering lyrics...i will try to get them to put my edits through soon. *fingers crossed*

    anyway, this is one of my favorite songs by them,. so inspirational and hopeful. to me, "i will never forget the moment" means to not forget to live in the moment. and the lyrics "fate is coming, that i know" are some of my favorite. i think this part could have to do with global apocalypse, or just a coming event in someone's life that they will have to be prepared for.

    anyway, i love this song and i hope they fix the lyrics soon.

    General Commenthere are the correct lyrics from leto himself:


    In the middle of the night,

    when the angels scream

    I don’t want to live a LIE that I believe.

    It’s time to do or die.

    I will never forget the moment, the moment

    I will never forget the moment.

    And the story goes…

    Oh, that’s how the story goes.

    You and I will never die.

    It’s a dark embrace.

    In the beginning was the LIGHT

    of a dawning age.

    Time to be alive.

    I will never forget the moment the moment

    I will never forget this night we sing we sing

    Oh, that’s the story goes.

    We’ll sing we’ll sing.

    Fate is coming, that I know.

    Time is running, got to go

    Fate is coming that I know

    Let it go, go.

    Hear me now

    Under the BANNER OF HEAVEN

    We dream out loud.

    Do or die and the story goes…

    and the story goes…

    Oh, and the story goes…

    This is the story.

    Fate is coming, that I know.

    Time is running, got to go

    Fate is coming that I know

    Let it go, go.

    Hear me now

    Under the banner of Heaven

    We dream out loud

    Dream out loud.

    Fate is coming that i know, time is running out. (Time to do or die).

    Fate is coming that I know, let it go. (Time to do or die).

    My Interpretation"I don't wanna live a life
    That I believe
    Time to do or die"

    He doesn't want to live a regular life which is easy to believe (no amazing things have happened). It's time to do whatever you can in order to make your dreams come true, no matter what happens or if you die doing it.


    Fate is coming
    That I know
    Time is running
    Got to go
    ...
    Here and now
    Under the battle of every dream aloud
    Dream aloud"

    You have to take every opportunity you're given because time won't stop and wait for you to get ready. Don't be afraid of showing what you dream of, just do it and don't care about what others think of it.
