"Mission" as written by and Jared Leto....
I opened up my head inside and find another person's mind
I'm gonna take this chance I've got
I'm underlying as we speak
Hiding my face among the weak
Some say the day is on the way

Into the wild
I'm with the mission
Over the hill
Come here with me

Into the wild
Hey, into the wild, yeah

High above the serpentine I cross below the well-worn lines
Entangled in a missing memory
I find oversight, afford this sort of wicked price
There's something some new world is here to see

Into the wild, into the wild
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey

Into the wild
I'm with the mission
Over the hill
Come here with me

Into the wild
I'm with the mission
Over the hill
Come here with me

    General CommentGreat song. Really enjoy 30 Seconds to Mars. Can't wait for the CD to come out.
    The lyrics where the question marks are go as follows:

    High above the serpentine
    I cross below the well worn lines

    General CommentI believe it is actually:

    High above the serpentine
    I cross below the well worn lines
    Entangled in a missing memory
    A violent oversight has formed
    This order will give rise
    To something sone new world is here to seize

    General Comment^ To FrooziE, it does say something--I can't really understand what they say. Something like "please don't tell me this is a dream" and "nothing is as it seems"...That all happens when they're like "Hey Hey!" around the bridge.

    I looked on all other lyrics sites and found nothing talking about it. I REALLY want to know what it says there. If I ever see a band member, I will ask them!
