"End of the Beginning" as written by and Jared Leto....
Here we are searching for a sign (sign)
Here we are searching for a sign (sign)

It's the end, here today
But I will build a new beginning
Take some time, find a place
And I will start my own religion

As the day divides the night
Here we are searching for a sign

Watch the men multiply
See them ease out of the circle
Watch your friends run and hide
Help them fall back in this cycle

Searching

You saw what you get if you take what you take
Look in the eye of the test, it's all because
Now there's a feeling I get when I look to the left
I should never resist the searching for a sign

Can you feel it?
Things are changing
Can you see it?
Watch as the world's colliding
Can you see it?
Can you feel it?
Watch as the worlds collide into themselves
Collide into themselves

Another time, another place
Another time, another place
Some paradimensional race
Some paradigm has shunned the race

Searching

You saw what you get if you take what you take
Look in the eye of the test, it's all because
Now there's a feeling I get when I look to the left
I should never resist the searching for a sign

You saw what you get if you take what you take
Look in the eye of the test, it's all because
Now there's a feeling I get when I look to the left
I should never resist the searching for a sign

    General CommentTheir debut album is a concept album centrered around the idea that space travel/ escaping earth represents separating from what humanity has become (which Leto doesn't consider very human); which is dominated by war and religeon, and ultimately, religeous wars ("This is what's right and we go to fight for freedom and justice and innocence so get out their and do your part while I sit back in washington- oh wait, you're already dead. Somebody bring me another 100k soldiers...)

    General Comment...it might have something to do with how in life, you get and take that, and try to use to the best of its capabilities, but it never always is known of its intended purpose, and maybe we should just try to find that out somehow...

    General CommentThere was a band that was very similar to 3tm a coupla years ago. THey were called Templar, and i believe that at that time the world just wasn't ready for a band like Templar but now I think the world wants omething different and finally bands like 3tm will be able to shine

    General CommentNot just starting a new religion but a new way of life "build a new begining" "watch the men multiply" And then those people being shunned, thus the end of the begining....*shrug* thats why I love 30 Seconds their songs can be taken many different ways.

    General Commenti think it is maybe the way that religions seem to rule everything we do, "watch the men multiply" is how people are converted, maybe some weird post apocolyptic religious war thing, but i think all songs are weird

    General CommentI've never thought of it as a religious song, although it fits with the rest of the album. I've always thought of it as a person who's trying to uncover some deep, dark secret. But by doing so has caused them to learn something they shouldn't have and caused their world to come crashing down on them and everyone they know.

    General CommentThe entire first CD is a concept album I dont really know what it's all about, but basically it's got something to do with someone who believes he is a god and a war I have been told before. Ooh, it rhymes lol

    General Comment"You know the day destroys the night
    Night divides the day
    Tried to run, Tried to hide
    Break on through to the other Side"

    Inspiration by the Doors?
