Not sure how accurate any of this is, but I think it's pretty close to being the actual thing aside from just a few words being wrong.

This healthy, unhealthy voice
Sits Lennon for you
Your healthy, unhealthy voices
It's several for me

Now who wants to live the soul's desire
Way down we're born to realize
One sobering thought was forced upon
We shall know we'll know

These slivers that warn our feet
Reminders joining us
To the rest, to the rest
The rest is yet to come
To the rest, all the best
The best is yet to come

Now who wants to live the soul's desire
Way down we're born to realize
One sobering thought was forced upon
We shall know we'll know

A silent stare brings the creeping clone
Won't feel you walking in but feel you walking out
Your silent stare brings us closer still
And all her wants out
Keep biting in

Now who wants to live the soul's desire
Way down we're born to realize
One sobering thought was forced upon
We shall know we'll know

    General CommentPretty sure the guy who said Jared Leto has something to do with it is right. Unless there's a Lennon character in the Dune series... In 2007, Jared Leto played Mark David Chapman in "Chapter 27", the guy who shot John Lennon.

    General CommentAmazing song. I think it's about people that are afraid of the future and don't want to see what lies in store for them and it's saying "We're born to realize" and "We shall know", that you have to accept what comes.

    General CommentLeto is a character from the DUNE book series. If I'm reading the song right, it refers to Leto Atreides II, who becomes god-like and enters a 3000 year life in "God Emperor of Dune" where he is pregognicient to everything. He has a master plan to save humanity from itself, but he can't stand what he has to become to save them and he can stand being everywhere and nowhere. The song is about how this all makes him feel.

    Song FactAt least the mystery where the song comes from and whether it has to do with Jared Letho from 30SecondsToMars is solved by Pete himself by now:

    "... Among the more interesting tracks is the closing "Leto's Headache," which was written for 2009's Sci-Fi Crimes and inspired by time spent hanging out with Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman and Academy Award winner Jared Leto and his drummer brother Shannon.

    "We had a good friendship for awhile," Loeffler says. "The song just kind of touches on what I saw when I'm around him and how his fame grew so rapidly that...it's hard for him to go out and all that. He has a famous headache, so I wrote about that." ..."
