The Top Ten

A Beautiful Lie

5th place is unacceptable for A Beautiful Lie the chorus alone beats out every song in the world this deserves to be number one!

1. "Everyone's looking at me
I'm running around in circles, baby
A quiet desperation's building higher
I've got to remember this is just a game"
2. "It's a beautiful lie
It's the perfect denial
Such a beautiful lie to believe in" - FROMYESTERDAY

So beautiful, beautiful, IT MAKES ME! <3 All of their songs are inspirational, but this inspired me the most.


Best time to listen to this song is to sit on the roof at the end of a Friday and watch the sunset, while this song plays in the background.

1. "Does it feel like we've never been alive?
Does it seem like it's only just begun? "
2. "To find yourself just look inside the wreckage of your past
To lose it all you have to do is lie
The policy is set and we are never turning back" - FROMYESTERDAY

The Kill

1. "I tried to be someone else
But nothing seemed to change
I know now, this is who I really am inside. "
2. "Come break me down
Bury me, bury me
I am finished with you
Look in my eyes
You're killing me, killing me
All I wanted was you" - FROMYESTERDAY

From Yesterday

Best mars song by FARR! It's the song that made the band popular on T.V., with more than just the rockies! My dad liked it when they showed the video and I loved it and I was only 12 or 13 at the time. It's my favorite song by them because it has a meaning behind it, not just sounds and screaming, its been played 665 times on my computer let alone my ipod

1. "On a mountain he sits, not of gold but of s***
through the blood he can look, see the life that he took
From council of one he'll decide when he's done with the innocent"
2. "On his face is a map of the world
(A map of the world)
On his face is a map of the world
(A map of the world)" - FROMYESTERDAY

Edge of the Earth

1. "You wanna be the one in control
You wanna be the one who's alive
You wanna be the one who gets old
It's not a matter of luck, it's just a matter of time"
2. "Stand out on the edge of the earth
Dive into the center of fate
Walk right in the sight of a gun
Look into the new future's face" - FROMYESTERDAY

The Story

1. "And I swear to god I'll find myself in the end"
2. "This is the story of my life (These are the lies I have created)" - FROMYESTERDAY


"I won't suffer, be broken, get tired, or wasted
Surrender to nothing, or give up what I
Started and stopped it, from end to beginning
A new day is coming, and I am finally free" - FROMYESTERDAY


Tell me would you kill to save a life
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricane's chasing us all underground

I will forever be in love with this song. It got me through so much in this life...


This is War

This was the first 30 Seconds to Mars song I ever heard and its what got me hooked so it will forever be a favorite.

"To the right, to the left
We will fight to the death
To the Edge of the Earth
It's a brave new world
It's a brave new world" - FROMYESTERDAY

Kings and Queens

The Contenders

Buddha for Mary

"Tell me did you see her face
Tell me did you smell her taste
Tell me what's the difference
Don't they all just look the same inside?
Buddha for Mary, here it comes" - FROMYESTERDAY

The Fantasy

Do you live, do you die, do you bleed for the fantasy? Those lyrics have truly served as inspiration for my own life as they inspired me to make choices that would help make my dreams come true, rather than just doing what others expected me to do.

"Maybe tonight we can forget about it all
It could be just like heaven
I am a machine
No longer living, just a shell of what I dream" - FROMYESTERDAY

93 Million Miles
Was It a Dream?

It's the best lyrically and not only song mars have ever made

Do or Die
Night of the Hunter
Closer to the Edge

Terrific Lyrics

All the pretty people died
Innocence is out of style
All the whores have gone away
Now there's nothing left for me

Such a great song as well

End of the Beginning
Year Zero
A Modern Myth

To buy the truth,
And sell a lie.
The last mistake
Before you die.

Bright Lights
