30 Seconds To Mars – Kings And Queens lyrics

Into the night
Desperate and broken
The sound of a fight
Father has spoken

We were the kings and queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

Into your eyes
Hopeless and taken
We stole our new lives
Through blood and pain
In defense of our dreams
In defense of our dreams

We were the Kings and Queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the Children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

The age of man is over
A darkness comes and all
These lessons that we learned here
Have only just begun

We were the Kings and Queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the Children of a Lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell

We are the Kings
We are the Queens
We are the Kings
We are the Queens

    Think of the kings and queens as adam and eve, or maybe just humanity itself. If your looking to relate to the song. Its about falling from grace, or losing yourself, and having A long way to go to get back to your former glory. It is about the realization that you have a long way to go, but are willing to fight to be a "king and queen," again.

    Obviously this song is about humanity having lost its connection to God and trying to regain it. The "children of a lesser god" line is not deminishing God but refering to our inabilty to hear Him (Children of a Lesser God is a play/movie about deafness). The song starts of with God (father) speaking, calling us to fight evil and to live up to our "promise." The song ends when those who have listened regain their positions as "kings and queens."

    Its amazing how music can bring fire to the mind and soul. What an amazing interpretation of ones view of mankind through music and lyrical representation. Mankind has only driven itself to where we are today and unfortunately only an act of god(s) intervention will right the wrong of the greed and selfishness that become the fall of mankind. Maybe oneday the true kings and queens will rise again to lead all of humanity to a peaceful place in time.
