The Kill is the single by 30 Seconds To Mars from their second album A Beautiful Lie. Jared Leto, writer of the song, stated the song is about facing all of your fears, and more importantly, yourself.
The music video for The Kill is based heavily off of the 1980 horror movie "The Shining" Similarites include
- caretaking for a hotel
- a room which is not supposed to be entered
- a blonde woman in the bathroom
- a ghost bartender
- someone receiving oral sex from a man in a bear coustume
The band has rented out an empty hotel for three days (although they stay for over a week due to Jared's health). The band enters the lobby, and there is a note saying "Enjoy your stay and please stay out of Room 6277." The band ignores the waring, and eventually each member enters the room, and encounters some supernatural events. Jared encounters a doppelganger of himself in a tuxedo, Shannon finds a womam in the shower of room 6277, Matt being served drinks by a ghost, and Tomo receiving oral sex from a man in a bear coustume. At the end, the band finishes the song in front of a 1920 themed auidance, each with their own doppelganger.
What if I wanted to break Laugh it all off in your face What would you do? What if I fell to the floor Couldn't take all this anymore What would you do, do, do?
Come, break me down Bury me, bury me I am finished with you
What if I wanted to fight Beg for the rest of my life What would you do? You say you wanted more What are you waiting for? I'm not running from you
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
I tried to be someone else But nothing seemed to change I know now, this is who I really am inside I've finally found myself Fighting for a chance I know now, this is who I really am
Come, break me down Bury me, bury me I am finished with you, you, you Look in my eyes You're killing me, killing me All I wanted was you Come, break me down Break me down Break me down
What if I wanted to break What if I, what if I, what if I (bury me, bury me)
