30 Seconds To Mars: The Kill Meaning
The Kill Lyrics
Laugh it all off in your face
What would you do? (Oh, oh)
What if I fell to the floor
Couldn't take this anymore
What would you do, do, do?
Come break me down
Marry me, bury me
I am finished with you

it's not "burry me burry me"
it's "bury me bury me"
learn to spell before you call someone else an idiot
and no, I'm not the one who thought it was marry me

He did an acoustic version of the song on MTV and said, "This is a song called 'The Kill'. But don't be scared, it's a nice song....about losing your mind."
Check out the video...

i think that he is talking about himself to himself. There isn't really a person there except himself. "I tried to be someone else but nothing seems to change I know now, this is who I really am inside finally found myself fighting for a chance I know now this is who I really am.... He drove himself crazy trying to fit in with everything and everyone else and realized that he was better off the way he started. He likes who he is and doesn't have to try to be someone else.. He knows that it doesn't work that way... He can't be someone he's not.
-that is why in the video he is fighting himself....

sigh......so everyone is saying how it's about a girl and a boy. Well I think it's about just any type of relationships. It could be about a child wanting to be accepted by their parent. basically it's about having two personalities and always having to hide a part of your self because people don't always accept who you really are as a whole. sometimes it kills people to know that they have to hide because the think they won't be accepted. Then people get tiered of hiding and end up pushing people away by being mean
The director of ''the shining'' is Stanley Kubrick, not Stephen King, and I agree with the fact that they took the idea of the film, which took place in hotel.I think the group tried to relate the video to the film in order to make us understand the real meaning of the song. The lyrics say it all, it's about going crazy and looking for who you really are, fighting with something else(inside of yourself)... That's pretty deep but that's also what this film's all about. The principal character, Jack Nicholson, goes totally insane. If you haven't seen it, rent it!!! It's a total work of art!!

for those who say, "its about a girlfriend trying to change her bf. "
i don't think that's it at all
have you seen the f***ing video
its about having a battle with yourself.
how sometimes you just can't stand yourself.
and the only person you have a problem with is you
its about being all alone

the song is about losing your mind mr. leto said it himself.
but ill agree with everyone else this song is dedicated
to a girl. Its a hate song he is telling the
girl in the simplest words to
fuck off that he doesn't care for her
anymore and things like that
everyone who listens to what music says and
not just to how it sounds would have figured
that out the 3th time they listened to this song

I feel the song is about wanting something so bad but don't know how to get it.Someone you want very much but they think your not good enough when you know things could work out but I guess somethings are never meant to be and that really sucks.

About the person who wanted to know about the video, the video is based on one of the coolest movies ever made "the shining" by Stephen King, yes, a horror.

This is the the dude a few posts above me,
"marry me, bury me"
"bury me, bury me."
the song is about one's relationship with one's self.

I think the song could actually have a lot to do with jared leto's career as a musician. Both the song and video kind of made me think that he's getting tired of being the 'musician' and 'himself' as well.
In the video, there are two of him at the hotel they go to in order to take a break. One in a tux (representing the musician) and one in casual clothes. And they're fighting, like it's pulling him apart to be two people at once.
I dunno, that's how I saw it.
