This Is War Lyrics

A Warning to the people,
The Good and the Evil

This Is War

To the Soldier, The Civillian, The Martyr, The Victim

This is War

Its the moment of truth and the moment to lie
The moment to live and the moment to die
The moment to...

    Ok so I took this a little more literally than most people. I think he is saying that war I going to kill us all. As "we will fight to the death" and he's explaining what war is as saying "this is war." not like declaring war.
    The reason y I don't think it is about protesting your beliefs because the music video shows several obvious signs of the illuminate.

    I think this song is about the fight from 30 seconds to mars between their agency. for 30stm this fight was about everything("the moment to live or the moment to die") and so they wanted everybody to fight with them for their right and for the truth.
    the song could be about fighting for your dreams and for that what you believe in, too.

    I like the above comments but I think that this song is "a warning to the people" and about how a war affects everybody on both sides (the leader, the pariah, the victor, the messiah)

    Jared Leto is issuing a war, but not on anything physical. He's issuing a war on any and all beliefs. He warns everyone, like, "To the leader, the pariah, the victim, the Messiah" that this is war, issueing war against all of them, challenging the identities of all. He's not going down without a fight, "We will fight to the end" and he's exposing a new side of everything, "It's a brave new world" The slate is wiped clean with all of his beliefs at the end "I believe in nothing but the truth in who we are." Maybe that's just me
