“The Story”

Jared: Don’t believe what you read out there. Everybody knows that’s just a bunch of garbage. I’ve been, ah, dating my dog, Judas, for a number of years now. And that’s about it. But ah… you know, those magazines tend to make sensational stories, most of which are complete crap… But, ah, you know, sometimes they hit the nail on the head. I am in a band, they got it right. Called 30 Seconds to Mars. And yes, this isn’t actually my brother (Jared looking over at Shannon), he is my live-in lover of so many years now.
Shannon: Yah. (nods) You heard it first, here, CD USA. 
Interviewer: Interesting.

… and then Jared sings, “this is the story of my life…”



“You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you don’t even have a name for.”
