30 Seconds To Mars, “Vox populi”

Avui toca una dosi de rock. Aquest grup de rock alternatiu que es diu 30 Seconds To Mars porta tocant des del 1998 però fins ara no havien publicat cap cançó amb un referent clàssic.
El seu lema és Provehito in Altum i un dels seus símbols és l’Argus apocraphex.


Una de les cançons del seu nou album publicat a finals del 2009, This is War, és la cançó Vox Populi.
Aquí us deixo el vídeo i la lletra:

This is a call to arms, gather soldiers
Time to go to war
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war

Did you ever believe?
Were you ever a dreamer?
Ever imagine heart open and free?
Did you ever deny?
Were you ever a traitor?
Ever in love with your bloodless business?

This is a call to arms, gather soldiers
Time to go to war
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war

Ever want to be free?
Do you even remember?
Want to be God, the Devil like me?
Ever want to just stop?
Do you want to surrender?
Or fight for victory?

Here we are at the start
I can feel the beating of our hearts
Here we are at the start

Darkness falls, but here comes the rain
To wash away the past and the names
Darkness falls, here comes the rain
To end it all, the blood and the game

Far, far away in a land that time can’t change
Long, long ago in a place of hearts and gold
Far, far away in a land that time can’t change
Long, long ago in a place of hearts and gold

This is a call to arms, gather soliders
Time to go to war (Far, far away…)
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war (Long, long ago…)
This is a call to arms, gather soliders
Time to go to war (Far, far away…)
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war

This is a call to arms, way of the night
This is a battle song, way of the night

Què vol dir Provehito in altum? Amb quin ésser mitològic pots relacionar el logo de la banda? I Argus apocraphex? Quina relació té el títol de la cançó  i el seu contingut, per què es diu així?
