Tune Tuesday: ‘City of Angels’ by 30 Seconds to Mars

Every Tuesday here at TMI Source is Tune Tuesday, where we share a song that relates to The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices or The Dark Artifices.

This week’s Tune Tuesday – “City of Angels” by 30 Seconds to Mars – comes from TMI Source staffer Megan.

“I think the perspective (though in Los Angeles) is almost exactly Jace. It talks about overcoming and trying to be strong when really you have your own fears to deal with,” she wrote.

“City of Angels” by 30 Seconds to Mars

There was truth
There was consequence
Against you, weep defense
Then there’s me, I’m seventeen
Looking for a fight

Lyrics:

“City of Angels” by 30 Seconds to Mars

There was truth, there was consequence, against you.
A weak defense, then there’s me
I’m 17, and looking for a fight.
All my life, I was never there just a ghost, running scared.
Here our dreams are made, the one.

Lost in the city of angels
Down in the comfort of strangers. I
Found myself in the fire burnt hills.
In the land of a billion lights.

Bought my fate, straight from hell.
A second sight is paid off well.
For a mother, a brother and me
The silver of the lake at night.
The hills of Hollywood on fire.
A boulevard of hope and dreams
And streets made of desire.

Lost in the city of angels
Down in the comfort of strangers. I
Found myself in the fire burnt hills.
In the land of a billion lights.
 I Found myself in the fire burnt hills
In the land of a billion lights

(Land of the billion lights)
(Land of the billion lights)
(Land of the billion lights)
(Land of the billion lights)

(Angels, Angels)

I am home, home, home, home.

Lost in the city of angels
Down in the comfort of strangers. I
Found myself in the fire burnt hills.
In the land of a billion lights.

One night, One love. (repeat)

The city of angels  (repeat).

  1. the kill by 30stm fits also very well!! hope they are going to be on the soundtrack! 🙂

  2. This has to be in the Soundtrack! Plus Magnus will approve of Jared Leto! 😉

  3. Ooh you added a song by 30stm ❤ it indeed fits well 😉
    would be great if they were on the soundtrack!

  4. I had been listening to 30STM’s earlier album that relates so well to the series, it’s all I think about when I listen to it. So excited when I heard they’re coming out with a new CD, then I saw one of the songs is City of Angels! Can’t be a coincidence, they must have made that song for the movie! Or am I just going crazy because of my obsession with this series, lol.

    by the angel, i heard this last night and it definitely suits the movie! it would be so awesome if it was on the soundtrack. maybe they’ll change it to new york if it is

  6. It maybe just me but this would be a great song to end the film with – with Jace and Clary flying with the motorcycle in the sky…or something like that! XD

  7. this song is all about Jace! lol love it!

  8. You should put anytime you need a friend- sung by the beu sisters
    Because it has to deal with Clary and Simon’s friendship throughout the series!!!!!!! Please, I really recommend this song!!!!
