  • Lyrics
  • The lead single from 30 Seconds To Mars' fifth album is a rousing call for society to take up arms.

    "Walk on Water is a song for all of us," singer Jared Leto said. "It's a song about freedom, about persistence, about change and about fighting for what you believe in. It is a call to arms but also full of the optimism and hope that is such an integral part of the American Dream."
  • 30 Seconds to Mars teamed with ESPN to use the song as the promotional theme for the sports network's coverage of the 2017 college football coverage.
  • 30 Seconds to Mars performed the song live for the first time at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.
  • A lyric video for the song features user-submitted footage depicting Independence Day in the United States.
  • The patriotic Jared Leto-directed video is compiled of fan submissions, after 30 Seconds to Mars made an open call for footage documenting "a day in the life of America." Each clip is tagged with a state and a time of day, reminding viewers that the footage was recorded in real time.

    "Over 10,000 generous and creative people submitted footage - in addition to our 92 professional crews," the video's caption reads. "We filmed in all fifty states, Puerto Rico and D.C. and captured a portrait of this country that is absolutely beautiful, challenging and unforgettable."
