'Rescue Me' Music Video
Jared Leto and the other members of 30 Seconds to Mars have yet to make a comment about Milicevic's departure. However, their over three-minute "Rescue Me" music video suggested that they are saddened by their pal's exit.
The music video opens with close-up shots of various people who all have somber looks on their faces. Around 13 seconds into the clip, Leto appears, staring into the unknown. He continues to sing the lines to the song while more faces are shown on the screen.
"Rescue Me" is all about a person's plea to be saved from the demons in his head. At one point in the music video, the camera pans out to show Leto's full body. The other subjects also scream and break into a dance throughout the clip.

Jared Leto Talks About 'Walk On Water'
Following the release of the album, Leto talked about "Walk on Water," where he sings a line about making love with the devil.
"So if you make a deal with the devil, there are certain things you can expect. 'Walk on Water' is a song very much about the times we're living in," said Leto.
