"Life is a Bullet (The Heart of Darkness)" as written by and Jerry Horton Jr Tobin Esperance....
My mind has been shut down
My friends have been let down
What is the reason?
There's millions of reasons

Single me out (single me out)
Tear off my front
Make me expose
What I conceal

[Chorus]
Life is
A bullet
The bloodstains
Will prove it
It's tearing through you and me
Not caring about you or me-e-e

Now I could explain everything
You've cursed the fire now fuck the flame
What is the reason?
There's million of reasons

Blindfold me now (spin me around)
Spin me around
Picking me up
When I fall down

[Chorus]

Today I feel blue
My head is in the clouds
Separate me
My soul from my body

Today I feel blue
My head is in the clouds
Separate me
My soul from my body

I'm feeling so lonely
I'm not the only one
Separate me
My soul from my body

'cause I'm in love with too many things
And I hate everything

Single me out (single me out)
Tear off my front
Make me expose
What I conceal

Blindfold me now (spin me around)
Spin me around
Picking me up
When I fall down

[Chorus]

I'm in love with too many things
And I hate everything

    General CommentHahaha PapaRoacher, u seem to think EVERY song is about the hurt in a relationship. I mean I feel the same way , I can relate almost ever song to me relationships. But This song can also be about just being generally depressed, and how life is so overwhelming. "My friends have been let down" could mean just letting down your friends by being so depressed and not having time for them.

    That's just my opinion :-)

    General Commentthis is on of my fav. songs on the CD and i can really relate to the lyrics, like the 'today i feel blue...' and 'i'm in love with too many things and i hate everything...' etc. and i relate to this song as it just being about depression in general. except i always try to be happy around my friends and not let my problems get to me.

    General CommentI thinnk its about pain in a relationship and how it can confuse you. blindfold me now spin me around picking me up when i fall down is telling us that he can have his eyes covered and he can be spun aroun and confused but when he alls he can be picked up. his body is showing different signs from his soul and mind. he doesnt want o feel that way.

    General CommentI change my thought...

    I think this song is about how you can never predicte what will happen next in life...

    Sometimes it tears through you like a bullet...

    Sometimes it picks you up when you fall down...

    Sometimes it Blindfolds you and Spins you Around...

    The future is a mystery...

    General Commenti think this song is about how life fucks u over sometimes. nothings ever good enuf. and how u need help sometimes "pick me up when i fall down" its also sayin that u dunno wat u want in life "i'm in luv with too many thing, and i hate everything." thats just my opinion
