"Bullet" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy, Paul Robert Thompson and Alexander Ragnew....
Time is like a bullet from behind
I run for cover just like you
Time is like a liquid in my hands
I swim for dry land just like you

Time is like a blanket on my face
I try to be here just like you
Time is just a fiction of our minds
I will survive and so will you

We are the only ones right now that are celebrating
And we are joining hands right now
We are the only ones right now that are suffocating
We are the dying ones right now

As the water grinds the stone
We rise and fall
As our ashes turn to dust
We shine like stars

Kisses on the dancefloor in my past
I need some comfort just like you
Beating like a bass drum time goes by
I want the last dance just like you

Drowning in the flood of morning light
I'm only human just like you
Do you hear the city waking up
I will survive and so will you

We are the ones the only ones
We are the ones the dying ones
We are the ones the only ones
We are the ones and we are joining hands
We are the only ones right now that are celebrating

As the water grinds the stone

    General CommentTime will kill everyone eventually, but the world moves on. We are the ones who realize this, and dance the night away on the dancefloor, celebrating life in it's entirety. Amazing.

    General CommentTo me the first line seems to tell it all. 'time is like a bullet from behind'. Time will catch up with you, whether you want it or not. You will die eventually and you should live in the moment because you won't know when your time will come.. The song is cool, but when I 'analyzed' it now it seems more optimistic than it sounds.. dunno

    General CommentIt is a beautiful description of what time is and how we interpret it.
    I never fully appreciated this song until I read it here.

    General CommentNailed it Kitsune...This song means just that to me. There was this friend of mine, we would all go out to the industrial club. She had cystic fibrosis (sp), but she would dance her heart out. I know this song held that meaning for her. Sometimes we would all just gather in a circle in this song, drunk on the adrenaline, and enjoy our time on earth. Rest peacefully Lisa.

    General Commentofcource the main meaning is that time will catch up with you we can all read. but its the other things also sod in the lyrics that does the song we are the ones dying and we are the ones also celebrating it. we have to celebrate that we lives but we cant ignore that one day ineviteble we will all die, its not negative its positive as long as we arent dead we live and that is what we should celebrate
