* Door closes, gun cocks *
Ooooohhhhh!
My disposition is in a position for all to see,
Regretless of how it feels.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.
Cuz the cause for the pause you think you see,
Is really concentration of the steel.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.

You see everybody's watching and,
Passing judgement on,
Every little move and decision I make.
How can I be an individual,
With the weight of the world,
And 8 other planets to take?
And with everything happening,
Gun shots clappin' and,
People are running in every direction,
With their hands up prayin' for the drama to end.
I got my hand out,
Lookin' for some money to spend.

The price tag of the things I need,
Are getting bigger by the day.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.
Oh, the way I work so hard for things,
They just take away from me.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.

Ohhh,
I'm working harder than a hundred black mules down in Mexico,
No water, no cloud, no cover,
From the hotter than hell,
No dinner bell, empty oven again,
From another bad opinion.
I mean,
Who doesn't want the cars, money,
Fame, attention, bars, honey's,
Games, attention, stars,
Funny, How we say we don't need it,
Then turn around and try to achieve it.

The price tag of the things I need,
Are getting bigger by the day.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.
Oh, the way I work so hard for things,
They just take away from me.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.

And everything that they say about me,
And everything that they make me need,
Are nothing when they're taking everything away from me.
And everyone, trying to make it harder,
And everyone saying I would never be,
Are nothing but a name, on the bullet I aim.
On the bullet that I aim,
On the bullet that I aim!
The price tag of the things I need,
Are getting bigger by the day.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.
Oh, the way I work so hard for things,
They just take away from me.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.
I got a bullet with a name on it,
Bullet with a name.

    General CommentThis song pretty much speaks for itself... I'd say the stand-out lyrics for me:

    You see everybody's watching and,
    Passing judgement on,
    Every little move and decision I make.

    The price tag of the things I need,
    Are getting bigger by the day.

    Who doesn't want the cars, money,
    Fame, attention, bars, honey's,
    Games, attention, stars,
    Funny, How we say we don't need it,
    Then turn around and try to achieve it.

    Society's criticism of you while you deny all those things but then you just wanna get all that stuff to shut them up and to get by with everything. Sort of like "The Unforgiven" by Metallica, but not as artistic or in-depth =P Still a good song, though.

    General Commenti take it to be kinda like a "fuck you" to society.

    it says that everyone is watching you. they criticize, then turn around and do the same.

    it just says i have a bullet to shoot down whoever doesnt like me.

    General CommentA lot of different things can come out of this. People always have their own interpretation of songs as thats what the song writer goes for. You cant solely base it towards only one interpretation.

    I just like it with the raw energy. I dont believe its about turning to crime, I think its more devotion to becoming the best YOU! and NO ONE will stand in your way no more. A figurative bullet with a big FU and a side of shove it up....also implies that with the way of living and cost of things is getting out of hand.

    General CommentI guess you can maybe somehow think it was korn since it was the first time you heard it...but you must not know korn all that well either. Listen to more Nonpoint and korn and come back.

    General Commentrefreshing lyrics. ..the weight of the world and 8 other planets yeah........

    really reaching determination about the things you need and want in life. that might be the obvious meaning but it's definitely the one i get.

    General CommentThey f'd up, theres really only 7 other planets now, scientists officially decided pluto is not a planet. This whole issue just ruins the song for me.
