You shout it out
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium

Cut me down
But it's you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I'm talking loud not saying much

I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium, I am titanium

Stone-hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, thus bulletproof glass

You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
I am titanium

    My Interpretation:Its finally here...when you watch the video, you see a child who is special. We all know what many feel about special children: they are generally afraid, scared and withdrawn. This child must create an inner strength in order to survive. No matter the obstacles, keep going, life is hard, but only if you let it beat you down. This song is an inspiration to those in need such as: developmentally delayed, Autism, Down Sydrome, ADHD, Cerebral palsy and more...even when this song is replaced by new songs, this one will remain one of my favorite. The power of both Guetta's beats and Sia's voice bring the lyrics alive with meaning. Thank you both. Yes, I live with Autism.

    General Comment:Pretty simple I think. I laugh sometimes at the crazy meaning suggestions that people come up with on here. Usually a song can mean whatever you want or need it to mean for yourself. In this case I think it is a concrete black and white meaning. Its simply about being stronger than those around you, whether it is a bully, ex, parents, etc. If someone is trying to cut you down, then you have to be harder than that, Titanium. Pretty straight forward I believe.

    My Interpretation:I just love it. I see this as a song about not letting other people getting in the way of what you want, and just going for it. A real self esteem booster of a song.

    My Interpretation:This song, at least to me, is about refusing to admit defeat, grinding and pounding your way to the top despite the fears, second guesses and self doubt that one may have.

    My Interpretation:I think this song is about building a protective shell around yourself and refusing to fall down. I think this song was meant to try to ignore the desperation and fear you are feeling and daring someone to bring it on.

    "I'm bulletproof nothing to lose' You feel as if you have nothing left to lose, and are scared to keep moving on, but you have made yourself bullet proof in your mind.

    My Interpretation:I think this song means people can say what they like, but the writer doesn't care and won't take the comments to heart. I love this song. Epic beat from Guetta and awesome lyrics. <3 x

    General Comment:I think the meaning of this is people can say or do what they like but don't stand for it you are better then that. You are stronger then that and nothing can stand in the way of what you want.
