"Bully" as written by Dave Bassett, Brent Smith and Zachary Myers....
It’s 8 AM, this hell I’m in
Seems I’ve crossed a line again
For being nothing more than who I am
So break my bones and throw your stones
We all know that life ain’t fair
But there’s more of us we’re everywhere

We don’t have to take this back against the wall
We don’t have to take this we can end it all

All you’ll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don’t hurt can you hear me
No one’s gonna cry on the very day you die you’re a bully

Think it through you can’t undo
Whenever I see black and blue I feel the past, I share the bruise
With everyone who’s come and gone
My head is clear my voice is strong, now I’m right here to right the wrong

We don’t have to take this back against the wall
We don’t have to take this we can end it all

All you’ll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don’t hurt can you hear me
No one’s gonna cry on the very day you die you’re a bully

It’s 8 AM, the hell I’m in
Your voice is strong, now right the wrong

All you’ll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don’t hurt can you hear me
No one’s gonna cry on the very day you die you’re a bully

All you’ll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don’t hurt can you hear me
No one’s gonna cry on the very day you die you’re a bully

We don’t have to take this back against the wall
We don’t have to take this we can end it all

    General CommentThe meaning is pretty clear cut,but it's still a very powerful song. The line that really gets me every time is, "It seems I've crossed the line again for being nothing more than who I am."

    General CommentIt's 'push THEM to the dirt' not him, but otherwise spot-on. Though it would have been better to put the prechorus at the end in parenthesis.

    Love the song.

    Link(s)Read about them on a dutch news site where there was an article about them (for those who can read Dutch, or want to have a laugh with some translation software: nu.nl/muziek/2774711/…)
    The essence of the song is in the video interview, and I stand completely understand him, I fought my fights in the past to stand up to my bullies, and my father did about the same as his father; he showed me how to fight as a last resort.

    My OpinionThis song is really good and I used it to get throught the hard times I was getting bullied. I hope it works this good for other people!

    General CommentAhem, it should be "you're a bully". "Your" is possessive.

    This is a really good song. I love the message.

    General CommentI agree dragonizer. This is a great song with an awesome message.

    The lines:
    "Your voice is strong
    Now right the wrong"

    is the right direction... people should be speaking out more against it... being a bully or not is a choice.

    General CommentClearly the narrator is a student who is very popular and getting along well with his peers among whom he is well received.

    General CommentI think there is a bigger overall message to this song. I think this song is about the government being a bully to all of the little people. Thats why they all chant when he says "we don't have to take this, we can end it all!' (overthrow the government) If you listen to the song with those thoughts in mind then it seems to make alot of sense
