"Biting Bullets" as written by Michael Kelland Hutchence and Kirk Pengilly....
Don't you wonder
Is anyone that strong
It takes me under
Believing what I'm seeing
I get so tired of watching friends go down
The hungry tiger for all who never began

Biting bullets
Biting the clouds
Biting bullets
Biting the clouds

I saw the show
Shaking all the babies
Should I believe the parade of clever lies
Shadow of light in the shadow of death
There is no difference to all who never began

There was a time
There was a way to live
And it's no secret
That it won't come back again

I lose myself like anybody else
But I'm not so strong to make it in the end
I need some answers when the day comes crashing down
'Cause it's all over when there's no one to be found

    General CommentMaybe this interpretation is just due to all the ANZAC centenary coverage, but I can't help but think that this song is actually about war.

    The first verse could describe seeing his mates go off to war ("I get so tired of watching friends go down")

    The line "Should I believe the parade of clever lies" could refer to the propaganda used to encourage people to enlist (i'm thinking WWI & WWII).

    I don't actually know if the song's about that, in fact i'd be surprised if it was. Just a thought I had
