"Bullet With A Name" as written by and Robert L Rivera Elias P Soriano....
Oh!
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
'Cause 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 judgment 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 (with a name)

Oh
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 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.

    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 CommentSame here diabolic. Everytime i hear something like that i remember Dimebag. Same for the Nickelback song 'Side of a Bullet'.
    RIP Dimebag!

    I saw Nonpoint back in 2001 on OzzFest. Been addicted since! This song is one of there best yet.

    General CommentNonpoint is so fucking awesome live! They were the first band at the 2006 chili cookoff to really get the crowd hyped. Elias has so much energy! He looked at me like he was thinking "what the fuck?" when I left in the middle of a song to get a shinedown autograph.
    Agree wit you guys mostly about the meaning. But it could possibly more specific to their lives being in a famous band...dunno
    I got a bullet with a name!
