David Guetta: Titanium Meaning
Song Released: 2011
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...

I think its about how hes been bullied and put down so he had enough. He looks like he let out so much anger that it created his supernatural powers to come running to him. He then freaks out the school and tries to find somewhere he can be safe and himself without being judged. The first place anyone would think of is home. But when he sees the news report he realises hes in even more trouble because the human race does not like anything different, we are scared of it and so send in the army and whatever. He then realises he is on his own but will be bulletproof & unharmed by the bullies/army/ the people who are scared of the unexplainable. He runs away but remains unharmed because his supernatural powers saved him. I think overall it says that humans are scared of difference and that if that difference causes someone trouble, someday they will overcome it and become better then everyone. Sorry its so lenthy xx

from listening to the lyrics for a good while and the official video i have come up with this
it is about a kid, to be honest he is a bit goofy looking and therefor he most likely isnt very popular at school its sad but thats how it is he then makes somehting happen at school which freaks everyone out. when hes riding his bike it makes it look like hes going fast and he cant be stopped and he also passes that rather large women who again most people would laugh at the idea of her jogging but shes showing them just like the boy is doing all along. when the army get involved that just shows how humans treat anyhthing different or a threat.
the song is about no matter who you are you can achieve anything and you can be whoever and whatever you want and always keep going. there is always inner strength even when the game is up.

Never be afraid to show who you are, stand up to anyone, from bullies to gunmen! The official video shows a boy who blew up his school and is going to be shot for doing so, but he stands up and is 'Titanium', so no-one can beat him down.
Sounds cheesy, but is true. Hope you like it!

The kid has superpowers and people fear what they cant understand. The kid searches for someplace to take him in, to love him, to understand him and understand what he has been through, what pain he felt. He created the explosion out of rage and nearly destroyed the school. Now knowing nowhere was home where no one cared and would care he does all he needs to protect him. No nothing holds him down now, nothing can stop him and restrain him from being invincible or titanium. He will now do whatever it takes to stay safe even though he will be chased by the military, air force and cost guard but he will NOT STOP. The fear caused him to loose control and now the fear has turned to rage and now to sadness at realizing he is totally alone in this world.

To those who have not given up from all sufferings that they are experiencing until they succeed because they always believe that " you may start nothing , but you will end up with everything ". Bullies , discriminations , or etc. are factors to make someone challenged to become strong.. Just like Titanium , has a strong chemical elements which can't be broken.

The person was bullied. He had so much, that his immense anger caused a supernatural power to be upheld from inside him, causing a rupture of power, and an explosion. The woman on the phone in the beginning was calling the police, and so the boy had to run. After the military forces were (somehow) brought to this matter, the story ends with how it began; A rupture of anger and fear, causing sudden power.

I think this song is about bullying.
Sometimes when you scream or cry, People won't ever hear you.
They'll start to push you on the ground and make you stay there until you've finally given up.
But if you get back up, You become more stonger and braver in life.
Don't listen to people who criticize you.
Your just being yourself and no one will ever change that about you.
No one is perfect in this world, No matter how hard they try.
Your unique and beautiful in every way.
If you give up they win in the end.
But if you prove them wrong, You win for being the brave one.
They can shoot you down many times.
But you'll always be standing on your feet.
When people say they care, Most of them are lying they're only showing there fake/haunted love.
You can raise your voice,But the words will come back,Breaking your bones like sticks and stones.
But hang in there more longer.
Because if you do, It'll all be better in the end.You'll find a new road with new beginnings.
Keep walking and don't turn back.

I think that it is about a kid who was either being bullied or he was really scared. He blew up thee school with his powers because he felt scared so he went to his house. He saw he was being hunted and he knew he was alone he uses his mind powers to get out of the house and into the woods. In the video when one of the SWAT team members scream stop the boy is crying if you look closely. He realizes that he has nowhere to go because they have guns, so he goes in the position that is in the beginning of the video and uses his powers again.

I think it's about a kid that is really upset because he is being messed around with.he is tired of it so he releases his powers witch connect to anger it causes a big explosion and the police go after him he runs with a thought in mind saying I will be safe. The police catch him but he protects himself from getting shot that's what I think.

When I watch the video, it felt like the kid did something bad in the school and spent the rest of the movie running from the authorities. The fact that "a supernatural occurrence" is used in the news headline is disturbing from a faith perspective. It was obvious that harm and violence had occurred and in light of the recent violence in our schools I think this video is a bit scary.

Well, the reason I stumbled on to this site was because I needed to "explain" the meaning of this song to a young singer so she could "get her heart behind it", so to speak. So I did. That was a little unusual for me because I usually don't think or put such things into words.. I just "feel" them. But anyway, I wanted to see what others thought. What I told my friend was.. it's like.. it could be any situation that you could imagine.. but what basically, I feel is being said can be put into very few words..just like the song.. "You can do anything at all that you want to do to me, say anything you want.. makes no difference. If you "shoot me down" in some way? I will get right back up. I am TITANIUM... bite me!" That's what I told her anyway. LoL

I think this song is about a kid who is bullied and really just wants to be not bullied. He got so angry that his school was a big mess. When he gets home,a news report is saying the kid made the school kinda destroyed.When he saw that news report,the police came and he had the super power to make everything float. When he got into the forest,the police caught him but the kid had a powerful power to make the police men get hurt. So what I think titanium means in this music video and song is that he is very strong and powerful.

He has some the same powers as the guys in the movie chronicle

I think it was about someone who had scoliosis and they had titanium put in their back and people are mean to them but they are titanium and now they can't be hurt because they're bulletproof. :)

The video shows a kid, probably who has been bullied, maybe a bit awkward, surely a bit scaried, who strikes back with his supernatural power (yet without doing bodily harm to anyone),and later,even chased down as a criminal (which obvious an innocent being like him is not), but in the end is the winner even in front of an armed swat team.
Yet the meaning is more general than about bullying in school or childhood: it's about resisting the duress - which happens also with bullies,but not only - and standing up for your rights. The bullets are just a metaphor: it's about the emotional stress brought by mean behaviour, mean workplaces, mean families. Every person could find the inner "titanium" self when faced agression.

they were sooo jealouse of his superior sexxiness. that they had to mass orchestrate a hate conspiracy against him.... he brushed it off. ate a heath bar. and boned super hotties the whole time. smirking....than dipped out....with a big metaphorical smack to that society as a whole..... smug as hell and extremely flattered that people would create such a mass ordeal bout him.....then orchestrate it so meticulously. only too have him topple every ones attempt at his sexxxy pride. to no avail. than turn into the number of the beast looking like a male version of cindy crawford with a pen@*s so large that it was prolly hurting ur wifeys tum tum whilst u slaved all day at %werk ye silly lil kraut bergers ; )

I feel the kid in the video did not realize his powers at first and reached a breaking point, finally releasing his true inner strength against those who have shot him down. He stood up for himself for the first time and feeling unsure he runs home only to have no one there to listen or turn to. He has to turn to his inner strength again for a bigger bully at the end but knows he won't be harmed. Even when you stand up for yourself, bigger bullies may come. Your inner strength of titanium and knowing words will not hurt will make you stronger! Be strong!

no matter what people did to you, do not blame and hurt yourself. we need to be strong, firm inside out. never let people put u down n keep moving on.
i know one guy that i will love him forever eventho he didnt realize or appreciate it. he changed my life.
anonymous Sep 18th 2012, 22:37 report
One good interpretation I was inspired to love was it was about a person who fell in love with someone who couldn't love them back. And after all this time, the tables had turned, (ricochet), and now she won't listen to his confessions because she feels like he's only kidding her. And she stays firm to her notion that they can never be together, no matter what the other says.

Looks like a kid going overboard after kids bullied him. Standing up for yourself is one thing, this video seems to promote massacre type action. Never forget Columbine.
anonymous Aug 26th 2012, 12:07 report
This song reminds me of the aurora massacre. "Machine gun, firing at the ones who run". kinda errie.
anonymous Aug 12th 2012, 15:26 report
love this sad song. I think it's the "war" at the end of a relationship. the singer used to be the weaker part of it, but now it has changed: there is a mental armor, a new inner strengh. I think a very strong powerful but sad fightsong.-
the vid is an adaption of the theme...(being weak becoming strong), imO not exactly fitting to the text :)
