Bullet Lyrics

My legs are dangling off the edge
The bottom of a bottle is my only friend
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
Gone, gone, gone, gone

My legs are dangling off the edge
A stomach full of pills didn't work again
I'll put a bullet in...

    As a lifelong psychology student, I think this is one of the best representations of depression and suicidal thoughts I've ever heard. The music is so happy that it conjures thoughts of the perfect life (almost too perfect) that people with depression pretend to have for the world, because society stigmatizes depression and mental illness in general. The narrator of the song is clearly depressed and suicidal, but the musical background of the song represents the mask he (and many people with Major Depressive Disorder) put on for the world. Solid song.

    Suicide, but why the cheerful mood? This could be a
    Will. Sounds like it.

    To be honest, I think the song is about people who are depressed and are thinking about suicide (hence the lyrics) but put on happy faces and tell everyone they're okay (hence the tune).

    A sadistic, usage of depression, and little humor, used in a way of rap and catchy lyrics, with a moralistic tone, and good beat, yet a serious manor. The moral/meaning of this song is showing how their childhood was harsh, and how they were unnoticed by their parents, and very optimistic views over their lives.

    I believe this song is encouraging suicide. It's actually quite frustrating at how many people like it, and say it's convinced them NOT to kill themselves, when the song is clearly talking/giving ways to kill ones self. I don't know why someone would find that "unconvincing".

    The song is about suicide, but it tells a story, in a sense.

    "My legs are dangling off the edge
    The bottom of the bottle is my only friend
    I think I'll slit my wrist again
    And I'm gone, gone, gone, gone
    My legs are dangling off the edge
    A stomach full of pills didn't work again
    I put a bullet in my head and I'm gone, gone, gone, gone."

    This person is extremely depressed; they drink a lot and have attempted suicide before to no avail, but now they're going to get it over with.

    "Gone too far, yeah I'm gone again
    It's gone on too long, I'll tell you how it ends.
    I'm sitting on the edge with my 2 best friends—
    One's a bottle of pills, and one's a bottle of gin.
    I'm 20 stories up, yeah up at the top
    I polish off this bottle, now it's pushing me off
    Asphalt to me has never looked so soft
    I bet my mama found my letter, now she's calling the cops..."

    They wrote a suicide note to their parents and climbed to the top of a 20 story building, and are ready to kill themself. They brought the pills and alcohol with them for the last few minutes, and they're saying that "asphalt to me has never looked so soft," meaning that they've never wanted to jump more than now.

    "I gotta take this opportunity before I miss it
    Cause now I hear the sirens and they're off in the distance
    Believe me when I tell you that I've been persistent
    Cause I'm more scarred, more scarred than my wrist is."

    Their mom called the police to save them and they hear the sirens and are preparing to jump. They're saying that they've tried to stay alive and get better, but they can't anymore, they don't want to live.

    "I've been trying too long with too dull of a knife
    But tonight I made sure that I sharpened it twice
    I never bought a suit before in my life
    But when you go to meet God, you know you wanna look nice."

    They've attempted suicide many times and are now finally going to do it once and for all. They're preparing to meet God in heaven.

    "So if I survive,
    Then I'll see you tomorrow.
    Yeah I'll see you tomorrow..."

    I think this could be perceived as the way when someone is suicidal they're wary to tell people, so every time they say goodbye for someone, they're not sure if they'll survive the rest of the day.

    The 2nd verse, I think, is someone watching the first person stand on the building and prepare to kill themself, and they're thinking about how so many people feel the same way, including young people.

    Its about me and how I spoke to one of the band members and he told he is father had committed suicide and he didn't want me to do what his dad did so he made me this song

    Thank you very much Charlie scene for talking me out of committing suicide!!!

    I think it is about young men and women having suicidal thoughts. And that this can be stopped hence "so if I survive then I'll see you tomorrow" And also how young men and women have the thoughts about their life going nowhere and they decide to take the easy way out with suicide.

    I believe that it is a song about one of the group members who at one point in their life had family issues and had trouble living through his life so hence he began to cut himself and drink and take downers and then it came to a point where he just wanted to end it all where as it came to jumping off a building or trying to take pill or shooting themselves J3T's daughter at the end symbolizes that the group member who went through his suicidal phase is trying to say its not worth killing yourself and that you have a life to live ahead of it so don't end it now

    They each had a past, and as you can see one of them has suicidal issues. Most of this album is about the rebirth of the band. This song is about their past suicidal lives, hiding from their parents, and hopefully moving on to something better. Yes this J3T's daughter. And i personally think that she sings the part of their movement from these ideas. and finally living a happy life.

    This song has nothing to do with an actual act of suicide, all of the above people think "THEY TALK ABOUT SUICIDE SO THAT MUST BE WHAT ITS ABOUT" when in reality, it's about the innocence of children, and the cruel world in which they grow up, and eventually see.

    It's about someone who wants to kill themself, but they just can't come to do it and they are debating whether they should do it or not.

    The Song provides many details about Scene wanting to commit suicide, also hinting at the the fact the Charlie Scenes father himself committed suicide.
