Get "Titanium" on MP3:Get MP3 from Amazon
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...

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 :)

As most of us know Titanium is a strong metal where as it as used to describe how the person deflects insults in this song. " you shout it out but I can't hear a word you say" means how this person ignores these insults. " fire away" is ment to recognize how this person has began to get used to these insults and where as they push them to continue saying these insults( they obviously have been going on a long time ). Finally " sicks and stones may break my bones" we all know that saying but... ( grabs dictionary and hits random jerk ) they still can hurt mentally or physically so this person has been hurt by these insults before.

The whole theme through the song is that the person telling the story is done being cut down by people's words and actions.
"You shout it out, but I can't hear a word you say"
It's not that the narrator is saying he can't hear, he has become so used to the things said about him that he has grown numb to the insults and the pain.
he has realized now, probably growing older, that he has nothing more to fear. "Sticks and stones may break my bones". That the voices that once tore him down can't hurt him anymore.
Since he has realized that he is no longer able to be hurt by their words, it becomes clear to him that he is in a way invincible.
From a writer's standpoint I don't think that he's actually claiming some sort of supernatural power. I actually think of the ending is much more sad than that.Because even though he may be bulletproof I think that he's only bulletproof because he's been beaten so much that he has built a resistance to the pain that once haunted him.
further more "I'm talking loud not saying much" means that he has already been convinced that his opinion is not going to change anything. "Fire away fire away" not only is he no longer afraid he has begun to accept it.

This video is about a chosen one born I to this world and he is being followed all his life by spirits that take over anyone in his life to harass and belittle him. Apparently the child has supernatural powers which radiate in the unseen world. His radiation destroys the etheric world which manipulates the humans so they send CIA free masons to find him. Later he passes two women, a fat one and a skinny one. He wipes his forehead in relief which means during his time he will be sent two woman to distract him but he gets free. Then he gets home which is the color of the universe. He is alone he looks at the TV which says " supernatural event at local school" because he released an EMP which detroyed the etheric witches and warlocks which live in a parallel universe at that same school. Then the room has a super argo poster on the left that says " he got the power to safe the world" and a game on the right that says emergency
Indicating the democrats and Republicans of the masonic order are panicking a mashiach is here. but senses its time to go. The floating animals are effected by his magnetic energy. He then runs through the forest and is almost caught by FBI CIA but he uses an EMP from his soul and destroyed them.

Titanium is you when you flop in your class group presentation so you cry a little and get back up. Titanium is you when you look nothing like other girls so you are made fun of but you show up every time and slay because you love yourself anyway. Titanium is you when you are broke but you go on anyway. Titanium is you when are at the crossroads with no one by your side and you feel like dieing but you get ahead anyway.
This song titanium is about a strong person or thing who/which has refused to back down despite all the bullets,sticks and stones and insults thrown at him or her/it. It is about taking all the lemons that life has thrown at one and turning it into a big ass lemonade.

I love this song because when I’m feeling down I just sing this song in my head. I think the song means that you have been picked on so much that you realise you don’t get hurt by the words because you are used to it. So it makes you feel invisible, you can’t be defeated and I think it is a powerful message to everyone who gets bullied so that’s why love this song. Thanks for reading :)

When I wrote the song it should be a duet but I asked David to come and sing with me it will be like fun to taught him to use my instruments and we’re so lucky to have him as a writer, he had great voice and amazing songwriter, and he wrote this song and send it to Ben, and obviously we’re going to have the song finished by the time we’ve been heard and we’re glad that David came and we’re going to the beach with Ben and I we will have fun and write our songs and starting performing together it’s like summer vacation it’s our first summer vacation together, that’s why we deciding to go the beach and have fun.

I think it is showing the journey through experiencing trauma and the story shown is a metaphor. At the start the kids sitting small and alone among tatters while the teacher looks scared and doesnt understand what the kid is feeling then she closes the door. The kid wanders for a bit, finds an exit and leaves feeling scared and exposed. The kid then jumps on a bike and gets to their home, their safe place as quick as possible until the threat finds them there. The kid accepts life has changed, throws away the teddy, the last of childhood innocence, grabs only what they need knowing theres no going back and busts through a very tough door. Acceptance. The kid runs through many scary and unfamiliar places alone while still being chased. Eventually it catches up with the kid and is a very chaotic and confronting moment as everything falls on the kid at once. They fully break (the beginning treatment) then they explode with strength and blow away what has been chasing them for so long. The lyrics: talking loud, not saying much, cant hear a word you say. Trauma can create a brain fog directly after. Its like being underwater. People talk and say things but the disassociation from the real world can in a way mute those trying to help. Sticks and stones break bones, Im bullet proof, I am titanium could be a way of telling the world they just cant touch you because youve overcome so much that now youre as strong and unbreakable as titanium.

When I wrote the song with David he used the mixer for the dj but I’m being good this year but Jonas brothers are going to write that song to my record but it’s so good to record that song it holds that note and try to sing sias part. She’s such amazing talented young lady, I love her, she’s so inspiring. But her husband is closer to home and also Austria is about 26 miles from Virginia.

I think for terrifying to face something that we’re closer toward the scary parts. But someone isn’t going to protect me. Accept Jonah. He doesn’t fear of anything of any scary sound. But it made him scared but his brother is there.
