Bulletproof Lyrics

Contemplating, isolating
And it’s stressing me out
Different visions, contradictions
Why won’t you let me out?

I need a way to separate yeah
But I promise you that I’ll make sure you never forget me
(Never forget me)

Now that you want...

    Lyrically, the song, along with its respective album, are related to the band still being together and functioning well as an unit for over twenty years Frontman Sully Erna said of writing the song:

    I always write about things that have affected me on an emotional level...But if I choose to do that, I have to be prepared to be honest and vulnerable. And so the challenge is figuring out how 'exposed' you want to be with personal information. But I've also learnt over the years that, for me, being transparent, even to the point of embarrassment sometimes, is so much better than holding it inside and extending that pain longer than you need to. 'Bulletproof' is just another moment in my life when I allowed myself to be vulnerable and got hurt. It's this kind of carelessness from other people that eventually hardens you and forces you to put up that wall to protect yourself. So when and if they circle back around and try to get back in, you make yourself bulletproof.

    For me this song is about being controlled and manipulated, and then becoming immune to their efforts to control you. It’s a song about breaking the cycle of abuse suffered at the hands of a narcissist

    This song speaks to me in so many ways. I have lost the love of my life and father of my children to drugs. I can’t begin to explain the hurt I have endured along with anger and regret. It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time. I am completely bulletproof after so many years of deferred hope that he would get clean. Great song and certainly hits home for me!

    To me this song is everything to do with living with an addict. Feeling alone and isolated, hoping time and time again that when they say they're going to get help its true and being utterly shattered when they relapse, not to mention the monster known as withdrawl, and suffering through it time and time again hoping it will be the last time until you have been hurt and broken so many times it no longer hurts or disappoints you and you realize you've stopped caring, you have no fight left and nothing they do can hurt you anymore... Too far gone.
    My husband picked up a crack habit 2 years ago, i have fought, pleaded, taken the blame, wiped the tears, been positive, offered tough love- i have tried it all, today i close on my own house away from this and embark on my new life and not looking back.

    Stubborn. Open your heart and forgive. Forgive yourself or the one who hurt you the most. Release it. For you.

    He's obviously tired of trying to cope with an addict

    If you've ever lived with an addict? Or loved an addict it gets to a point that they put you thru so much with the lies the manipulation, stealing from you, finding them out cold?

    No matter what you do? They don't change or want help?
    Until you feel like your losing your mind?

    That's my interpretation anyway..I unfortunately have had more than my share of dealings with addicts..
    An active addict you can't trust,or with the love because it's only gonna hurt you if they don't want help?

    If anyone reading this is an addict? I'm not saying this to be mean or hurtful
    My daughter has been an IV addict for 11yrs now she has Hep C n a needle broken off in her arm? She just let's the Fentanyl run her life. So now you know I'm not saying anything about addicts that's not true?

    I pray for the best n I prepare for the worst

    My heart is bulletproof it has to be!
