Hollywood Undead: Bullet Meaning

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.

    It's one of the happiest songs that's about depression and suicide.
    The happy tone in the song means that ,although we are sad,depressed and feeling suicidal,we don't want others to see it because they can't help us and worry for nothing.

    If you think about it, there has to be some kind of personal experience with alcohol, drug abuse, and self harm. Nobody could just write this because they wanted to. There has to be some kind of meaning behind it. This song is about somebody who has had many problems in the past and started to just give in. They had many scars, deeper than just their skin, stated by the lyrics "I'm more scarred, more scarred than my wrist is." That means he has scars on his soul, his spirit, because of what has happened to him. In the second verse, Johnny 3 Tears brings the abandonment of the boy by his father and being neglected and ignored to light by stating "A Mother, a Son, and someone you know, smile at each other and realize you don't, you don't know what happened to that kid you raised. What happened to the Father, who swore he'd stay?" In first verse, it tells that he has had too much going on and too much happening in his life and he's getting tired of it and just wants to get away from it and end it all and the only way he's gotten through all of this is with alcohol and pills by stating "Gone too far, yeah I'm gone again. It's gone on too long, tell you how it ends, I'm sitting on the edge with my two best friends. One's a bottle of pills and one's a bottle of gin." Basically, this song is about somebody who has had enough of all the abuse, neglect, pain, and suffering in their life and they are up on the roof of a 20 story building about to jump. They start to hear the sirens in the distance, as their mother has called the cops after she found his suicide note, and he suddenly realizes that he has to move quick and get this over with before he is stopped and can't. His mother never told him what happened to his father, who had sworn he'd stay, and she didn't really pay attention to him. He has never wanted to jump more than he ever has now and he has been persistent with the cutting, the alcohol, the drugs, and he has scars that go deeper than the ones he's made on his wrist. He doesn't care how he has to do it, he will kill himself and get away from all the things that have caused him so much suffering for so many years.

    Its easy to see that this song is about suicide and cutting drinking but its just talking about the young teens and people that do all this and its also talking about the bands past lives

    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.

    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.

    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.
