Limb by limb and tooth by tooth
Tearing up inside of me
Every day every hour
I wish that I was bullet proof

Wax me
Mould me
Heat the pins and stab them in
You have turned me into this
Just wish that it was bullet proof

So pay the...

    You know when you're so full of grief, of loneliness, of regrets and bad reveries; when you feel like that person have taken all kind of delight and pleasure you used to have, and all that was left in your body is the cold memories and the sorrow, and at the same time you're so void, you are also so heavy, you feel like sinking all time long. You're in the middle of this huge mess and you don't know what to do, what to say, how to escape; the only thing you can possibly think about is the wish dwelling in your soul, the deep wish of being bulletproof, of being unachievable, of feeling nothing. And I interpretate "Bulletproof... I Wish I Was" in this level. I think this song is so beautiful, so painful... Definitely one of my favorite songs ever.

    I think it means that he wants to live and to live in our world right now and in the state that it is right now it's best to be bullet proof. Of course like all of Thom yorke's songs they are very open to interpretation it doesn't really matter what it means to somebody else. I think that's what Thom likes. Songs that mean something to you and your not very sure why. Bulletproof is one of my favorite songs.

    I think he means that he wish nothing would harm him, much like the first interpreter on this song says.

    This song has to do with public displays of affection.
    It is obvious.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think this song has to do with abuse, and the other sad events that occured throughout his life, and how he wishes he is "Bulletproof" AKA: "Harmproof"
