Bullet Proof..I Wish I was Lyrics - Radiohead



Review The Song (11)


Limb by limb and tooth by tooth,
Tearing up inside of me,
Every day, every hour, just wish that I...
Was bulletproof

Wax me, mould me,
Heat the pins and stab them in,
You have turned me into this, just wish that it...
Was bulletproof
Was bulletproof

So pay me money and take a shot,
Lead fill the hole in me,
I could burst a million bubbles, all surrogate...
And bulletproof
And bulletproof
And bulletproof
Bulletproof

To me this song is about the helplessness he feels towards conforming to the world around him. "Wax me, mould me,
Heat the pins and stab them in, You have turned me into this" helps reinstate that he feels like he is being molded without control. "So pay me money and take a shot" refers to the how people are making a living from money they are paid by their bosses but ultimately are being molded into something they are not, and in the end no company you could ever work for will be loyal so you will be shot down eventually. "I could burst a million bubbles, all surrogate..." is him talking as the hierarchy, whether it be his boss or the government, saying that they could shoot down a million people but it doesn't matter because they can always mold more. Surrogate means substitute, that is why i think that.

Andrew Scheelar... Nobody fucking understands you. Is it necessary to insult everybody commenting the song?
In my opinion, the song is pretty simple. How, every human being is so emocionally weak. We all wanna be bulletproof becouse we are scared of death of pain, when it's just part of life. We are fragile souls that hate death, and we all wanna be bulletproof to be protected from the world itself.



HAHAHAHA | Reviewer: Andrew Scheelar | 3/9/10

You all are a bunch of Bloody Cunts! the song could be about anything.What i wrote years back is what someone i worked with told me years back and reading the lyrics it seemed to fit.He was a drug addict piece of shit that liked to blame other people for his problems.Not only blame someone for what he did but spread rumors and put the blame on someone else.Most people could relate those lyrics to what they been threw in life and could be anything.I heard Thom Yorke never touched a drink or drug in his life anyways...??? thats what John told me...Fucking Douche bags you probally think Radioheads greatest song is Creep!



weak, sensitive, desperate | Reviewer: Goblast | 3/29/09

My viewing of this song, my favorite of radiohead, is that the person is sensitive, somehow a little weak, desperate and powerless towards the things that he lives and he just wish he was someone stronger, that he could repel the bad things by being bulletproof. The bullets being the obstacles in his life.
Radiohead rules



my way of seeing it | Reviewer: lib. | 3/26/09

this song is about sensitive people emotionaly unstable. "You have turned me into this " refers to people responsible for ruining their childhood. boolletproof is their desire for being impassive n then feeling better."Wax me, mould me,
Heat the pins and stab them in," is their feeling of helpnessnes . "Lead fill the hole in me" is their problem handling caused by daddy issues.



Heroin? | Reviewer: john | 2/25/09

You analysis is full of crap. How do you dare to say it is a misconception based on the band individual experience!! I am sorry but radiohead deals with all situations they are not selfish or self centered. Take for example the song all i need they wrote this song about child slavery in asian countries. as far as i know none of them are asians or slave. your approach is quite selfish, close minded and ignorant. Based on your jugement you dont deserve to listen to their music and judge it.



Heroin? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/15/08

Heroin? That is a gross misinterpretation with no backup facts. Sure, you could say that is what the song is about but have any of the band members even done heroin? If they haven't, why would they write about it?

This song sounds more like it is about the band itself and their relationship with the music industry. They are being used, "moulded" and "waxed" which is tearing them up. Sarcastically, they don't mind that this is happening in the line "heat the pins and stab them in". He just wishes that they could be bulletproof, perhaps emotionally from being used while just wanting big business to pay them. In the end they determine that they will have to take the emotional blow to get the pay with the line, "lead fill the hole in me." They burst in a "million bubbles" which is why you got this song. Ironically the song is not them, but hoisted upon them by the industry ala "surrogate". They feel they cannot stop being commercially used. I believe this is a common theme in the album since the band wanted to get beyond the Creep label, which is why they unleashed their frustrations in the Bends and changed their style



I Wish I Was Bulletproof From The Shots Of Heroin | Reviewer: Andrew Scheelar | 5/23/07

Another Song About Heroin Addiction .Thom Yorke Wishes He Was Bullet Proof From The Shots He Takes. But If I Wasn't For Drugs You Would Never Have Heard This song Or Any Other Good Radiohead Song. Radiohead The Greatest Band Of This Generation.
