Found on: The Bends
Limb by limb, tooth by tooth  
Tearing up inside of me  
Every day, every hour  
I wish that I was bullet proof   

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

So pay the money and take a shot  
Lead-fill the hole in me  
I could burst a million bubbles  
All surrogate and bullet proof  
And bullet proof
And bullet proof
And bullet proof
One of the songs that prompted reviewers to believe that Thom had some serious personal problems, "Bullet Proof" actually has a more universal meaning, which invites the listener's personal interpretations. This is truly one of the best songs in the band's roster, and one of Thom's own favorites. The instrumentation was created by Jonny and Ed; they recorded their guitar noises without listening to other layers of the cut. These guitar sound tracks were then put together and mixed with the rest of the song.
