  • 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 money and take a shot
    Leadfill the hole in me
    I could burst a million bubbles
    All surrogate and bullet proof

    And bullet proof
    And bullet proof
    And bullet proof Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
