Side Of A Bullet Lyrics


Uncle Sam taught him to shoot
Maybe a little too well
Finger on the trigger, loaded bullet
He hit the stage so full of rage
And let the whole world know it
Six feet away, they heard him say
"Oh God, don't let him pull it."

Please, God, don't let him pull it
How could you put us through it?
His brother watched you do it

How could you take his life away?
(What made you think you had the right...)
How could you be so full of hate?
(...to take away somebody's life?
And when I heard you let him die
And made the world all wonder why
I sat at home, and on my own
I cried alone and scratched your name
In the Side Of A Bullet

And in the wake of his mistake
So many lives are broken
Gone forever from a loaded bullet
And no excuse that you could use
Could pull somebody through it
And to this day so many say
"God, why'd you let him do it?"

How could you let him do it?
How could you put us through it?
His brother watched him do it

How could you take his life away?
(What made you think you had the right...)
How could you be so full of hate?
(...to take away somebody's life?
And when I heard you let him die
And made the world all wonder why
I sat at home, and cried alone
And on my own I scratched your name
In the side of a bullet

How could you take his life away?
(What made you think you had the right...)
How could you be so full of hate?
(...to take away somebody's life?
And when I heard you let him die
And made the world all wonder why
I sat at home, and cried alone
And on my own I scratched your name
In the side of a bullet

On the side of a bullet
On the side of a bullet
On the side of a bullet

Side Of A Bullet
  • This song is about the murder of former Pantera and Damageplan guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. Abbott was murdered during a Damageplan show by a man named Nathan Gale on December 8, 2004. Gale was killed by police. Disturbed lead singer David Draiman called Dimebag's murder "The 9-11 of music."
  • The line, "His brother watched you do it" is referring to former Pantera and Damageplan drummer and Dimebag's older brother Vincent "Vinnie Paul" Abbott. Vinnie Paul witnessed his brother's murder, as he was on stage playing drums with Damageplan. Vinnie Paul's drum technician was also murdered.
  • The solo in the song is actually Dimebag playing. Nickelback called Vinnie Paul and told him they were doing a song for Dimebag. Vinnie sent them some uncut guitar from Pantera's Far Beyond Driven era that Dimebag had been working on, and Nickelback pieced it together to create a new Dimebag solo.
  • At first Nickelback wanted to have Vinnie Paul playing on the track, but he refused by stating that Nickelback's drummer Daniel Adair performed as well as he could.
  • The lyric, "Uncle Sam taught him to shoot maybe a little to well," refers to Nathan Gale's training in the US marine corp.
  • Kroeger told musicomh.com that the riffs were actually "bits and pieces that didn't get used" on a recording Chad did of Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)" with Kid Rock and Dimebag. "And as it should happen, I had this guitar riff and it was very, very aggressive. We started to piece together a solo and we simply didn't have enough material."

    Kroeger guessed that Pantera may have leftover material they could use. "I called Vinny, Darrell's brother, the drummer from Pantera, and he sent us tons of material. We went over all these great signature Dimebag Darrell guitar solos and pieced together this guitar solo that we're very, very proud of."
    The Nickelback frontman then played Vinny Paul the song. He loved it but told Kroeger, without realizing that it actually a song for Darrell, "You know what I really want you to do, Chad? I want you to write a song for my brother."
