[Sia]
You shout it out
But I can't hear a word you say

I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

[Chorus]
I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium

[Sia]
Cut me down
But it's you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I'm talking loud not saying much

[Chorus]
I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
I am titanium
I am titanium

[Sia]
Stone-hard, machine guns
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, those bulletproof glass

[Chorus]
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
I am titanium

    I think the meaning is that no matter what someone says to you, you don't care and the words just bounce right off of you. This like the song about true colors is great to teach the world about anti-bullying. I hope after reading this comment, you do unto others as you would have them do unto you and never again be a by-stander. Stay strong, live life, love others and show your amazing true colors. If you have been bullklied, but keep it all inside then please, stop. Tell an adult or someone you trust incase you can't let words just bounce off of you. This song is an amazing song. Thanks and bye!

    I think the meaning of this song is that we don't have to be afraid and that we can be strong. Also wen we stand up for what we believe in we are "titanium. " and once we stand up no hurt full or negative words can bring us down. (aka: "the bullets"). We are so strong for what we believe in that since we are like titanium that the "bullets" ricochet.
    P. S> I can totally see this song in those intense and emotional commercials about the olympics where someone wins or something. :)

    I really feel connected to the video. Had a hard time growing up, spent a lot of time daydreaming.
    The video carries the emotions I would typically walk around with. I felt alone, everyone out to get me, strong, but never able to give back. Not because I could not, I was a strong kid, but because I had a mental block against such (protected upbringing). In my daydreams, however, I would give them all what they deserved, although I always knew it would never become reality. Super powers, fist fights, all the things boys day dream about.
    So. An unassuming good-hearted kid having a daydream about superpowers, and how he would escape it all. Perhaps david wilson, who directed the video, connected the same way as I did. And, hence, interpreted the lyrics of the song, into the video.
    One thing for sure. Never want to be 14 again.

    In my opinion, I think this song says how ever much people try to harm you, or try to make you different, or if they dislike you for being different, on the outside you are just one piece of armor, but inside nothing should ever change you and you shouldn't try to change your self. As tough as things are, inside you can always be yourself, and by doing this, you will never truly be defeated. ~ mushroma.

    I have a partner who can be verbally abusive. I don't mean a little bit. Over 20 yrs she morphed into her mother. I used to fight back and get upset. Now I respond with love no matter what she says. I am titanium. I have learned to recognise the abuse and to disengage from how I feel about it. Either she will eventually change or the karma of her rage will destroy her. This song means so much to me.
