The question asked in order
To save her life or take it
The answer no to avoid death
The answer yes would make it
Make it

[Chorus]
Do you believe in God
Written on the bullet
Say yes to pull the trigger
Do you believe in God
Written on the bullet
And Cassie pulled the trigger

All heads are bowed in silence
To remember her last sentence
She answered him knowing what would happen
Her last words still hanging in the air
(In the air)

[Chorus]
Do you believe in God
Written on the bullet
Say yes to pull the trigger
Do you believe in God
Written on the bullet
And Cassie pulled the trigger
Say yes and pull the trigger

How many will die?
I will die
I, I,
Will say YES!
And Cassie pulled the trigger

[Chorus]
Do you believe in God
Written on the bullet
And Cassie pulled the trigger
Do you believe in God
Do you believe in God
Written on the bullet
And I will pull the trigger.

    This song is about Cassie Bernall, a girl who was killed in the Columbine shooting. One of the gunmen allegedly asked her if she believed in God and told her that if she said no they would let her live. She said yes and thet killed her. She was a modern day martyr.

    As people said, its about the Columbine shooting, a man asked Cassie if she beleived in god, if she said no he wouldnt kill her, if she said yes he would. She says yes he kills her. Then he asked that to Rachel, she says yes, he shoots her, but she doesnt die, he asked her again, she still says yes, and he shoots her again and she dies. Its about how if you really truly beleive in something that you wouldn't betray it for anything.
    Luv this song, love Flyleaf they Rok

    i love,love,love this song.. when we're out there in the dark,trapped in a very difficult situation and feels like there's no way to be safe.. this song will remind us how faith is very important in every individual.. and in every decision that we make, God is still the best answer..

    Okay so this song just came onto my radio and I automatically knew what she was talking about. I have close relations to Columbine. My cousin was on campus that day and left an hour before. Thank god. I will always be thankful for that.. Im glad that Flyleaf wrote a song about Cassie and Rachael.
