Nickelback – Side Of A Bullet lyrics

Uncle Sam taught him to shoot
Maybe a little too well
Finger on the trigger, load it, pull it
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
On 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
On 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
On the side of a bullet
On the side of a bullet
On the side of a bullet
On the side of a bullet

    Ok for all you people who obviously do not know Pantera Diamond Darrell was the guitarest. After their first four albums, Projects in the Jungle, Power Metal, Metal Magic, and I Am The Night, he changed his name to Dimebag cause they were getting rid of their glam look cause they realized that it wasn't for them. So if you are going to say learn you Pantera then you have better learn yourself cause he went by the name Diamond for almost half of Pantera's career.

    To honor his good friend Darrell, Chad asked Darrell's Brother Vinnie if he wanted to contribute to this tribute song. Vinnie donated an unreleased guitar lead that Darrell had recorded several years before. So, the lead portion of the song is actually Darrell palying. Knowing that Chad added something so special, as Darrell playing on his own tribute, is amazing.
