Shinedown – Bully lyrics

It's 8 am, this Hell I'm in
Seems I've crossed the line again
For being nothing more than who I am
So break my bones and throw your stones
We all know that life ain't fair
But there is more of us, we're everywhere

We don't have to take this, back against the wall
We don't have to take this, we can end it all

All you'll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope, so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don't hurt
Can you hear me?
No one's gonna cry on the very day you die
You're a bully

Think it through, you can't undo
Whenever I see black and blue
I feel the past, I share the bruise
With everyone who's come and gone
My head is clear, my voice is strong, now I'm right here to right the wrong

We don't have to take this, back against the wall
We don't have to take this, we can end it all

All you'll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope, so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don't hurt
Can you hear me?
No one's gonna cry on the very day you die
You're a bully

(Solo)

It's 8 am, the Hell I'm in!
Your voice is strong, now right the wrong!

All you'll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope, so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don't hurt
Can you hear me?
No one's gonna cry on the very day you die
You're a bully

All you'll ever be is a fading memory of a bully
Make another joke while they hang another rope, so lonely
Push them to the dirt till the words don't hurt
Can you hear me?
No one's gonna cry on the very day you die
You're a bully

We don't have to take this, back against the wall
We don't have to take this, we can end it all (x4)

    I was bullied when I was younger. I stood up to them and I gained the power. You need to stand up to them and show them that you are stronger than they give you credit for. I see so many things on the news from children getting plastic surgery because they are being bullied constantly and that is just not right. If you see someone being bullied help them out and stand up to that bully for them. Sometimes being bullied makes the victim end there life because nobody stood up for them and that is very wrong.

    I'm being bullied at school by someone who use to be my bestest friend in the whole world. I received an email from her email account and now she's accusing me of sending it to myself and impersonating her. She's denying everything and spreading rumors about me. The teachers don't believe me and are forcing me to shut down my facebook account. Now she's acting like nothing ever happened. She told lies to my parents saying I was suicidal but she's suicidal not me. My parents keep a close eye on me all the time. No one believes me and cry my self to sleep every night. But I have had enough. I miss being happy. This song describes how I feel.

    I was bullied @ school and abused by my mother. My friend has it worse. His father beats him every day. The bully at school beats us both. One day, I was running with him to practice and the bully grabbed him by the neck. I grabbed the bully and threw him on the ground and pounded him in the face. His nose was bleeding and he had a black eye. My friend later told me he was so grateful. Do what I do. Stand up for yourself. You can end all the bullying.

    Verble, mental, emotional and physical abuse against any living creature, with the outcome of fear, pain, insecurity, heart break, confusion and even suicide. When ever I hear this song it reminds me of my mother when she use to abuse me! I love her still and have been through a lot of confusion and am still trying to convince myself to counseling as to why she did those things to me. I'm still very hesitant confronting her about it. If she tries anything I think I might go on a beating spree. Its so weird now that I'm 21 shes so nice to me. Its so creepy.

    You should be ashamed to be a bully, you shouldn't feel ashamed to be the victim- for whatever reason you're trying to explain their inexcusable behaviour. You're the one with a bright future; not them, because you're not afraid to be yourself & bring something unique to the table (which is how we achieve a evolving world). Bullies are the weaklings hiding behind their artificial and temporary status; their power rein is normally short lived to their time in high school, and when you're older you'll realise they are the one's without a life after learning the hard way (no job no friends etc.) that they can't treat people as if they were beneath them. I just wish someone had told me this all earlier.
