Biography

Nasally growls, outlaw anthems, and songs for the damned and lost. Bullet For Joey sings for you, the ones who can't get through life without a bottle of whiskey. For the ones who need to shoot up in order to get by and deal with the ever changing, constantly evolving road to Damnation.

Let the words of William Barnet be your guide through the belly of the beast. Let him take you by the trembling hand and lead you past the valley of dead things. Let him ease your temptations and curb the cravings for liquor and loose women.

Pay no heed to the false prophets and the devil's lies. On the radio or on the web, his legions will find you. They will take you in the night and burn your soul with their Pop Culture. Be strong and stand tall when face to face with the Fallen; turn away from the bright road and walk the long twisted dark road, for it is the road to salvation!

To those of you who seek the light, and choose to walk the hard road to paradise, we welcome you.

Amen!

Lyrics

Remembering You

Written By: Derick Aguilar

I know you’re leaving me soon
I’ve known for a while
Packing away
Everything that reminds me of you

Somewhere along the way
You went left
And I went right
And in the shuffle
I was left behind

It don’t matter what I say
Or even if I beg
In you’re heart you’re as good as gone

What was it you said
To me, the night that you left
Whispering in my ear
A phrase you never meant

Somewhere along the way
You went left
And I went right
And in the shuffle
I was left behind

It don’t matter what I say
Or even if I beg
In you’re heart you’re as good as gone

My only lover is a bottle of rum
Guess what
You won
I’m broken

Trying to erase
Every trace of your face
But it’s all in vain
Cause when I wake
I'll always remember you

Fame & Glory

Written By: Derick Aguilar

Listen up boys
I’ve got a plan
As I savor this
Whiskey in my hand
Now make no mistake
It ain’t for the faint
And if you have faith
Walk away

We march at dawn
With loaded guns
Death awaits us son
Let there be blood
When we are done
Our spirits marching on
Fame be the our fate
When we’ve gone
It’s the key
To Immortality
Though our bodies
Will fall apart
Our fame will linger on
To lure generations to come

We’ll arrive by the bus loads
All at once
Headshots and scripts all
In a bunch
We’ll practice our parts
Spread out across The Blvd.
Then rendezvous
For coffee when we’re done

We march at dawn
With loaded guns
Death awaits us son
Let there be blood
When we are done
Our spirits marching on
Fame be the our fate
When we’ve gone
It’s the key
To Immortality
Though our bodies
Will fall apart
Our fame will linger on
To lure generations to come

A small roll
A cameo
Commercials on the radio
Just stick to the script
And we’ll go far
We’ll be stars

We march at dawn
With loaded guns
Death awaits us son
Let there be blood
When we are done
Our spirits marching on
Fame be the our fate
When we’ve gone
It’s the key
To Immortality
Though our bodies
Will fall apart
Our fame will linger on
To lure generations to come
And fail

You come from rags
You’ll die in rags
Without cold hard cash to back you
You’ll never make it
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya

The Devil & His Bride

Written By: Derick Aguilar

He puts the poison in me
Keeping the sickness for himself

He haunts the night
Snatching his pray under full moon light
He leaves his mark inside their veins
Open fields become their graves
As he rides on
To another pretty face

Her name was Mary
Dark skin, curvy hips
And puckered lips
She was just his style
And before she reached her door
He slammed her face into the wood
And carried poor Mary away

He puts his poison in me
Keeping the sickness for himself

Poor girl wakes in time
To taste the floor
Thru blood stained eyes
She sees her man
With a needle in his hand
And death in his eyes

She tries to run
Chains lose their grip
As he gets her in the hip
And as she begins to slip
She grabs the syringe
And jams it in her slayer’s eye

He puts his poison in me
Keeping the sickness for himself

Morning light shines thru broken window frames
Their struggle now at an end
Leaving no victor, only remains
In a shanty, deep in some forgotten plain
Sprawled across a blood stained floor
Their lay, in an almost romantic way
The devil and his stolen bride
Two murders in their own right
