Bullet in my Hand Lyrics

I've got a fast life and
A slow cuttin' knife
I've been drinkin' at a poisoned well
No home and a bag of bones
And nothin' else left to sell
I know why I'm in this hell
I just don't wanna believe
Past that line you just can't tell

    The Video is clearly war themed. A recurring image is a man walking around a medical tent looking at the wounded. The song is about survivors guilt. He got one more shot at living, some of his buddies weren't so lucky.

    If you've ever attended 12 step addiction recovery meetings, then you know... this is what we sound like :). Gratitude... a certain feeling that we've dodged a bullet and fortunate to be alive... ultimately, God is watching and helping.

    Addiction bad choices hurting the people you love all go hand in hand. This song is saying its never to late to change or make a good choice. I can relate alot!!!!

    I think its about someone who has made lots of mistakes in their life and is getting a second chance to make things right.

    I think it has dual meanings. I saw the video and the spitfire shown in it makes me think that it references both addiction recovery and the Battle of Britain

    I think he was in a war and the war was a darkness and he got shot in the hand and the person looking out for him is one of his partners who covers his back, notice the video shows war scenes and he is in an army hangar.

    An obvious religious overtone in this song. "There's someone lookin' out for me" followed by "I came out of the darkness with a bullet in my hand" and a bridge of "Can you see the light? I can see the light". Also the lines "I know why I'm in this hell, I just don't wanna believe"

    These lyrics seem to be referencing a religious experience where the writer was at a very bad (dark) point in their life and found God and the bullet is a metaphor for a Bible or knowledge. The light being "the right way" or "the truth".

    My interpretation is that it's about a guy who was about to commit suicide and realized that it's not the way to go and
