Bullet in My Hand

Album: Something For The Pain (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Redlight King is a contemporary Rock Band lead by Canadian singer/songwriter Mark "Kaz" Kasprzyk. The singer penned this song during a bleak period in his life, when he was struggling with substance abuse. "Most of it was written while the feelings were still there," he told Noisecreep. "My songs are written about real issues, real experiences. I like to bring listeners in deep, and give them time to look around."

    "You know why it's happening," Kaz recalled of his struggles. "You don't know where the end is, you've lost all rationality. You're borderline insane. But in the end, you make a decision to start again, and the only way was to forgive myself for my mistakes."
  • The video was shot in the Hamilton Warplane Museum, which is located in Kaz's hometown.
