Bullet in My Hand

Album: Something For The Pain (2011)
  • 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
    But right now
    There's someone lookin' out for me
    I came out of the darkness
    With a bullet in my hand
    I got one more shot at livin'
    I'm lucky that I can
    Cause I got a little roughed up
    Yeah I really got fucked up
    I came out of the darkness
    With a bullet in my hand
    I got a cold stare, the wound's still there
    But there ain't much left to bleed
    A short fuse that I still use
    I'm my own worst enemy
    Stare at the faces I once knew lined up just to bury me
    There's a long black car that's waitin' to leave
    But right now
    There's someone looking out for me
    I came out of the darkness
    With a bullet in my hand
    I got one more shot at livin'
    I'm lucky that I can
    Cause I got a little roughed up
    Yeah I really got fucked up
    I came out of the darkness
    With a bullet in my hand
    Cause I got a little roughed up
    With a bullet in my hand
    Yeah I really got fucked up
    With a bullet in my hand

    Can you see the light?
    Can you see the light?
    Can you see the light?
    I can see the light
    I can see the light
    There's someone looking out for me
    I came out of the darkness
    With a bullet in my hand
    I got one more shot at livin'
    I'm lucky that I can
    Cause I got a little roughed up
    Yeah I really got fucked up
    I came out of the darkness
