Take the Bullets Away

  • I've got my finger on the trigger
    One bullet in the gun
    And I'm spinning the revolver
    Thinking this could be the one

    I tried to find religion
    To see what I'd become
    I was ruined by the world
    But I blamed it on the son

    Am I worthless?
    Am I filthy?
    Am I too far gone for a remedy?
    Will you help me?
    'Cause I'm dying
    To be something more than a memory
    If I reach out
    Can I trust you?
    Will you help me see the light of one more day?
    Take the bullets away
    Take the bullets away

    I've tried to build resistance
    I've tried to start a war
    But no one ever listened
    I've battled with the storm

    Am I worthless?
    Am I filthy?
    Am I too far gone for a remedy?
    Will you help me?
    'Cause I'm dying
    To be something more than a memory
    If I reach out
    Can I trust you?
    Will you help me see the light of one more day?
    Take the bullets away

    You're so disarming
    There's nothing left to fear
    You're so disarming
    I'd drop all my weapons to show you that I'm not afraid
    Take the bullets away
    Take the bullets away

    Am I worthless?
    Am I filthy?
    Am I too far gone for a remedy?
    Will you help me?
    'Cause I'm dying
    To be something more than a memory
    If I reach out
    Can I trust you?
    Will you help me see the light of one more day?
    Take the bullets away
    Take the bullets away
    Take the bullets away
    Take the bullets away
    Take the bullets away Writer/s: JUSTIN ROBERT CORDLE, MARK HOLMAN, ROB HAWKINS
