"Bullet In My Hand" as written by Alexander Francis Barry, Mark Christopher Kasprzyk, Thomas Tawgs Salter and Walton Steven Gagel....
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
With a bullet in my hand

    General CommentThe song is about getting another chance. The darkness is his low point... Someone looking out for him may be God or another spiritual belief. Or perhaps, even a loved one who helped him see "the light".

    Personally I think the song is about a drug addict hitting rock bottom and getting another chance at life and realizing he is lucky to be alive and grateful to have somebody/thing helping him see his wrongs.

    General CommentTo me personally its about Suicide. Whether it be about drugs(overdose),or like me a bullet survivor. The reason I think it's about suicide mainly with a gun, is because the lyrics and even the song title, 'Bullet in my hand.' The darkness is depression that ultimately drove him to suicide. And something saved him. He awoke in the hospital seeing the 'light', basically what drives him to do good now.

    'A cold stare, and the wound's still there.' Is basically him being dead. 'The long black car', is a hearse waiting on him to die.

    Whoever or whatever saved him gave him a second chance at life, and he's lucky to be alive.
