"Take the Bullets Away" as written by and Mark L Holman Rob Hawkins....
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

    My InterpretationI believe that this could be about someone who has given up all faith in God.

    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

    This could mean he is thinking about suicide of the darkest time in his life

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

    He is trying to find his religion again and his final thought is to blame it on the Son because maybe this time is different, thinking it could be some sort of punishment

    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

    The man is asking himself if he is worth living on this world from disappearing or if he should try to take his life already. He is trying to run this question through his head of thinking if he could trust the Son. Maybe he wants the Son to take away the pain and bullets so he doesn't think about the thoughts

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

    This man has tried to start so many different things to help get noticed. None of these have helped, so that's another reason why the man is thinking of suicide.

    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

    He finally thinks that if he shows he is not afraid of anything, maybe the Son could help him bring the positive side to him back and to help take away his thoughts and troubles
