I wonder what you taste like
The salt within your skin
Evil rages inside
Now I'm hungry for blood again

The moon invites the madness
Brings out the worst in me
Don't tell me this thing's loaded
Please don't tell me anything at all

You put
The gun
In my hand
So now run
I'll stall
The demons
But you really should be leaving

I never meant to hurt anyone
I really thought that we were just having fun

But you put
The gun
In my hand
So now run

It's cheaper to be guilty
Than lie right through my teeth
But god damn it kills me
More than you'll ever think

How'd I become so ruthless?
Where is the other me?
Don't tell me this thing's loaded
Please don't tell me anything at all

You put
The gun
In my hand
So now run
I'll stall
The demons
But you really should be leaving

I never meant to hurt anyone
I really thought that we were just having fun

But you put
The gun
In my hand
So now run

You put
The gun
In my hand
So now run
I'll stall
The demons
But you really should be leaving

I never meant to hurt anyone
I really thought that we were just having fun

But you put
The gun
In my hand
So now run

    I think this song is about someone who treated the singer badly. John uses the imagery of the gun as a metaphor for his agency and his ability to do something stupid/reckless. This person has treated him badly and left him which has given him this urge. I think that "I never meant to hurt anyone, I really thought that we were just having fun" is from the other person's perspective saying that they thought they were just having fun but really they messed with him, leaving him in a vulnerable state in which he may do something he regrets.
