Oh yeah, oh yeah-ah, that gun is loaded

I know that I messed up a few times or watcha wanna call it
I know if I fell down, you'd change the way that I saw it
I put it on the line for this time only
(Is that what you really want?)

I can't see that I got red hands, I'm colorblind singing (day-oh)
Don't put the blame on me, child, the damn thing gone wild (day-oh)
Never wanted to be fooling you, can't believe I was wounding you-oo
(Is that what you really want?)

Oh yeah, oh yeah-ah, that gun is loaded

That gun is loaded, but it's not in my hand
That gun is loaded, but it's not in my hand
The fire burns, I'm not the one with the match, man
That gun is loaded, but it's not in my hand

Oh yeah, oh yeah-ah, that gun is loaded

I've seen it all before, you back out, and everything's changing
I needed something more, you stepped down, so what are you chasing?
I put it on rewind for this time only
(Is that what you really want?)

I realize that I got red hands, I wanna change this (day-oh)
Don't ask me why I choose to lie, I stay blind, oh (day-oh)
It's clear to me that you are human too, your accusations are burning through-oo
(Is that what you really want?)

Oh yeah, oh yeah-ah, that gun is loaded

That gun is loaded, but it's not in my hand
That gun is loaded, but it's not in my hand
The fire burns, I'm not the one with the match, man
That gun is loaded, but it's not in my hand

Oh yeah, oh yeah-ah, that gun is loaded

Oh yeah, oh yeah-ah, that gun is loaded

    So, he's dating this girl who's really optimistic and forgiving, and he's cheating on her without her knowing. This other girl lives far away, so the first girl thinks the guy seems to leave whenever something bad happens to her (which isn't true, it's just a coincidence). Then she tries to break up with him and tells him she feels he leaves whenever something goes wrong in her life, then he knows he's doomed so he blurts out how he only left because he was seeing this other girl. Hence the "I can see that your fuming too, your accusations are burning through". (it's supposed to be 'fuming' not 'human'). It's gotten to the point where "the gun is loaded, but it's not in his hands", he's in so far deep into his whole cheating business that he has no control over it now. That's what I think it means. Either that or it's a nonsense song that means nothing at all.
