Lyrics

Once you soak in all of this
Stepping back from the abyss
Now you’ve set your ballast free
Think you see the ends you can’t attain 
But you just can’t stand the pain

Once you think you know it all
You’ve never had so far to fall 
Scream again your safe refrain
Another sunken chance to act humane
Cause you just can’t stand the pain

Once you’ve set your mind to it
You give up more than you’d admit
Despite your chances to explain
You try but you can’t always make it rain 
Cause it’s too much fucking pain

But in the middle of the dance you start to recognize the flaw
“It doesn’t matter if I understand the point at all”
“The things I clung to in my past to make sure I could stay afloat”
“Did nothing but distract me from the safety rope”
“If I’m a different man then I don’t know if I can take the shame”
“Of never really knowing when or where to lay the blame”
“But it’s another chance to cut the deadweight loose and find my soul” 
“Will I take it or drift to a distant shore?”

It’s another chance today 
It’s another chance to put the lighthouse in your sites
Loose the anchor and reclaim your life
It’s another chance today
It’s another way to find it on your own again
It’s not too late to set your world alight
It’s another chance today
It’s another chance to finally fill your heart and then
Empty it of all that held you back 
It’s another chance today 
It’s another way to let the deadweight fall away 
Never looking back to see it go

Your backbone is hit or miss
Can you really handle this?
An outcome you can’t explain.
Comfort is not easy to obtain 
It just might be worth the pain.
