Silverstein Lyrics

13. With Second Chances



I tried to throw it away, 
I tried to burn it like a photograph
But when I close my eyes, I see it in my mind 
Like it's happening

I got so good at the game, 
No one could tell that I was faking sane (faking sane) 
I guess I still survived, but this grudge was mine 
I couldn't bear to watch it shine

Did it clear your conscience? 
Did it clear your mind? 
If you don't feel what you cheated, lied and steal 
Is that still dishonesty? 

(For every positive, there is a negative) 

I used up my honesty 
I'll tell you honestly 
I could only give you so much 
And from what you said to me 
Now you're dead to me, 
You're dead to me 

I'm sleeping miles away, 
I'm hiding out in this shrine I made 
And if it keeps me safe 
Well I'd fall from grace 
Then I'll take this space 

My skinny fingers are bare
I'm taking everything off my back (off my back)
If our skins the sin I'm desiring 
This is where we'll both begin 

Did it clear your conscience? 
Did it clear your mind? 
If you still feel what you cheated, lied and steal 
Is that still integrity? 

I used up my honesty 
I'll tell you honestly 
I could only give you so much 
And from what you said to me 
Now you're dead to me 
'Cause you've used me as your crutch

Is everywhere that I've seen 
Everywhere that I've been? 
I can't help it, it's become a part of me 
I used up my honesty 
Now you're dead to me 
You're dead to me 

You lost your dignity 
And my conformity 
Made me throw this fight 
One moment of losing yourself 
Put me through hell 
And cost me my whole life 

Second chances are weapons 
A loaded gun underneath the bed 
Second chances are weapons 
It's turned on you in the end 

I used up my honesty 
I'll tell you honestly 
I could only give you so much 
And from what you said to me 
Now you're dead to me 
'Cause you've used me as your crutch 

It's spinning me like the wind 
Every decision I'm in 
Choose my direction like I'm drowning in your sin 
I used up my honesty 
Now you're dead to me 
You're dead to me 

(This was my second chance, 
This was my second chance) 

This was my second chance 
To make it right again 
This was my second chance 
To take a stand 
This was my second chance 
To never look back 
This was my second chance 
To live again
