lyrics

(Kev Sez)
Skyline pops midnight, side sittin' a bus ride
Ticket paid, hard intent, scanning for a welcome hand, I got
Long arms but no reach, I can't find the current, drowning
in the spiral, wondering if it was worth it, thinking
back to the souls that I had left behind, set aside
Can't tell if I'm making progress or ridin' to die
Ballad of the almost family man, set in sea tones
I hadn't spoken lovely since the last time I had been clothed
In folds of violet, soul becoming violent, had to
leave it all behind, silent behind the eyelids
Sedatives, backstroking through the memories
Fingering the pill container, black bird and mammaries
No chance at funerals, I smoke another coffin nail
Wrapping in black, back turned to effigies we set sail, but
pain is perception, past intentions sweat out
So I'll keep walking the path I found myself on when I set out

This is the first attempt at a second chance I never thought I'd get (x4)

(Kristoff Krane)
At seventeen I started spinning
Out of control, then lost connection with the inner vision
The vision within so vivid back when we were kids
Until we were convinced that being different was some sort of sin
Wanted so bad to fit in, desire to be a cool kid
Environment was conducive to hierarchy, the influence
Of others I believed to be higher than me made me do it
I'm tired and trying to sleep, wide awake, dying, thinking that if in their
Eyes they could see me for exactly who I was
I wouldn't have to try to hard to be somebody they could love
But to appreciate a scar you've got to learn to feel the cut
Remember that you're made of stars and all it takes it looking up, but
It wasn't enough to heal 'cause I guess I needed
Four and a half months away from family and friends to find true meaning
I've always had all the love and support I ever needed
Not being able to see them finally helped me see it

This is the first attempt at a second chance I always knew I'd get

Now that I got it I'm gonna do something positive
Honest remaining modest, I promise to learn and live

This is the first attempt at a second chance I always knew I'd get
but here I am, understanding the spiral's concurrent with movement
and a lifestyle conducive to progress if you induce it
Once you find the map then I don't think you'll ever lose it

This is the first attempt at a second chance I always knew I'd get
There's no regret, for with each step I understand that I am blessed
The air is fresh, the world is new like I just got pushed out the womb
Larva bloom from dark cocoon, the butterfly, the sky is blue

This is the first attempt at a second chance I knew I'd always get (x3)
Now that we got it we gonna do something positive
Honest remaining modest, we promise to learn and live
