You've Got A Chance

Lyrics | Track Details

A rhapsody! Contestants in disguise
A nation of desire but who will win the prize?
The people stand united, reluctantly aligned
Copying and lying are the favorite pastime

(Chorus)
You've got a chance to confront the world today
Desperate romance is the curse of castaways
What good is skill if you don't make it to the dance?
Despite circumstance
You've got a chance

Common life depicted on afternoon TV
is spiked to give the miserable a vogue identity
Hate your neighbors, cheat your friends, they don't discriminate
Popularity and fame don't care if you're a reprobate

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
I'm tired of all this Shakespearean misinformation
I want to win the game

You've got the right intentions but who's got time to think?
You've got a noon appointment, you've got to hit the links
You're talking in the stratosphere, you're curled up on the floor
With such a wealth of information, why are you so poor?

You've got a chance to be relevant today
Desperate romance is the curse of castaways
What good is skill if you don't make it to the dance?
(Don't you believe what the wise men have to say)
Despite circumstance
You've got a chance
