You’ve got a chance to confront the world today
The start of the chorus on track one, “You’ve Got a Chance”, from The New America, the album that would eventually spell the return of Brett Gurewitz to the band.
The quote is pretty straight forward, basically, you do have a chance. It continues,
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.
Bonus quote, also from “You’ve Got a Chance”:
I’m tired of all this Shakespearean misinformation
The way I see that quote, for example could be the mainstream news, we have to seek out the truth on our own, and make sure it is heard. Hence the first quote as well.
