"Handguns And Second Chances" as written by and Garrett Michael Zablocki Michael John Glita....
To kill, the whitest looking dove
To hate, oh, everything I love
And I'm trying to pretend
Oh, in wanting life to end
That I am not another stupid
Little teenage fucking whore

And now I know
And we will see
And now I know
And we will see

To take, this handgun to my eyes
And watch, oh, my cells start to rise
The flesh now starts to break
As the bullet enters like a snake
And goes through one side of my head
And out the other one

And now I know
And we will see
And now I know
And we will see

And I'm (and I'm) too scared (too scared)
To live (to live) tonight
And I'm (and I'm) too bare (too bare)
To shed (to shed) my plight

And I'm too scared to live tonight
Too bare to shed my plight!
(Please tell me I'm not wanted)
(Please tell me I'm not wanted)

Watch the bones rip through my flesh
A catharsis of my own distress!
(Please tell me I'm not wanted)
(Please tell me I'm not)

And now I know
And we will see
And now I know
And we will see

    General Commentthis song is one of my favorites, but everysong senses fail put out was really incredible. buy they're ep. then go buy they're full length when it comes out in october. and if look out for these guys in a town near you cuz i just saw them live in hoboken, nj and they put on the best show ever. this song is realy good, i think it basicly speaks for it self as far as meanings go

    General CommentThis band is definitly one of the best bands out there. They are everything every emo-core band wishes it could be. Their lyrics ring true to every situation, and their singer has the best ways to put together lyrics. Sick. To me this song means how he's battling himself over a girl that he loves, but he knows that he can't go back to her for whatever reason. This song is basically an argument going on within him, one part saying how he loves her, the other part saying how he wants to kill himself to end the pain of being torn between love and hate for this girl. When he says tell me i'm not wanted means he wants her to push him away, cuz he can't let her go. Simply amazing. Badass band.

    General CommentI'm really surprised more people haven't posted. I know a lot of people who can relate to this song, including myself. (unfortunately)
    But anyway, i really love this song. Whenever i think about *someone* it doesn't really make me feel better, but at least SOMEONE can understand my pain.

    General Commentbuddy, their lead singer, doesnt even write the fuckin lyrics, garret their second guitarist does. buddy is pretty much pointless. but a great band, they cant even compare to thursday. not even close, you could times senses fail by 90 and it wouldnt be half as good as thursday. better believe it lol

    General Commentfor me the verse that really stuck was:

    "To take this handgun to my eyes
    And watch my cells start to rise
    The flesh now starts to break as the
    Bullet enters like a snake
    Through one side of my head
    And out the other one"

    Senses Fail and Thursday are extremely amazing bands!!!!!!!!!!
