"First Chance" as written by Keith Prior and David Gray....
Like a bird upon release
Through the atmosphere
Like a honking flock of geese
Winter drawing near
As the fabric comes unstitched
Hearts and minds and eyes bewitched
Standing watching for the smoke to clear
First chance I get I'm gone
Moses had his tablets yeah
Noah had his ark
All I got's a haystack needle
Stabbing in the dark
Anguished cries and old footfalls
Permeate these paper walls
Need some action all you get is talk
First chance I get
I'm gone I'm outta here
First chance I get
I'm gone I'm outta here
Here's one for the boys back home yeah
Here's one for your spokes
A little taste of victory
To send back to your folks
Here's one for the fireside
The grinning groom the blushing bride
Come and feast your eyes upon the hoax
First chance I get
I'm gone I'm outta here
First chance I get
I'm gone I'm outta here
Over Lake Superior
And the Arctic Sea
Through the dark interior
The stolen territory
Want it with the cream on top
One more lifetime swallowed up
He'll be back yeah just you wait and see
First chance I get
I'm gone I'm outta here
First chance I get
I'm gone I'm outta here
First chance
First chance
I'm outta here
First chance
First chance
I'm outta here
And it's a long way back
From where you are
And it's a long way back
From where you are
And it's a long way back
From where you are
It's a long
It's a long
It's a long

    General Commentafter waiting a lifetime of waiting, and waiting for the perfect chance to break free, you finally get that first glimpse of liberation...very much like david's own life story...he sure has broke out since the last decade
