"Second Chance For Max Headroom" as written by and Deryck Jason Whibley....
It's not enough you passed it for a while,
You can't afford the amass of denial.
Don't explain, you can't arcane it too.
Your lies surpassed your doubt.

Don't do something you'll regret

It's not enough you passed it for a while,
The time you take,
Your minds mistake,
Time worth throwing all away.

It's not enough attention,
Though you're too proud to mention,
I can't go on pretending,
That it's still the same

    My InterpretationNo strong leads as to what this song is about... The max headroom thing is a hint but haven't tied it in yet.

    Seems like it's about a girl or a friend who is making really bad choices and playing ignorant about them.

    The last part of the song he's giving up on the person somewhat.

    --So maybe the title (Second Chance for Max Headroom) parallels to Max Headroom getting a second chance but failing (I'm not sure how popular he was when he re-emerged)... but maybe this person got a second chance and just flat out blew it.

    The punky part might be the intermission between the first and second chances.

    Just some wild, frantic guesses/suggestions.
