​One Chance

This song is by Modest Mouse and appears on the album Good News for People Who Love Bad News (2004).

We have one chance, one chance
To get everything right
We have one chance, one chance
And if we're lucky, we might
My friends, my habits, my family
They mean so much to me
I just don't think that it's right, I've seen so many ships sail in
Just to head back out again and go off sinking

I'm just a box in a cage
I'm just a box in a cage
I'm just a box, just a box in a cage
I'm just a box, just a box in a cage
I'm just a box, just a box in a cage
I'm just a box in a cage

Didn't mean to laugh, didn't know I had
Didn't know the better part of what you said
'Cause in your head you are not home
Didn't get the joke, didn't mean to poke another
Just to save myself from someone, something, something or another
Well, I walk home

I'm just a box in a cage
I'm just a box in a cage
I'm just a box, just a box in a cage
I'm just a box in a cage
I'm just a box, just a box in a cage
I'm just a box, just a box in a cage
I'm just a box in a cage

We have one chance, one chance
To get everything right
My friends, my habits, my family
They mean so much to me
I just don't think that it's right, I've seen so many ships sail in
Just to head back out again and go off sinking
