Chances R >> The Last Mistake
(Jason Allen - 1993)


What are you gonna do?
When the whole thing goes to doubt
What are you gonna see?
When the picture starts to change
What are you gonna do?
When the voices speaking stop
What are you gonna do?
When you find you've got it wrong

Flick the switch, you gonna bring it back?
You gonna turn the key and let him out?
I don't think so...
You've made your major mistake
Won't be the last one

Who are you gonna blame?
When the evidence looks shaky
Who are you gonna call?
When the witness' thoughts turn hazy
Who are you gonna bribe?
When it's falling into the black
Who are you gonna kill?
When the chance comes once again

Flick the switch, you gonna bring it back?
You gonna turn the key and let him out?
I don't think so...
You've made your major mistake
Won't be the last one

You've made your major mistake
Won't be the last one...
You've made your major mistake
Won't be the last

Jason says...
"This is about a prisoner on death row in South Georgia. He'd had eleven last-minute reprieves while the defence lodged appeals, but they sent him to the chair and it was all over. A straight-ahead rock tune with some arty gaps. Its working title was probably 'The Lenny Kravitz One'. We played it at the final gig."
