Another Shot

Songfacts®:

  • Lostprophets lead vocalist Ian Watkins explained the song's meaning to Kerrang!: "This is about wanting another chance with someone, but you know it's not the best thing for them. So there's that battle of conscience - can you be the bigger person and let them go, or will you be selfish because you want them to stay? It feels like something from (Linkin Park's) Hybrid Theory."
  • Watkins told NME: "This was the first song we finished in these sessions. It's only one-track vocals, no harmonies or anything. I think we only did the song like three times and that was it, which was pretty crazy and was new for me. We didn't really expect that – just went in, sang the song three times and that was it. We didn't really think much of it, then we listened to it and it had a cool vibe about it."
