Are you ready to take a chance and risk it all?
It's do or die, fight or flight.
Do you want to feel alive? (feel alive)
So would you play a game of Russian Roulette to save your life?
Are you in? Are you in? Or will you flee to safety,
And wonder what could have been?

Don't be afraid, don't ever be afraid
Oh, oh, you've been hiding,
You've been hiding in the shadows
When you're afraid, when you're afraid, take a chance
Don't let it weigh you down, you gotta get out of there
When you're afraid, when you're afraid, take a chance
Don't let it weigh you down, you gotta get out

You're trapped in a cave, confined
Falling back to the comfort of your world
The last time you walked away from this,
You were looking back to see what you missed

When you're afraid, when you're afraid, take a chance
Don't let it weigh you down, you gotta get out of there
When you're afraid, when you're afraid, take a chance
Don't let it weigh you down, you gotta get out

Take a chance, take a breath,
Take a shot with a gun to your head
Take a chance, take a breath,
Take a shot knock the gun to your head
Knock gun to your heard

When you're afraid, when you're afraid, take a chance
Don't let it weigh you down, you gotta get out of there
When you're afraid, when you're afraid, take a chance
Don't let it weigh you down, you gotta get out
Stop hiding in the shadows

    He is talking about stepping outside of your comfort zone, your safety bubble, your cave. You will never be able to experience life of you don't take a chance. He is referring to when he had to leave his hometown in cali to meet the band in michigan. It's definitely scary moving to a city where you know nothing and no one but he took the chance and look where it got him.
