a shot at redemption (English) — To have the chance, the opportunity, to make things right so that others will see that your motivations, your intentions are in good faith and for everyone's benefit. A person who is selfish or has bad intentions and ways may one day come to realize that there is a need for change. "I look into myself and do like what I see, I need a shot at redemption (so things will be better)."

"a shot at redemption" in lyrics

Why am I soft in the middle?
The rest of my life is so hard
I need a photo-opportunity
I want a shot at redemption
Don't want to end up a cartoon
In a cartoon graveyard

Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al

relentless - the onslaught of misunderstanding
descending into a unified chaos

One more chance for a shot at redemption
lost within, can we summon the might
