There are those who think that

Life is nothing left to chance

A host of holy horrors to direct 

our anguish at.

 

A planet of playthings

We dance on the strings

of powers we cannot perceive

 

The stars all colide

All the gods are aligned

things better to give than recieve.

 

[Chorus]

You can choose a ready guide

in some celestial voice.

If you choose not to decide

you still have made a choice!


You can choose from phantom fears

and kindness that can kill.

I will choose a path that's real!

I will choose FREE WILL!

[end chorus]

 

There are those who think that

they've been dealt a losing hand.

The cards were stacked against them!

They were born in Lotus Land!

 

All through your day,

A prisoner in chains!

A victim of venomous fate!

 

Kicked in the face!

You can pray for a place,

In Heaven's unearthly estate.

 

[Chorus]

Also check out BU2B ("Brought Up to Believe") which is one of their most recent songs. On their last tour, they played Free Will, Faithless, and BU2B in a row. Roll the Bones also has some similar themes.

 

Listening to their Vapor Trails album right now... awesome music!

I have come to wonder if at least one of the members of Rush is an atheist.
