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.



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.

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.
