Freewill

"Freewill"

There are those who think that life has nothing left to chance
A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance


A planet of play things
We dance on the strings
Of powers we cannot perceive
'The stars aren't aligned
Or the gods are malign...'
Blame is better to give than receive

[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 clear
I will choose freewill

There are those who think
That they were dealt a losing hand
The cards were stacked against them
They weren't born in Lotusland

All preordained
A prisoner in chains
A victim of venomous fate
Kicked in the face
You can't pray for a place
In heaven's unearthly estate

[Chorus]

Each of us
A cell of awareness
Imperfect and incomplete
Genetic blends
With uncertain ends
On a fortune hunt that's far too fleet

[Chorus]


I heard this song on the way home. I haven't heard it in a really, really long time. This song was one that was part of the pivot point that lead to my transformation. Everyone who has ever changed their life has a pivot point. It's the one point in time where they can point to and say, that's where the change began. This song was part of that. I knew the song, I've known it for years. But one day I was at a really low point, really low, when this came on the radio. I've always liked it so I turned it up and started singing. Then it hit me. The 2nd line of the chorus; if you chose not to decide you still have made a choice. That line resonated with me. It was literally one of those moments where I was sitting with my mouth hanging open going, 'of course.'

Anyway, I heard it tonight and started thinking back and thought I'd share it. I'm off to find it on iTunes so I can add it to my running songs.
