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 playthings
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 

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 free will 

There are those who think that 
They've been dealt a losing hand
The cards were stacked against them
They weren't born in Lotus-Land 

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 

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 free will 

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

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 free will
