(i had a line from this on my signature until SOMEONE disabled the sig feature on the boards. not saying any names *cough*)

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 pre-ordained
A prisoner in chains
A victim of venomous fate
Kicked in the face
You can 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!!!

(this, by the way, is by RUSH, one of my favorite bands, who also happen to be going on tour this year for their thirtieth aniversary. yay!)

(oh yes... thoughts?)

Oh, elaboration is for those who want to put EFFORT into things! Besides the options speak for themselves well enough. It's really just what you make it. I mean, think about it, all that really matters to you in the end is what you think, yes? Then again, I guess the phrase "what fools these mortals be" is another good way to analyze the situation.

Nah, floats my Shrampin Boat. And I chose what I chose because I chose that! I really can't answer any more specifically than that cause...well...I dunno myself. Well now we ain't likely to get anywhere now are we?

Aha, yet since you were speaking in a degrading tone, it denotes that you were putting it down!

Then again you could be being sarcastic!

Crap! I confused myself to a migrane again!
