Freedom Of Choice Lyrics - A Perfect Circle

Review The Song (1)



We're victims of sedition on an open sea
No one ever said that life was free
Sink, swim, go down with the ship
Just use your freedom of choice

I’ll say it again in the land of the free
Use your freedom of choice
Freedom of choice

In ancient Rome there was a pawn
Who followed along and watched it fall
He cast a stone
He felt secure
He felt that he would never be heard

Freedom of choice
Is what you got
Freedom of choice!

You've been given a voice- you don't want it
sponsored links
It seems to be the rule of thumb
Don’t be tricked by what you see
You've got two ways to go

I’ll say it again in the land of the free
Use your freedom of choice
Freedom of choice

Freedom of choice
Is what you've got
Freedom of choice!

In ancient Rome
There was a pawn
Who followed along
and watched it fall
He cast a stone
He felt secure
He felt that his voice would never be heard

Freedom of choice
Is what you've got
Freedom from choice
Is what you want

A "Perfect" Remake | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/2/2006

"A Perfect Circle" has beautifully reworked/remastered this classic Mark Mothersbaugh hit! The entire album "eMOTIVe" retools classic seventies and eighties "pop" hits with a dystopian feel ... and this ex-Devo tune is not immune to the nihilistic overtones that create a definite sense of unease. The song (much like their remake of Lennon's "Imagine") has a haunting feel and resonates in the listener's mind long after the final note. Although I'm not certain if the band or Mothersbaugh rewrote the body of the song, the shift from Aesop's fable of the dog that sees his reflection (in the original) to a voiceless, powerless peasant trying to be heard perfectly exemplifies the connecting theme of the album -- that we are all merely formless pawns and have no control over our own societies and lives.
