Choice? Lyrics

Choice

 

When you talk about choice

 

As if it's something we were born with

This choice is for some

But not for everyone

The way you talk about money

 

Like it's the currency of faith

 

Then cast aside

 

Those who never make the grade

In the back of my mind

 

There's a home for everyone

But in the cold light of day

 

It's a grim reality

You talk about freedom

 

But I just don't understand

 

The castle that you've built

Is made out of sand

And the goods you sell

 

Are the ones we already own

And the lies you tell

 

To build your sacred home

It's a common misconception

 

They call it single-minded strength

 

I say it's too easy

 

To divide the 'us' from 'them'

Let's talk about it

 

Well there's no choice at all people

 

No no no no no

 

Well there's no choice at all

 

Let's talk about hate

 

'Cause it's something that you thrive on

Conquer and divide

Get on your bike and ride

Is it such a disease

 

It's something we all suffer from

You think it's heaven-sent

 

But it don't pay the rent

The way you talk about love

 

Like it's something you invented

 

But the only love you know

 

Is the one that makes the dough

With the 28 clauses

 

And your market forces

 

You only benefit

But you showing a prophet baby

 

It's no choice at all yeah

 

Well there's no choice at all

 

No no no no no choice

 

Ooh

Mmm-mm-mm

 

The way you talk about it to me

 

Oh

 

No choice no choice

No choice no choice

No choice

The way you say it to me now people

 

It's no choice at all

 

It's no choice at all

 

It's no choice at all

 

You got it you got it

 

Whoo

It's no choice at all

It's no choice at all

 

It's no choice at all

 

Well there's no choice at all

 

No no no no choice

 

Well that's no choice at all

 

Shoo-di-doo-doo-doo

 

Di-doo-doo-doo yeah

 

Di-doo doo-doo oh yeah
