Mudvayne - Choices Lyrics




Leaders are guilty of nothing
They're perfectly insane
But if they'd point the finger at themselves
Who would be left to blame

Lead into grace
Lead to corruption
Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo
A truth or lie has to be spoken
Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo
King or con has to be chosen
Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo
Way of life complete or broken...broken

Choices
No more...choices
No more...choices
No more...choices

Leaders are guilty of nothing
They're perfectly insane
But if they'd point the finger at themselves
Who would be left to blame

Follow truth or stutter through a lie
Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo
Will to push or give up and fall behind
Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo
Live with peace or nurture your tragic life
Ini-Mini-Miny-Mo
Bite the bullet or swallow it whole

Leaders are guilty of nothing
They're perfectly insane
But if they'd point the finger at themselves
Who would be left to blame
Point the finger at yourself

There's no choice
Anymore anyway...

We don't have a choice
Anymore anyway
We don't have a voice
Anymore Anyway

There's no choice in freedom
There's no voice in freedom
We don't have a choice
Anymore anyway
We don't have a voice
Anymore anyway
There's no choice in freedom
There's no voice in freedom

Leaders are guilty of nothing
They're perfectly insane
But if they'd point the finger at themselves
Who would be left to blame

They're lost system of destruction
Flush all hope down the drain
But if they'd point the finger at themselves
Who is left to blame
Who is left to blame

We don't have a choice
Anymore anyway
We don't have a voice
Anymore anyway
There's no choice in freedom
There's no voice in freedom
We don't have a choice
Anymore anyway
We don't have a voice
Anymore anyway

There's no choice in freedom
There's no voice in freedom
We don't have a choice
Anymore anyway
We don't have a voice
Anymore anyway

We don't have a reason
Anymore anyway
We don't have control
Anymore anyway
We don't have opinions
Anymore anyway

There's no choice in freedom
There's no voice in freedom

Freedom, buy in
Freedom, sell out
Freedom, betray
Freedom, lay down
Freedom, corrupt
Freedom, opinion
Freedom, give up
Freedom, give in

  21. Louis Hernandez

    True freedom is living in the middle of no where, nobody around but the animals and nature. I wish I was born a last Alaskan

  22. Cory Danrich

    Ryan infuses jazz/fusion and slap bass lines with metal.I don’t know any bassist with that signature style and skill yet.He almost favors Jaco Pastorius.

    Robert Amatto

    Check out Between the Buried and Me and Cynic for other awesome jazz/metal bassists!
    Totally agree though, Ryan was a visionary bassist!

    Daron Malakian

    @Robert Amatto Ryan is a prodigy, sadly he isnt in a big band now

  23. Kanad Roy

    master piece!

  24. The Universe

    my brother bought this album when we were teenagers around 14 yrs old. Everyday we would play this but never really listen to the lyrics. Now that I came back to it at 29 yrs old ,WTF this song is deep. We will defeat the negative system that's trying to control us. We will not let it happen!!!

  25. Alex Willows

    This song makes me want to piss in a light socket till my dick explodes

  26. Jep Cartusch

    I hear this evereday in the prison, this give me power

    Christopher Sagud

    are you out of jail now bro? whahaha just curious

    Noriaki Kakyoin

    @Christopher Sagud The saga continues! Is he out of jail? Is he dead? We may never know

    Brandon Triplett

    I blasted this every day in prison with my super 3 c.o.s hella pissed 😤

    Brandon Triplett

    Dio Brando not dead

  27. Zachary Werner

    You know, I don't know about anybody else, but I'm kind of saddened that this one isn't one of their more popular songs, especially in this age. Plus that intro is amazing.

    İlker Rem

    Zachary Werner This is their Magnum Opus!

    Zachary Werner

    İlker Rem or at least should be!

    Matt Petersen

    Americunts are braindead as it was planned to be from the start by their overlords

    PuppetMasterTHC

    Fuckin limeys got your asses kicked.. still whining? How's it feel over there In Europe getting over run by the muslims. Fuck yourself pussy

  28. Matteo De Lucenti

    Love this song.. <3

  29. Michael Dean Phillis

    Any one catch that bass line!? Martini the fucking man!

    Aaron 102

    so beautiful, the slides mixed with staccato

    Michael Dean Phillis

    I think they when they recorded this album they were in a state of synchronicity, all those stacattos and slides mix so well between Matt and Ryan then the drums accent those changes so crisp. overall the album is a classic gem

    Aaron 102

    Michael Dean Phillis yep, shame they're not together anymore :( all of them are so god damn underrated

  30. kokoy chacorta

    best song of album

  31. The Doom

    I like how everyone in the comments hated on this album when it came out saying that LD50 was better, but now that Mudvayne is gone they're sucking this album's balls. Probably the later ones too.

    Tyson Doyon

    The Doom this is my favorite album same with my dad

  32. Nicholas Modd

    Still relevant in 2016.

    "We don't have a choice

    There's no choice in freedom
    There's no voice in freedom

    Rutilant Racer

    Well Mr President proves that mentality no longer exists

    Jesguin

    Still relevant today

  33. Emiliano Dean

    Drinking pure Vodka and Listening to Mudvayne while becoming a Prince is my new Passion

  34. UKSeed Bank

    on a wide screen phone. press his right leg ;》

    Generic Internetter

    Did nothing

  35. Ed Dy

    It is everyones individual fault. For Everything , Who elected the leaders, if he points the finger at himself... Society will not be satisfied, always blaming others.. To the point We humans can't think for ourselves anymore as indiviuals. Culture runs this World now, you go to Africa,Mexico you will see how American culture has been slipped into a conscience mind. It eases our minds to blame others, what happens if we blame ourselves.. Stress, Panic, Chaos. Mudvayne -Prod. We humans were not desighned to fall.. We were built to follow Religion, Follow the First bible Textbooks from original form and You're life wouldn't be Chaotic.. We would be in Unity , neighbor falls you pick him up..We would not know how to do the wrong , you breath naturally thats how Good in us would be. Doing the right thing is not hard its just not as fun as doing the wrong thing .. We are stuck from our ancestors Decisions, we can not go back. We have a choice now , pick right from wrong before it is Completley taken away. Im not talking about a higher anarchy stripping it from you. The Greatest Enemy in you're life is Youreself. Lift you're spirits and combat negative thoughts

  36. Ricky Wilcox

    This song was designed to open your eyes. there is a storm brewing within our own country, a fight between good and evil. If we are to survive this, we must fight back. There is no choice anymore anyway. There is no choice in "freedom"

    Final Fantasy

    Ricky Wilcox this song should be WAYYY more popular than it is.

    Britton Thompson

    Perhaps, but the reality is that songs with this message have a diminished value nowadays because it's just another to be added to the stack of songs/books/TV shows/movies with the same sentiment being expressed. These 'call to arms' messages don't inspire action anymore since it's overuse has short circuited it's ability to make an impact on people. It's hard to get people to rally to your cause when everyone with a microphone or camera in front of their face is saying this exact same thing everyday.

    Just look at the current state of news & politics these days. On a weekly basis for the past 2 years the media has been telling us Donald Trump has just done something else new that's the end of the world. America was supposed to give it's wealth & resources away to Russia because Trump is a puppet controlled by Vladimir Putin; the stock market was supposed to crash and create a 2nd Great Depression the day Trump was sworn into office; we were all supposed to die in a nuclear holocaust now that he has the nuclear launch codes; ISIS was supposed to grow in numbers and increase their attacks on the US mainland to avenge the travel ban on Muslims from rogue Islamic nations; the internet was supposed to fall apart and die because of net neutrality; etc.

    The problem with all of this is that when you actually look up and realize, "Hey, the world's not ending after all. In fact, if I'm being honest, I, along with everyone else I know, is actually doing better today than we were 5 years ago", it no longer elicits the same reaction within people since everyone has been hyperventilating & running around with their hair on fire warning us about something that never comes to pass.

    Now, even if Donald Trump were to actually do something that's very harmful to us we'd never even know about it since the people telling us about it have repeatedly proven how dishonest, inaccurate, and malicious they are, and that trusting them would be foolhardy.

    When everything is sensational, nothing is sensational.

  37. Ken D. Webber

    YES! Fits in with tonight's episode of The Walking Dead and Negan's appearance.

    madge williams

    Just the other day I was thinking this would be a great song for Negan lol

  38. Mudy MAXY

    There's no fucking choices in the fake freedom that humans created for the sake of the riches and for the death of the poors!!

  39. ayeilikecroissants

    this reminds me of what my country(america) is coming to. soon there will be no freedom and there will be tons of regulations on what we can and cant do.

    shane mack

    +Cesar Galvan you know what he meant.

    shane mack

    the USA is often called America for short; that is common knowledge; he isn't writing a thesis.

  47. Jonathan Ross

    Well this song sure was ahead of its time, wasn't it...

    Bobsmithgeorgette

    You are very correct. Expect this comment after 5 years?

    PuppetMasterTHC

    Tyson Doyon

    M Hale i have no fucking clue bro maybye dig scares em off😂

    plane earth query

    That's gotta be it. It's like cognitive dissonance from their nu metal image. If slipknot and mushroomhead didnt dress up they'd have been compared to kiss and dismissed. "Contempt before investigation is the height of ignorance."

    Christopher Sagud

    M Hale doesnt matter MUDVAYNE LONG LIVE
