"Free To Decide" as written by and Dolores Mary O'riordan....
It's not worth anything more
Than it is at all
I live as I choose
Or I will not live at all
So return to where to where you came from
Return to where you dwell
Because harassment's not my forte
But you do it bloody well
And I'm free to decide
I'm free to decide
And I'm not so suicidal after all
You must have nothing more
With your time to do
There's a war in Russia and Sarajevo too
So to hell with all your thinking
And to hell with your narrow mind
You're so distracted from the real thing
You should leave your life behind
'Cause I'm free to decide
Free to decide
And I'm not so suicidal after all
I'm free to decide.

    General CommentI love this song! For me she's just saying: "MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS! HAVE A LIFE INSTEAD OF JUDGING MINE!"

    General CommentI love this song! What it says to me is that once you realize that you have a choice, it's not so bad. I felt that way after my ex-boyfriend dumped me and I realized I was better off without him because he had some control over me before and he abused me. I felt set free after I realized how lucky I was to be without him. I had a choice and I began to live life for me and now I am happily married to my best friend.

    General CommentIthink this cd is much more optomisic compaired to the one before this
    She's just realizing why the hell did i waist my time trying to build my world on you. There's a real world out there with real problems, and yes, i am now capable of making my own desisions. ( sry i suck at spelling lol)

    General Comment"a real world out there with real problems" - so what if your spelling sucks, I can read this clearly - you have totally hit it. Like this song is optimistic cos she's found proportion. Yay for that.

    General Commentdid you see the video? Paparazzi, paparazzi, paparazzi! And they keep on photographing Dolores (this is the singer). She's in a cage and is singing. Later she has a camera and she is photographing the paparazzi now! Ironic! I think The lines
    "You must have nothing more
    with your time to do
    There's a war
    in Russia and Sarajevo, too"
    are written for paparazzi, you may not know without seeing it. It's fun to see it. I advise you to do it.

    General Commentwell delores is very smart. most of us let people decide things for us but delores depicts the perfect thing to do in the video that wag speaks of. just like the title of the song, we're free to decide.
