"Control Freak" as written by and Saul Williams....
I know that you've woken up and found yourself within a world a questions, where the answers come and go. And I know you don't want sit around and hear no asinine suggestions when the truth just can't be told. But if I may, I got a thing or two to say. Although the answers are not clear, there's not a thing that you should fear, because the answers to it all whether things rise or when they fall, you'll find the truth remains the same and that truth is that God is change. Hey you! You can talk about talk about talk about it, but you can't control your destiny. I think that God is testing me. Hey you! You can talk about it talk about it talk about it, but you can't control your destiny. You just might fail successfully. I'm alone. And I thought God created you for me. How could it be that it can't be? So alone. And I don't know what to do with myself. And I don't know what I'm gonna do. Hey you! I thought that you were my destiny. I thought we were meant to be. Don't I know what's best for me? Hey you! I thought you were my destiny. Girl, I thought were meant to be. Can't I choose what's best for me? Hey you! You can talk about talk about talk about it, but you can't control your destiny. I think that God is testing me. Hey you! You can talk about it talk about it talk about it, but you can't control your destiny. You just might fail successfully. You can't control your destiny. You can't control your destiny. You can't control.

    General CommentI think this song is pretty self-explanatory. If God is change, then being a control freak moves you farther away from God into "sin" (not in a literal sense, but I think Saul is saying that refusing to "change/evolve/adapt" is like writing your own death sentence, we must worship change, etc.. in order to live and because that is what allows us to continue living.). It's flux theory. It's the oxymoronic absolute truth that "truth changes." You can't control your destiny because things are always changing and you cannot help but follow these changes, another reason why God is change. No matter what you "do" you are fulfilling your destiny, whether it's voluntary or not, intentional or accidental, failing or succeeding, because in truth you have no destiny, except the one you make for yourself. It's ironic and somewhat contradictory I know, but I think that's the point. Things happen and you give these events meaning by calling them "part of your destiny" and you invent this imaginary role that you are to play based upon what happens in your life and how it effects you, how you let it effect you.
