"Choices" as written by Chad L. Gray, Matthew Mcdonough, Greg Tribbett and Ryan Martinie....
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

    General CommentThis song is one of my favourite, i really like it. i think it's his thoughts on the social and political situation right now in america, about how both the laws and society dont let you choose what you want to do. you cant smoke pot you shouldnt even smoke cigarettes you cant do anything without being judged by either the law or society in some way. eni meni mieni moe i think represents how society choses groups to be picked on, it could be about how the government makes laws, how the president is chosen, a number of things. so yeah.

    the great things about bands like mudvayne is that you have the ability to interpret the song any way you like. the way i like to think of it is far from what i believe the actual meaning is, but that's what music is about. how you interpret it and how it makes you feel.

    General Commentyo this is the best song of the album man! you ain'T a real mudvayne fan if you can't consider the complexity of this song. Anywayz its about politics (first mudvayne politic song) and how theyre disappointed of theyre goverment and world politic situation. IT's never the fault of nobody so who is the bad one that we have o blame (thats pretty this the meaning of the song. Anyminymo is like the way the president is selected.

    General Commentforgot to say, it always says that we dont have a real decisional power with this supposed democraty. So we let the big shots control all the nation and decisisons of it.

    General Commentthis song, to me, is talking about social corruption. the fact that we have basically nothing left to believe and so we'll take anything thats given to us, in this case, the lies of presidents.
    ini mini miny mo represents the way that presidents will take anyone that choses to believe and will lie to make all believe. "if they point the finger at themselves, who would be left to blame" basically says that they'll lie to get anything.

    General CommentPeople are stupid, they will believe something because they want it to be true, or the fear that it is true.

    General CommentThis song is about the government and freedom of speech. That's why they have the "eeni meeni miney mo" part (or how ever you spell it). This song is very catchy, I love it.

    General CommentI love the song, but who thought of putting that ini mini miny mo thing in it?? Maybe the worst decision ever lol. The rest of the song is amazing, especially the end.

    General CommentI'm sorry, I thought Silenced was similar to this. How can this be the first song about politics?

    General Comment'Silenced' was alil bit similar to this. Although it was about Censorship, not Politics.

    "Sticker this
    Censor this
    Ban this
    We've got something to say!
    Release this
    Condemn this
    Damn this
    We'll be heard anyway!
    Middle finger is the flag that i wave when I'm silenced!"
