"Choices" as written by Irwin Sparkes, Martin Skarendahl, Alan Sharland, Sam Swallows and Toby Smith....
In the morning
I could take the burning sun
I could be the only warning but im not the only
So forgive me, Cause its more than I can bear
In demand I make my mind up by deciding not to care

Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices

I'm the victim, of this day and age
I've forgotten how to feel
I've forgotten how to change
So I surrender, to the apple of my eye
I surrender to the wind, I will let the wind decide

Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices

I could Break it, I could break it till it hurts
I could take Whatever words you say, Pretend I never heard
So Forgive me, shouldn't be so hard
It's they way I'm put together, so your never getting past

Cant we talk this through
Actions are not what I'm used to
Cant we talk this through
Actions are not what I'm used to

Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices
(I surrender)
Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices
(Just forgive me)
Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices

Without Friction, We Would float up into space
Maybe you could be the friction that will keep me in my place
In the morning, I could take the burning sun
I could be the only warning but I'm not the only one

    General CommentOk i could be wrong but this is MY interpritaion and is up for debate.

    In the morning
    I could take the burning sun
    I could be the only warning but I'm not the only
    So forgive me, Cause its more than I can bear
    In demand I make my mind up by deciding not to care

    *In the morning* i think hes saying he can get up and lead a regular dull life but its not when wants, he cant handle it

    I'm the victim, of this day and age
    I've forgotten how to feel
    I've forgotten how to change
    So I surrender, to the apple of my eye
    I surrender to the wind, I will let the wind decide

    We live in a time where we become so desensitised to our emotions. We are told how to lead regular dull life. I think he feels the need to throw everything in and just see what happens.

    I could break it, I could break it till it hurts
    I could take whatever words you say, pretend I never heard
    So forgive me, shouldn't be so hard
    It's they way I'm put together, so your never getting past

    Sometimes people comment on how things are, and tell you cant. But thats the way he is and he feels he has to be adimant in this views.

    Without friction, we would float up into space
    Maybe you could be the friction that will keep me in my place
    In the morning, I could take the burning sun
    I could be the only warning but I'm not the only one

    I think the friction is a routine or comitments that hold you down; Space being the oposite extreme. And he asks is this going to hold him down. Again in the morning he is saying he like that, the 'warnings', will happen again cause its who he is and wont change.

    thats what i took out it anyway

    General CommentA few things I hear differently:

    "I could be the early warning, but I'm not the only one" rather than 'only warning' and the 'one' is missed off of the end.

    "You demand I make my mind up" not 'in'

    "I could fake it, I could break it 'til it hurts" instead of break it both times

    oh and "I shouldn't be so hard"

    mostly just typos I think :)

    General CommentSeems to me that here is a guy that is debating whether to give in to his girlfriend's pressure to make a commitment (marriage?) and would rather not think about it i.e pick from the choices he's been given. He'd rather just go with the flow and see what happens. The wider aspect of the song suggests that this is a philosophy that applies to most of his life.

    Lyric Correction(these are the corrections according to the lyrics printed in the CD boolet)

    I could be the only warning but I'm not the only = I could be the early warning, but I'm not the only one

    In demand I make my mind up by deciding not to care = You demand I make my mind up, I decided not to care

    I'm the victim = I'm a victim

    I could break it, I could break it till it hurts = I could fake it, i could break it till it hurts

    I could take whatever words you say = i could take whatever words you said

    we would float up into space = we would float off into space

    (and again:) I could be the early warning


    Sorry for being so pedantic XD

    General Commenti not so sure about the actual lyrics but i think the video has a different meaning to the song

    like when irwin is drinking burning sun and he keeps messing up his lines and is all fed up and then his like im not having this lets go
    its saying about the struggles they had when writing the new ablum because they said that they had to scrap an albums worth of songs.
    also they had co writers so that could be saying that they didnt like some of the lyrics to songs and that they were just going to give it up.

    then that dude comes in saying you didnt read your contract did you? your my band now. NOW PLAY MY SONG!
    its like when they were about to give up the boss of sony was like youve got a contract and you have to stick it out to the end of it and he's like play my song which means he's telling them to get it right the first time and come up with some good material for the album.

    then irwin starts singing cautiously and the music satrts off quite simple like is this ok and the boss is nodding like yeh this is good carry on, and then the hoosiers get even more confident with the song and the music and that would represent them writing the songs and wondering will anyone like it and then people do so its a massive confidence booster so they carry on through and get it right.





    thats all ive got for the video so far, i think ive got more but my brains acheing meh
