"God's Dice" as written by and Jeff Ament....
It's out of my hands, making all hands meet
Stumble as it's crumbling out of reach
It's in the cards of destiny
Your sanity in tow
Designate my luck
Resignate

This power has no roots to guide, no role
Trust me, rusted minds refuse to go
Unwillingness, it's meaningless
To walk away in vain
Designate my will
Designate my will
Resignate

My will is crashing, synapses flashing slow
Days like frame by frame, where do they go'
Yeah, why fight' forget it
Can't I spend it after I go'

Roll them high
Throw them again
All Gods' dice

Monkey driven, call this living, ha ha ha
Too much thought, it's overwrought, a hole
Minding yours, what's mine, not yours
Will finish us off
Designate my life
Designate a view
Designate my will, my will, my will, I will
Resignate my god

    General CommentI think this song is about the confusion between denominations of religion. It's about feeling trapped in a pre-ordination mindset, and how everyone has free will over their own lives. Nothing is set in stone, and we should not live by the hand of God's dice. That's what the song says to me, at least.

    General Comment"God's Dice" I think refers to the chance that's involved when each of us were created. Synapsis is the process where crossing over of the genes occurs, which is a big part of the variety in you, and what traits you aquire. I guess it's about how it's just chance that you turn out the way you do, and the way the people important to you turn out.

    General CommentI'd say this song is about non man made tragedies like natural disasters and so on, which are gods decisions/dice and not ours. It's spoken from someone who has been affected by one of these things.

    General CommentThis song's name's apostrophe placement is important.
    It's actually Gods' Dice.
    Not God's Dice.
