Political Song Of The Day

This one's actually been out for a while, and it's a cover to boot, but it's excellent. A Perfect Circle's cover of Devo's Freedom Of Choice, just a visceral, kick-in-the-nuts kind of political song. Musically, it's almost Floydian, in the somber, cynical vocalisms that the English mastered back in the days of empire, with plenty of the industrial feedback squawks that many of the kids are enjoying with their commodified rock and/or roll these days.

It's hard to find a site that has a competent version of the lyrics; here's my best estimate.

We're victims of sedition on the open sea
No one ever said that life was free
Sank, swim, go down with the ship
Just use your freedom of choice

I’ll say it again in the land of the free
Use your freedom of choice
Freedom of choice

In ancient Rome there was a poem
Who followed along and watched it fall
He cast a stone
He felt secure
He felt that he would never be heard

Freedom of choice
Is what you got
Freedom of choice!

Then if you got it you don’t want it
Seems to be the rule of thumb
Don’t be tricked by what you see
You got two ways to go

I’ll say it again in the land of the free
Use your freedom of choice
Freedom of choice

Freedom of choice
Is what you've got
Freedom of choice!

In ancient Rome there was a poem
Who followed along and watched it fall
He cast a stone
He felt secure
He felt that his voice would never be heard

Freedom of choice
Is what you've got
Freedom from choice
Is what you want

Find out how your company rates by using a little known rating system!

Is your company a Scam, Dud, Scheme, Fraud Or Good Opportunity?.

95% of the money-making opportunities on the internet have been worked to death or are not suitable to be marketed through the internet. How does your company and/or opportunity rate… I’ll leave it to you to decide if your service, product and/or money making opportunity falls in this category.

Hurry you may NOT be happy with what you will find!

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both
reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
