Lyrics

Choose
Between hungry wolves
Between lies and truth
Only one of two will be strong and rule

Choose
Between hungry wolves
Between light and gloom
Only one of two has to starve and lose

Choose to take that crucial leap of faith
Abandon fear and ease all your pain
(Our fixation)
Face your chaos, feed the enemy
An appetite for your harmony
(Our vibration)

Darkness drags you down
(Step in the light)
Wisdom feeds the righteous mind
As a change is one choice away

Freedom, true freedom
To know where to seek
Is to see we’re the gateway to our mystery
Our freedom
All we ever need is freedom
The wisdom we gain will abate all the pain so we can rise
To greater heights

We can try to cover up our flaws
In time we’ll have to deal with its cause
(Our damnation)
Clear your chaos, end the agony
Restore your balance and you’ll be free
(Our salvation)

Sadness drags you down
(Retrieve your spark)
Wisdom feeds the seeking mind
As a change is one choice away

Freedom, true freedom
To know where to seek
Is to see we’re the gateway to our mystery
Our freedom
All we ever need is freedom
The wisdom we gain will abate all the pain so we can rise
To greater heights

Choose
Between hungry wolves
Between lies and truth
Only one of whom will strive onward
One of these two will lose

Follow reason
Wisdom leads to freedom

All left behind
With two sides that won’t align
In a world out of its mind
You can find the truth in you

Rise
The battle will unfold before our eyes
This war defines who we are
Be sure to not become what we despise

Freedom, true freedom
To know where to seek
Is to see we’re the gateway to our mystery
Our freedom
All we ever have is freedom
The choices we make will define our own fate so we can rise
To greater heights

Fight
The righteous mind survives

Choose
Between hungry wolves
Between light and gloom
Only one of two will be strong and rule

Rule
Lose
Wolves
Choose

Trivia

“This song is based on an old story of a fight between two wolves. A wise Cherokee is discussing life with his grandson : He tells the boy‚ “There is a fight going on inside of me between two wolves. One wolf is evil, he embodies anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other wolf is good, joyful, peaceful, and embodies love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. We all have the same fight going on inside of us and the outcome of this battle will reflect on the outer world.” The boy gets curious and asks his grandfather which wolf will win ? The old Cherokee simply answers “The one you feed the most”. What we want to be and what we want to reflect on the world around us depends on which wolf we feed and also the degree of control we have over our inner wolves. Will we manage to control them or will they control us ?” – Mark Jansen
