Song of the Wolf

Song of the Wolf

Here...
In the wilderness
I've learned
To survive
It's no real hardship
To stay
Alive

I will not judge myself
As others judge me
I will not see myself
As others see me
I am my own
I have everything
I need


Alone...
I hunt my prey
When I find food
I feast
I sing to myself
Of the joyful
Beast

I will not judge myself
As others judge me
I will not see myself
As others see me
I am my own
I have everything
I need


I love...
The barren wastes
From afar
You hear me cry
Only the birds
And the insects
Know why

I will not judge myself
As others judge me
I will not see myself
As others see me
I am my own
I have everything
I need


Gone...
The far horizon
Recedes as I advance
Winds blow away
Every trace
Of my dance

I will not judge myself
As others judge me
I will not see myself
As others see me
I am my own
I have everything
I need
