I tire of sheepish; admire the wolf.
I don't care if it's lonely,
I must become so wholly wolvish; naturally free.
Wolvish; eerily calm in lunacy.

The feelings I get when I witness injustice
Feel the same as when viewing a mountain range.
And when questioning how man forms mal-intent
I wonder "Might refuge exist for estranged?"

I tire of sheepish; admire the wolf.
I don't care if it's lonely,
I must become so wholly wolvish; naturally free.
Wolvish; eerily calm in lunacy.

I must go

Off alone in wild
Where I just might escape my restraints.

But what of the other?
Could I endure the cold thought of
Never seeing her 'gain?
Though there is madness here,
She is least one shining brilliance
To challenge the splendour of that glorious mountain range.
A care so tender it gets me rethinking
My hopeless appraisals of our society.

Oh, could I endure a life lived without her, in the wild?

(Oh, could you be wolvish?
Oh, could you become wholly the wolvish?)

Would it be selfish,
Or best for us all,
If I become so
Wholly the wolvish one?

    My InterpretationWolfish is about a person battling their desire that would cut themselves from a environment, society, or community that they already deem unjust.

    "I tire of sheepish; admire the wolf.
    I don't care if it's lonely,
    I must become so wholly wolvish; naturally free.
    Wolvish; eerily calm in lunacy."

    The person is tired of following what is expected of him. Rather than be a sheep, he would rather be like a wolf; vicious and desire-driven. This would allow him to be free, but the people (being sheepish) will try to push him away for appearing to be crazy. However, this person does not seem to care, and would in fact find it more peaceful.

    "The feelings I get when I witness injustice
    Feel the same as when viewing a mountain range.
    And when questioning how man forms mal-intent
    I wonder 'Might refuge exist for estranged?'"

    This verse simply express how the person views society. When they see some they might deem unjust or hurtful, the person may seek a wild, but cut-off refuge from those who practice mal-intent. The mountain range is a symbol of this place - beautiful and wild; the perfect place for a wolf.

    "I must go off alone in wild
    Where I just might escape my restraints."

    Once again, the person is overcome with desire to run away into the unknown and escape the restraints of society.

    "But what of the other?
    Could I endure the cold thought of
    Never seeing her 'gain?
    Though there is madness here,
    She is least one shining brilliance
    To challenge the splendour of that glorious mountain range.
    A care so tender it gets me rethinking
    My hopeless appraisals of our society.
    Oh, could I endure a life lived without her, in the wild?"

    The person reflects on someone they care about, and starts to debate whether or not he should commit to his ambitions to become wolvish. This woman is dear to them, and is the person who grounds them to the society that they feel estranged from.

    "Would it be selfish,
    Or best for us all,
    If I become so
    Wholly the wolvish one?"

    The person is debating if it is truly bad to run away from their society. His own desires may be dragged down by society, but maybe the society is dragged down by his desires as well. Lying to himself may also be hurting others. The question it is asking us is as follows: Is it sometimes better for us to be detested for who we are? Or should we conform to an image in a negative fashion?
