Freewill also meant a lot to me growing up. Being spirituly inclined in my formative years, this song propelled me into questioning everything put before me and not taking stock answers from anyone, especially clergy. There is more to life than we can measure or perceive and this song pointed the way for me to begin my own spiritual exploration.
I have to confess that the lyrics to "Freewill" are sort of a mystery to me.(the music is awsome)..even if it is thought provoking in many respects. "I will choose Freewill" does not make sense to me. Freewill is something that we have already. How can I choose something I already have. It is sang with such triumph, but seems like no triumph at all. Everyone chooses freewill everyday. Even if you devoutly subscribe to moral codes , or principles, you can freely reject them at any moment, and that is because you have a freewill..you are never locked in once you subscribe. IF sneering lines like "A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance" and "you can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice" are sneering at Jesus's or Moses's teachings...well, I just cant fathom their teachings as being summarized as a "host of holy horrors"...
I will choose goodwill myself...because it is good. Ill-will is bad , and freewill can choose either or neither. Goodwill is the hardest , and gravity goes with illwill. Freewill with out a fight towards good , slouches toward gravity. hmmm..i can tell that i am typing too late at night

That was my take on the song.

"and it echoes with the sound of wesleys, yeah wesleys, ohhh wesleys!!!"
Highlight of my high school days, isn't that sad!
