"Wild Wood" as written by and Paul John Weller....
High tide, mid afternoon
People fly by, in the traffic's boom
Knowing, just where you're blowing
Getting to where you should be going

Don't let them get you down
Making you feel quilty about
Golden rain, will bring you riches
All the good things you deserve and now

Climbing, forever trying
Find your way out of the wild, wild wood
Now there's no justice
Only yourself that you can trust in

And I said high tide, mid afternoon, whoa
People fly by, in the traffic's boom
Knowing, just where you're blowing
Getting to where you should be going

Day by day your world fades away
Waiting to feel all the dreams that say
Golden rain will bring you riches
All the good things you deserve now

And I say, climbing, forever trying
You're find you way out of the wild, wild wood
Said you're gonna find you way out of the wild, wild wood
Wild wild wood

    General CommentI get the feeling this song is about living in London (or generically about any big city). High tide mid afternoon is rush hour.

    People go to work in the city to make money, and everyone makes them feel guilty because of the money they earn and the big companies they work for - "Don't let them get you down
    Making you feel guilty about
    Golden rain bring you riches
    All the good things - you deserve now"

    But in the end people only work in the city until they've got enough money to move somewhere calm, away from the Wild Wood - "Day by day your world fades away
    Waiting to feel - all the dreams that say
    Golden rain will bring you riches
    All the good things - you deserve now - and I say
    Climbing forever trying
    Find your way out - of the wild wild wood"

    Every day, heading home, they think about how they want to get out of the city for good eventually.
