All the miles, and all the trials, and cities made of gold
But there's a free way, a free way... a free way to carry you home.

Tell the world, the young and old...
& every boy and girl
That there's a free way... a free way... a free way to carry you home.

OH WHAT A FEELING!
OH WHAT A FEEDING!
KNOW FROM WHAT YOU'VE LEARNED...
IT CAME FROM AFRICA!

OH WHAT A FEELING!
OH WHAT A FEEDING!
KNOW THE CHOSEN ONES...
THEY COME FROM EVERYWHERE,
THEY COME FROM EVERYWHERE,
THEY COME FROM EVERYWHERE!!!

    My InterpretationI think this song is about releasing yourself from the appendages of materialism.
    He reminds us in a mantra that we can free ourselves from these
    modern day entrapment's and embrace a return to a more simple way of life, a return to our primeval existence where we weren't governed by superficial desires but to live with what we have and be grateful for it.

    General Commenti think...
    its about a guy, walking from the jungle out on the plains of africa
    theres no sign of human activity anywhere, he walks and looks. theres an old dirt trail and heads west towards the setting sun. he approaches a village with people in traditional garb, they welcome him as he walks through

    rum-deeledum-deeleylayyy eaum, set it up and push me off

    he walks on in the night, and comes to a hilltop. and he surveys a city from the hill just on the outskirts. he doesnt go in. he returns to the jungle.
