"Party In A Forest (Where's Laura?)" as written by and Daniel Joseph/murphy Haggis....
Am I in a scene from 'Midsummer Nights Dream'?
I thought raves like these died in the 90's?
The forest is breathing along with us tonight
Upper Class thugs take middle-class drugs
And we all get lowered in size
This is not my scene, I should not be here tonight

Laura, oh oh oh oh oh
Laura, get me home tonight

Trance music bangs a comical dance of cardboard boxes and fish
We're the fairies from hell and we're all on a death wish
This is not my scene, this is killing me
I don't want to be here tonight
And the girl who can save me is well across the Pennines

Laura, oh oh oh oh oh
Laura, get me home tonight

Laura, oh oh oh oh oh
Laura, get me home tonight

    General CommentI like the imagery in this song, it's really mellow and nice. I think that it's about a guy who goes to a rave and feels really out of place because Laura isn't there, then ends up pining for Laura. I've been in simila situations when my friend (who I hook up with)isn't with me in social situations and I feel completely alienated and like nobody gets me the way she does. It's a pleasing song to listen to though and I like it because I can relate to it.

    General CommentOooh, I agree with your favorite lines!
    I think you could arguably say this is one of The Wombats' more poetic songs, such as the line about trance music and the forest breathing... It all seems very figurative and quite lovely

    :) Great song!

    General CommentThis song reminds me of me and my friends getting disgustingly drunk in the forest when we were about sixteen and on a massive self destruction kick. One of my friends would invariably try to drunk call his ex girlfriend and we always tried to stop him. Unfortunatly her name wasn't Laura but oh well.
