"Out of the Wilderness" as written by and Matthew Aveiro Jacquire Brown King....
The crown on my head is heavy on me
They wouldn't know it
'Cause they don't wanna see

The skin on my face is turning bright pink
As I walk by the girl's choir whispering

The street that I walk welcomes my feet
With cryptic graffiti greetings to read
The smile on my mouth, it came dirt cheap
I bought it second hand

I will always walk tall
Taller than the clouds
When the rain starts to fall
I come out of the wilderness
To lay by the waterfall

The wires to my head
When I press play
Who's this new prophet
Has she got something to say?
The thoughts in my brain are backfiring
I'm a picture perfect passenger

I will always walk tall
I hold my loneliness up like a medicine ball
I come out of the wilderness to lay by the waterfall
Lighten my load

You expect the worst
You always get your way
These big buildings these little girls
Are giving me a little shade

    Song MeaningMy favourite song from the new album.
    To me this song is all about self-confidence. With references to walking with your head down and feeling as though others are talking/whispering about you and then the loneliness and nervousness of walking deserted, graffitied streets in your own world of music.
    The chorus is all about wanting to change and desperately wanting to be able to keep your head held high no matter what, hence being able to deal with your troubles, ie the wilderness, so you can reach peace and contempt in your own way, ie reaching you goals - the waterfall.

    Very powerful and uplifting song.

    My OpinionI absolutely love this song off their new album, Mine Is Yours. I think some people are already overlooking it and for now focusing on the more popular songs off the album. To me, this song speaks volumes of the CWK. It includes the perfect balance of their new feel mixed with a little of their old "rawness". It's especially apparent to me at the very end of the song where that glorious old CWK guitar riff comes in. If you haven't listened to it yet, pop it on already!
