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 CommentIt could be as simple as getting out of town, as ssome of the lyrics resonate wiht me getting out of tiown to seem my girlfriend, who lives in the country, which I always find to be a start contrast to my usual, noisier urban setting.

    But can be about just being trapped in the daily grind too and losing your individuality.
