lyrics

All I want is a space to go wild
From jungle to glacier go wild
Every lover of nature go wild
Don’t foul no wild locales, no doubt

Go wild! I wanna make ya go wild
It’s somewhat innate to go wild
Come unchained and go wild
No crowds, no loud smoked clouds no doubt

Go wild!
In the shade of a pair of arbutus
Trees in beautiful BC, I hear the music
It’s the breeze and the rustle of leaves, it’s therapeutic
Wilderness is there to take care of us if we care to use it
I’m just a feral human swimmin’ with the barracudas
Suckin’ the juice of life straight from maracuyas
I’m about as buoyant as an air balloon is
Flyin’ like a bunch of young spider parachuters
Wild! Accept no substitutes
Intact instead of crushed under a bunch of boots
Wild! On the banks of an estuary
Sunset comes and I call it a sanctuary
Wild! Facin’ nature’s indifference
A part of the food chain, embrace insignificance
Wild! Just like a predator finds prey
I’m just a primate seekin’ a wild space

All I want is a place to go
Jungle to glacier go wild
For the love of the nature go wild
Don’t foul no wild locales, no doubt

Go wild! I wanna make ya go wild
It’s somewhat innate to go wild
So come unchained and go wild
No crowds, no loud smoke clouds no doubt

Go wild!
Ssh! Don’t speak, you need to listen
To the whispers in the trees with their secret message
It’s the original seed of religion
But I don’t need religion ‘cause I’m walkin’ with the Jesus lizard
In a stream in the depth of the Amazon
Or hoppin’ with the wallabes in the outbacks of Oz
Lovin’ the planet I’m on, so I gotta protect it
I see the hippopotamus’ aquatic perspective
And listen to the dolphin’s message
Plus I know they’re close cousins from biology lessons
And part of my family tree too, deep roots
Eat fruit from the trees like the chimpanzees do
And keep cool, when silverback gorillas be
Ice grillin’ me, I’m orangu-tranquility
Wilderness lives in me like a wildebeest
And still it’s only in the wild that I feel at ease

So I find a space to go wild
From jungle to glacier go wild
Every lover of nature go wild
Don’t foul no wild locales, no doubt

Go wild! I wanna make ya go wild
It’s somewhat innate to go wild
Come unchained and go wild
No crowds, no loud smoked clouds no doubt

Go wild!
That’s my exodus path
Back to nature, where my ancestors camped
No one’s tryin’ to say that development is bad
If it’s sustainably and intelligently planned
We can live on this planet and keep the rest of it intact
And leave space for the rhino and the elephant to have
And space for the wolf cubs to wrestle in packs
How much space? The best estimate is half
Fifty percent of our land mass
Anything less, we’d best protect it and hand back
And if you wanna ask, “why should we care and bother?”
You mean, besides the fact that it provides clean air and water
And medicine, and places to get exercise
And tells us that we’re just another thread in the web of life?
Well, I’ll just point to the intangibles
Step into the wild and feel the magnetic pull

You better find a space to go wild
From jungle to glacier go wild
Every lover of nature go wild
Don’t foul no wild locales, no doubt

Go wild! I wanna make ya go wild
It’s somewhat innate to go wild
So come unchained and go wild
No crowds, no loud smoke clouds no doubt

Go wild

Movin’ like a cheetah at the speed of lightening
Got the lyrics with the power of the European bison
Got the panoramic vision like the great horned owl
In captivity now, but baby I was born wild
