"Wanderlust" as written by and Christopher Robert Talbot Ben Little....
We're decadent beyond our means, we've a zeal
We feel the things they'll never feel
They're solemn in their wealth, we're high in our poverty
We see the things they never see

Wanderlust
With us, the world feels voluptuous
I just feel more, with us
It's a feeling that I've come to trust

Now that you answer to me
I'll tell you how I wanna feel
Now that the walls have been broke
I'll tell you how I wanna feel

Wanderlust
With us, the world feels voluptuous
I just feel more, with us
It's a feeling that I've come to trust
It's a feeling that I've come to trust
It's a feeling that I've come

Don't confuse me with someone who gives a fuck
Funny how that little pound will buy a lot of luck
Don't confuse me with someone who gives a fuck
In your mother tongue, what's the verb to suck?

Don't confuse me with someone who gives a fuck
Funny how that little pound will buy a lot of luck
Don't confuse me with someone who gives a fuck
In your mother tongue, what's the verb to suck?

Don't confuse me with someone who gives a fuck
Funny how that little pound will buy a lot of luck

    General CommentFantastic song on a fantastic album.

    For me this is about living an immaterialistic and hedonistic life and exploring pleasures (sex, drugs and ... traveling )

    Song Meaning[“Wanderlust” is] very much about British class: In reality, it’s become a similar life choice to be in the arts and to make music as it is to be a politician or banker at this point. People who don’t have to worry about money want to obtain what money can’t buy—things like artistic instinct or taste—and the song is about those who want to desperately buy a position within the arts, yet their heart’s not there. A lot of people are bringing their business models into their music now, and it’s starting to show.

    Artists hold a unique place in society in that they are held in high esteem because they are distributors of comfort and joy and relief. The job is really essential, but the role of a musician is changing. It isn’t the glamor draw that it used to be, and if you want to make audacious work, you are risking not being able to pay your rent, and that’s OK. But there are people who don’t have to worry about paying their rent who still make music that sounds like they’re trying to pay the rent rather than taking on the possibilities of what they could achieve.
