"More Than This" as written by and Bryan Ferry....
Guess I had it coming
Ambition is my worst vice

Next thing I know
Time is having it's way with me

Working hard at putting skin on baloney
It all makes sense in some way I forget right now
Somehow I manage to fool
Myself and everyone else

That this is really just
Only, maybe, only,

Just the meantime
Meantime

Frequent liar mileage
As if I had a choice

Limp to the edge of patience
And let yourself fall

Wearing out mirrors
All over the world

I hope I can get far playing
Air guitar

In the meantime
Meantime

There has to be more than this
There has to be more than this

Somehow I manage to fool
Myself and everyone else

That this is really just
Only, maybe, only,

Just the meantime
Meantime

There has to be more than this

    General CommentGood lord, there no 'interpretation' necessary here. Soulwax just puts it out there, plain as day.

    I think a lot of men out there have felt this way at one time or the other. I know there was a time in my own life where I didn't feel like I had any direction, or felt like time was slipping away from me with nothing in return.

    The key here is the self-delusion angle. Who wouldn't want to be a rock star? Who doesn't have a dream of what life must be like above the hole you're in?

    You can almost imagine the conversations the guy has with himself: 'No, I'm good, man. Yeah, it's just a job I have to do for now. Everything's great...' Except when it's not.

    GREAT song that captures that feeling of hopelessness and irrational wishfulness at the same time.
