Wanderlust

"One of my favorite movies is 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' with Clint Eastwood. Wanderlust is partly about someone who moves from town to town and who has a pursuer who is after him. In heavy metal there are always new bands, who try to push the most popular band from the top. This song describes someone who can draw his gun quicker than the other one. Its very much inspired by classical duels."
(Mustaine, 1999)

As sure as the sun rises in the east
Another gunman will come, seeking my defeat
Will he be as fast as me,
Are his nerves quiet and still
Will he fall like all the rest
Ending his days upon boothill

I'm an outcast, riding into town alone
I got wanderlust, branded deeper than the bone
I'm an outcast, riding into town alone
I got a lust for wandering
Branded deeper than the bone

As I ride into the sunset, to take another town
Thank you for the invite, but I just can't settle down
The dust that coats my hat is from a dozen towns
Dust from shooting down, another dozen clowns

A drum beats for me, it's louder every day
The cadence tells me
That soon I'll meet my judgment day
Life's an endless showdown
Never knowing when they'll come
I sleep with one eye open
Lying with my smoking gun

The game I play has caused a lot of grief
They were dying for fame, so I obliged them some relief

I'm an outcast, riding into town alone
I got wanderlust, branded deeper than the bone
I'm an outcast, with lightning in my hand
I got wanderlust, lost in no man's land
