We grip so tight
But we won’t catch the Joneses
No we won’t catch the Joneses

We grip so tight, We hold on
We work so hard just to get to something
We won’t even want tomorrow
Sorrow in our buyer’s remorse
Like we ever had a choice In the matter
If it’s richer and richer,
Sadder and sadder, climb the ladder
Or poor and peaceful in your place
I’ll choose the latter

It just seems like
there is never enough
The more we get the
more it seems that we want
Sell our precious time on Earth
Looking for more stuff
But you know we’ll never
Catch the Joneses

We grow so tired of the norm
Search this world, for the next treasure
Thats always one day forgotten
Seeking out what can never be found,
Seems we never even reach the point, of satisfaction

We take and we take, it’s all just to make Ourselves feel alive
Change your mindset, Take back your soul
And deny the life of the Jones’es
