  • This rock we're rolling on
    Is like a circus ride that don't last long
    Round and round we go and then we're gone
    We waste time chasing ghosts
    And overlook the things that matter most
    We get so caught up in the maybes
    Just trying to be somebody baby
    While we're slowly going crazy

    Building up a stack of bones
    Keeping up with the Jones
    Getting us all so jacked and jaded
    Baby if you're asking me
    Love is really all we need
    Everything else is overrated, overrated

    We amputate the heart
    'Cause we can't let 'em see the broken part
    Water down, unwind, and jump the shark
    We build our castles tall
    Just so we can have the higher walls
    But it no matter where you came from
    Or where it is you get your name from
    We're going down if we don't change some

    Building up a stack of bones
    Keeping up with the Jones
    Getting us all so jacked and jaded
    Baby if you're asking me
    Love is really all we need
    Everything else is overrated, overrated

    We're all running after something
    But if it ain't love it's nothing

    It don't matter where you came from
    Or where it is you get your name from
    We're going down if we don't change some
    I'm talking 'bout a ball of flames, son

    Building up a stack of bones
    Keeping up with the Jones
    Getting us all so jacked and jaded
    Baby if you're asking me
    Love is really all we need
    Everything else is overrated, overrated yeah
