The Medic Droid – Keeping Up With The Joneses lyrics

The lights are out and the dance floors waiting but your too busy blending in the crowd.
The lights are out and the dance floors waiting but your too busy following the crowd.

And when you come back down now girl.(2x)

When you were a young girl did you wona be something more baby.
But now you feel your so lost and your burning up inside. Yeah

We're clocking in to watch our fate come crashing down.(2x)

I cant pretend I'm happy when and now I know its pointless.
I'm constantly on a down and I'm tired of waiting.
Climb to the top we climb to the top and now you're falling again.

The lights are out and the dance floors waiting but your too busy blending in the crowd.
The lights are out and the dance floors waiting but your too busy following the crowd.

And when you come back down now girl.(2x)

When I was a young boy I wanted to be something more baby
But I cant dance no and I sure as fuck cant sing.
We're clocking in to watch our fate come crashing down.(2x)

Why do we play into this motive. What are you waiting for tonight.
You wonder, you wait and you cant get through this without a line. Now.
Climb to the top we climb to the top and now you're falling again.

Lets brake it down.

Every thing's so jaded baby fathers trying hard to keep up with the Jones' and his wife's
So dirty baby sexing up every Tom, Dick and Harry in town. Lets go!

I can't pretend I'm happy when and now I know its pointless.
I'm constantly on a down and I'm tired of waiting.
Climb to the top we climb to the top and now you're falling again

    I think it's about a boy and a girl, the girl doesn't want to be seen with the boy or something because he can't dance well. "Keeping up with the joneses" and "Climb to the top" means that she tries to be as good as the other girls which have nice boyfriends. And her boyfriend isn't as good as theirs because he can't dance or sing. The guy is "tired of waiting" because the girl never wants to dance with him, and he "know's it's pointless" waiting for her to dance.
    "We're clocking in to watch our fate come crashing down" means to me that it's only a matter of time before they break up.
    Anyways it's a great song (:

    Um. I'm just taking a stab here, but this guy and a girl are in the club, and they've been dating for a while. He's tired of waiting for her to dance with him and realize what she has. She's avoiding him in the club and he's down and out because his girlfriend doesn't want to be seen with him. Because he can't dance? I really don't know the real meaning. But they're "Clocking in to watch their fate come crashing down." Their relationship is screwed.
    But I love this song!

    This is such an insanly old song. I listened to it yearsss ago & didn't completely understand it.
    It sort of describes alot of people in the rave scene. It's not about him wanting to dance with her or wishing he could sing hahah.
    But it is about him watching her ruin her life by doing drugs and 'following the crowd' at the parties instead of being on the waiting dance floor.
