Lyrics

The Joneses

I'm going to a funeral today

For somebody who hasn't passed away

But for all intents and purposes

He isn't with us anymore


Disappeared before I could say goodbye

Left in his place a vacant salesman who would only make me cry

Now the lights inside this home, they merely flicker

Not long ago they used to shine


Everyone was looking to The Joneses

But The Joneses were looking at us

Spotlights showcase the main attraction

Now there's nothing to show

Appearances can be deceiving

To the point we believe them ourselves

Load up on lies and cheap deception


In just one moment he became a sad cliche

Turned his back and packed his bags and walked away

His "I Dos" were merely words

And his forevers didn't last for all that long


Sit back, relax, and let the trauma take its toll

Absorb the aftershocks of truth you could not have known

Just close your eyes and pray

That when you wake again the hope won't linger long


Everyone was looking to The Joneses

But The Joneses were looking at us

Spotlights showcase the main attraction

Now there's nothing to show

Appearances can be deceiving

To the point we believe them ourselves

Stop striving for their false perfection


Everyone was looking to The Joneses

But The Joneses were looking at us

Spotlights showcase the main attraction

Now there's nothing to show

Appearances can be deceiving

To the point we believe them ourselves

See past the smiles and pretension
