Some Things Never Change

This song is by Stan Bush and appears on the album Language Of The Heart (2001).

Johnny got a brand new job
And a shiny new company car
His boss really likes him
As he pats him on the back and says
Son you're gonna go real far
Johnny says he'll do whatever it takes
Gonna climb that ladder until it breaks
He can already see his room with a view
And to get what he wants
There's nothing he won't do

Seems like everything's going so right
But Johnny still can't sleep at night

Some things will never change
It's just the nature of the beast
Now he never gets enough
Of what he don't need
And he's too damn blind to see
Some things will never change

He bought a house in the neighborhood
He only used to drive through
He's moving up, living large
Don't care who he's gotta lie to
Now he's got no plans, only one-night stands
Cause to him, love only has victims
It's a disease of the soul and it's hard to let go
And Johnny's got all the symptoms

He thinks the Wall Street Journal
Holds the meaning of life
But Johnny still can't sleep at night

Some things will never change
It's just the nature of the beast
Now he never gets enough
Of what he don't need
And he's too damn blind to see
Some things will never change

Oh yeah, never change, oh yeah

Now you've lost the war
But you've won the fight
Johnny can you sleep at night

Some things will never change
It's just the nature of the beast
And we'll never get enough
Of what we don't need
And we're too damn blind to see
Some things will never change
As they come starving to the feast
Now we never get enough
Of what we don't need
We're too damn blind to see
Ooh, some things will never change, yeah yeah
Oh, they'll never change

Yeah yeah
