Set it down and leave it there
that's how you show you care
You're good at owning
Take a look at what you got
'cause boy, you got a lot
You're good at owning
You can see the future but you got no imagination
Guess if you can see the future, then you don't need one

Run aground when lost at sea
What's your job gonna be?
You're good at owning
Building? Growning? Not as such
and earning, not so much,
but good at owning
Like that's the sort of thing on which it all depends
Like that's the sort of thing that's going to make you friends

Being good at owning

So good at owning no one's owning anything but you
And anything that you don't own'll never make it through
I feel like there used to be a little more to do
I feel like I used to own things too

Didn't do what it was meant
still, up the stock went
Good at owning
What it became is hard to say
Where is it, anyway?
Good at owning
It won't be repaired or come around or take a bribe
We don't own anything anymore, we just subscribe

But I was good at owning
And I wasn't alone-ing
