"Just the Tip" as written by Greg Bergdorf, Matty Lewis, Ali Tabatabaee, Ed Udhus and Ben Osmundson....
We got bruised wrists, kick flips, sending an invasion
They say loose flips, sink ships, so might get your probation
No more teeth, six in the mix, ripping' round rotation
Chuck E. Cheese chips or kung fu kicks, just a kids sensation

So turn the radio on, press one for rock
Got a cuff to get off, what's done is done
Turn the radio on, it's never enough
I wanna change it all, I want it all

But you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want

Give up, give up, give up, the dream is over
We lost the moment, now we're running sober
Give up, give up, give up, don't even bother
Can't get what we want

Give up, give up, give up, the dream is over
We're going slow and dropping on their shoulder
Give up, give up, give up, don't even bother
We'll never get what we want

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

We want star ships, banana clips and start a hip religion
And a postscript recensionship to help them find a vision
But the bad pray for double play and move with pre-precision
And like arsenic, we're getting sick of all our indecision

So turn the radio on, press one for rock
Got a cuff to get off, what's done is done
Turn the radio on, it's never enough
I wanna change it all, I want it all

But you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want

Give up, give up, give up, the dream is over
We lost the moment, now we're running sober
Give up, give up, give up, don't even bother
Can't get what we want

Give up, give up, give up, the dream is over
We're going slow and dropping on their shoulder
Give up, give up, give up, don't even bother
We'll never get what we want

Hey, hey, hey

It's like working on the pieces when the puzzle doesn't fit
It's like the feeling that you get right before you get hit
It's like the ground opened up and swallowed you when you sit
It's like, be careful what you have 'cause now you got shit

It's like, you can't always get what you want
Opened up and swallowed you
You can't always get what you want
It's like a time bomb
You can't always get what you want
Opened up and swallowed you
You can't always get what you want

Give up, give up, give up, the dream is over
We lost the moment, now we're running sober
Give up, give up, give up, don't even bother
Can't get what we want

Give up, give up, give up, the dream is over
We're going slow and dropping on their shoulder
Give up, give up, give up, don't even bother
We'll never get what we want

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

    My InterpretationIn my humble opinion, this song is essentially about how people want practically anything they can get their hands on, but ironically, they often end up with less than they started with ("It's like you'd kill for what you had 'cause now you got shit"). The chorus offers the advice of giving up on getting everything you want and waking up from the "dream" of obtaining everything since "We'll never get what we want".
