"Cha-Ching" as written by Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel Wayne Sermon, Benjamin Arthur Mckee and Clint Edward Holgate....
I don't sleep so well at night
Waiting up and shivering
Hate is gone and money's tight
This little home that I'm living in

You've got to live your life
While your blood is boiling
These doors won't open
While you stand and watch them

Oh oh oh, what is with you?
Oh oh oh, I've never seen this side of you
Oh oh oh, what is with you?
Oh oh oh, I've never seen this side of you

Hey

We are all living
Till we grow older
You'll be the worker
I'll be the soldier

Now let me hear those sounds you sing to me
Cha ching, cha ching, cha chingaling
Now let me hear those sounds you sing to me
Cha ching, cha ching, cha chingaling

I don't think it's quite the same
Just running out to feel the rain
Staring as the stars parade
Are they telling me it's gonna be okay?

You've got to live your life
While your blood is boiling
These doors won't open
While you stand and watch them

Oh oh oh, what is with you?
Oh oh oh, I've never seen this side of you

Hey

We are all living
Till we grow older
You'll be the worker
I'll be the soldier

Now let me hear those sounds you sing to me
Cha ching, cha ching, cha chingaling
Now let me hear those sounds you sing to me
Cha ching, cha ching, cha chingaling

(Oh, oh, oh)

We are all living
Till we grow older
You'll be the worker
I'll be the soldier

Now let me hear those sounds you sing to me
Cha ching, cha ching, cha chingaling
Now let me hear those sounds you sing to me
Cha ching, cha ching, cha chingaling

We are all living
Till we grow older
You'll be the worker
I'll be the soldier

Now let me hear those sounds you sing to me
Cha ching, cha ching, cha chingaling
Now let me hear those sounds you sing to me
Cha ching, cha ching, cha chingaling

(Till we're older)

    My InterpretationIt seems like a conversation between two people--two friends, relatives, lovers, etc. Either way, they live together. The first verse is one expressing concern about the other--"waiting up all night" especially considering his/her financial problems. The second one responds by saying how the only way to live life is with passion--making things happen and taking advantage of our youth and energy. It is only when "our blood is boiling" and we take action can anything good happen or change be made. You can't will the world to benefit you, you have to be proactive.

    The first person responds with confusion--evidently the two have been living their lives very quietly and in a routine. Never too financially secure, but content with their life and station in society. Clearly the second person disagrees--hence the chorus--"You be the worker...Let me hear...Cha-ching." He/she wants the first person to start working/working harder so as to produce more money until they are too old to do so anymore (something that apparently signifies one's death as well)

    The first person's retort is very unsure, as the verse ends with a question. Although it is a nice sentiment (and fun thing to do), standing out in the rain just to feel it and watching the stars but that won't make your life any better. The second person repeats their mantra of seizing life, the first person repeats their question (only once this time) and the second person repeats the chorus.

    The song then ends with both singing the chorus again--indicating the first person has been swayed by their friend/relative/lover. The song, like most Imagine Dragons songs, is about action. About not letting life pass you by. Although "Cha-Ching" sounds surprisingly materialistic, it is merely extending the ID philosophy to real life.
