What You Own Lyrics

MARK
Don't breathe too deep
Don't think all day
Dive into work
Drive the other way

That drip of hurt
That pint of shame
Goes away
Just play the game

You're living in America
At the end of the millennium
You're living in America
Leave your conscience at the tone
And when you're living in America
At the end of the millennium
You're what you own

ROGER
The filmmaker cannot see

MARK
And the songwriter cannot hear

ROGER
Yet I see Mimi everywhere

MARK
Angel's voice is in my ear

ROGER
Just tighten those shoulders

MARK
Just clench your jaw
Til you frown

ROGER
Just don't let go

BOTH
Or you may drown

You're living in America
At the end of the millennium
You're living in America
Where it's like the
Twilight Zone
And when you're living in America
At the end of the millennium
You're what you own

So I own not a notion
I escape and ape content
I don't own emotion - I rent

MARK
What was it about that night

ROGER
What was it about that night

BOTH
Connection -
In an isolating age

MARK
For once the shadows
Gave way to light

ROGER
For once the shadows
Gave way to light

BOTH
For once I didn't disengage

MARK
Angel -I hear you - I hear it
I see it - I see it
My film!

ROGER
Mimi I see you -
I see it
I hear it- I hear it
My song!

MARK:
Alexi - Mark
Call me a hypocrite
I need to finish my film
I quit!

ROGER
One song - Glory
Mimi
Your eyes

BOTH
Dying in America
At the end of the millennium
We're dying in America
To come into our own
And when you're dying in America
At the end of the millennium
You're not alone

I'm not alone
I'm not alone
