What You Own Lyrics

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

The filmmaker cannot see
And the songwriter cannot hear

Yet I see Mimi everywhere

Angel's voice is in my ear

Just tighten those shoulders

Just clench your jaw til you frown

Just don't let go
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 What was it about that night (What was it about that night)

Connection, in an isolating age

For once the shadows gave way to light (For once the shadows gave way to light)

For once I didn't disengage

Angel, I hear you, I hear it
I see you, I hear it, I hear it, I hear it (My film)
My song

Alexi, Mark (One song)
Call me a hypocrite
I need to finish my own film (Mimi, your eyes)
I quit

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
