adam pascal
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 till 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 own 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
