What You Own

Lyrics

Original Broadway Cast

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

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
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 it - I see it
My film!

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

Alexi - Mark One song - Glory
Call me a hypocrite Mimi
I need to finish my own film Your eyes
I quit!

Dying in America
A 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
