Rent Rent

Rent is the first real song in the musical. And is the second song in the movie.

LyricsEdit

Mark:
How Do You Document Real Life
When Real Life's Getting More
Like Fiction Each Day
Headlines - Bread-Lines
Blow My Mind
And Now This Deadline
"Eviction - Or Pay"
Rent
Roger:
How Do You Write A Song
When The Chords Sound Wrong
Though They Once Sounded Right And Rare
When The Notes Are Sour
Where Is The Power You Once Had To Ignite the Air


Mark:
And We're Hungry And Frozen



Roger:
Some Life That We've Chosen

Mark & Roger:
How We Gonna Pay
How We Gonna Pay
How We Gonna Pay
Last Year's Rent

Mark:
We Light Candles

Roger:
How Do You Start A Fire
When There's Nothing To Burn
And It Feels Like Something's Stuck In
Your Flue

Mark:
How Can You Generate Heat
When You Can't Feel Your Feet


Mark & Roger:
And They're Turning Blue!

Mark:
You Light Up A Mean Blaze

Roger:
With Posters-

Mark:
And Screenplays

Mark & Roger:
How We Gonna Pay
How We Gonna Pay
How We Gonna Pay
Last Year's Rent

Joanne:
(On phone)
Don't Screen, Maureen
It's Me - Joanne
Your Substitute Production Manager
Hey Hey Hey! (Did You Eat)
Don't Change The Subject Maureen
But Darling - You Haven't Eatin All Day

You Won't Throw Up
You Won't Throw Up
The Digital Delay--
-Didn't Blow Up (Exactly)
There May Have Been One Teeny Tiny Spark
You're Not Calling Mark

Collins:
How Do You Stay On Your Feet
When On Every Street
It's 'Trick Or Treat'
(And Tonight It's 'Trick')
'Welcome Back To Town'
I Should Lie Down
Everything's Brown
And Uh - Oh
I Feel Sick

Mark:
Where Is He?

Collins:
Getting Dizzy

Mark & Roger:
How We Gonna Pay
How We Gonna Pay
How We Gonna Pay
Last Year's Rent

Benny:
(On cellular phone)
Allison Baby - You Sound Sad
I Don't Believe Those Two
After Everything I've Done

Ever Since Our Wedding
I'm Dirt - They'll See
I Can Help Them All Out In The Long Run

Forces Are Gathering
Forces Are Gathering
Can't Turn Away
Forces Are Gathering

Collins:
Ughhhhh-
Ughhhhh-
Ughhhhhh- I Can't Think
Ughhhhh-
Ughhhhh-
Ughhhhh- I Need A Drink

Mark:
"The Music Ignites The Night With
Passionate Fire"

Joanne:
Maureen - I'm Not A Theatre Person

Roger:
"The Narration Crackles And Pops With
Incendiary Wit"

Joanne:
Could Never Be A Theatre Person

Mark:
Zoom In As They Burn The Past To The
Ground

Joanne:
Hello?

Mark & Roger:
And Feel The Heat Of The Future's
Glow

Joanne:
Hello?

Mark:
(On phone)
Hello? Maureen?
-Your Equipment Wont Work?
Okay, All Right, I'll Go!


Mark & Half of the Company: How Do You Leave The Past Behind
When It Keeps Finding Ways To Get To
Your Heart
It Reaches Way Down Deep And Tears
You Inside Out
Til You're Torn Apart
Rent

Roger & Other Half of the Company:
How Can You Connect In An Age
Where Strangers, Landlords, Lovers
Your Own Blood Cells Betray

All:
What Binds The Fabric Together
When The Raging, Shifting Winds Of Change
Keep Ripping Away

Benny:
Draw A Line In The Sand
And Then Make A Stand

Roger:
Use Your Camera To Spar

Mark:
Use Your Guitar

All:
When They Act Tough - You Call Their
Bluff

Mark & Roger:
We're Not Gonna Pay

Mark & Roger with Half of the Company:
We're Not Gonna Pay

Mark & Roger with Other Half of the Company:
We're Not Gonna Pay

All:
Last Year's Rent
This Year's Rent
Next Year's Rent

Rent Rent Rent Rent Rent
We're Not Gonna Pay Rent


'Cause Everything Is Rent
