What You Own is a duet sung by Mark Cohen and Roger Davis

LyricsEdit

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!


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
