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
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

Songwriters
LARSON, JONATHAN D.
