    You own this



You want
You want things for yourself and not for others,
But superfluity just leads to clutter.
When want becomes a need
And you get bored
At least it’s yours.

So hold on,
Hold on to the keys of your seclusion.
Ownership is nothing but illusion.
There’s only one conclusion,
Must be yours!
Oh yes, it’s yours.

So buy a new phone, all the apps,
Your old one’s fine, but you fell for the traps.
You need a big screen television:
HD, Plasma; it’s your decision!
Thirteen closets full of clothes
You just can’t bear to let them go tonight.
So you hold on for your life because they're yours.

You need,
You need it new even if old’s not broken.
It all just piles up until you’re chokin’.
Even when you can’t breathe,
It’s still yours.
Look at all that’s yours!

You live,
You live just to possess; it’s your vocation.
But somehow you’ve lost all appreciation.
Now it’s all just shit that’s on the floor,
But oh at least it’s yours.

So buy that fancy diamond necklace.
Spend it all, go ahead; be reckless!
Overflowing sheds of tools,
And dishes that you never use
Twenty cars that sit and rot,
At least you fill your parking lot tonight.
More is always right long as it's yours.

Plates of food you throw away,
It's something you do every day.
Little trinkets, tons of toys,
We’ll teach our little girls and boys
To need what you want, submit to greed,
You can live the American dream,
And you'll be freed
'Cause it’s yours
Yes, oh yes, it's yours!
Thirteen closets full of clothes
You just can't bear to let them go tonight.
