Lyrics

I'm not yours anymore.
I belong to everyone, everywhere.

Who will take me out,
Out to the ballgame?
I am ready
To root,
To root for the home team.

But I'm not yours any more
Than the litter owns the beach.
I'm not yours any more
Than the dust owns the TV screen.

And I am skeleton strong,
My body moves
Brilliantly.

And there are wonders working
Inside of me
While I sleep.

All the doctors of modern medicine
Couldn't put their finger on it

How could I be autonomous
And yet too foolish to believe?

People take your children to the playground,
People drink the water from the fountain,
And use me.
Use me.

I'm not yours any more
Than the sparrow owns the tree.
I'm not yours anymore
I'm public property.

I'm not yours anymore.
I belong to everyone, everywhere.
