On the mark

Submitted by Ww Ww on 07.01.2017

On the mark (English) — On the right (measurement) point, exactly where one needs to be. It can be at a predetermined point where someone/something travels, goes to. To be just at the exact level, volume. "I filled the litre container to the top and stopped the water. I was on the mark."
"On your mark!" can be a preliminary command to put your foot in the proper place when a race will begin so it has a different meaning.

Ten thousand fists in the air

Power unrestrained
Dead on the mark
Is what we will deliver tonight
Deliver tonight

Disturbed - Ten Thousand Fists

So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem
To be on the mark

Don't you love her madly?

[Verse 1]
Record sales are on the mark
'Cause that's about the time the rumors start
Where all the people talking out of they ass

Fergie - Pedestal

The guidebook hints out the most crucial turn

Heroes in the movies, all wear mask when night comes
The me in reality relies on the mark of you wiping away the tears
Rescue yourself requires more bravery than rescuing the world
Every time when I speak up, you never turn me down

Magic Power - Thank You

I'm standing now
Spotlight down

I'm on the mark
Get ready set
I don't have all the answers yet
