Lyrics

Mira’s got a job tonight
Keeping someone up
Handing them their lemonade
In a sharkskin cup
Mira wants to leave the crowd
Sail to where things crack
Where steam and ice go hand in hand
And nobody comes back

Born on the wind
Born on the wind

Mira was an accident
That couldn’t be reversed
"Think of how you’d feel" she said
"If you could feel this cursed
I’m going where the streets are seas
And down beneath my keel
The seaweed flows through the ventilation shafts
And that’s the way I feel"

Born on the wind
Born on the wind
Born on the wind

"We live in a pornocracy" she said
"Where people fan their flames
Desire is your only judge
And god has many names
One of them is Mr. Spinks
And one of them is God"
Mira fishes from the rocks
For the da Vinci cod

Born on the wind
Born on the wind
Born on the wind
Born on the wind
