Miranda
(Ken Double)

Miranda and the new world order
They nver thought about eachother much
They stopped her at the german border
Took her handbag and her lunchbox

In the world of her dreams
Everybody's gonna be free
But as strange as it seems
No one really wants it to be

There's nothing on the TV Monday
She goes and gets a drivethrough after work
She'll start a revolution one day
In her David Bowie teeshirt

The lady on the talkshow programme
Still loves this guy who hits her every night
Miranda turns the volume down and
Says she ought to start her own fight

There's a heart-shaped tattoo
Purple on his arm like a brand
And a phone number too
Written on the back of his hand

In the world of her dreams
Everybody's gonna be free
But as strange as it seems
No one really wants it to be

The world and its adopted daughter
They came to an arrangement after all
Miranda and the new world order
They're just waiting for a phone call
