Music and lyrics by Damon Waitkus
The pilot, when he is flying,
his mind is on air currents:
air currents have a lot to do with it–
but he feels, I know he feels
that holy lift.
Set foot upon the ground
and that feeling of buoyancy
turns back into a myth.
The myth is the star you see
by looking at the star next to it.
It sings, “I’m alive.”
