Death Cab For Cutie – Different Names For The Same Thing lyrics

Alone on a train aimless in wonder
An outdated map crumbled in my pocket
But I didn't care where I was going
They're all different names for the same place.

The coast just appeared when the sea drown the sun
I have no words to share with anyone
The boundaries of language are quietly cursed
All the different names for the same thing.

There are different names for the same thing
There are different names for the same thing...
