Death Cab For Cutie Different Names For The Same Thing Lyrics

Last updated: 03/10/2010 10:00:00 AM

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An outdated map crumpled in my pocket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

The coast disappeared when the sea drowned the sun
And I have no words to share it with anyone
The boundaries of language I quietly cursed
And all the different names for the same thing.

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

Hes talking about how he has traveled to so many places and seen wonderful things but when he see them he can't express himself and share it with other people because he can't speak the native tongue of the country hes in. He can't name what hes seeing because there are so many names for the same exact thing all across the world.
