different names for the same thing lyrics – death cab for cutie

alone on a train aimless in wonder
an outdated map crumbled in my pocket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 knew no words to share 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…
