  • Lyrics

    I see a mansard roof through the trees

    I see a salty message written in the eaves

    The ground beneath my feet

    The hot garbage and concrete

    And now the tops of buildings, I can see them too

    The argentines collapse in defeat

    The admiralty surveys the remnants of the fleet

    The ground beneath their feet

    Is a nautically-mapped sheet

    As thin as paper

    while it slips away from you
