Different Names for the Same Thing
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics

Alone on a train aimless in wander
An outdated map crumpled in my pocket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
I knew no words to share it with anyone
The boundaries of language I quietly cursed
And all the different names for the same thing

I used to own this DVD and I KNOW there's a version where we get to hear the band kids actually performing it! Time to go looking...


If you find it please oh please link it.


I’m listening to this band for 10 years but right now i’ve understood why, cause they do their thing with heart ♥️
Thanks for sharing

This was Scott Hutchison's (Frightened Rabbit) favorite Death Cab song!

Kris Cain

This connection wasn't lost on me either. I love how much this reminds me of tiny changes music video too.


Original song was released in 2005. Those kids are college age or a bit older now... ;)
