New Map
M83 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

There's a hole in your heart, begging for adventure.
Play yourself a new track, set traps for the future.
On your own.
Can you do it?
The unknown.
Can you face it?

Shifting desire, shifting desire, shifting desire

Rules of conformity, heavy clouds of reason.
They're hiding the beauty of your free distortions.
On your own.
Can you do it?
The unknown.
Can you face it?
With your soul, now you see it.
The landscape is infinite.





Shifting desire, shifting desire, shifting desire

This sounds like the sort of song I'd expect to hear during the end credits of a movie.

This bright flash by m83 was used as the credits for the movie chronicle

Lib

it’s funny because my tears are becoming a sea(the track before this on the album) sounds like the ending to a gut wrenching teen romance movie where the love interest dies and the protagonist finally can move on and this song sounds like the the credits lol

Meeschell

Or the beginning

News flash: this is the intro music to a terrible yet satisfying. High school experience.
