"Mapped By What Surrounded Them" as written by Andrew James Macfarlane, James Graham, Mark Gerard Devine and Craig Orzel....
And these walls
And these walls are filled with blame
And these walls
And these walls are filled with blame

And she's sitting in the primrose garden
And she's playing with her toys
Just another childlike ghost
The trees and animals cry

And you've shot down
And you've shot down
And she's taken far too young

And these walls
And these walls are filled with blame
And these walls
And these walls are filled with blame

And she's cut herself with stained glass window
And she's playing with her toys
Just another childlike ghost
The trees and animals cry

And you've shot down
And you've shot down
And she's taken far too young

And in my dreams I watch
(And you've shot down)
And in my dreams I watch Emily dance
(And you've shot down)

I watch Emily dance
(And she's taken far too young)
And in my dreams I watch Emily dance
I watch Emily dance

And in my dreams I watch
(And you've shot down)
And in my dreams I watch Emily dance
(And you've shot down)

I watch Emily dance
(And she's taken far too young)
And in my dreams I watch Emily dance
I watch Emily dance

And in my dreams I watch
(And you've shot down)
And in my dreams I watch Emily dance
(And you've shot down)

I watch Emily dance
(And she's taken far too young)
And in my dreams I watch Emily dance
I watch Emily dance

    General CommentThe title, at least, is taken from the Virgin Suicides:

    "In the end, we had pieces of the puzzle, but no matter how we put them together, gaps remained -- oddly shaped emptiness mapped by what surrounded them, like countries we couldn't name."

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a Gothic horror story. It is so ethereal, in spite of the heavy guitar sound. The combo of the noise and the delicate lyrics just bowls me over. Fantastic song.

    General CommentFor some reason, this song makes me think of N. Ireland during the Troubles and a little girl accidentally shot in the crossfire. I wonder who Emily really was....
