"Map of the Falling Sky" as written by and Jason Molina....
I have paid my debts sometimes
With awkward silences
I was given two ears of corn and the bough (not sure on This last word)
I ate the one, and sowed the other
And brother, I aim straight for the road
And brother, I aim straight for the road

With my wings in one hand and lead in the other
From the cross roads to the shore
What the horizon only tells to us ghosts
Is that when it is quiet in our heart
We become the diesel
We become the smoke
We become the prairie
We become the spark
And the only song coming through on the radio
And the only song comin' in on the radio

Well you take that map of the falling sky and you lay it Across your heart
And the loneliness between us is right where you are
The loneliness is right where you are

    Lyric CorrectionTried to add these lyrics myself, but I imagine because someone already suggested this song without adding lyrics this cannot be done so I will do so in the comments section.

    ------------
    I have paid my debts sometimes
    With awkward silences
    I was given two ears of corn and the bow
    I ate the one and sowed the other
    And brother, I aimed straight for the road...
    And brother, I aimed straight for the road...

    With my wings in one hand and lead in the other
    From the crossroads to the shore
    What the horizon only tells to us ghosts
    Is that when it's quiet in our hearts

    We become the diesel
    We become the smoke
    We become the prairie
    We become the spark

    And the only song coming in on the radio
    (The only song on the radio)
    And the only song coming in on the radio...

    Well you take that map of the falling sky
    And you lay it across your heart
    And the loneliness between us is right where you are...
    And the loneliness between us is right where you are...
    -----------

    One of my absolute favorite Molina songs bar none.
