"Blank Maps" as written by and Ladan Hussein....
Don't you wait on me, I'll shoo you down
Keep your eyes closed, your ear to the ground
Pick up in the middle of the night
Kill the silence, I can't bear to speak
Head for the heart, does it break
Words may fall, the body remains
And every map is blank

When my words head for the cracks
Will you have my back
We were good children
Darling, let it out

I hold my breath, don't like to move
When the night comes, who will you be
Even the dead cannot be astoundingly alive
I am I am, I am I am a goddamn believer

When my words head for the clouds
Will you have my back
We were good children
Darling, let it out

Well, I am I am, I am I am a goddamn believer

    General Commentim surprised this song doesnt have more comments. its amazing! i think this song is about friendship or maybe love. but i think its about trust and always believing in someone no matter what.

    My InterpretationMaybe i'm taking this song too much for face value, but I think this song is refering to Al Spx's (Cold Specks) personal beliefs. "Blank Maps" refers to how we are given very little direction in life nor are we given any evidence whether or not there is more than a physical reality. She professes that we cannot truly know whether or not there is anything more, we have to have faith and believe - "I am a goddamn believer." Lyrics like "Keep your eyes closed, your ear to the ground" express that you have to trust something more than what you can see. "When words head for the cracks will you have my back" is her way of saying that when words are useless, only faith will be able to help you.
    Regardless, it's a great song!
