About this map, here we are, here
See, this is us, the exit is here, and
We've come too far, to just feel like this, yeah
We've come too far, to be feeling like this

Certain, certain
You want to, want to
Certain, certain
You want to, want to

About this map, it's a bit out of date, yeah
Territories shifted, and things get renamed
There's coups, revolutions, and boundaries blur
Volcanoes and earthquakes turn words into birds

It's certain, certain
You want to, want to
Certain, certain
You want to, want to, want to

But, oh, about this map
It goes beyond, beyond
And, oh about this map
About this map

About this map, here we are, here
See, this is me, and there you are, there, and
There's got to be more than just to despair
There's got to be more than just to despair

I'm certain, certain
I want to, want to
You're certain, certain
You want to, want to, want to

And, oh, about this map
It goes beyond, beyond
Forget about this map
About this map

And, oh, about this map
We don't live in our heads
Forget about this map
About this map
About this map
About this map
About this map

    General CommentThis song is about an old treasure map that Robert Brown sent to London England in the year 1858. Both Downie Creek and Baker Creek exist today in the interior of B.C. Canada.
    Shortly after the discovery of the gold fields (near the current town of Golden B.C) Queen Victoria and a lawyer from Kingston held a "private" meeting. Canada was born July 1st, 1967. Sir John A. MacDonald held prime minister for 24 years and was often referred to as a drunk.

    William Downie was a gold prospector whom,in my opinion, looks like the lead singers. In my opinion ;-)
