No longer shaped by wind and rain
But men with names-
Or large metal eggs that are hatched by planes.
It will take effort and new eyes
to try and understand the map.

    In my eyes, this song is about trying to make sense of a world that is no longer governed by natural laws, but by humans and the institutions they create. this is something i struggle with on a daily basis, so this song really has a haunting resonance with me.
