  • I see a Mansard Roof through the trees
    I see a salty message written in the eves
    The ground beneath my feet
    We are garbage and concrete
    And now the tops of buildings
    I can see them, too

    I see a Mansard Roof through the trees
    I see a salty message written in the eves
    The ground beneath my feet
    We are garbage and concrete
    And now the tops of buildings
    I can see them, too

    The Argentines collapse in defeat
    The admiralty surveys the remnants of the fleet
    The ground beneath their feet
    Is a nautically map sheet
    As thin as paper
    While it slips away from you Writer/s: Christopher Joseph Baio, Christopher William Tomson, Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij
