lyrics

i was studying maps
of the worlds i made
tracing back the roads i'd always known
but forgot to name

following the currents
you known the currency is down
and underneath every small country town
the news is sweepin the ground

but darling, follow me back to the city where
the evening light it sure looks pretty
under the pineapple trees
over you and me

and we're saying we've, we've got to compensate
for everything we take
this time is not the same
you know it's not too late
we've got to compensate
and though we make mistakes
we won't see them today

pulling back the curtain
you know nobody was sure
feed me uncertainty impossibility
i swear up and down

that darling, follow me down to the center where
i've been digging the roots, and slowly
was tracing em up
to the trees that've been cut

and darling, follow me back to the city where
the pineapple trees look pretty
and in the evening light
we're saying it's alright

and that we've, we've got to compensate
for everything we take
this time is not the same
you know it's not too late
we've got to compensate
and though we make mistakes
we won't see them today

now ain't it a pity
it's all nasty and shitty
covering up for the fact i never made it back
to the pineapple city

and darling, follow me down to the center where
i've been digging the roots, and slowly
was tracing em up
to the trees that've been cut
