vampire weekend – mansard roof lyrics


i see a mansard roof through the trees
i see a salty message written in the eaves
the ground beneath my feet
the hot 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-mapped sheet
as thin as paper
while it sinks away from view
