there are different names
"There are different names for the same thing" this song (yet again by death cab..) was what inspired me to do this piece. I thought the lyrics were amazing for this song so i decided to post them here as well. The man in the painting has had his head cut off, which at first you may look at as a bad thing, because he looks like he is in pain. but on the other hand, perhaps his head is what was causing him pain to begin with, so now he has purged himself of it. Acrylic on canvas.
"Alone on a train aimless in wonder
An outdated map crumbled in my pocket
But I didn't care where I was going
'Cause they're all different names for the same place.
The coast disappeared when the sea drowned the sun
And I knew no words to share with anyone
The boundaries of language I quietly cursed
And all the different names for the same thing
There are different names for the same things
There are different names for the same things..."
