From Yesterday Lyrics ©30 Seconds to Mars (as far as we know)

He's a stranger to some
And a vision to none
He can never get enough
Get enough of the one

For a fortune he'd quit
But it's hard to admit
How it ends and begins
On his face is a map of the world
–A map of the world
On his face is a map of the world
–A map of the world

From yesterday, it's coming
From yesterday, the fear
From yesterday, it calls him
But he doesn't want to write the message here

On a mountain he sits, not of gold but of shit
Through the blood, he can learn, see the lives that he took
From a council of one
He'll decide when he's done with the innocent
On his face is a map of the world
–A map of the world
On his face is a map of the world
–A map of the world

The meaning of the phrase, "face is a map of the world", is generally thought to be a reference to someone who has been a lot of places, done a lot of things, and/or been through a lot and his face tells the story of those experiences.
