Radical Face - Wrapped In Piano Strings Lyrics




I saw your father in the hall
His ghost is living in the walls
I heard him crying while you slept
I heard him breaking things after you left

I watched you crawl into my bed
With curses spilling from your head
You said "We're just the walking dead"
So I pulled the trigger and we floated off

Into the air
Into the air
Into the air
Into the air
Up in the air
We're in the air
Up in the air
Up in the air

I used to worry about the time
That I lost my teeth along the line
So I carved the apple from my eye
And gave it to you before I went away

Blood ran into the kitchen sink
Your hand and arms are running pink
I sat and watched you as your ring
Slipped off and rolled across the kitchen floor

They cut your eyes wide open
And bore into your precious head
My reach don't go that far dear
But please oh please don't let them in

I sank into the sea
Wrapped in piano strings
Few words could open me
But you knew them all

Now I just sleep beneath your floor
My ghost just tries to keep you warm
I've seen the end, I've lost the war
One day you'll join me here just like the rest

I hear the engines
They're roaring in our mouths
The smell of creatures
Are falling tooth and nail to get out

I see the airplanes
They're pouring from your chest
They fill the air
And burn and bury you just like the rest

    I saw your father in the hall
    His ghost is living in the walls
    I heard him crying while you slept
    I heard him breaking things after you left
    I watched you crawl into my bed
    With curses spilling from your head
    You said "We're just the walking dead"
    So I pulled the trigger and we floated off
    Into the air
    Into the air
    Into the air
    Into the air
    Up in the air
    We're in the air
    Up in the air
    Up in the air
    I used to worry about the time
    That I lost my teeth along the line
    So I carved the apple from my eye
    And gave it to you before I went away
    Blood ran into the kitchen sink
    Your hand and lives are running pink
    I sat and watched you as your ring
    Slipped off and rolled across the kitchen floor
    They cut your eyes wide open
    And bore into your precious head
    My reach don't go that far dear
    But please oh please don't let them in
    I sank into the sea
    Wrapped in piano strings
    Few words could open me
    But you knew them all
    Now I just sleep beneath your floor
    My ghost just tries to keep you warm
    I've seen the end, I've lost the war
    One day you'll join me here just like the rest
    I hear the engines
    They're roaring in our mouths
    The smell of creatures
    Are clawing tooth and nail to get out
    I see the airplanes
    They're pouring from your chest
    They fill the air
    And burn and bury you just like the rest

  3. Jack Kingson

    Raw ben howard

  4. Zuli Blue

    Coolest title ever

  5. Perdidit Deus

    This song makes my soul weep. I don't know why.

    Perdidit Deus

    I listened to this while going through a hard time. This reminds me of Autumn, the only season I feel at home. It reminds me that I've been through worse th a what I've been through now, and I can make it. It reminds me that I still have dreams I need to live.

  6. annaslullaby

  9. linasuperdina

    Such strong lyric game

  10. dsdqwefqwed

    The image of the airplanes in the end is so powerful...
    This song sends chills down my spine.

    Tor Parsons

    Kind of Neutral Milk Hotel-esque in the lyrical aspect. Airplanes, family, and death.

  11. Simon Mergner

    nice song and great lyrics but a very bad recording. you could sound a lot better!
    especially the stereo effects are very poor. If you want this typical "out of tune"-sound in your band, you need better mixing and recording. But keep making music!

    Simon Mergner

    Exactly for this reason there are studios, so musicians don't need to buy all this expensive stuff for themselves. Renting a studio is neither obligatory nor did I state anything like this.
    But especially with such a relatively dense instrumentation in this slightly-out-of-tune playing fashion I feel the need to recommend it. Of course it is a shame that there are a lot of musicians which are very talented but don't have the capital that would enable them to show there full potential. One might even say that it is worse that less talented musicians have more capital.

    Sometimes the beauty (and perfection) of a song lies on its imperfections.. this is one of those songs..
    Love it as is..

    Simon Mergner

    you're right

    screenpiece media

    sorry simple simon, i don't think you get the sound they were looking for, in my book, and I'm a pro TV/film/video editor, the production is superb, your not one those who look for something wrong with everything, are ya?

    Andstuff77

    I'm pretty sure this was recorded in a fucking shed. So I'd say he did a dope ass job.

  12. FloridaManShy

    crywolf introduced me to this. i dont regret it one bit

    FloridaManShy

    @Anthony Hill in the discription of his song "wake" he said that he would listen to this song on his motorcycle rides across the country. Of course he actually described how it made him feel in amazing detail. I just had to check it out

    kekmeup

    csfm00

  13. Vincent Donahue

    It depresses me that this song doesn't have more views

    MNeli

    _ xBuki10

    No habla español

    Marissa Martinez

    +Vincent Donahue fr tho -.- its so good

    Cheree Taylor

    +Vincent Donahue makes it that much more sacred. I think it's kool it is not mainstream.

    Robert Irwin

    I’m pretty sure 243 of the views are mine. :/ it’s still just a perfect song
