Wrapped In Piano Strings
Radical Face 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
But 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 pour 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 the chest
They fill the air
And burn and bury just like the rest

So I pulled the trigger and we floated off

We're in the air
Up in the air

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

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.

I love this song because it can mean so many things depending on who listens to it

mochalex

A nightmare wrapped in an acoustic ballad.

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.

Why is radical face so underrated when they make music like this... Have people gone deaf??
