Into The Walls
griff Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Today
I think I'll disappear into the walls
Only for a day or two, at most
To see if anybody might call
To see just what it's like to hold it all
And maybe I'll feel a little bit strong for once
Strong for once
Strong enough to not feel so alone
Alone for once, oh

Yesterday I felt like dancin'
Tomorrow, maybe, I'll cry
Today, I feel like watchin'
So let them all come by, yeah
Oh, today, I don't like talkin'
Oh, soak me into the walls
And I'll just watch the world go
I'll watch you pass on by, yeah

I'll let them walk on by, yeah
When everything's on fire
Oh, damn, they just walk on by, yeah
And these tears'll dry, yeah
Oh, let them walk on by, yeah
When everything's on fire
Oh, damn, they just walk on by, yeah
And these tears'll dry

Today
I think I'll disappear into the walls
Only for a day or two, at most
To see just what it's like to hold it all, oh
'Cause I was walkin' 'round my room
Then it started turnin' blue
All the clothes and all the shoes
I didn't cry, don't know what to do

'Cause yesterday I felt like dancin'
Tomorrow, maybe, I'll cry
Today, I feel like watchin'
So let them all come by, yeah
Oh, today, I don't like talkin'
Oh, soak me into the walls
And I'll just watch the world go
I'll watch you pass on by, yeah

I'll let them walk on by, yeah
When everything's on fire
Oh, damn, they just walk on by, yeah
And these tears'll dry, yeah
Oh, let them walk on by, yeah
When everything's on fire
Oh, damn, they just walk on by, yeah
And then these tears'll dry

Today
I think I'll disappear into the walls
It's like watchin' paint dry
But that sounds quite nice tonight




Yeah, that sounds quite nice tonight
Yeah, that sounds quite nice to me

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to griff's song "Into The Walls" express a desire to escape from reality and find solace within oneself. The singer contemplates disappearing into the walls, metaphorically shutting themselves off from the outside world. It is a temporary escape, a brief respite from feeling alone and overwhelmed.


The lyrics suggest that the singer wants to see if anyone will notice their absence, to test if anyone truly cares. They long to experience the feeling of holding everything together, of being strong and not feeling alone. The singer desires a break from engaging with others, preferring to observe life from a distance, becoming part of the walls themselves.


The song explores the singer's emotional state, with references to past feelings of joy and anticipation ("Yesterday I felt like dancin'"), and an uncertain outlook on the future ("Tomorrow, maybe, I'll cry"). The desire to watch rather than engage with the world speaks to a sense of detachment and a need for introspection.
