about

I loved «Barpiano» by the local band «Dachs» and wanted to continue the tale it tells.
Skiba

lyrics

He watches from afar
You're the only one he sees
He's devoted to the touch
Of your fingers on the keys

Your bones may be brittle
A little bitter is your heart
It's your soul that he desires
And the way you play your art

You're not the last one who leaves
He follows you on his knees

On your doorstep he breaks down
Devastated by the sounds
He fails to recreate
He's so worn out he hits the ground

You're not the last one who leaves
He follows you on his knees [2x]

It tears him apart how you live for your art so now
He wants it, too [2x]
It tears him apart how you'll die for your art so wno
He wants it, too
So he pulls out a knife
Puts an end to his life
And now you're dead, too

Cause now you're the last one who leaves
Nobody hears you plead
Cause now you're the last one who leaves
Death grabs your soul and leaves
