I remember your silver ring
On the black and white keys falling
And the colour, the shape of your hand
As you point at the paintings you don’t hang

I will forget, piece by piece
I will forget, piece by piece
Into the dark piece by piece
Into the air piece by piece

Sun and moon
I waited here
For you to rise
And disappear now

I will forget piece by piece
I will forget piece by piece
Into the air piece by piece
I will forget piece by piece

Love you can stay
Your scent on my collar
The colour will fade
I know that it's worthless
The chase and decay
It leaves me with worthless love

I will forget piece by piece
I will forget piece by piece

I will forget you piece by piece
I will forget you piece by piece

    My InterpretationThis song is about memory and how it begins so vividly in ones mind, but from then on it slowly decays until it is forgotten altogether. The lyrics are pretty good and portraying the sadness of the narrator, who doesn't want to forget, but at the same time, knows that they will eventually.

    The music also gets this across, because as it progresses, it is interrupted constantly by buzzes of electronic fuzz that obscures the melody of the song, thus showing a deconstruction of the melody. Anna's sudden guitar solo is another good example of memory corruption.
