Holland, 1945 by Neutral Milk Hotel

The only girl I've ever loved
Was born with roses in her eyes
But then they buried her alive
One evening 1945
With just her sister at her side
And only weeks before the guns
All came and rained on everyone
Now she's a little boy in Spain
Playing pianos filled with flames
On empty rings around the sun
All sing to say my dream has come

But now we must pick up every piece
Of the life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves
At least enough to carry on

And now we ride the circus wheel
With your dark brother wrapped in white
Says it was good to be alive
But now he rides a comet's flame
And won't be coming back again
The Earth looks better from a star
That's right above from where you are
He didn't mean to make you cry
With sparks that ring and bullets fly
On empty rings around your heart
The world just screams and falls apart

But now we must pick up every piece
Of the life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves
At least enough to carry on

And here's where your mother sleeps
And here is the room where your brothers were born
Indentations in the sheets
Where their bodies once moved but don't move anymore
And it's so sad to see the world agree
That they'd rather see their faces fill with flies
All when I'd want to keep white roses in their eyes.

I have seen many a "piano with something coming out of it" sub on this site before, but none that match the simplicity and sheer jaw-dropping beauty you managed to cram into so few colors. This design sets my brain afire with goodness.

are you from the netherlands?

i am actually living close to the border(near viersen if you might know it).

i think this one is a complete unique one on whole threadless. not just because of the art, design and look, also because of the strong, serious content.

it is very poetic and original. like on of the great canvas of the expressionistic painters of the beginning of the last century.

the only thing i would had improve is the tee color. blank white is often always too flat. and maybe some slight adumbrations of burning ruins placed in the background. but these are specifics.

a great tee!
