Hand Covers Bruise

This is the original version. Beginning quietly with a mid-pitched drone that twinkles across the stereo field, a sustained piano melody plays over top. A second layer soon joins in, this one shimmering much like one of the layers at the beginning of "Just Like You Imagined." As higher-pitched drones fade in and out, synthesized bass hits enter intermittently. The piano melody returns again on top. Once the bass hits and piano stop, the drones hit a disharmonic apex, petering out to silence.

Hand Covers Bruise, Reprise

This is a reprise of the original.

Hand Covers Bruise (No Piano)

This version is the same as the original, but lacks the piano melodies.
