Versions

The Frail

A very simplistic instrumental, The Frail is inspired from the guitar solo to "The Fragile." A piano melody (consisting of half-notes) and background white noise (heard from the end of "The Day The World Went Away") are the sole elements of this song. The melody and white noise slowly build to a synthesized vocal harmony, leading into "The Wretched."

The Frail (Version)

Found on Things Falling Apart, this version contains distorted elements and string instruments, with the melody played on a violin rather than a piano.
