Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Matt Berninger stretching his vocal range after becoming immersed in the work of Roy Orbison. "I mostly admired his ability to take those melodic left turns," he told The Sun. "'In Dreams' has eight melodies and never goes back to a repeated verse or chorus. 'Heavenface' does that on our record while 'Pink Rabbits' also keeps changing and shifting.
    Although my vocal range is nothing like Orbison's I was trying a lot of higher registers."
