What song is this?

At the beginning of Alkaline Trio's song Time To Waste it sounds like a classical piece. Is that their music or did they use a piece of classical music? If they used classical, whats the piece? I liked that.

    I'm pretty sure they just came up with it buddy. Its like askin what classical piece is at the beginning of stairway to heaven, or bohemian rhapsody, or dust in the wind...or any coldplay song...or even metallica. They are musicians, its what they do.

    As a side note, i don't even think they came up with it, as when i saw them live, no one played that part... they just sorta pushed play and it started playing. so i assumed if no one is able to perform it, then they can't play piano, meaning they couldn't have created it. I dunno, just my 2 cents.

    Listening to the beginning of it, it seems rather basic (the harmony is simple being a walking broken arpeggio, and the melody is simply the same repeating theme over and over again) someone can simply do through a midi program and keyboard, and reading through some google hits regarding sheet music requests, I'm going to lean that it isn't a song so much as the band's own part of their song they did themselves.

    As to the mention of them not being able to come up with it themselves, well, you can just get a keyboard and a good enough midi program and get everything done through there. If they just played a recording of it then I'm sure that's what they did.
