Anchor & Brail Singled Out Week: Find Me

This week Anberlin's lead singer Stephen Christian's releases the new Anchor & Brail album "Quiet Life." To celebrate, we asked Stephen to tell us about some of his favorite songs from the album. Today he tells us about the song "Find Me":

This song was written on the top floor of a double-decker bus in England. It was raining that night and I didn't feel like going out that night. I was away from my friends and family and the whole idea of being separated from everything I loved was weighing on me. Being a traveling salesman it seems the only stability in life is instability. I wanted to turn off my mind and focus on how incredible my life truly was, I didn't want to wallow in the shallow pool of self-pity so I began to write, I mean after all I was in the UK, exploring places people only dream about.

I think of all the lyrics on this record these came out the most concise and introspective. Since I did write it in the UK I think I was influenced by the surrounding sounds… doves, radiohead, travis, etc. It was the first song I had written for the record and feel it's the foundational piece that all the other songs were tailored to.

Lyrical intentions: 'I've been waiting for all my life for a drug called peace of mind', but I don't think that I am any closer to finding it then when I first started out. Perhaps part of me never wants to find it, the uncertainty of it all is intoxicating, it makes for an exciting yet erratic tomorrow.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
