All of Anberlin's Lyrics Now Up

Posted by - 10:34 AM on 08/21/14
Anberlin's site with all their lyrics and write-ups about the lyrics has been updated with all of the band's songs.
The title is a mantra that we as Anberlin have always tried to adhere to, we never wanted to be ‘rock stars’ we never wanted people to think that we thought of ourselves as better than anyone. We hope that we were more than just a band, we hope in the end that we are considered friends; I felt this was the perfect message to leave out on.

What does he mean when he says that the title of Stranger Things will only be known to those at AP.net?

It's interesting how he says multiple times in lowborn that a member didn't like a particular song, or, he was surprised a song made the record. Sounds like a VERY disjointed affair.

I thought about that too. Could be it's the same deal with all the other albums, they just aren't as fresh on the memory.

This is really cool. How about the songs from Devotion and Lost Songs though?

Stephen Christian is simply just one of THE coolest guys. Reading his thoughts behind these songs breathes major new life into them.

I remember back when The Everglow came out, the Mae guys were reluctant to say what the songs meant in order to leave them up to interpretation. Stephen echo'd that sentiment on the story behind A Whisper And A Clamor. I get it, but years later on all of these CDs (other than Lowborn) after building my own connection to them, now learning Stephen's outlook makes me want to revisit their entire catalogue all over again to get a different perspective.

This website of paraphrased meanings is one of the greatest things a band can do.

Guess we'll never what he sang on Dissenter haha. That's really great to finally have the lyrics for lowborn. I loved the Hamburger comment, indeed that would be a great name for a record!

I can't wait until people get confused why CDS Wireless Internet should know why a song has a certain title.

Agreed about "Losing It All." Top three track for me, I love that song. Lowborn is such a great exit record - especially with "Atonement" and all.

I was hoping this would show some insights into Lowborn that would make me like it more than just "pretty well", but alas, not today.
