01. Self-Starter

Vital
by Anberlin



 

Last night rolled over beside my bed
That sort of madness could leave us dead
Our eyes deceive we were on fire
Mistook for love and love desire

I still can’t feel nothing
Just want to, want to hold something
Tell me again what’s real?
Tell me again what to feel.

Why do you stay until you see blood?
Why does the weight fall upon us?
We’re on the same side in the same war
Why stay til you see blood?

Where are we that we digress
Long for love but then undress
Our hands no bounds, our hearts detached
We grasp for all that will not last

I still can’t feel nothing
Just want to, want to hold something
Tell me again what’s real?
Tell me again what to feel.


Why do you stay until you see blood?
Why does the weight fall upon us?
We’re on the same side in the same war
Why stay til you see blood?

Fall
Falter on my chest
Feel
Failure to progress



Behind the Song:
About the album:
There are different reasons I chose this title; first we wanted to create a record that when people looked back in time at Anberlin they would choose this record to show their friends as a summation of who we were as a band. The lyrics, the music, the instrumentation- we wanted it all to be simply quintessential ‘Anberlin’.

Finally, I think this was an urgent time for Anberlin, a turning point. We had no idea what was going to happen next in our careers which is the first time we had ever been unsure in our history as a band. The winds had begun to shift and the sense of urgency began to set in; the title ‘Vital’ fit perfectly to me. -- Stephen Christian


About 'Self-Starter':
'This song is about attempting to overcome a mutual vice with someone you are in a relationship with. It seems humanity as a whole is prone to pulling each other down, and we usually assimilate with whom we choose to spend the most time with.

We become callused to our own sin, immune to our shortcomings. We continue to indulge and soon it is a routine and part of our character. For the weak (all of us) we need something beyond ourselves to pull us out of the hole we have dug.

Overcome.' -- Stephen Christian
