Burn Out Brighter (Northern Lights)
10/18/08 at 10:02 PM by Jonathan Bautts
So late last night I was able to interview Anberlin vocalist Stephen Christian a second time. Despite battling laryngitis, he put on a dynamite show and was nice enough to still do the interview, further proving why he's one of my favorite people ever and an incredible human being. In honor of their album New Surrender being one of the best of 2008 and Stephen's general awesomeness, here's the lyrics to one of my favorite songs from it, which is a great one to live life by.

Live, I want to live inspired
Die, I want to die for something

Racing towards the heavens
I fell into a pitch black
I'm moments from landing and I'm
Shaking like a heart attack

Is there time?
Can I turn back?
I made mistakes in the past
Need a chance
Can't say goodbye
Wish I could set things right tonight

Live, I want to live inspired
Die, I want to die for something
Higher than myself
Live and die for anyone else
The more I live I see
This life's not about me

All I know spins out of control
Wonder what's next for a hardened soul
Nothing I earned can save me now
Here in what may be my final hour

Is there time?
Can I turn back?
I made mistakes, well, in the past
Need a chance
Can't say goodbye
Wish I could set things right tonight

Live, I want to live inspired
Die, I want to die for something
Higher than myself
Live and die for anyone else
The more I live I see
This life's not about me

Don't want to leave this world
Knowing I breathed in vain
Looked out for myself
So sorry, so ashamed

Don't want to leave this life
Knowing I barely tried
To chase down all my dreams
That I hid away on the inside

Live, I want to live on fire
Die, I want to burn out brighter
Brighter than the northern lights
Want to live to feel the daylight
The more I give I see
This life's not about me

Album Of The Year

If New Surrender isn't a huge hit for Anberlin, then there is no justice in this world (or at least the music industry). It has crossover success written all over it, and no other band out there deserves it more. The new Jack's Mannequin isn't far behind, either.
