Peaceful The World Lays Me Down

Album: Peaceful The World Lays Me Down (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Charlie Fink told The Sun newspaper August 8, 2008 why he made this the title track: "The title song was perfect for the album name as it best explains what I'm trying to say. It's the centerpiece of the album and condenses my philosophies on life into five-and-a-half minutes." Fink added that the album explores the themes of love, death, time and friendship, "without drawing any conclusions on any of those subjects."
