Album: Anarchy My Dear (2012)

  • Lyrics
  • Say Anything frontman Max Bemis has been married to Eisley singer Sherri DuPree-Bemis since April 2009. He wrote this song about his willingness to put up with literally anything rather than lose his wife. "Condemn my race to genocide if it meant that I could lay with you," he croons.
  • So why did Bemis decided to title this song after his band's name? The singer explained to Billboard magazine: "We wanted to have a flagship song, and I think the mixture between not only the fact that it says 'anything' within the song multiple times, but the fact that the song really is a mixture of romantic notions, hopeful notions, and this dark, sort of cynical light - I think that's pretty indicative of what the spirit of our band is."
