Peace

Album: Make Believe (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • With lyrics like, "All these problems on my mind, make it hard for me to think" and "Counting all the flowers, waste the precious hours," Rivers Cuomo wrote this track in a bid to quiet his own inner turmoil. He explained on the band's official website: "If you listen to the lyrics, I was actually in a place of war, not peace, just total inner struggle and decadence. I was just exasperated and longing for some kind of escape from that sort of lifestyle. So the song is actually not coming from a place of peace at all." >>
