In a May 9, 2005 interview with Y100, Rivers Cuomo talked about "Peace:" "This song was written at a time of no peace with me, when I was at the end of my rope. I felt like life had no meaning anymore. I was going out every night and trying to have fun, but it wasn't giving me any real satisfaction. I just started thinking 'I gotta find a way to bring meaning back in my life and recover my sensitivity and creativity, and I need to find some peace.'"

Band Commentary

Scott: I still don’t know how the acoustic guitar really goes. [laughter] I just always think of Rick Rubin in the studio, just moving his head back and forth, rockin’ in the control room. You know, that’s the picture I have about this song. And it felt like it was important for this song to be on the album, as well.
Brian: It’s a great sentiment. It doesn’t come across as being, like…you know, too hippie-ish, which is good, but musically it’s such a simple chord progression that a child could play it and that’s always a good sign, first off, when we don’t have to think about it too much when we play it. I think it’s just a great message. I think we need a song like that these days.
Rivers: Yeah, it’s actually not coming from a “hippie” place at all. So people shouldn’t be worried that now I’m Mr. Peace, or whatever. [laughs] If you listen to the lyrics, I’m actually - 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.



More and more I can't say no
So afraid of letting go
If there's something I can grab
You can bet I'll pay the tab

Counting all the flowers
Waste the precious hours
I need to find some peace

All these problems on my mind
Make it hard for me to think
There is no way I can stop
My poor brain is gonna pop

And I don't have a purpose
Scattered on the surface
I need to find some peace


And all the broken tethers
We can bring together
I need to find some peace
