I Get It

Album: Vena Sera (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • The band has described this song as a motivational cry to those afraid to chase their dreams. Some of the lyrics indicate that the song could be about how Peter and Sam Loeffler feel about their brother, Joe, who played bass in Chevelle and left after their 2004 album This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In). The beginning states, "So you say you're ignored? As it is, well give us your sad, sad trip" which could sarcastically be chastising him for complaining about not getting enough spotlight. >>

  • Jon from Enumclaw , WaI love this song so much it's sad it's such an under rated and under played song on the radio Chevelle kicks ass!!
  • Hannah from Annapolis,I love this song. Chevelle is so awesome. I think this song is about how a person can be so into themselves to think that the world should be revolved around them OR the world's out to get them. Like they just complain and complain about how everyone hates them and they just drown in their self pity and expect every one else to drown with them. So then Peter Loeffler is singing this whole song in sarcastic pity for this very "unfortunate" person saying "you're right i get it it all makes sense you're the perfect person so right so wrong" it's kind of like he's saying i'm so sorry i never realized that you're perfect and i should bow down to you even though clearly you're wrong and you suck.
  • Joey from Westville, NyBad ass song. I think it's just about anytime in life were someone tries to explain something to you, when you already have concrete knowledge of the situation.. aware that arguing will go no where.."your right, I get it.."
  • Jamee from Oklahoma City, OkThanks, Chevelle for such an awesome song.

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
