Songfacts®:

  • This was the first single to be taken from Illinois based rock band Chevelle's fifth studio album, Sci-Fi Crimes.
  • Drummer Sam Loeffler told Vancouver radio station 99.3 The Fox that this song's subject matter reflects the quirky themes of Sci-Fi Crimes. He explained that the song is a "kind of play on words. It's saving the environment. It's a joke about saving the environment and it's about literally taking the earth, and putting it into jars to save it for later. It's very tongue in cheek."
