Saferwaters

Album: Vena Sera (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about a misanthrope who strives to distance himself from humanity. Said lead Singer Pete Loeffler: The guy is really sick of being a part of the human race, so he says he's crawling back to sea. It's taking an evolutionary mindset. He can't stand being on the earth, so he's basically going back home to the water. >>

  • Marina from Denver, CoThis is my least favorite album of theirs, but they're my favorite band too, so it's still better than everything else out there.
    I never would have guessed that Saferwaters is about a misanthrope. I guess I can make this my anthem, then.
  • Jon from Enumclaw , WaI really love this song and album it's chevelle's best album at least to me.
