Xerces
Deftones Lyrics


Universe surrounds
When you're ready
It waits
For us to
To leave this earth
Come on, they're calling your name
Out

I don't know
I could stay or leave
Right away
'Cause the comet can take us
All the way through

Goodbye
Say Heaven
Know no one
I'll be waving
Goodbye
Say Heaven
Know no one
I'll be waving

Goodbye
Reason to see
Everything looks the same
I don't know
If the change made was great
Cause the craving remains the same

Goodbye
Say Heaven
Know no one
I'll be waving
Goodbye
Say Heaven
Know no one

I'll be waving
(Goodbye) I'll be waving
I'll be waving
(Goodbye) I'll be waving
I'll be waving
(Goodbye) I'll be waving
I'll be waving
I'll be waving
(Goodbye)

Xerces - corrected lyrics
_
Universe (surrounds you)
When you're ready it waits (for us to) leave this earth.
Come on, they're calling your name out...
I don't know, I could stay or leave
Either way, 'cause the comet can take us, all the way through...
Goodbye
Safe, heaven, new home
I'll be waving,
Goodbye
Safe, heaven, new home
I'll be waving, goodbye
Return to see, everything looks the same
I don't know if the change it made was great,
'cause the craving remains the same
Goodbye
Safe, heaven, new home
I'll be waving
Goodbye
Safe, heaven, new home
I'll be waving goodbye, I'll be waving...
I'll be waving...
Goodbye

I believe the song refers to the extinction of species at the hands of mankind, the names of such species referred to in 'calling your name out', and that, even though we can see how our activities are killing off entire genera, just like the comet did for the dinosaurs, we don't change our actions, and the craving (the need to expand our species and control the planet) continues unabated. Heaven remains the only safe place to remain. The title, Xerces, refers to a species of butterfly indigenous to San Francisco (Xerces Blue, Glaucopsyche xerces) which was made extinct in 1941 due to human population expansion.

These guys are masters at creating atmospheric music while still retaining the heaviness of their earlier stuff. Their songs are so structured and well composed.

I call it hippy or psychedelic metal and I love it.

@J. T it's the language of god

So underrated … but I kind of like it that way. But they deserve to be exposed to the world. Everyone needs this band in there life if they listen to the whole discography and don’t like anything then F them lol. I have a new favorite Deftones song everyone now and then I’ll just play through and then loop a song for a few days and just think. And smoke of course :)

Here in 2020 to remind everyone that SNW is a criminally underrated album

@Leg3ndKilla687 play whatever makes you feel something. We're all so consumed by distraction. Play music that wakes you up

@adrenaline Saw them in New Jersey and when they played Beware I felt like I was the only one going ape shit when that break down hit. So underrated.

It's 2077 and can still confirm.
