"'Cross the Breeze" as written by Kim Gordon, Lee M. Ranaldo, Steven Jay Shelley and Thurston Joseph Moore....
Let's go walking on the water
Come all the way please
I want to know
Should I stay or go?

No need to be scared
Let's jump into the day
I want to know
I think I oughta go

Close your eyes and make believe
You can do whatever you please
I want to know
I think I better go

Let's go walking on water
Now you think I'm Satan's daughter
I want to know
Please let me go!

Just too quick
Now I think I'm gonna be sick
I want to know
Should I stay or go?

I'm trying for the future
It's funny that way
I want to know
I want to know!

I took a look into the hate
It made me feel very up-to-date
I want to know
Should I stay or go?

Hold me tight, down on my knees
So I don't go burning 'cross the breeze
I want to know
I want to know

I want to know
Should I stay or go?

Burning 'cross the breeze
Burning 'cross the breeze

    General CommentThis song is painfully under-rated. I personally think it's the best song off DDN.

    General CommentThis might seem explaination too simple, but I think it's about wanting to know what to do with yourself. She keeps saying 'i wanna know', and makes a comment about the future. She asking someone to come with her somewhere, like she doesn't want to be alone when she's trying to figure things out.

    General CommentTheres alot of drug references in this song and/or images of hallucination:
    "lets go walking on the water"
    etc
    which could also be a biblical reference
    but then there is also the references to relationship's
    "should i stay or go?"
    but that could be about her trying to get off drugs....maybe.

    General Commenti think the majority of SY songs have more drug related references than sexual references, but i'm not saying there aren't any sexual references in their songs.

    General CommentA girl is trying to seduce a guy and is unsure whether or not she's welcome at his place, even during the act she keeps asking whether she should just go home.
