"The Breeze" as written by and Werner/hunter Geier....
Are you moving much too fast?
And the good times that just don't last
If you're always on the go
Make an angel in the snow
And freeze

Do you feel like you're stuck in time?
Forever waiting on that line
If nothing ever moves
Put that needle to the groove

And sing

Is it a dream keeping you awake?
Is it the stillness that makes you shake?
If you need to know for sure
What's on the ocean's floor
You'll sink

Do you like things the way they seem?
Or are you looking behind the scenes?
Well, if you've gotta know
What it takes to make it sow
Just believe

Are there dark parts to your mind?
Hidden secrets left behind?
Where no one ever goes
But everybody knows
It's all right

Do you get dizzy on the ground?
It must be something going 'round
What blows us here today
It'll blow us all away,
The breeze
Ahh, will blow us all away
The breeze
Ahh, will blow us all away
The breeze

    General CommentThis song is about there are so many things that we get caught up in and usually it is something natural and easy that brings us back to normal, such as the breeze. When you realize how taken up you are in something serious, ridiculous and how stressed you are, it is so easy to let go and have something simple take it all away.

    General Commentalso, i was thinking about it today,
    and i thought that this song might actually also mean:
    everyone has problems and everyone goes through feelings through their lives, but in the end we all get the same FATE(name of the album) we all die
    maybe the breeze is a metaphor for death?

    Song MeaningI think this song is about taking time to relax now and then and enjoy the ephemeral nature of life. As in, taking things less seriously and just having a good time for the sake of having a good time. The first few lines:

    Are you moving much too fast?
    And the good times that just don't last
    If you're always on the go
    Make an angel in the snow
    And freeze

    Show this especially for me, like a snow angel is a really idyllic thing that most people who are "always on the go" wouldn't have time for. But then the next stanza is the exact opposite, it's about people who are constantly bored and don't have much to do. AKA "If nothing ever moves, put that needle to the groove." Obviously that's referring to a turn table, and just listening to music, which, haha anyone who enjoys music can relate to. And a lot of this song is about contradictions, as in the next stanza.

    Is it a dream keeping you awake?
    Is it the stillness that makes you shake?
    If you need to know for sure
    What's on the ocean's floor
    You'll sink

    A dream keeping you awake, stillness making you shake? I think these are about feeling out of place, or that something isn't right. Like, stillness wouldn't make a normal person shake, but it's saying does it make YOU shake. The next lines, are sort of a joke about always needing to be right or wanting to be certain all the time. It says "you'll sink" as in, it'll be your downfall, you'll fail with that attitude. The next few lines are the most powerful for me.

    Do you like things the way they seem?
    Or are you looking behind the scenes?
    Well, if you've gotta know
    What it takes to make it so
    Just believe

    I love these, because it has such a message. "Do you like things the way they seem?" is all about people accepting things that they don't truly know about. That's why it says the way they seem, and then it says "Or are you looking, behind the scenes?" or, do you really know the true motives of things going on, and then in response you don't like them. I think the rest is a lot more cryptic and personal, so I'll leave it at that. Amazing song, so much meaning and really poetic. Dr. Dog is awesome!

    General Commenti think this song means that people have a hard time finding things that are solid,
    "the good times just don't last" like good times last while they are happening, nothing ever stays,
    this song kinda reminds me of robert frost's poem nothing gold can stay:
    Nature's first green is gold,
    Her hardest hue to hold.
    Her early leaf's a flower;
    But only so an hour.
    Then leaf subsides to leaf.
    So Eden sank to grief,
    So dawn goes down to day.
    Nothing gold can stay.

    this song is essentailly about people who aren't satisfied with the surroundings they are placed in, and the want to find a crutch to take them away and numb them from reality.
    ("if nothing ever movies put that needle to the groove") ( "make an angel in the snow and freeze")
    Is it a dream keeping you awake?
    Is it the stillness that makes you shake?
    If you need to know for sure
    What's on the ocean's floor
    You'll sink
    people are so anxious about everything, and to figure things out they need to busy (is it the stillness that makes you shake?) and i think the line "if you need to know for sure whats on the ocean floor you'll sink" means they drown in their thoughts basically they think to much that it overcomes them.

    Do you get dizzy on the ground?
    It must be something going 'round
    What blows us here today
    It'll blow us all away,
    The breeze
    Ahh, will blow us all away
    The breeze
    Ahh, will blow us all away
    The breeze


    the breeze is just something that takes away all the misfits/bad thoughts/good thoughts.
    the breeze is like a cleanser that takes everything away,
    idk,
    thats just my opinion,
