"Graze" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....





people should not be afraid

we came to the earth to graze

no shortcuts to the face this means you

a child gives you his shoes

people should not be afraid

we came to the earth to graze

if it slithers into the haze

it can't be true

a child gives you his shoes

In the early morning cut her down

this pill she needs your love

forget your mother and your father

they aren't important son

We came to the earth to graze

everyone's diggin' in

now there's no time to live

live

people should not be afraid

the artist does figure eight's

but will it stand the test of time

or will it rot

like the mission that tried too hard

in the early morning, cut her down

this pill, she needs your love

forget your mother and your father

you'll fall apart inside

    General Commenti feel this song is tongue-in-cheek, stating that we were put here to consume the earth, and we're these greedy little animals just consuming everything in site that we forget what's really around us.

    My InterpretationI think it's about how selfish we all are. I'll start with this verse -
    In the early morning, cut her down
    This pill, she needs your love
    Forget your mother and your father
    They aren't important, son

    Basically this verse is a kep part to the songs interpretation - basically it speaks of addiction, the pill symbolizing the both drug addiction and the addiction to sex or the persons girlfriend or lover which is all they seemingly care about. It's just one part of their greed that consumes them. They don't care about their mother/father or anyone else. Sex, greed and drugs are all that run their existence and priorities. Once someone is so thrown into addiction of any kind they can't really live a healthy existence and their entire life becomes a meaningless process, like grazing instead of well, living. They graze of the fruits of the land without contributing to the world in any way. They basically become a void of a person, a vessel with no purpose of existence or matter.
