"Passat Dream" as written by and Scott Kannberg....
You know you've got it all wrong
There's no other way to find it
You know you gotta be strong
And I really hope you plan to buy it

'Cause that's the way to Passat, babe
And that's the car to his soul
He will bring you all the millions in gold, child
If you will only let him have his role

Everybody wishes you gone
I've got no time to find it
And the dealer with the jingly song
Will never match my price reduction

'Cause that's the way to Passat, babe
And that's the car to his soul
He will bring you all the millions in gold
If you will only let him have his role

Yeah, you gotta be strong
There's no other way to fund it
All the plantings are young and able
And I hope you find a way to buy it

'Cause that's the way to his heart, babe
And that's the way to his soul
You got to give him millions in gold, child
Before I go the way of the sold

And that's the way to his heart, babe
And that's the way to his soul
You've got to give him millions in gold, child
Before I go the way of the sold

    General CommentWell, some artists prefer their songs not be used in commercials; Pavement might be one of those bands.

    My InterpretationThis is honestly one of the most confusing songs to interpret that I've run across, which is great, I love those. The only way that I can interpret it is that it's a girl attempting to impress a guy. Her manner of doing this is to buy a car to get with him, ala "And that's the car to his soul. He will bring you all the millions in gold, child -- if you will only let him have his role" With "he" being a sorta rotation between the car and the guy she's trying to impress. The song is told from the perspective of the dealer trying to prey on her desperation to get him.

    General Commentdas ist das Auto, um seine Seele

    That is 'that's the car to his soul' in Deutsch language.

    I think there is some comment on the auto industry and destruction caused by obsession with car for transportation and culture. The clash of ideals. The freedom that a car can provide compared to destruction that is required to keep up the car culture. 'All the plantings are young and able - and i hope you find a way to buy it.' This is an interesting line that maybe points to what I am saying.....

    But over the top of everything is the fact that it is Scott Spiral Stairs Kannberg lyrics, and you just know he wants to be off-beat, quirky and maybe even meaningless.

    I mean a Passat is a pretty lame car to be the way to someones soul.

    My Interpretationone of my favorite song by my favorite band
    it's an advice for a girl who wants to impress youth man's heart in terms of modern mechanization and strong believe of german products quality
    with the context of change cause it's the wind obviously
