Lyrically, “Crash” tells the stereotypical story of tourism in a coastal paradise, where the locals try to please the Gringo (man), but he will inevitably “crash”, a metaphor for death and an end to the power hierarchy which exists in society between humans. Most importantly, recognizing that the destruction and domination of nature is an illusion, we are only destroying ourselves. The wave’s crash represents the transformative power of nature to which we will all return. The song symbolizes the freedom we realize when we embrace our insignificance. By letting go of the myths we hold about ourselves, and allowing our egos to crash, we find peace. Death is the ultimate equalizer, we will return, like the waves to the ocean.
