Ocean Man Lyrics
Ocean man, the voyage to the corner of the globe is a real trip
Ocean man, the crust of a tan man imbibed by the sand
Soaking up the thirst of the land
Ocean man, can...

The "oberman" is a reference to Nietzsche's philosophy on Zarathustra. The "oberman", or "overman" or "ubermensch" is a sort of "superman" type of human. It implies the complete transcendence of a regular man into the superior man, who justifies the existence of the human race.

You see, it's a metaphor, that anyone is the ocean man, the ocean man is what you make him, that's the beauty of the ocean man.

I think it means, one of those dudes who always has a surfboard and is very calm and chill about everything. Kinda like a ''beach stoner'' I guess.

They write songs while they’re high... that’s all you really need to know.

Take me by the hand means that he is drowning and that he needs help from the "Ocean Man" (actually a life guard) and that he is the Ocean Man. This work of art perfectly encapsulates the struggle of trying save yourself while drowning.So deep. here is my source http://sanger.dk/.

It's not about the Ocean Man per se. It's about getting help from the Ocean Man.

Ight hear me out. There's this guy and he really- like really really- wanted to go to the ocean, so much so that he engulfs himself within oceanic culture and the atmosphere. This man decides to identify as an ocean and this love for the salty spittoon was founded by a childhood trip. This man is the subject bounded by the song that the two artists continually describe throughout the length of the song. Ween aims to communicate to the listener that they can also consume themselves into the oceanic culture, but this man- this man- has done it the best. He is the Jesus of the ocean if you will... like Poseidon.

Ocean man might mean the ocean god and they are writing this song why they are on drugs.

You guys know that they write their songs whilst they're high, right? I mean, it's most likely a fictional character that rides a surfboard, and is quote in quote, "Chill." I think it's nothing deep or personal, and it's perhaps just a man chilling, whilst riding his surfboard.

"Ocean man, the crust of a tan man imbibed by the sand/Soaking up the thirst of the land" maybe means some kids buries a very fat man that fell asleep on the beach, and the rest, maybe some other fat guy came out of the water and flopped onto the beach, then someone pointed and screamed "BEACHED WHALE!"

They used drugs to create this song.

Dean and Gene have stated that a large number of their songs begin with one of them creating a fictional character in his head and write a song which is essentially a biography for that character. Ocean Man, Pandy Fackler, Voodoo Lady, Frank, Richard Smoker, Big Jilm. I certainly doubt there is any hidden message in Ocean Man, such as "as long as you have the ocean everything can ease". WTF?

Ahh man the song just means that life can be pretty chill but as long as you have the ocean everything can ease.

You know that most of their songs are made when their high.
