Jagged guitars, echoing double track vocals, and possibly the best lyric ever in "You'll think I'm dead, but I sail away" make this one of my favorite songs on one of the best albums filled with them.

One of the most catchy and accessible Pixies songs but still amazing

Check out these lyrics: "I've kissed mermaids, rode the El Niño / Walked the sand with the crustaceans / Could find my way to Mariana / On a wave of mutilation." I couldn't tell you what a wave of mutilation is, but it sounds appropriately ominous. Then again, this isn't really one of the Pixies' most ominous songs--it's actually a heavenly little slice of deranged pop. I have no idea what it's about, though.

Calmed down a tad. Still upbeat, but less screaming. I like it a lot.

Cool song. The distorted guitars really take the forefront here.
