xies -- NIMROD'S SON
(From the 'Come On Pilgram' album)
Still not sure what this one means (of course, that goes for
most every Pixies song) but you could certainly guess that
Black Francis isn't too crazy about his parents. And of course
I've murdered the lyrics again.

One night I upon my motorcycle
And smashed my body so that

The joke is not upon me
In my motorcycle mirror
I think about the life I've had
And how my soul's in pink[?]
and the holes where I had bled
My image spoke to me
Yes to me and upped and said
'You are the son of incestuous union'
One two three
Now my head is clear
My bought
My daughter's pure
My son is whole
Land of plenty, land of fun
To find out I'm Nimrod's Son
Oh bury me far away please
Bury me
The joke is not upon me
