I'll give this a go for fun, mock away, if you want to:

Nervous Mary (not Indie Cindy)
"Black lung in her hand" - Black's lung? The lung is where singing begins.
"She (Kim) runs but never got away" (from the Pixies)

Wait in the Car
"strategies are for punks" - maybe a comeback strategy, she wasn't feeling it

All Nerve
"you don't know how much I miss you" - being nice to her ex-band mates

Metagoth
"I am the silver" (not the silver snail, though she did co-write Silver)
"silver leaves" (Kim is the silver of the Pixies and she left)

Space Woman (the answer to Andro Queen, perhaps even Kim's vision for that song)
"When you look out at your big light show do you ever want to turn around and go?" - regrets from the stage? something black and kim share?
"You spin in peace" - they both need peace
"hear us on the radio" - Breeders are on the radio a lot more than Pixies

Walking with a Killer
"no desire for holidays" - tired of playing the Holiday Song and the whole "gone away on holiday" thing
"I'm done" - she's done (with the Pixies)

Howl at the Summit
"Howl (BF) at the summit just to keep 'em (fans) coming."
"You (Pixies) may have spirit (to record music again as Pixies) but I'll (Kim) never hear it (IC)."
"You jump off but can you clear it" - an effort was made, but not so great

Archangel's Thunderbird
"Why is the audience not taking the resurrection"
I think that line speaks for itself, not originally meant for 2.0 but applied here

Dawn: Making an effort
Trying a new beginning, takes a lot of work

Skinhead #2
BF is bald, this is BF #2, the 2.0 BF
"Sing sad songs for me" - reference to All I Think About Now

Blues at the Acropolis
This one is about Del tha Funky Homosapien

Anyway, that's all I got for now. Glad to see the two of them still co-creating, albeit from afar.

Mhhh... if you go this way, half of HC is about Deal then

Head Carrier - about how Deal left the band in 2012 the same way BF did in 93.
"Itís deja-vu, itís not like I planned."
"Looks like Iím going where Iíve already been"
"Is this really worth it?"

Balls Backs
"I bet you thought that I was dead and gone. You wouldnít know that somethingís even on"
" And when youíre lying on the silver tracks No difference to me" <-- Deal did some song about Black a few years ago, right ?
" You donít know that youíre a sacrifice - All my tears are turning into ice"
" And people, when the sky is turning (Frank-) black / Youíll know that itís me "

Might as Well Be Gone - about Deal popularity and swapping bass players
" Youíre the chosen one - But I could use a change " (Shattuck of Lenchantin)
" Even golden suns / Find the end of their reign " (ok, you can leave, nobig Deal, bye then)

Oona - about how Deal begged to be in the band in the 80s
" Her place was like an eyrie / The fall seemed very scary / Down to the strand / Please, I wanna be in your band"

All I Think About Now

Plaster of Paris
" You look like a praying mantis / You could say that the bug is man"
" Big joke or a small disaster " Good summary of the 2012 Wales events
" Last chance before they give it the plaster" (no way back)
" Youíre not like the others, you ainít " (well, sure)
" Running down the hill I thought I passed her " --> in the Velouria video, of course

I thought we were all in agreement on that!

If you mash the two albums together it's just like old times.

Oh man! sorry!

Did you make this points re: HC being about Kim in a different thread?

Very good theories here.

Yes in some old HC thread, when lyrics were leaked before the album. I was already trolling a lot back then.

Let's cut the Freud Amateur Hour crap. How about this for an explanation: Thompson is glad to finally be rid of her.

I haven't read as much Freud as you have, so I can't comment if his theories are relevant to this, but as to your explanation, that's exactly what we're saying. But is it true?
