Gonna need help with the lyrics on this one, let me know what you guys think!

Saint Nazaire (confirmed by band crew member that the name is Saint Nazaire, namesake taken from the town in France when the band toured through France on the Head Carrier tour)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C_hkW23eCc

LYRICS (?)

Down at the rocks at Saint Nazaire
I take the bottle and a fucking prayer (?)
I'm washed out in the greasy tide (?)
I went down on the selkie bride(brine)(?)
something something, her eyes are dead(red)(?)
she smells like spit...something something (?)
she lost her cool, but I like her style
i lost my head, but i like your style

I'm all done talking to you
and I don't want to be true
I'm all dine talking to you

Something something (?)
Down at the rocks at Saint Nazaire
something something (?)
I washed out, never going back

I'm all done talking to you
and I don't want to be true
I'm all done talking to you

I'm all done talking to you
and I don't want to be true
I'm done with talking to you

This version may have clearer vocals (and different second verse with same first two sentences))

Studio version of this one song just dropped into my iTunes account. Odd. Why would they release another single less than two days before the full release?

Anyway, below are the lyrics currently on https://genius.com/Pixies-st-nazaire-lyrics

I think the "fucking prayer" bit is wrong, it sounds more like "funky fair" but that's not it either. I suspect it's something else completely, probably some obscure reference or another. Any clues?



[Verse 1]
Down at the rocks at St. Nazaire
I took a bottle and a fucking prayer
I washed out with the greasy tide
I went down on the Selkie bride

[Verse 2]
Look how he's dead and her eyes all black
Smells like spliff and Armagnac
She lost her coat, but I like her style
She lost her head, but I like her smile

[Chorus]
I'm all done talking to you, oh
And I don't wanna be true, no
I'm all done talking to you

[Verse 3]
I took a bottle and a fucking prayer
Down at the rocks at St. Nazaire
Look how he's dead and her eyes all black
I washed down, never coming back

[Chorus]
I'm all done talking to you, oh
And I don't wanna be true, no
I'm done with talking to you

I'm all done talking to you, oh
And I don't wanna be true, no
I'm done with talking to you

I hear “her dad is dead and her eyes are black”

I also hear “I took a bottle and a fuck-me prayer”

Listened to the official track this morning on the tube. Gotta say that I already like some of the live versions better, particularly this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C_hkW23eCc

the intro gives me chills.

Having said that, the song rocks, Frank Black is the law, and we are fortunate to have new tunes like this coming out on the reg!

P.S. Frank has said repeatedly lately that if up to him he would release an album every year. Should the forum start a go fund me page and help him do it?

Would have been crazy if they named the album Selkie Bride.

No. Charles even refers to that in the podcast, I believe episode 12 or 11?

But yeah, can you imagine the energy around here when the news story broke that the Pixies' next album is called "Selkie Bride"?

Selkie Bride would have been a great title

"Eyrie" is in Oona, so technically this album could be "After the Eyrie" or "Beyond the Eyrie"
