"Another Toe" as written by and Charles Thompson....
I have a drink I start to sink
I put my toe in the ocean
I have a drink I start to sink
Another toe in the ocean

Down on the shelf an elf I saw
I took his picture he was waving
I passed again and now they're gone
I think my picture is worth saving

No more waiting for a new day
You've got to swim sometimes
I'll be here for the rest of my life
Up in the land of green
Making love in the cool, black sand
Thinking where I've been
I put my toe in the ocean
Another toe in the ocean

Merry making with the fairies
Going down to the onion patch
To you and me to shining seas
I see the lights of Edward Thatch

No more waiting for a new day
You've got to swim sometimes
I'll be here for the rest of my life
Up in the land of green
Making love in the cool, black sand
Thinking where I've been
I put my toe in the ocean
I have a drink I start to sink
Another toe in the ocean

I have a drink I start to sink
I put my toe in the ocean
I have a drink I start to sink
Another toe in the ocean
I have a drink I start to sink
Another toe in the ocean

    My InterpretationGot to be about revivifying Los Pixies as record producers. The ocean into which Black Francis drove his car in Wave of Mutilation (fuck!) 25 years ago is the titular domain of the "elf I saw" and "Making merry with the fairies" - the onion patch I shudder to speculate on, but the land of green and cool black sand might refer to getting paid, and whatever dark shore he's moored at. Edward Thatch was better known as Blackbeard, the pirate of the Caribbean.

    Whatever. It's all good, Deal or no Deal... the absence of Simon Larbalestier's photography is frustrating on EP1 but it's a different industry now and they are, as often quoted, "just a bunch of guys." Puneta!
