    General CommentOne of, if not the most beautiful Pixies songs ever. I heard it was about chasing a pig through a forest with your girlfriend, but I could easily be wrong. A great song to fall asleep to, very peaceful.

    General CommentI see this song as a counterpart to "Caribou" (in that the chorus is simply the repetition of an animal's name, and both songs seem to express envy/reverence for the wild and free nature of their lives).

    This song isn't about people at all, it's just a pastoral image of a Javelina wandering about the trees of Sedona, Arizona.

    General CommentThis is a amazing song that really is a overlooked Pixies masterpiece. I think it's about simply just walking along a beach in Arizona enjoying life without worrying about money,jobs etc.

    General CommentIn arizona, the Javelina (a small warthog) is hunted for sport. I think he's referring to that animal in the song. Perhaps he is writing about living out in the wilderness as a Javelina.

    General CommentThere aren't any large beaches in Arizona either. It's mostly desert and plains.
