Boats: Raft

Pavement: Raft


"Well, you mesmerize me
Stop criticizing me
You know, I'm solo that way
And I'm heading for the Cape"

I'll be darned if I know what Steve Malkmus is meaning when he sings. I have a feeling that he's okay with that, though. It isn't just this song, either: Pavement seems to have some of the most inscrutable lyrics ever invented. It almost seems the intention. It doesn't bother me, though- It's fun ascribing one's own interpretations!

"Raft" does mention a raft, an ocean (of honey), a splash and The Cape, so it's enough of a boat song for me!
