Lyrics The Pixies
Where Is My Mind
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind [3x]

Way out in the water
See it swimmin'

I was swimmin' in the Carribean
Animals were hiding behind the rocks
Except the little fish
But they told me, he swears
Tryin' to talk to me to me to me

Where is my mind [3x]

Way out in the water
See it swimmin' ?

With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
If there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind [3x]

Ooooh
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Ooooh
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Ooooh
Ooooh
Press Quotes
(Translation, quote in French here)

On this tour you played with Frank Black. What did you feel ?


Stefan Olsdan : I am a fan for ages and I play "Where Is My Mind" for ages too. To have Frank Black on stage with us, playing with us, it was like ...

Brian Molko : A claim! And now, with the Pixies reformation and as there is a chance we will end up on the same festivals, we will have more limited opportunities to play that song at gigs. Really, we won't cover The Pixies after The Pixies !

Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal, Made in Paris, New'Zic n° 6 (mars/avril), February 12th 2004



(Translation, quote in French here)

Les Inrocks : In ten years, you've multiplied prestigious collaborations. What does it provide you?

Brian Molko : Again, this is an incredible opportunity to be able to work with artists who inspired me - and continue to inspire me. Having the voice of Jane Birkin and mine on the same track (on Smile from the latest album by Jane Birkin), it's important… We will sing with The Cure at Wembley after tomorrow, we should do Without You I'm Nothing. When you sing on stage with Franck Black or Bowie, you want to tell the world "hey hey… Fuck you". There are certainly people on this Earth who think that I am a poor guy, but these collaborations make me think that I'm not doing too bad. And this little voice in my head tells me all the time:''You are a shit, you are a charlatan, you are mediocre…'' Well, in duets like this, it tends to be a little more discreet.

Brian Molko, Les Inrockuptibles, November 2004



P: Do you worry about, say like when you’ve covering a band like The Pixies, do you worry, that you know, that a band like that has such a loyal following, that your people will be.. that people don’t sort of want those songs covered?

Brian: Well too bad, man!. You know, I mean sort of… if you get a bee in the bonnet about that, you know, I think that you should really get a life. You know, if people like Limp Bizkit can get away covering… doing all of these dodgy covers, you know, then we can do a pretty faithful rendition of Where is my mind? and if you don’t like it, you know, then don’t come to the show.

P: Are you fans of theirs?


Brian: Oh, they got me through college. Yeah… We’re doing some shows with them in Germany this year, so we’re very happy about that.

P: Is it one of those things that when you were a teenager with them getting through the thing…  and you sort of think, the idea of playing with a band that was so important to you back then… can you imagine… could you have even imagined that then?

Brian: Absolutely not. And we did some shows in Europe with Frank Black and the Catholics opening for us, and erm, in fact it’s immortalised in our live dvd that’s coming out, and we actually took to the stage with Frank Black to do Where is my mind?, so that’s like the biggest vindication possible… so you’re just kind of like “Screw you, I’m on stage with Frank Black!”. Yeah. It’s like, “I don’t care what you think about me man, you know, look at me now!”

Brian Molko, Triple J, March 19th 2004
