Full Lyric Sheet to EP1

Andro Queen

now Andro Queen has lost her ring
I think it used to sit right here
encrusted in blue and hard and true
for now I will kiss her finger

have you ever seen Andro Queen
wandering all for her ruby?
one day she'll come in through my window
yes, she gave me her own true pledge

for what's missing I'll sacrifice my flesh
only kissing you is so hard in this wild thresh
that's how it's been with Andro Queen

loving on our bed of flowers
breathing in the smell of her musk
in a moon of milk she is scared, yes, she is
but she shows me under her silk

for what's missing I'll sacrifice my flesh
only kissing you is so hard in this wild thresh
I wave goodbye to Andro

mi aspekti al la cxielo por via reveni
mi aspekti cxe via mano al vidi la ringo
kaj ni will promeni kune al via cambro
nia ami will esti nova
nia ami will esti nova

she's off in a silver rocket
off to the gas and rings of Saturn
off her head she gave me a lock, yes, she did
for my neck a rusted locket

for what's missing I'll sacrifice my flesh
only kissing you is so hard in this wild thresh
for what's missing I'll sacrifice my flesh
only kissing you is so hard in this wild thresh

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

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

Indie Cindy

put this down for the record
it's more or less unchequered

wasted days and wasted nights
made me a fucking beggar
no soul my milk is curdled
I'm the burgermeister of purgatory

look out for that hot plate
guess that's all you got. great
you put the cock in cocktail, man
well I put the tail in -- wait!
watch. me. walk.
blowtorch a hole in that armor
and I don't need the tip

I am in love with your daughter
and though she has no need
I'm the one who's got some trotters
you've many mouths to feed

Indie Cindy
be in love with me
I beg you for to carry me

mixed messages from Sir Naff
please authenticate
just to be sure that you're a sap
set for stun automatica
crap is the operative
locomotive of the longest death

there goes Indie Cindy whose
sails were black when it was windy
we offed ourselves in a lover's pact
we threw ourselves into the sea
well looksie what the wind washed back
as we follow the bouncing ball
they call this dance the washed up crawl

I am in love with your daughter
and though she has no need
I'm the one who's got some trotters
you've many mouths to feed

Indie Cindy
be in love with me
I beg you for to carry me

What Goes Boom?

Fattie had it made like a blade in the sun
like a push in the bush when you got none
ping pong bingo fills a la Ringo
analog bong but it ring wrong
make some room
what goes boom?

I'm a fattie in my caddy with my 'ponic blunt
not a stunted runt looking natty
cozy as a manger Chet Baker in the changer
subs for my dub I think I better
make some room
what goes boom?

Grace in her lace and her stocking
carryin' her bass she really likes to get rocking
oh darlin' Grace are we going to get rocking?

I like that slinky little punky little bit funky
itty bitty chunky right there
little bit lippy a whipped cream hippie
zip and unzippy and I want her
make some room
what goes boom?

Grace in her lace and her stocking
carryin' her bass she really likes to get rocking
oh darlin' Grace are we going to get rocking?
