On the dark side of the volcano
Under the old banyan tree
I used to be a princess, you know
But now I drink too much and I spread disease

Some sailors kidnapped my sister
But I'm going to work to bring her back
And I'll tell you more
I called out, "Hey!"
I said, "Hey! Come on over, Mister! Come to the Krakatowa whore!"

Cast off the rust my dear cosmologist
Cast off the rusty handcuffs and I will grant your wish!

Slavery is what you did to me.
Bravery! Such a mystery.
I've seen Satan's image on a turtle shell
Floating in the sea.

Inside the vessels inscriptions are made
Then the spirits are unleashed
They'll come for you now!
Then we'll bury you in the garden later

Slavery is what you did to me.
Bravery! Such a mystery.
I've seen Satan's image on a turtle shell
Floating in the sea.
