Lyrics:

Drowning here in Summer’s Cauldron 
Under mats of flower lava 
Please don’t pull me out this is how I would want to go 
Breathing in the boiling butter 
Fruit of sweating golden Inca 
Please don’t heed my shout I’m relax in the undertow 

When Miss Moon lays down 
And Sir Sun stands up 
Me I’m found floating round and round 
Like a bug in brandy 
In this big bronze cup 
Drowning here in Summer’s Cauldron 

Trees are dancing drunk with nectar 
Grass is waving underwater 
Please don’t pull me out this is how I would want to go 
Insect bomber Buddhist droning 
Copper chord of August’s organ 
Please don’t heed my shout I’m relax in the undertow 

When Miss Moon lays down 
In her hilltop bed 
And Sir Sun stands up 
Raise his regal head 
Me I’m found floating round and round 
Like a bug in brandy 
In this big bronze cup 
Drowning here in Summer’s Cauldron
