To the east of Java back in eighteen eighty three Stood a peaceful island basking in the sea No one knew the danger lying deep beneath the earth That Mother Nature's victim would sooth the monsters ..?..
Krakatoa The earth...was .. Sunda with a deadly roar When the dust had settled Krakatoa was no more
With a scream of fury the power was released The biggest known explosion the world had ever seen The shockwaves traveled 'round the earth to smash the Richter scale The tidal wave that followed left death and desolation in it's trail
Krakatoa The earth...was .... Sunda with a deadly roar When the dust had settled Krakatoa was no more
Blasting chunks of magma into the stratosphere A thousand scarlet sunsets the land, a sea of fear To the east of Java basking in the sea The sign of Krakatoa is rising from the deep
Krakatoa The earth.. was... Sunda with a deadly roar When the dust had settled Krakatoa was no more
Krakatoa Krakatoa Krakatoa

Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
