about

Debut EP from Minneapolis duo featuring vocalist Mona and Makr (of To Kill A Pretty Bourgeoisie.)
"Father You See Queen's music is very saturnine and mercurial, and while the sound churns with a dark intensity, Tollefson's dulcet vocals often provide a vibrant edge to the songs, even when the lyrics are as doleful as the music itself."
City Pages, Jan. 23, 2012

Track Name: Ocean
I swim the ocean
To meet you in the sea
And no devotion
Can satisfy your need

Where do you go when I'm not with you?
What do you see when I can't see you?
What do you know that I don't know too?
What do you mean when I'm not there too?

You're always in motion
I want you to be free
But now the sea is frozen
And I want us to leave

Where do you go when I'm not with you?
What do you see when I can't see you?
What do you know that I don't know too?
What do you mean when I'm not there too?

I swim the ocean
To meet you in the sea
And no devotion
Can satisfy your need
Track Name: Teratoma
Hands, the hands, the hands that led him
Toes, the toes, the toes that tracked us
Tongue, the tongue, the tongue that listed
Didn't think we weren't anonymous
Thought we could hide in anonymous

Eyes, the eyes, the eyes that gave away
The mind, the mind that analyzed
The legs, the legs wrapped up in
Didn't think we weren't anonymous
Thought we could hide in anonymous

Teeth, the teeth, the teeth connected
Flesh, the flesh, the flesh protected
Bones, the bones, the bones that echoed
Didn't think we weren't anonymous
Thought we could hide in anonymous

Hang up the phone
Now you're not someone's daughter
Tear up the mail
Now she's not your old lover
Turn up the radio
Now we're not louder
Can you bear/bare the naked sounds of others?

Track Name: We Give and Give and You Take and Take and Take and Take
You need another rainy day
Like you bleed in clouds and shades of gray
For all that you do
I believe too
We get tonight for today

Who needs a morning after?
The dream will warm us faster
Your vision is true
And I know it too
We get tonight for today

Don't let the moon go down on it
Don't let the sun come out on
What's honest to you
I see it too
We get tonight for today

Don't smuggle words already known
The struggle passes on its own
The moment we knew
We'll see it through
We get tonight for today

Don't the moon go down on it
Don't let the sun come up on
The moment we knew
Our vision was true
We get tonight for today

/ / /

The moment we knew
The vision was true
We don't have to prove
We know what to do
And you see it too
And I know it too
We're living tonight for today

/ / /

No morning after
Dreams warm us faster
We're living tonight for today
Don't let the moon go down on it
Don't sun come up on it

Don't let the sun come up on it
Don't let the moon go down on it
Track Name: Don't Be Mad at Me
I wear my slippers when
I'm afraid of myself
And when I open my eyes
There is someone to yell
So I can lay me down to sleep
May I return with my voice to keep

I wear my headphones when
I want a new history
I wear a mask when
I want an old mystery
So I can set my culture to ferment
I lay new seeds into the firmament

I wear a watch when
I want to hide my roots
And when the echoes return
I wear my boots
And when I run they chime in sets of three
That can be sung in any master key

I wear my mittens when
I want to feel my dreams
I wear a scarf to
Hide when it's what it seems
It keeps me warm against my own cool gaze
And if I don't pause, then I can keep the pace
Track Name: Edmund
At the top of the hill
With only time to kill
We'll let out the clutch and roll

A white canvas clean
Covers a frozen stream
Let out the clutch and roll

And our faith will wait
On frozen days
The fish will be drunk on
Daiquiris of our guts
Let's re-baptize
This flow brought by tide
Our tender hearts will freeze like
Cherry ice cream

By our boss we've been beat
We've got a maker to meet
Let out the clutch and roll

Our lives have been in repeat
Let's have a day at the beach
Let out the clutch and roll

And our faith will wait
On frozen days
The fish will be drunk on
Daiquiris of our guts
Let's re-baptize
This flow brought by tide
Our tender hearts will freeze like
Cherry ice cream

Well it's lovely weather
To preserve forever
Let out the clutch and roll

And the water's fine
To put a stop on time
Let out the clutch and roll

Our faith will wait
On frozen days
The fish will be drunk on
Daiquiris of our guts
Let's re-baptize
This flow brought by tide
Our tender hearts will freeze like
Cherry ice cream

Our lives have been perverse
Let's begin in reverse
Let out the clutch and roll

At the top of the hill
With our own time to kill
Let out the clutch and roll
