Zero finds himself in an alternate reality, where he is drawn to Octavia, whom he somehow recognizes, and meets the rabbit-headed woman.



Oh, you must be Octavia
‘Cause I recognize your wings
They’re just like in those pictures
That we found with ancient things
Yes, you must be Octavia
Bejeweled in diamond spurs and rings
Seeking answers from the one
Who makes the crickets sing

The rabbit-headed woman said
To go down to the water’s edge
Where roaches creep with siren’s heads
To sing the praises of the dredge
The rabbit-headed woman said
To go down to the water’s edge
Where cockroach people dance in line
To honor the new-fallen dead

Octavia – sweet Insect Queen
Making babies night and day
Thirsting for the in-between
Lurking in the docking bay
You must be Octavia
Reveal to me your wicked taste
Come for me, Octavia
Entangled in your love embrace
Lyrics ©2006 Andrew L. Jackson
