Sun Ra – The Sun One lyrics
In ancient days of Khem

A Pharaon was praising

The sun above Amon

Osiris, Mother Isis and Thoth

The gods would punish the hybris of Pharao

He wrapped himself in false sunshine

He was the founding father of the only God

But he provoked a fit of rage


Son of the Sun, it was his name

Son of the Sun, the sun will burn your wings

Son of the Sun, beware of Aton

Son of the Sun, your God will let you down

The Sphinx burst into tears

And pyramids are shaking

The precipice is close

When Pharao is losing his faith

Visions of madness led the Pharaon astray

The portents were too ominous

Until this day his curse is still the plague of man

We must defeat the only God


Apep will rise

Apep will come
