"Ra" as written by and Wooley Wolstenholme....
Burning fiery furnace in the sky
Burns the ground around us where we lie
Sad old black-faced thunder will you rise
Bring your cloud and shadows to our eyes

Blazing star in heaven, mirror bright
Dry our seas and rivers with your light
Universal sentinel you are
Guide of all who look on from afar

Blazing Ra
God of old now broken and defaced
Punish all who've fallen from your grace
You whose power leaves the deepest scar
Mystic eye of heaven, Amun Ra

    My InterpretationOne of my favourite prog songs. Seems like a bit of fey mysticism at first glance, but I think there's more going on here; note the lines about burning ground, drying rivers and "God of old, now broken and defaced". An early piece of apocalyptic environmentalism? Given their songs about animal cruelty ("Spirit on the Water") and pessimistic anti-war songs ("For No One), it doesn't seem so far-fetched. Whatever the case, it's a magnificent, pretty epic piece of music.
