"The Great Sun Jester" as written by Michael Moorcock and Eric Bloom....
They have killed the great sun jester
Who danced between the stars
They have striped him of his manhood
Signs of Venus and of Mars
The cynics left him weapin'
And the jackals left him torn
And the jester reaches out blight
As he can touch the stars no more

And he took the stars in his hand
And as he scattered then he shout
I'm the joker of the universe
I'm what it's all about
And he's got it in his dream
And the hard man drag it out
The have killed the wild eyed jester
They have killed the fire clown

Now is blind I seek the star light
And his fingers seek controls
To take him into space again
Where he was both young and old
The dancers stiffed with pain
And they made him neal to long
And the madness the have driven out
They have left him cold
And singed

And he took the stars in his hand
And as he scattered then he shout
I'm the joker of the universe
I'm what it's all about
And he's got it in his dream
And the hard man drag it out
The have killed the wild eyed jester
They have killed the fire clown

He'll never sing his songs again
He'll never dance between the stars again
He'll never laugh again
No he'll never ever laugh again
Oh, no
He'll never again
He'll never again
He'll never again

    MemoryAccording to a book about BOC that I read a year or two ago, this is a novel related song. The Great Sun Jester and the Fireclown feature in Michael Moorcocks stories "The Fireclown" and "The Transformation of Mavis Ming."

    General Commentis it about the end of everything?
    without the sun, a whole solar system would fall apart on many levels...
