"Road To Ubar" as written by and John/torkington Bray....
The commands of an ancient sultan
whispers through the sandstorm wind of time.
Calling across the centuries
A lost ghost city of the mind.
Far beyond the valley of the kings,
lies buried deep within the sand.
A city of decadence (?) and greed,
that's why the gods condemned the land,
Furthest reaches
recorded time, lay
Ubar city of lust and greed
reading the chiselled inscriptions.
A funerery temple.
Osrisis tributes to the gods
The sultan of (?)
Denied the (?) of this land
Decipher the hieroglyphics
City overcome by lust
Ancient (?)
Angered by the king of sin
Let the holocaust begin
This was the city of Ubar
Watch our modern life return
to ancient ways.
We're on the road to Ubar

    General CommentWhen I first saw the title of this song I thought of my uni days and the trips we'd take to the Ubar (Uni of Canberra bar, where Metal for the Brain was hosted too).

    But yeah listening to the lyrics, it has nothing to do with that ...
