Magnu, horse with golden mane, I want your help yet once
Walk not the earth but fly through space as lightning flash
or thunders race
Swift as the arrow from the bow, come to me so that no one
can know.
Sunbeams are my shafts to kill all men who dare
imagine ill,
Deceit that fears the light of day fly from the glory
of my ray,
Good minds open and take new light until we diminish
by the reign of night
A burning brand was seen to fall, it lit the
darkness of the hall,
The flying hoofbeats circling in, come to me and
let us spin.

    General CommentI believe 'Warrior on the Edge of Time' is very influenced by Michael Moorcock's books.
    He did some of the vocals didn't he?

    Sounds like a warrior calling his battle horse. That's what I'll always hear when I listen to it anyway.

    Hawkwind = Class

    General CommentThis entire album is a psychadelic experience, overshadowed by the great works of Pink Floyd, but excellence in its own right. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out what the album is about.

    General CommentI'd have to disagree, for me Hawkwind at their best are a head above Pink Floyd. The 'Warrior on the Edge of Time' album is one of my all-time favourites.

    General CommentThis actually is referring to the frequency of light from the sun. "Magnu, horse of golden mane," refers to the sun; fast as light the voice beckons the sun to send him it's power that he might smite the men of darkness who fear the power of the light. It talks here about those "dark" beings who usurp the pure light of the sun and polute it with their evil intent of keeping we humans as slaves, far removed from our birthright of glorious lordship over this planet, and third dimensional realm.
