DO NOT SPEAK AGAINST THE SUN

You were born on Albion
You were born to be a son
And, I know you are immune
To the mystic overtune
Do not speak against the sun

Now, the fifth war has begun
'Tween Mogul and Oberon
And our women touch the Earth
To begin a new rebirth
Do not speak against the sun

Here, the force of Helicon
Fights against the Myrmidon
And I know they'll try to save
All the wretched galley slaves
Do not speak against the sun

Send us to Oblivion
In the centred Octagon
For, I'm sure that if he knew
Our father would bestrew
Do not speak against the sun

Brave Apollo guards our son
From the halls of Parthenon
And the sun-god in our life
Aphrodite is his wife
Do not speak against the sun
