Lyrics:(Hammill)

Horus, the son of Isis, lay in the marshes of Buto,
poisoned by Set.
She
called out to the High God Ra
to kill this evil, that her child may live yet.
Casting aside
her present fears
she called out on the Boat of Millions of years...
Ra came and saw
and
stopped the sun until he had cured
the life of the innocent.

Horus the Good lived in
the North,
in lands of fertility and beauty
but Set stayed in the hard desert,
to him
belonged all drought and perversity.
While he sheds his tears
beneath the Boat of Millions
of years
he fights to kill the hawk,
bearing with him evil and darkness.
But Horus lives
with the sun.

Forever the battle rages,
evil tries to kill the innocent baby
and
only Osiris, the Lord of the Dead,
can eventually save it.
So we must cast aside our future
fears
and call out on the Boat of Millions of years.
The God of Love is on our side
and
with him we shall not die...
there's life in the Sun!
There's life in the Sun!
Only in
violence is the cause lost:
in peace, grey Set can't kill our baby of love.
