about

A cover of a rare, unreleased Judas Priest song performed circa 1975.

lyrics

Eloquent sun is pouring out her heart to every living thing
And no one cares, but while she's there, existence is getting you in
Yet every day, a piece of her is gone
Gone for good, never to return
So she sighs and slowly cries
Cause soon she knows she'll cease to burn

Mother, mother sun - Thank you for what you gave us
Mother, mother sun - I know that soon you'll leave

The rays of her, the sun had gone
The face of her upon the shore
And through her eyes the sun's for the hurting sky

Recoiling in her shining self, she searches desperately for peace
Then she knows and as anger grows, she starts to swell, praying for release
So now her body blasts the sky
Every age on her face
Then there's born by each shadow, trees reflecting into space no longer

Mother, mother sun - Thank you for what you gave us
Mother, mother sun - I know that soon you'll leave

The rays of her, the sun had gone
The face of her upon the shore
And through her eyes the sun's for the hurting sky
