(Mackenzie / Kenny-Smith / Cavanagh / Craig / Harwood / Walker)

Snout of a jackal and a tail of a snake
Slithers and slinks through the desert, awake
Gorges on moonbeams and bathes in quantum foam
Unchallenged in the infinite unknown

Tornado bore down and lifted him high
Throwing Set around with a windy cry
His bones did shatter and his flesh did rend
But still, the god did not bend

Osirus of Geb, of Nut and dead, dutifully did what he was beset

Slay the mighty Set
Slay the mighty Set
Slay the mighty Set…

Governs sandstorms with but a gesture
Squeezing day into night with supernatural pressure
God of duality and king of the fight
Right eye the sun and left the moon's light

His followers screamed
His enemies cheered
As they watched their golden god disappear
Be unto your storm with a final breath
Set, it’s time to meet your death

Osiris of earth, of sky, and birth
Cut the cord
Kill the king and reset

Slay the mighty Set
Slay the mighty Set
Slay the mighty Set…

The god of death and rebirth too
Out with the old and in with the new
Ashes to gashes
The past of new life is made
Brightened up the shadows
Light up the shade
Horus gave Set the downstairs snip, snip
Poked out his eyes and ripped it to pieces
Eighty years of conflict
Lucifer inverted
Slender usurper
Piece of work
Struggling stranglehold akin to poison and going for broke
An eye for a sun
And an eye for the moon
Love letter death threats written in the tomb

The seed is set
The seed is set

Slay the mighty Set
Slay the mighty Set
Slay the mighty Set…

…extended mix only…


The painter of death, the puppeting hand
Colours all upon the canvas of their aeons expanse
Sucking starlight from distant planets
In spheres of dying fireballs of heavens they dance

That god brought about a hellish era of ten brilliant bodies burning stellar
This dragon never felt any bloodguilt
Drink the fuckin’ gas and kill
