They have killed the great sun jester
Who danced between the stars
They have stripped him of his manhood
Signs of Venus and of Mars

The cynics left him weeping
And the jackals left him torn
And the jester reaches out bind hands
He can touch the stars no more

And he took the stars in his hands
And as he scattered them he'd shout
"I'm the joker of the universe
I'm what it's all about"

Now he's dying in his grief
And the hard men dragged him down
They have killed the wild eyed jester
They have killed the fire clown

Now his blind eyes seek the starlight
And his fingers seek controls
To take him into space again
Where he was both young and old

The dancers stiff with pain
And they've made him kneel too long
And the madness they have driven out
They've left him cold and sane

And he took the stars in his hands
And as he scattered them he'd shout
"I'm the joker of the universe
I'm what it's all about"

Now he's dying in his grief
And the hard men dragged him down
They have killed the wild eyed jester
They have killed the fire clown

He'll never sing his songs again
He'll never dance between the stars again
He'll never laugh again
No, he'll never ever laugh again
Oh, no, no

He'll never laugh again
He'll never laugh again
He'll never laugh again
He'll never laugh again
Oh, no
