Wise men talked about it so they say
A feathered serpent god will return some day
And restore peace throughout the land
And they said the time must be at hand
When he will come to save us
Come to bless us every one
In the Temple of the Sun

Montezuma stood in the village square
He was talking to a runner there
Who had just returned from the coast
And he spoke of an invading host
And has he come to save us?
Come to bless us every one
In his Temple of the Sun?

So the gates of the city were open wide
When the Spanish army marched inside
And as they bowed to their returning lords
A priest kneeled down, and a soldier drew his sword.
"We did not come to save you.
We come to destroy you, everyone
In your Temple of the Sun."
