Burning Times

 

Burning Times

Their man-made faith was the darkness

binding them to their senseless fear

Trapped by their very ignorance

They shut out the light so clear

Like sheep they banded together

Unable to think on their own

And the evil that they hunted

lived in minds of solid bone

With water, and stone, they tortured

many an innocent being

They named as Devil\'s disciples

condemning them without seeing

Some souls they tormented and burned

While tying them bound to bare stakes

Frenzied they demanded fresh flesh

Not once did they own their mistakes

In many countries it did happen

So let\'s not forget our dear kin

Or the burning times so shameful

Or the reasons behind this sin!
