All the Fools Sailed Away Lyrics

Some Dio's songs are historical, but I believe what is actually referred to is a metaphor about religion as a whole. Ronnie James Did was someone who believed religion to be a way to enslave people, therefore he had no religion, because of this every one assumed he was either an atheist or a satinist. He was niether he simply believed that there was no religion that was 100% correct and believed that no living man actually knew anything about beyond. The fools referred to are the religious nuts who believe there religion is the only true & correct one.

A great historic song by Ronnie James Dio, about the times when all of the certain kinds of people were ''selfishly driven'' away from God. As Explorers and Conquerors, along with the Jesuits that went all over new lands and the new world. By which found manipulative ways to trade with the Natives Their Iron and STEEL. Meaning their weapons and tools in exchange for the Natives diamonds and gold. By this continuos exchange, created more greed and war that These Fools would die for, some sadly to be called martyrs
