"In the Dark Times" as written by and Timothy Gane Malcolm Eden....
In barbarous times you were hung
If you stole sheep to have something to eat
And while you hung the well-to-do
Said, "A job well done"

Women were burnt at the stake
Maybe they'd done nothing
Or slapped someone
They shouldn't have

These were the crimes
In the dark times
These were the crimes
In the barbarous times

Pointless, was well thought out
Some lethal game

These were the crimes
In the dark times
These were the crimes
In the dark times

Mother went out to the shops
And left her baby indoors where she played with matches
The house burnt down
The mother went to jail

Pointless, was well thought out
Some lethal game

These were the crimes
In the dark times
These were the crimes
In the barbarous times
