"Pleiades" as written by Jerry Wayne Gaskill, Doug T. Pinnick, Ty Ryan Tabor, William S. Taylor and Dale Richardson....
When I look up at the stars at night
What could I find beyond the light
A hundred million worlds that we ignore
Who can restrain Pleiades's
Or know the laws of heavenly's
How many times have we been wrong before
Far off in the field I see a castle
Today the people gather at the pole
He tried to tell us all the world was spherical
They burned his body but not his soul

    General CommentAs an addition to my previous comment, i would also like to add that i believe this song is sung from first person point of view of Galileo.

    The last verse is him witnessing the torture of 'non-believers' (including burnings) at the hands of the Catholic Church during the inquisition. Most likely during his house arrest.

    Non-believers were often tortured (in attempts to 'convert them') or killed via beatings, floggings, burnings, and other human torture.

    Galileo himself was persecuted, but continued to research and innovate even in light of his shameful treatment by the Church.
