I traveled far and wide through many different times,
What did you see there?
I saw the saints with their toys,
What did you see there?
I saw all knowledge destroyed.
I traveled far and wide through many different times.

I traveled far and wide through prisons of the cross,
What did you see there?
The power and glory of sin,
What did you see there?
The blood of Christ on their skins,
I traveled far and wide through many different times.

I traveled far and wide and unknown martyrs died,
What did you see there?
I saw the one sided trials,
What did you see there?
I saw the tears as they cried,
They had tears in their eyes,

Tears in their eyes,
Tears in their eyes,
Tears in their eye.

    General CommentThis song is about organized religion.

    It starts off talking about organized religion being a roadblock to progress in many instances through time. Then it makes a reference to Jesus Christ and his execution for being different and preaching something that was new at the time. Then it talks about the one-sided trials and 'unknown martyrs' who died...perhaps a reference to the Inquisition?
