All the Fools Sailed Away Lyrics
In the rising and the falling of the sea
And as we sail along
I never fail to be astounded by the things we'll do for promises
And a song
We are the innocent
We are the damned
We were caught in the middle of the...

Ronnie himself states (when introducing the song at the Miljoona Rock Festival Finland 2006) that the song is about "people believing all the crap that government tells them, and all the crap people around them tell them. You know what happens to them? All the fools sail away"...
Led like sheep and fed fantasy (fake news)while rejecting truth of the righteous... more relevant now than ever!
Ronnie knew what was coming....

He's referring to him being a descendant of esau and modern day Caucasian. The bible says Esaus descendants will be enslaved like they enslaved The Lord's people in 1492 and the transatlantic slave trade. They are the innocent they are the damned hunted by the lion n lamb means most Caucasians don't know what's coming to them. Those who led into captivity will go into captivity

As an April Fools birthday girl, I never ever saw this as political but astrological. I see this as All the Fools sailed away, meaning the Gods of War-Aries either prevail or not. A song is what you perceive it to be. -- Dio Never Dies.

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.
