Conquistador, your stallion stands in need of company
And like some angel's haloed brow you reek of purity
I see your armor-plated breast
Has long since lost its sheen
And in your death mask face
There are no signs which can be seen

/ Am D7 G G7 / / A Dm / G Am / A Dm / G Am / 

Though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind

/ Am F7 / /

Conquistador, a vulture sits upon your silver shield
And in your rusty scabbard now the sand has taken seed
And though your jewel-encrusted blade
Has not been plundered still
The sea has washed across your face
And taken of its fill

{Refrain twice}

Conquistador, there is no time, I must pay my respects
And though I came to jeer at you, I leave now with regrets
And as the gloom begins to fall
I see there is no, only all
And though you came with sword held high
You did not conquer, only die
