RUNNING WILD: Conquistadores

Conquistadores Lyrics:
Exploring the seas to conquer new lands
Troops arrayed by the church
Sanctified and blessed they set out
Crusaders, gentiles' scourge

They fight, they kill, they rape
Under the banner of the 'holy' church
They hunt, they lie, they cheat, they steal
Doing dirty deeds under churchbell's peal

Conquistadores
- Hungry for gold, doing as the religious madman told
Conquistadores
- Religion's knight, havoc and death caused by pride

Pearls of glass for ingets of gold
Violence, force and deceit
Taking the wealth or the Indian's life
Their way of feeding their greed

Heathen must turn to Christianity
It's like 'believe or die'
Arrogance and blindness, religion's force
Believers never ask the reason why


About Running Wild:
Running Wild is one of a few German bands to emerge in the early/mid 1980s (along with Helloween, Rage, Blind Guardian, Grave Digger, etc). The music they play is compilation of heavy, power and speed metal. The band has carved its niche in the metal world as the first "pirate metal" band, a theme which took off with the release of Under Jolly Roger in 1987 (thus abandoning the paganic imagery of their earlier work). The band is still active today. (more)
