Conquistadores

by Running Wild

Running Wild is a German heavy metal band, formed in 1976 in Hamburg. They were part of the German metal scene to emerge in the early to mid 1980s. Although the earlier releases contained satanic themes and imagery, Gerald “Preacher” Warnecke, the guitar player of the band, was studying theology at…




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 the churchbell's peal

Conquistadores
Hungry for gold, doing as the religious madman told
Conquistadores
Religions 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.
