Procol Harum – Conquistador lyrics

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

And though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind

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 it's fill

And though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind

Conquistador there is no time
I must pay my respect
And though I came to jeer at you
I leave now with regret
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

And though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind

    This song is about mortality. The song is of a man who muses over the statue of a Conquistador. He comes to jeer at its pretentious haughtiness, but as he nears the statue he finds it in a state of decay. He comes to understand that we are mortal and the things that try to immortalize us are also mortal. No matter what we do, it decays and is forgotten. The sad lot of every being is to be forgotten, no matter what the achievement or belief of self importance--we are forgotten.
