Black Legend of Aragon sails in from the East
He’s courting the coastline with the greatest of ease
Dagger in his pocket, saber by his side
He’s anchored off the island lust for gold in his eyes

In the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Marie
The empire is expanding across the seven seas
For love of country, in the name of the lord
He’s here to teach the lesson about living by the sword

In fourteen hundred and ninety-two
Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue

Among the natives he’s revered as a god
They covet his horses, his clothing and his arms
So much learn there, witness and absorb
He’ll return to Spain a new man, a conquistador

It’s about contribution, to the state of mankind
To the history of our brothers passed down through the hands of time
What will they say, generations to come?
Will they worship him like a hero through the lands of Christendom?
