Running Wild

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 church bell’s peal
Hungry for gold
Doing as the religious madman told
Religion's knight
Havoc and death caused by pride
Pearls of glass for ingots 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
