Cortez The Killer Lyrics - The Cult

He came dancing across the water 

With his galleons and guns 

Looking for the new world 

In that palace in the sun 

 

On the shore lay Montezuma 

With his coca leaves and pearls 

In his halls he often wandered 

With the secrets of the worlds. 

 

And his subjects gathered 'round him 

Like the leaves around a tree 

In their clothes of many colours 

For the angry gods to see. 

 

And the women all were beautiful 

And the men stood straight and strong 

They offered life in sacrifice 

So that others could go on. 

 

Hate was just a legend 

And war was never known 

The people worked together 

And they lifted many stones 

 

They carried them to the flatlands 

And they died along the way 

But they built up with their bare hands 

What we still can't do today. 

 

And I know she's living there 

And she loves me to this day 

I still can't remember when 

Or how I lost my way. 

 

He came dancing across the water 

Cortez, Cortez 

What a killer. 

 

He came dancing ... 

 

...so that others could go on... 

 

He came dancing across the water 

Cortez, Cortez 

What a killer....
