"El Conquistador" as written by and G. Brooker K. Reid....
Conquistador your stallion stands in need of company
And like some angel's haloed brow
You reek of purity
I see your armor plated breast
Has long since lost its 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 sheath
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 its 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
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
And though I hoped for something to find
I could see no maze to unwind

    My InterpretationMany lovers of this song on the internet but many question the words 'Only all' and 'No Maze to unwind".
    The lyrics are great even if amorphous.
    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 :
    Only all.. ?
    I am not the great Reid so I can only speculate:
    Like one questioner wrote it should have been aureole (a halo or cloud of angels) but I think the answer lies in the lyrics just before and after the line ,’(as the gloom begins to fall’), as the feeling of sadness and remorse comes down on me, I see there is no ,nothing left , (all or nothing, no prisoners taken, he risked everything). You did not conquer only die.
    I don’t believe they are mocking the chivalry but admiring the gumption or lust for life of those who go into the world full of spit
