"Conquistador" as written by and Jared Leto....
This is the fight to the death
Our holy war
A new romance
A Trojan whore

We will, we will, we will rise again

This is a fight for the day, night, black or white
A victory dance, a burning riot

We will, we will, we will rise again

Yeah!

Woah, say a prayer
Yeah, say a prayer

I am the, I am the best,
She claimed and more
A battle-scarred conquistador

We will, we will, we will rise again

This is a fight for our love, lust, hate desire
We are the children of the great empire

We will, we will, we will rise again


This is a fight to the death
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
This is a fight to the death
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
This is a fight to the death
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
This is a fight to the death
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
This is a fight to the DEATH!

(We will, we will, we will rise again)
(We will, we will, we will rise again)

Hey, hey, say a prayer
Oh oh oh oh
Hey, hey, say a prayer
Oh oh oh

This is a fight to the DEATH!

    My InterpretationIt's a take on the Trojan war waged against the city of Troy by the Greeks, after Paris of Troy takes Helen from her husband Menelaus, king of Sparta. Helen is the 'Trojan Whore' here, since she's in love with Paris and willingly leaves her husband for a Trojan. "It's a "new romance". "I am the, I am the best, She claimed and more, A battle scarred conquistador." That's Paris talking about Helen, himself, and their lust/love relationship. He also has hate for Helen's husband. The Trojans and Greeks hate each other. Therefore... "This is a fight for love, lust, hate, desire." Helen is eventually retrieved. The Greeks take Troy via the Trojan horse they hide in and burn Troy to the ground. "A victory dance, a burning riot." "We are the children of the great empire". Well, Greece was a great empire, as many rulers got together in Greece to destroy Troy in a ten years war... and it was a "fight to the death". The use of the term 'Trojan Whore' give this one away... but that's my interpretation. ;-)

    General CommentMany of the songs on this album seem to me like they reflect a song or multiple from This Is War. I think this one relates quite closely to Vox Populi (A Call to Arms). That was my favourite non-single on TIW and I think this is becoming my favourite song on LLF+D!
