    General CommentYes, Cortes did the 'hard thing' and burned his ships so his mutinious men had no other choice but to follow him on his trail of conquest. But IMO he was just doing what he had to do--it was rough times. Also, the Aztecs were pretty brutal themselves (cutting the heart out of a live person? Sounds pretty ruthless to me). Historical inaccuracies aside, its a great song--one of Neil's best. Shouldnt overanalyze anyway, just sit back and enjoy. :)
