The Edge Of Darkness

I've looked into the heart of darkness, where the blood-red journey ends
When you've faced the heart of darkness, even your soul begins to bend
For a week I have been waiting, still I am only in Saigon
The walls move in a little closer, I feel the jungle call me on

Every minute I get weaker, while in the jungle they grow strong
What I wanted was a mission, and for my sins they gave me one
They brought it up just like room service, 'cause everyone gets what they want
And when that mission was all over, I'd never want another one

I know captain that you've done this work before
We've got a problem you can help us all I'm sure
The colonel's gone rogue and his methods are unsound
You'll take a PBR up river, track him down

There's a conflict in every human heart
And the temptation is to take it all to far
In this war things get so confused
But there are some things which cannot be excused

He's acting like a God - an insane lunatic
Your mission - exterminate with extreme prejudice
The route is dangerous and your progress may be slow
Here is the file and it's all you need to know

Solo

Here I am the knife in my hand
And now I understand why the genius must die

Now I stand alone in the darkness with his blood upon my hands
Where sat the warrior the poet, now lie the fragments of a man

I've looked into the heart of darkness, where the blood-red journey ends
When you've faced the heart of darkness, even your soul begins to bend
I've looked into the heart of darkness
