E5             D5              E5       C5 D5
 I've looked into the heart of darkness
E5           D5             E5    C5 A5
 Where the blood-red journey ends 
E5            D5                 E5      C5 D5
 When you've faced the heart of darkness 
E5          D5            E5   C5 A5
 Even your soul begins to bend 

E5      D5              E5     C5 D5     
 For a week I have been waiting
E5          D5         E5  C5 A5 
 Still I am only in Saigon 
E5              D5           E5    C5 D5
 The walls move in a little closer
E5            D5          E5  C5 A5
 I feel the jungle call me on

E5      D5           E5    C5 D5
 Every minute I get weaker 
E5              D5              E5    C5 A5
 While in the jungle they grow strong 
E5        D5           E5    C5 D5
 What I wanted was a mission 
E5           D5              E5   C5 A5
 And for my sins they gave me one 

E5              D5                E5       C5 D5
 They brought it up just like room service 
E5            D5                E5   C5 A5
 'Cause everyone gets what they want 
E5              D5             E5   C5 D5
 And when that mission was all over 
E5         D5          E5   C5 A5
 I'd never want another one

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

E5         D5             E5    C5 A5 
 Now lie the fragments of a man
