IRON MAIDEN - The Edge Of Darkness lyrics

rate me

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 too far

In this war things get so confused

But there are some things which can not 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

Here I am the knife in my hand

And now I understand why the genius must die

Now I stand alone in darkness

With his blood upon my hands

Where sat the warrior the poet

Now lie the fragments of a man
