Civil War – Heart Of Darkness Lyrics

Civil War – Heart Of Darkness Lyrics

Underneath the midnight star
I pray for day to break
As the silvery moon makes the river shine
Like the back of an oily snake

Crawling, slithering shadows
Seem to coil around me, holding tight
The pull of the water beneath the boat
Drags me further into Night

The strangling vines on the shore
Twist on through the darkness forever
Like hangmen’s rope they sway

Oh, heart of darkness
Oh, heart of man

I walk past the maimed in the Grove of Death
To meet with Captain Kurtz
A talented man, come to bring the light
Sent to break the savage curse

But my wonder drowns in horror
As I see the madness in his eyes
A petty, murderous tyrant
Upon a throne of blood and flies

Humanity stolen, betrayed
Swallowed by darkness forever
Led stumbling away

Oh, heart of darkness
Oh, heart of man

Humanity broken, betrayed
Lost in the darkness forever
We’re stumbling away

Oh, heart of darkness
Oh, heart of man
