Heart of Darkness

Warbringer (USA)
Far into the unknown
They find this land
Yet unspoiled by time
Its people quite defenseless
Its riches ripe for the taking

They brought the torch
They brought the sword
To seek their fame
To seek reward
They venture into
The jungles and mists
And blinded, they see
Only an infinite darkness
Darkness

The crack of whips, the clack of chains
To bring the light
But why such pain?
To rule by force and domination
And then to speak of civilization?
The ivory face
The eyes so cold
The lust for power
The glimmer of gold
There lies a sickness deep in the soul
One glance in the mirror
Reveals an infinite darkness
Darkness

Stained human soul which none can disguise
What evil lurks in recesses of the mind?
Would you chain another if you gained from their demise?
To peer into this darkness means to face
The horror
The horror

The horror
The horror
The horror within us all

Far, so far into the unknown
The hateful seeds that have been sown
The quest for wealth, that grim desire
The severed hands, the homes afire
Through the years, an unending stain
The crack of whips, the clack of chains
And even today, the echo remains
Witness the still-beating heart, heart of darkness
Darkness
Witness the still-beating heart, heart of darkness
Darkness
