                [Intro]
B5/E  D5/A  B5/E         x4
B5/E  D5/A  B5/E  C5 D5  x2

[Verse 1]
Em             D               Em       C  D
 I've looked into the heart of darkness
Em         D                 Em   C  Am
 Where the blood-red journey ends
Em           D                  Em       C  D
 When you've faced the heart of darkness
Em         D              Em   C  Am
 Even your soul begins to bend

[Verse 2]
Em     D                Em      C  D
 For a week I have been waiting
Em          D          Em  C  Am
 Still I am only in Saigon
Em              D           Em     C  D
 The walls move in a little closer
Em          C              D    C  D 
 I feel the jungle call me on

(distorted power chords)

[Verse 3]
Em     D            Em     C  D
 Every minute I get weaker
Em            D                Em     C  Am
 While in the jungle they grow strong
Em      D            Em      C  D
 What I wanted was a mission
Em          D                 Em   C  Am
 And for my sins they gave me one

[Verse 4]
Em               D                 Em      C  D
 They brought it up just like room service
Em          D                  Em   C  Am
'Cause everyone gets what they want
Em             D               Em   C  D
 And when that mission was all over
Em         C            D   C  D 
 I'd never want another one

[Riff]
Em    G     Am    C  D   x3

[Bridge 1]
Em                            Em
 I know, captain, that you've done this work before
G D                             Bm              C D
   We've got a problem, you can help us all I'm sure
Em                                 Em
 The colonel's gone rogue, and his methods are unsound
G D                     C               D  
   You'll take a PBR up river track him down...

[Riff]
Em    G     C     D  

[Bridge 2]
Em                     Em
 There's a conflict in every human heart
G D                         Bm             C D
   And the temptation is to take it all to far
Em           Em
 In this war things get so confused
G D                                Bm          C D
   But there are some things which cannot be excused

[Bridge 3]
Em                           Em
 He's acting like a God - an insane lunatic
G D                                Bm           C D
   Your mission - exterminate with extreme prejudice
Em                               Em
 The route is dangerous and your progress may be slow
G D                          C       D     
   Here is the file and it's all you need to know...

[Riff]
Em    G     Am    C  D   x2
                     Oo'ooh...
[Solo 1]
Em    Em  G D     Bm C D x2

[Solo 2]
Em    Em  G D     Bm C D x2

[Instrumental]
Em    G     Am    C  D   x4

[Pre-chorus]
Em            G
Here I am the knife in my hand
        Am                   C           D
And now I understand why the genius must die

[Chorus 1]
Em     D                  Em       C  D
 Now I stand alone in the darkness
Em        D             Em    C  Am
 With his blood upon my hands
Em             D           Em   C  D
 Where sat the warrior the poet
Em           C              D   C  D
 Now lie the fragments of a man

(clean picking)

[Chorus 2]
Em             D               Em       C  D
 I've looked into the heart of darkness
Em         D                 Em   C  Am
 Where the blood-red journey ends
Em           D                  Em    C  D
 When you've faced the heart of darkness
Em         C              D    C  D
 Even your soul begins to bend

[Outro]
Em             D               Em      
 I've looked into the heart of darkness...
