Heart of the Beast

When egos rise, when darkness thrives
Compassion dies, cut down to cries

There’s a sickness in the heart of the beast
Carve it up and watch them starve at the feast

But can’t you see the crack grow?
Can’t you feel your blood flow?
Even with what darkness brings
Let the fear entreat you
Summon up the sinew
Suck the poison from its sting

When egos rise, when darkness thrives
Compassion dies, cut down to cries

There’s a sickness in the heart of the beast
Carve it up and watch them starve at the feast
There’s a weakness in the bones of the beast
Boil it up and watch them suck at the marrow’s tease

But can’t you see the crack grow?
Can’t you feel your blood flow?
Even with what darkness brings
Let the fear entreat you
Summon up the sinew
Suck the poison from its sting
