Metallica Am I Evil? Lyrics

Last updated: 09/17/2012 02:13:17 PM

(Originally recorded by Diamond Head)

My mother was a witch, she was burned alive
Thankless little bitch, for tears I cried
Take her down now, don't wanna see her face
All blistered and burnt, can't hide my disgrace

Twenty-seven, everyone was nice
Gotta see 'em make 'em pay the price
See their bodies out on the ice
Take my time

Am I evil? Yes, I am
Am I evil? I am man, yes, I am

As I watched my mother die, I lost my head
Revenge now I sought, to break with my bread
Taking no chances, you come with me
I'll split you to the bone, help set you free

Twenty-seven, everyone was nice
Gotta see 'em, make 'em pay the price
See their bodies out on the ice
Take my time

Am I evil? Yes, I am
Am I evil? I am man, yes, I am, ooh

and with the action now, I'll strip your pride
I'll spread your blood around, I'll see you writhe
Your face is scarred with steel, wounds deep and neat
Like a devil dancin before ya, smells so sweet

Am I evil? Yes, I am
Am I evil? I am man

I'll make my residence, I'll watch your fire
You can come with me, sweet desire
My face is long forgot, my face not my own
Sweet and timely whore, take me home

Am I evil? Yes, I am
Am I evil? I am man
Go!

Solo!

My soul is longing for, await my heir
Sent to avenge my mother, sweeten myself
My face is long forgot, my face not my own
Sweet and timely whore, take me home

Am I evil? Yes, I am
Am I evil? I am man

Am I evil? Yes, I fucking am
Am I evil? I am man, yeah
