I Am A Wicked Child Lyrics - Radiohead

Review The Song (2)



Mother Mary come to me
for i am a wicked child
i have sinned and i am so confused and i am a wicked child
i am a wicked child

i am the devils son
and i wish i could be good
i walk a crooked mile
yet i wish i could be good
i wish i could be good

if i could have kept on the straight and narrow
if i could have kept on the straight and narrow
and not have broke your heart
not have broke your heart

now i wake up in the night
it's tugging at my arms and legs
like i was a marionette

sponsored links
send baby jesus
to radiate his light
to radiate his light

i am a wicked child indeed | Reviewer: david | 9/12/10

riley's earlier review makes some unwarranted suppositions er: religion, homestly, you have no clue what Thom meant with this.

It is however a brilliant piece of americana - rare for radiohead [glass houses on amnesiac also comes to mind].

To me it is one of the only great Christian rock songs, not that Thom is a Christian, from what I have read he practices Buddhist Meditation.

Anyway as far as I can tell he set himself to write a Catholic rock song of if not repentance at least regret and wish.

Like most of what Thom releases it is brilliant. the whole EP - Com-lag I got this song on is almost as good as Hail to the thief.



Solid B-Side | Reviewer: riley | 4/2/07

This song follows a pretty constant theme. It implies the story of a once religious person gone astray. The song's musical style is a sort of blues-y rock n' roll style. I perceived this as a sort of bad-to-the-bone approach. The vocal style seems a bit unapologetic, if the lyrics at all do. At the end of the song, Yorke sings "send baby jesus, to radiate his light." This is not pronounced explicitly; perhaps Yorke is saying "...to radiate his lie." instead. A not-so-subtle slight on Christianity, Radiohead seems to think that overzealous individuals may not have it all right. Perhaps there are more important things in our lives than whether or not we adhere to one religion or another.
