Diamond Head - "Am I Evil" (Live at Wacken Open Air 2019)

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

27 every one was nice, gotta see them,
Make them 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

As I watched my Mother die, I lost my head
Revenge now I sought, to break with my bread
Takin' no chances, you come with me
I'll split you to the bone
Help set you free.

27 every one was nice, gotta see them,
Make them 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

On with the action now, I'll strip your pride
I'll spread your blood around, I'll see you ride
Your face is scarred with steel, wounds deep and neat
Like a double dozen before you, smell so sweet.

Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man

My soul is long gone before me, I'm awaiting my hell
Sent to avenger my mother, sweeten myself
My face is long forgotten, my face not my own
Sweet and timely whore, take me home

Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man

On with the action now, I'll strip your pride
I'll spread your blood around, I'll see you ride
Your face is scarred with steel, your spirits dance
Like a double dozen before ya, no romance

Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man


Στο φετινό φεστιβάλ Wacken Open Air εμφανίσθηκαν οι Diamond Head κι έχουμε στην διάθεσή μας, σε βίντεο, την "ζωντανή" απόδοση του εμβληματικού τραγουδιού "Am I evil". Το συγκεκριμένο μουσικό κομμάτι το πρωτοσυναντήσαμε στο ντεμπούτο των Βρετανών θρύλων "Lightning to the Nations" (1980) και -επανεκτελεσμένο- δύο χρόνια αργότερα στον 2ο δίσκο των Diamond Head "Borrowed Time" (1982). Ηχογραφήθηκε το 1980. Στίχοι - μουσική Sean Harris και Brian Tatler.
