From: wfpol@cs.ruu.nl (Wilbert Pol)


The people who transcribed it :

Jeff Jacobson - Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth
Andy Aledort - Jump in the Fire
Steve Gorenberg - the rest

The only thing I've done is converting them to ascii.

I've put all note lengths below the measures, they are :
w - whole note
h - half note
q - quarter note
e - eigth note
s - sixteenth note
t - thirty-second note
l - long note ('fermate' sign)
x+y - play note with length x+y

/ - a couple of these mean you have to fill the length with
    1. eight notes         (1 slash)   or
    2. sixteenth notes     (2 slashes) or
    3. thirty-second notes (3 slashes)

R - in the tab denotes a rest.
x - an undefined or muted note.
[ 3 ] - a triplet

/ - slide up
/(X) - slide up to fret X, but don't pick X
\ - slide down
\(X) - slide down to fret X, but don't pick X
T - tap note
Harm - harmonic
A.H. - Artificial harmonic

inside bar :
p - pull off
h - hammer on
bx - bend string x notes up
bx r - bend string x notes up and release string

a note without a length indication, means a 'ghost' note (The little notes
that occur in sheet music sometimes).

cresc. - crescendo  (Play louder and louder, 'fade in')

||--  --||
||-o  o-||  - a repeat
||-o  o-||
||--  --||

|  X  |
|-----|  - X bar rest
|-----|
|     |

|  %  |  - repeat previous bar

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

 Pre-chorus :
    Twenty-seven, ev'ry one was nice
    Gotta see 'em, make 'em pay their price
    See their bodies out on the ice
    Take my time

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

 2. 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

 Pre-chorus

 Chorus

 Bridge :
 3. 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 ya, smells so sweet

 Chorus II :
    Am I evil ?
    Yes, I am
    Am I evil ?
    I am man

 4. I'll take 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

 Chorus II

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

 Chorus II

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

THis tab is excellent but it is so blocked up. Did you copy this out of a frikkin tab book or what. You dont need to make them so cluttered up. Especially this one. Dont worry, i still gave you five stars.

I feel the same way as titan, whats with all the blocks? just make it simple. That was alot of effort, but im a 6 string guitarist and dont know how to read bass stuff, or it may just be this particular tab. KICK ASS song though. I can play it on 6 string guitar and its not that hard so i guess neither is this. My little bro is learning to play bass so I thought i'd learn it and show it to him. 5 stars tho man, good job. Peace.
