[Verse 1] (Lyrics)

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

                Take my time.......

                Am I Evil?
                Yes I am,

[Verse 2] (Lyrics)

                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 split you to the bone, help set you free.

[GUITAR SOLO]

        
For the solo, the rhythm follows the following 'feel':

          X       X         X       X           
        |-X--XXXX-X-XXXX--|-X--XXXX-X-XXXX--|

        Chord changes are noted above tab lines, and are 2 or 3 fingered power
chords, depending on what you feel like. For the 'XX' notes, strike the
full chord, on the others just play the lowest note (Usually the E string)

NOTES :
-------

        -   For the intro solo, use the left hand for all taps - The open
string is picked with the pick, then hammer on with your index finger,
then little finger for the highest note. This technique is also used in
the main solo as well.

        -   For the tapping part on the main solo, i find it easier to
use my middle finger rather than the pick edge (Since it is not too
fast)

There are probably a lot of mistakes in this transcription, any
corrections and/or additions would be gratefully received. Also the rest
of the lyrics would be a Bonus! Listen to the song to get the feel of
the rhythm (and lead parts!!) - It's difficult to convey the timing
accurately using this format.
