Wicked Young Man

(Alice Cooper, Bob Marlette)

Cold blue swastika tattooed on my skin
The ice in my veins the staples in my chin
I've got it carved in my forehead "Slave To My Sin"
Too violent for the brotherhood to ever take me in

Gonna write down my law in blood upon the street
To the cadence of a goose-step heavy metal beat
Wanna purify my race gonna turn up the heat
Just wanna make 'em die and make the job complete

I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man
It's not the games that I play, the movies I see, the music I dig
I'm just a wicked young man

I like to run my body on heavy heavy fuel
I can punch through a wall, I can kick like a mule
I got a pocketful of bullets and a blueprint of the school
I'm the devil's little soldier, I'm the devil's little tool

I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man
It's not the games that I play, the movies I see, the music I dig
I'm just a wicked young man

I got every kind of chemical pumpin' through my head
I read Mein Kampf daily just to keep my hatred fed
I never ever sleep I just lay in my bed
Dreamin' of the day when everyone is dead

I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man
It's not the games that I play, the movies I see, the music I dig
I'm just a wicked young man
I am a vicious young man, oh I am a vicious young man
I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man

Song Information

I started to think about how, on my own Brutal Planet, an incident like Columbine High School would probably happen every day! In our real world, we're getting these isolated glimpses of how bad such a would could be. In the song 'Wicked Young Man', the subject has got a pocketful of bullets and a blueprint of the school. What I want to do to that guy is to expose him, not to condone him or to glorify him. He's not Billy The Kid or Wyatt Earp. He is a guy you want to turn in." (Metal Edge, October 2000
