I have seen the wrath of the land,
as I wandered like a wolf among the sheep.
I was a part of the wrath of the lamb,
so I am a part of the wolf.
Oh I am the wolf, oh I am the lamb,
so I am Satan and I'm God.
Call me now Judas or call me insane,
I am what I am, I'm just a man.
Call me now Judas or call me insane,
I am what I am, I'm just a man.

Oh I have seen the wrath of the land,
as I wandered like a wolf among the sheep.
Oh I was a part of the wrath of the lamb,
so I am a part of the wolf.
I am the wolf, oh I am the lamb,
so I am Satan and I'm God.
Oh call me now Judas or call me insane,
I am what I am, I'm just a man.

Oh call me now Judas, call me insane,
I am what I am; I'm just a man.

I have seen the wrath of the land,
as I wandered like a wolf among the sheep.
I was a part of the wrath of the lamb,
so I am a part of the wolf.
Oh I am the wolf, oh I am the lamb,
so I am Satan and I'm God.
Call me now Judas or call me insane,
I am what I am, I'm just a man.
Call me now Judas or call me insane,
I am what I am, I'm just a man.

I have seen the wrath of the land,
as I wandered like a wolf among the sheep.
So I was a part of the wrath of the lamb,
so I am a part of the wolf.
I am the wolf, oh I am the lamb,
so I am Satan and I'm God.
I am the wolf, oh I am the lamb,
so I am fuck Satan and I'm fuck God.
Call me now Judas or call me insane,
I am what I am, I'm just a man.
Call me now Judas or call me insane,
I am what I am, a fucking man.
Fuck you, arrghh...
Fuck you, arrghh...

I am what I am.
I’m just a man.
I am a man.

    General CommentKanwulf has said that he wrote this song as a memorial to the member of his family who were killed in the two World Wars.

    Saying that he is the wolf and the lamb seems to me to be a metaphor for saying how he is a both a killer (because he is a soldier, and so he must kill), yet he is also a victim, both because of whoever eventually killed him, and because of the greater evil (the war) that he is a victim to.

    Kanwulf has, in interviews, lamented the fact that virtually all German soldiers in WWII have been demonized, based largely on the actions of a relative few (namely the SS and Gestapo). Most of the German soldiers in WWII were just normal people (many of them were forced into service). Hell, I should know; some of my relatives served in the German army and navy during WWII; none of them were evil by any means.

    Things like that would seem to be where stuff like "Call me now Judas or call me insane, I am what I am, I'm just a man" comes in; most of them were just human beings, not sociopaths or evil people.
