There are such lines in the song "Eyes of the World" ("Rainbow", a British rock band):
Evil moves, evil ways With his back to the wall
Evil takes, evil kills With no shame or concern
Can "Evil" be a subject in all these cases with predicates "moves", "ways", "takes" and "kills"? In all online dictionaries "way" is a noun, but if it is a noun, "evil ways with his back to the wall" looks very weird. Can "way" be used as a verb here?
Thank you for your answers.
