If I were alive
If I were real
Would you survive
What would you feel
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
As sentimental
As our broken dreams
Let me die
For rock n' roll
Let me die
To save my soul
Let me die
Let me die
Rock n' roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go
Let me go
Rock n' roll
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
Heavy metal
A heavy metal machine
We're the metal
In their metal machines
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
If I were dead
Would my records sell
Could you even tel
Is it just as well
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
It's elemental
To all the rust it brings
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
Let me die for rock n' roll
Let me die and save my soul
Let me go
Let me go
Rock n' roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go
Let me go
Rock n' roll
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
Heavy metal
A heavy metal machine
We're the metal
In their droning schemes
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
Will I survive
Is it up to me
Could you understand
That it's not yours to keep
Heavy metal
Heavy metal machine
