Arch Enemy – The Book Of Heavy Metal lyrics
I'd sign, a contract with the devil
I've tried, for so very long
I'd die, to become immortal
That's why I sing this song
Am I a wannabe?, have I no dignity?
I'd give up all my life to be
In the book of heavy metal! Yeah! (Metal)
In the book of heavy metal!

In life, I have no religion
Besides the heavy metal gods
Wear nothing but black skin tight leather
My skin is clad with metal studs
Am I a wannabe?, have I no dignity?
I give up all my life to be
In the book of heavy metal! Yeah! (Metal)
In the book of heavy metal! Yeah! (Metal)

Some twenty years ago, the gods put down their feet,
So firmly in to the ground that no man of sword nor pen,
Could ever change the rules upon which
The very fundament of metal was made.

Read all about it, in the book of heavy metal
Read all about it, in the manual
Read all about it, in the book of heavy metal
Read all about it, yes! read it!
Don't need no flashy house, no kids or ugly MAN
The only thing I want, is what my parents don't
Need no widescreen TV, No, in all honesty
The only thing I want to be (to be or not to be)

In the book of heavy metal!
I'd sign, a contract with the devil
In the book of heavy metal!
I'd like, to become a star
In the book of heavy metal!
I'd die, to become immortal
In the book of heavy metal!
That's why I play the guitar
In the book of heavy metal!
In Life! Yeah!
In the book of heavy metal!
To Death! Yeah!
In the book of heavy metal!
Yeah!
In the book of heavy metal!
Yeah!
