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 and roll 
Let me die to save my soul 
Let me die  let me die  rock and roll 
Let the world forgive the past 
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last 
Let me go  let me go  rock and 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 tell? 
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 and roll 
Let me die to save my soul 
Let me die, let me die, rock and roll 
Let the world forgive the past 
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last 
Let me go, let me go, rock and 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 
 Heavy metal, heavy metal machine 
 Heavy metal, heavy metal machine 
 Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
