"Heavy Metal" as written by Robert Halford, Kenneth Downing and Glenn Raymond Tipton....
When the power chords come crashing down
Go tearing through my senses
It's for the strong, not for the weak
In light and dark dimension

It stimulates, regenerates
It's therapeutic healing
It lifts our feet up off the ground
And blasts us through the ceiling

Between the eyes
I hear it screaming
And it electrifies
Your inner feelings

Hot shock waves charge the air
All heads are banging
Fists pumping everywhere
Guitars are cranking

Heavy metal, heavy metal
What do you want
Heavy metal, heavy metal
What do you want

Ten thousands lights come blazing down
With razor sharp precision
The speakers pour out molten steel
The beat gives double vision

An armor plated raging beast
That's born of steel and leather
It will survive against all odds
Stampeding on forever

Between the eyes
I hear it screaming
And it electrifies
Your inner feelings

Hot shock waves charge the air
All heads are banging
Fists pumping everywhere
Guitars are cranking

Heavy metal, heavy metal
What do you want
Heavy metal, heavy metal
What do you want

    General CommentIn my 18yr old female opinion, the BEST METAL SONG EVER!!! It inspires me & motivates me. It makes me powerful and unites me with other Metalheads, it is a Masterpiece and has completly elevated my already existing EXTREME APPRECIATION OF JUDA'S PRIEST. This song is a big part of my life. YES!

    General Commenta very poetic description of the music genre. a sort of mission statement, if you want to think of it that way. metal = art.
