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.
Who'd give up all my life.. to be
In the book of heavy metal.. 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's 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.. metal!
In the book of heavy metal

Some twenty years ago, the goods put down there feet,
So firmly in to the ground that no man of sword nor pen,
could ever chains 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
Don't need no flashy house, no kids/car or ugly wife
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 - In life - metal!
In the book of heavy metal - to death - metal!

I've signed - a contract with the devil
I'd like to become a star
I'd die - to become immortal
That's why I play the guitar

    General Commentheh This song is amazing. \m/ Has a very excellent "Manowar" feel about it, especially in that line 'the goods put down there feet,".

    Obviously, this song is about ascending to the pantheon of the Heavy Metal Gods, and having your name written in The Book Of Heavy Metal. To do so, though, requires you to sell your soul, give up yourself, do everything in your power to gain such a privilage.
