  • Some like beautiful, perfect and pretty
    I see the good in the bad and the ugly
    I need the volume one louder than ten
    I put the pedal to the metal, needle into the red
    If the windows ain't shaking
    Making my heart race
    If I can't feel it in my chest
    I'm in the wrong damn place!

    I got a demon in my soul and a voice in my head
    It's saying go, go, go! I can sleep when I'm dead
    There's a sonic revelation bringing me to my knees
    And there's a man down below that needs my sympathy
    I got a ringing in my ears getting ready to burst
    Screaming "hallelujah, motherfucker, take me to church"

    I like it louder than the boom
    Of a big bass drum
    I need it harder than the sound
    Of a guitar grunge
    I love to crank it up
    Make it thump
    And evil to the core
    Headbanging in the pit
    And throwing my horns
    And just like old school
    Sabbath, Zeppelin and Lemmy
    I need to drop it down low
    And make it heavy
    I like it heavy, wow-oh
    I like it heavy, wow-oh

    I ride the lightning, roll with the thunder
    I'm going down, down, down with my sisters and brothers
    I fell in love with their darkest parts
    Stand on the side of the wild at heart
    I plucked the feather off a crow so I could fly
    Since I was thirteen years old, I've had my fist to the sky

    I like it louder than the boom
    Of a big bass drum
    I need it harder than the sound
    Of a guitar grunge
    I love to crank it up
    Make it thump
    And evil to the core
    Headbanging in the pit
    And throwing my horns
    And just like old school
    Sabbath, Zeppelin and Lemmy
    I need to drop it down low
    And make it heavy
    I like it heavy, wow-oh
    I like it heavy, wow-oh

    I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
    I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
    I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
    I like it, I like it, I like it heavy

    Some like beautiful, perfect and pretty
    I see the good in the bad and the ugly

    I like it heavy, wow-oh
    I like it heavy, wow-oh

    I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
    I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
    I like it, I like it, I like it heavy
    I like it, I like it, I like it heavy

    Take me home tonight, I'd do anything with you
    Buy a bottle of whiskey, we'll get matching tattoos
    Tell me that you love me, oh, let me drive your car
    We can sit to morning light, just countin' every stars
    'Cause if there's a Hell, I'll meet you there
    And if there's a Heaven, they're serving beer
    And if you're an angel then, I must be high
    Oh, if there's a church, it's rock 'n roll
    If there's a devil, I sold my soul
    And it's alright whatever we do tonight
    'Cause if there's a God dammit, she won't mind
    If there's a God, baby, she won't mind Writer/s: Elizabeth Hale, Elizabeth Mae Hale, Joseph Hottinger, Scott Christopher Stevens, Zac Maloy
