This whole song is about different metal bands (Dio, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath). They are all the metal machine.

He says come touch/suck/b l o w my metal machine, which is something a man would say about his penis.

Love it. Its different from their theme and how they refer to a number of great songs/bands is awesome

This is the best song ever that is about a penis.

There are a lot more. Paranoia (Ozzy), Kings of Metal (Manowar), Ride the Sky (Helloween), Rainbow in the Dark (Dio), Masters of the World (Sabaton themselves). Etc.

So, if stkurhan is correct and every line has a reference to another metal song or band, these are the few I can pinpoint (I think):

1. Crazy Train -- Ozzy Osbourne
2. Shout At the Devil -- Motley Crue
3. Bark at the Moon -- Ozzy Osbourne
4. Children of Bodom
5. Guns 'N' Roses

There are probably more, but I'm not an expert.

Lyrics. Let me know if these are inaccurate at all.

~Metal Machine~
I have a phobia a fear of the dark
Afraid to meet strangers the animal talks
Guns scare me shitless but love guns my friend
The sentinel's coming but is this the end?

Riding on this crazy train I'm going paranoid
Watch me lose my mind and break the law

I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and he's barking at the moon
I'm a metal machine
The rainbow in the dark is shining
Unholy metal machine
It's close to midnight and he's barking at the moon
I'm the metal machine
The kings of metal ride the sky

Is this saitanga the ultimate sin
Or have I really a black knight within
The gates of Bodom are opening wide
Shout at the devil there's nowhere to hide

Fighting for the world to keep the wild child in its cage
Broke the metal heart against the wall

I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and he's barking at the moon
Unholy metal machine
The rainbow in the dark is shining
I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and he's barking at the moon
come touch my metal machine
The kings of metal ride the sky

Come touch my metal machine
It's close to midnight and he's barking at the moon

Come know my metal machine

Come touch my metal machine!!!
I read that this song, although random sounding at first, actually has in each line a reference to another metal band/song. I, not having amazing knowledge of all that is metal (sad i know), do not know what they all are. A simple one is "riding on this crazy train" referring to...Crazy Train!!
