about

Doomsday Virus Albany, New York

beautifully destructive, new york's doomsday virus has arisen from remission.

snarling vocals and panicked screams deliver brutal, biting lyrics over punishing electronics. sonic sacrifices of synthesizers and disfigured drums form the foundation for this hallowed horrorscape of nightmare noise. whiskey and nicotine fuel the frenetic fury of guitars turned to bonesaw blades. ... more

Track Name: Cracks In The Facade
[ CRACKS IN THE FACADE ]

fearless defiantly
driven triumphantly
flawless in vanity
so strong and so perfect

chosen divinity
golden nobility
potent virility
a little too perfect

i feel as if i'm losing control
i feel as if there's nothing to hold
i feel my grip slip, slipping so slow
i feel my fingers as they let go

i feel my heart about to explode
i feel my pain approaching threshold
i feel the cracks are starting to grow
i feel my face is starting to show

valor unwavering
godlike savoring
ruthless laboring
power tapering?

tarnished the irony
blemished so subtly
tainted neglectfully
so much for so perfect

damaged so savagely
branded disgracefully
ruined apologies
a little less perfect

grasping fumbling
shamed now humbling
fallen stumbling
stone walls crumbling

ascension eluded
majesty polluted
fortitude diluted
and rendered impotent

pretension suspended
the grandeur upended
a ruse apprehended
unworthy opponent

i feel as if i'm losing control
i feel as if there's nothing to hold
i feel my grip slip, slipping so slow
i feel my fingers as they let go

i feel my heart about to explode
i feel my pain approaching threshold
i feel the cracks are starting to grow
i feel my face is starting to show

i fear as if i'm losing control
i fear as if there's nothing to hold
i fear my grip is slipping so slow
i fear my fingers are letting go

i fear my heart's about to explode
i fear my pain's approaching threshold
i fear the cracks are starting to grow
i fear my face is starting to show
Track Name: Die Alone
[ DIE ALONE ]

standing here
in the mess i've made
lamenting games
i should not have played
i rolled the dice
i lost it all
i forsook grace
now watch me fall

with nothing left
except my lies
and the demons
cast upon my life
this shadow world
that i've created
falls apart
disintegrating

no turning back
no going home
i've gone too far
down this dark road
all is revealed
and now i know
that you were right
i'll die alone

lying there
in your disaster
unhappily
ever after
this fairy tale
now has ended
in bitterness
and resentment

the dreams you had
now subdued
by the nightmare
in front of you
unraveling
you come undone
but the loneliness
has just begun

no turning back
no going home
i've gone too far
down this dark road
all is revealed
and now i know
that you were right
i'll die alone

words cut like knives
like razor blades
blood flows like tears
like tears in rain
into the streets
on your parade
when you make hate
a holiday

no turning back
no going home
you've gone too far
down this dark road
all is revealed
and now i know
you'll be the one
who dies alone

the knife it twists
and bridges burn
you've sown these seeds
reap what you've earned
come claim your prize
this ash filled urn
all that remains
of my concern
Track Name: Save Our Souls
[ SAVE OUR SOULS ]

day to dusk, and dusk to dark
the crimes of time, have left their mark
scrawled across, our weathered skin
the cracking lines, now leathering
our damaged minds, in disconnect
circuits shorted, with regret
our damaged hearts, that we protect
with our last shreds, of self respect

day to dusk, and dusk to dark
now we face, the hardest part
face the face, that's in the mirror
fading away, we disappear
our broken minds, don't recognize
the figure now, before our eyes
our broken hearts, bleed one last time
for all of those, we've left behind

save our souls
we're growing old
but there's nowhere to run
once the fear takes hold

save our souls
what's left is cold
devoid, destroyed
disposable

save our souls
from this black hole
devouring
the light it stole

save our souls
we've lost control
as the years disappear
they've taken their toll
Track Name: Crimes Of Passion
[ CRIMES OF PASSION ]

frustration, aggravation, in the throes of, deprivation
degradation, humiliation, lashing out in, desperation
rejection, repression, turning into, obsession
indiscretion, transgression, starving for some, affection

hesitation, trepidation, on the hunt for, affirmation
strangulation, suffocation, smothering, asphyxiation
intoxication, infatuation, enticing, temptation
consummation, validation, the sweet taste of, vindication

i'm a realist
i just have romantic dreams
can you feel this?
can you feel me scream

this is the sound
of nothing more to give
i'm just dying
i'm dying to live

crimes of passion
crimes of love
these crimes that we
are guilty of

crimes of passion
crimes of lust
to validate
we violate our trust

i'd sell my soul
for just one night with you
i'd give it all
give everything to you
i'd tempt the fates
and put my trust in you
i'd roll the dice
and take my chance with you
Track Name: Cold, Colder
[ COLD, COLDER ]

your cup runneth over
my cup runneth dry
a burden grown so heavy
i break right through the ice

cold... colder still
cold... colder still
cold... colder still
cold... colder still

never did i think that i could be
someone so cold
i would freeze

never did i think it possible
that i could bury you
like snow

this victory never wanted
no more worth fighting for
this hostage situation
this endless cold war

my heart has frozen over
as love turns to hatred
i submit to the cold winds
out of shits to give
Track Name: Fool Me
[ FOOL ME ]

an empty promise
a little white lie
another chance
another try
to stay the course
to show resolve
to make believe
to be absolved

of any blame
of any fault
of any pain
that you have caused
of any shame
of any greed
of any guilt
you've laid on me

don't ever forget and
don't take for granted
these three chances
that you've been handed

one is forgiven
two you're at risk
three is enforced by
the end of my fist

fool me once
and fool me twice
fool me thrice
i'm not so nice
don't you ever
ever think
don't you think
you can fool me

a double standard
a double take
a great hope
a great mistake
to be so blind
to be let down
to disappoint
to play the clown

of charlatans
of imposters
of frauds and the
myths they foster
of con artists
of prostitutes
of hustlers that
disguise the truth
Track Name: Flatline
[ FLATLINE ]

beating, can't stop the beating
can't stop the feeling
it's not alright
beating, beating and bleeding
can't start the healing
with one more fight

flatline, i know we've reached the end of the line
flatline, my heart just stopped
flatline, and now we're all out of time
flatline, my heart just stopped

beating, my head i'm screaming
i'm begging, pleading
this ends tonight
beating, beating demeaning
til i stop breathing
and end this life
Track Name: Life Deleted
[ LIFE DELETED ]

as darkness falls
so silently
i still burn
defiantly

but flames grow cold
candles burn down
reduced to ash
upon the ground

smoldering
carbon desire
smothered coals
lost with the fire

the wind and rain
the violent weather
washes away
into forever

this is the, end goodbye
this is where, dreams will die
this is how, we will fall
this is our, hopes dissolved
this is the, crushing blow
this is our, time to go
this is our, love defeated
this is our, life deleted

a frozen wind
echoing vows
left unfulfilled
and empty now

as winter screams
its siren song
the longing still
goes on and on

..... life deleted
..... life deleted
..... life deleted
..... life deleted

this is our love defeated, this is our life deleted
this is our love defeated, this is our life deleted
this is our love defeated, this is our life deleted
this is our love defeated, this is our life deleted

this is... this is... this is... life deleted
this is... this is... this is... life deleted
this is... this is... this is... life deleted
this is... this is... this is... life deleted
Track Name: I Hope You Expected To Be Let Down
[ I HOPE YOU EXPECTED TO BE LET DOWN ]

this is a warning shot
so save yourself
i am a hazard
to your health
this is your last chance
to walk away
it's just not safe here
for you to stay

let me make it clear
as clear as sin
before you crack that door
and let me in
let me spell it out
so there's no mistaking
the degree of risk
that you are taking

there's no going back
there is no cure
if you come with me
you best be sure
you're willing to leave
it all behind
and let the virus
creep inside

in this mind prison
there's no safe word
you drink this poison
your fate's secured
submission now
is not a choice
crippled, crumbled
by my voice

infected
in sacrifice
your scars reveal
you've paid the price
you should know better
shouldn't you?
if it seems too good
it can't be true

taste the darkness, bite the fruit
let me have my way with you
make your choice, and seal your fate
know that there is no escape
shackled to this, pain for life
kiss me now, kiss me goodnight
know that you're forever mine
there's no second chance this time
dancing to this awful sound
i hope you expected to be let down
