A Doom With A View by Vom Vorton

once again I’m the sole survivor
of a war I didn’t fight in
just wandered onto the battlefield
because the sounds were so inviting
the kick of the guns
explosions of bass
the snare is a landmine
gone off in my face

this will be my end, it’s true
but if this is my doom
at least its a doom with a view

once again I’ve abused my power
to travel back in time
and watch another historical battle
from the safety of the sidelines
the bullets fly
bodies contort
so much better
than any sport!

this will be my end, it’s true
but if this is my doom
at least its a doom with a view

you may call me sick
you may say its twisted
the most morbid hobby
that ever existed
and I won't disagree

you may say it’s wrong
I’m not saying it’s right
but maybe next time
would you like
to come with me?

this will be the end, it’s true
but if this is our doom
at least its a doom with a view

A Doom With A View
heine - 18.01.2019


I close my ears.
I don't want to hear.
My eye's got to hide a tear.
What more I could fear?

You're sitting on my lap,
I can't get away.
Resigning once more,
"Okay, let's stay..."

I feel left behind.
There are words in my mind.
Some of them are unkind.
But for you they fit fine.

You're sitting on my lap,
I can't get away.
Resigning once more,
"Okay, let's stay..."

A doom with a view,
how can I get rid of you.
If you ever get up,
I sure will leave you…

forever…
seeing you never…
never again…
be a foe – and not a friend…

forever…

A Doom with a View
by Lichen Throat

Saturday morning in bed:
Sleep still lingers in my head.
I hear your sweet voice, but I can’t make out what you said.
Start to feel a gentle shake.
It’s just a little earthquake,
Barely enough to get me fully awake.
Wander barefoot down the hall,
Past our photos on the wall
I smile when I see you, then I see your face fall.
Cloud of ash is in the sky,
Lava on the mountainside.
Mauna Loa’s erupting, and there’s nowhere to hide.
Please don't be frightened;
Stay here with me
Until this island
Sinks in the sea.
No time to argue,
Nowhere to flee.
Know that I love you
Perpetually.

Listen to the radio.
Lava flowing down the roads,
Terror and panic in Kona and Hilo.
Quakes increase in frequency,
Huge tsunamis on the sea.
The forests are burning; flames rise hellishly.
From up on our hillside,
We stare down below.
Vehicles collide,
And the ash falls like snow.
The island’s ablaze
with a dull orange glow.
What does this portend?
Well, I wish that I knew.
If this is the end,
It’s a doom with a view.
For the rest of our days,
I’ll be right next to you.
Please don't be frightened;
Stay here with me
Until this island
Sinks in the sea.
No time to argue,
Nowhere to flee.
Know that I love you
Perpetually.

You and I stand on the deck.
All that we see is a wreck.
Each burning house just a tiny red speck.
We sit together on the floor,
Lean our backs against the door,
Flip through a scrapbook that we found in a drawer.
There’s pictures of us
Back from when we first met,
When we rode the bus,
And we hadn’t kissed yet.
Those times are long past,
But we’ll never forget.
I hope we escape,
But I’m not sure we will.
Let’s pull back the drapes
And look out at the hills.
I still love you, girl;
Every day’s been a thrill.
Please don't be frightened;
Stay here with me
Until this island
Sinks in the sea.
No time to argue,
Nowhere to flee.
Know that I love you
Perpetually.

"A Doom With A View" - Third Cat


spiders in the desert
panic at a concert
slowly slipping, or am I spinning out?

feeling impending doom
as we see it all fall through
feeling impending doom
but at least I feel it with you
and we've got such a nice view

twisting a new number
'til I'm going under
slowly slipping, or am I spinning out?

feeling impending doom
as wee see it all fall through
feeling impending doom
but at least I feel it with you
and we've got such a nice view

it's a doom with a view
we will watch it all fall
it's a doom with a view
we will watch it all fall
it's a doom with a view
we will watch it all fall through

A Doom with a View - Mandibles

You, who have captured my heart as it beats,
Have heard from my lips what no other has heard.
You, who have given my life its direction,
Have stirred within me what no other has stirred.

“I love you,” are words too inconsequential
For the feelings you’ve brought to the fore
Actions are stronger and louder by far
To convey what is felt at the core


Come my love, let us wander the paths
Higher and higher, without looking back

We could fall
We could fall
We could fall in love
Together


Since the moment we met, I knew you were special
Something inside said we had to be one
And as the years go by, I’m ready to ask
Will you be mine, or will we be done?

I’ll take you back to where first we kissed
Our walk through the park will be long and slow
Take my hand as we head towards the summit
Where the world stretches out far below


Come my love, let us wander the paths
Higher and higher, without looking back

We could fall
We could fall
We could fall in love
Together


She’s been dropping hints about a very big rock,
She wants a surprise; this will be a shock,
Our lives thus far will come to an end,
As to a new beginning we descend.


The sun is setting upon the horizon
A symphony of sanguine hues,
Of tawny tinted golden clouds
Slashed above the stunning view

Above the world we stand together
Arms caught in a long embrace
I kiss your lips a final time
Before I knock you from your place

A little push is all it takes
A stumble, a slip, and nothing to grab
Save for the hand that held yours so firmly
‘Fore giving you wings with a quick thrusted jab

I let you pull me towards our salvation
Your face twists in fear and in love’s agony
The wind rushes by us, the world flying towards us,
You captured my heart but now I’ve set it free.


We could fall
We could fall
We could fall
Together

We could fall
We could fall
We could fall
Together

A Doom with a View
By glennny

Verse 1
It’s so funny how you always need some money
And you try and get it in an underhanded way
You never ever want to buckle down and get a job
You talked to the mob and you found a risky play
Sense the danger
Make arrangements before it’s too late

Don’t depend on devils
To ever let you out

Chorus
You’re gonna die
Up in the sky
It isn’t all bad if you think it through
Take your last breath
Right before your death
And meet your doom with a view

Verse 2
It’s rather tragic how you still believe in magic
You keep on rambling how your gambling is so smart
You’re a victim of a system that was “foolproof”
But you just proved that you’re a fool that falls apart

Don’t depend on devils
To ever let you out

Chorus
You’re gonna die
Up in the sky
It isn’t all bad if you think it through
Take your last breath
Right before your death
And meet your doom with a view

Bridge
They said they would forgive debt if you helped them score
Take a private flight over the rocky shore
You were taken aback by the beauty
As they pushed you out the door

Verse 3
Now your friendly devils
Have gone and pushed you out
As you pay the piper
Be sure to look around

Chorus
You’re gonna die
Up in the sky
It isn’t all bad if you think it through
Take your last breath
Right before your death
And meet your doom with a view

A Doom With A View
Pigfarmer Jr

I could see it coming by the tears on your face
More than a fight, more than a mistake
I wish I could change it all
Maybe tear down this wall we've built

I could see it coming down the hall
No use waiting for the shoe to fall
I just wanna disappear
So I'm leaving here today

I've gotta pack my bags
I can't stay here right now
I don't wanna be in another argument with you

I miss the love we had
At least the good times, anyhow
But I don't need a doom with a view

I could see it coming from miles away
Another fight to throw us in disarray
I don't know where I'm landing
But there ain't no use in standing here

I've gotta pack my bags
I can't stay here right now
I don't wanna be in another argument with you

I miss the love we had
At least the good times, anyhow
But I don't need a doom with a view

Doom With A View
Foobar

The border is closed now
All officers ready

Children in cages
And the rock of ages
Steady

Doom with a view
We are red and blue
In a purgatory set for two
Come on in
The cemetery’s fine
We gave it all
For an imaginary line

Give me your hungry
Your masses disease
Bitten

The lord’s own soldiers
In the book of life’s pages
Unwritten

Doom with a view
We are red and blue
In a purgatory set for two
Come on in
The cemetery’s fine
We lost it all
For an imaginary line
