Lyrics for Doomed by Bring Me The Horizon:

That's The Spirit Tour Extended Intro
Sometimes I wonder why are we all here
Call me a nihilist, I guess I'm just unclear
To why I bother, why I try
Death is on my mind so much, it makes me wanna die
I lost my wife this year, we've lost our friend
Always fighting battles, but it never seem to end
Are we just ladders in the world of snakes?
'Cause if life's one big fuckin' game, well, I don't wanna play
So come and sing me, sing me to sleep
I dealt with too much fuckin' shit and now I'm in too deep
Cut off my wings, my flowers bloomed
You want salvation? Well, I'm sorry, we're all doomed

Intro

Verse 1
Cut off my wings and come lock me up
Just pull the plug, yeah, I've had enough
Tear me to pieces, sell me for parts
You're all vampires, so here
You can have my heart (My heart, heart)
You can have my heart (My heart, heart)
You can have my heart (My heart, heart)
You can have my heart (My heart, heart)
You can have my

Verse 2
The world's a funeral, a room of ghosts
No hint of movement, no sign of pulse
Only an echo, just skin and bone
They kicked the chair, but we
We helped tie the rope
You can have my heart (My heart, heart)
You can have my heart (My heart, heart)
You can have my heart (My heart, heart)
You can have my

Pre-Chorus
So come rain on my parade 'cause I wanna feel it
Come shove me over the edge 'cause my head is in overdrive
I'm sorry, but it's too late, and it's not worth saving
So come rain on my parade

Chorus
I think we're doomed
I think we're doomed, and now, there's no way back

Verse 3
You must've made some kind of mistake
I asked for death, but instead, I'm awake
The Devil told me, "No room for cheats"
I thought I'd sold my soul, but he kept the receipt

Bridge
So leave a light on, I'm coming home
It's getting darker, but I'll carry on
The sun don't shine but it never did
And when it rains, it fuckin' pours, but I think I like it
And you know that I'm in love with the mess, I think I like it

Pre-Chorus
So come rain on my parade 'cause I wanna feel it
Come shove me over the edge 'cause my head is in overdrive
I'm sorry, but it's too late, and it's not worth saving
So come rain on my parade

Chorus
I think we're doomed
I think we're doomed, and now, there's no way back
I think we're doomed
I think we're doomed, and now, there's no way back

Pre-Chorus
So come rain on my parade 'cause I wanna feel it
Come shove me over the edge 'cause my head is in overdrive
I'm sorry, but it's too late, and it's not worth saving
So come rain on my parade

Chorus
I think we're doomed
I think we're doomed, and now, there's no way back

Song Facts

“Doomed” was the first non-single heard from the album as the band previewed it on August 28th. The title describes the mood expressed in this song: doom to the point where one feels like a corpse before accepting his inescapable depression and embracing it mockingly to cope.

Jordan Fish told Kerrang!:

“Doomed” was originally going to be called “What a State.” But the whole track changed, so we decided that the name should change with it too. There’s a little fun fact for you! These words are actually still in there, if you listen closely to the songs, you can hear a quiet ‘what a state’ in between each of the verses. And that’s me you’re hearing!

In the Track by Track commentary, Oli also admitted that the song is about embracing and celebrating the darkness rather than trying to hide it or lock it away.

“Doomed” was the first track that we wrote for the album and it was also the last track we finished. It was always intended to be the first song on the album. We wanted to open with something that made it clear that this record isn’t going to be what you’ve heard before from us.


“Doomed” samples sounds from the drug scenes featured in the 2000 film Requiem for a Dream.
