Doomsday party is starting out

Silhouettes flicking in dead lights
Ten thousand degrees Fahrenheit
We burst in solid centigrade
Heat transfer amplified

Kinetic figures all around
Dangerous girls in overdrive
Blood pressure widening our eyes
Ecstatic, polarized

Watch now, the sun is fading away
And still the skyline is glowing in bright white
Let’s drown in such an assembly
Let’s yell until it all turn to black
(Doomsday party is starting out)

Testing endurance to defy the low performance
We deny all body failure, aiming high
Our breath intensified

And this is how we realize the tragic prize of wasting time
It doesn’t make sense if we die
And we’ll know in the end if we truly lived
And this is how we realize the tragic prize of wasting time
It doesn’t make sense if we die
And we’ll know in the end if we truly lived

We stop all motion for a while and bleed just to feel alive
Like a wave submerging us, we fall and shiver,
The welkin starts to ignite
And we know it won’t last forever, it’s nothing but a lie
A frail substitute for joy
Still, we want to define the line where life and death unite
Where night and day intertwine

We love and hate on fast forward
The momentum is getting wrong
Adrenaline is gasoline
The taste of dust is getting strong

Watch now, the sun is fading away
And still the skyline is glowing in bright white
Let’s drown in such an assembly
Let’s yell until it all turn to black
(Doomsday party is starting out)

And this is how we realize the tragic prize of wasting time
It doesn’t make sense if we die
And we’ll know in the end if we truly lived
And this is how we realize the tragic prize of wasting time
It doesn’t make sense if we die
And we’ll know in the end if we truly live

    My InterpretationThough I never have seen it in today's context, I can agree very much to AKnightatPeace, nice interpretation!

    Like most of Sybreed's songs, I associated it with a more or less remote future, where mankind is mostly dehumanized and has rare moments of feelings or awareness.

    "Watch now, the sun is fading away
    And still the skyline is glowing in bright white"

    refers very well to the spread of artificial light making every daytime the same, people wouldn't even notice if the sun disappeared.

    "Testing endurance to defy the low performance
    We deny all body failure, aiming high
    Our breath intensified"

    pretty much the "support" or better overtake of technical things into peoples' bodies, making them more endurable and powerful.
    The chorus could point that everyone is removable since evryone is the same anyways, plus you don't even know if you had a life due to your missing ability of feeling or being aware that you are living. Our life is a waste of time, we don't change anything in this tech-fullfilled world.

    The clean vocals in the bridge part magically breaks that "doom" description, it shows one moment of awareness:
    "We stop all motion for a while and bleed just to feel alive
    Like a wave submerging us, we fall and shiver,
    The welkin starts to ignite"

    We must hurt ourselves to realize that we are still alive. we see that we are on a wave that determines our life, while the heaven we have once longed (like a goal to make the world better, through technology) is burning down, which makes us shiver.

    "We love and hate on fast forward
    The momentum is getting wrong"

    This now again takes us back to the actual "party", our feelings can be skipped like on a tape, time doesn't matter anymore.


    I really love that song, it's so powerful and not just pure brutality, but with deep sense behind it - which makes the aggression reasonable. And the clean parts...One Dream!
    Anyways, thanks for the hint with today's party people, never thought in that direction...That really makes sense, too!

    General CommentThis song to me is for the younger adults/teenagers who go out partying all night and do a lot of drugs/alcohol.

    But afterwards they decide to drive home and this is when the bad comes upon them.
    "And this is how we realize the tragic prize of wasting time
    It doesn�t make sense if we die"

    It is the teenagers tragic price of wasting time from making those unchangeable decisions which caused their car accident.

    "Watch now, the sun is fading away"

    As the sun fades, the doomsday parties of alcohol and drugs rise all night long.

    This to me is what this song is implying: it is a warning to all the individuals who party, to remain safe in their own life.
