"Don't Open 'Til Doomsday" as written by Jerry Caiafa, Paul Caiafa, David Calabrese and Michael C. Emanuel....
Buried beneath the statue, the answer hides
Enduring throughout the ages
The transmitter lies
Once the chambers open the signal will be sent
To another world... far beyond the stars

Don't open 'til doomsday
Destruction's not far away
Don't open 'til doomsday
You might not like what you find

Don't open 'til doomsday
Destruction's not far away
Don't open 'til doomsday
You might not like what you find inside

We were warned of this coming so long ago
Immortal secrets... man shouldn't know
Entering a realm where we just don't belong
We called them and they're coming

Don't open 'til doomsday
Destruction's not far away
Don't open 'til doomsday
You might not like what you find inside

Don't open 'til doomsday
(Inside) Destruction's not far away
(Inside) Don't open 'til doomsday
You might not like what you find
You might not like what you find inside

    General CommentThis song, is one of the better, and newer songs out. Its a shame its only a bonus track, but it still kicks serious ass. As far as the meaning goes, just read the lyrics its not that deep, like most misfits songs.

    General Commenthey, if someone likes the new misfits, than thats their opinion. Personally, I love the old misfits better, but the version with Michale Graves isn't that bad. So, berfore you say FUCK THE NEWFITS or anything, keep in mind some people may jsut like them.

    General Commentoh and by the way...

    to be hypocritical for a second (to both my anti-violent beliefs, and an earlier post i left telling people to talk about the music not who they hate)
    i just wanted to add that real nazis should be stabbed in the face, or kicked very hard in sensitive parts of their body repeatedly

    ...that is all

    General Commentok then hear this. this is a post from the stupid-hick-fuck oldskoolpunker. this is exactly what he said, not a letter out of place.

    "i like this song cause i dunno its just so... pissed off you know like I AM GONNA BURN U JEW FUCK U JEW "die,die,die My darling"... sorry"

    What the fuck is that all about?? i bet if glenn heard you speek like that he would personaly make you eat your own balls. dont pretend that the misfits are pro nazi because nothing could be further from the truth.

    General CommentThis is a great song. I love the harmonys and of course the sense of doom portrayed through all these lyrics.
    I guess you could take a literal meaning of these words, that we have actually broken something, and now we are "fucked".
    The meanings could even lie deeper,into religion. Not opening is never knowing, so why deny knowledge?

    General CommentAs it is with most Misfits' songs, the meaning is pretty straight forward. It's about man tampering with the fabric of reality, or the genome, etc. and creating something that ends the world. I personally think it refers to opening a gate to hell, a la "Ultimate DOOM;" but that's just me.
