about

Predictions of Doom is an 8-track electro/synth/pop mini-album by independent musician Echo Voodoo. With sounds reminiscent of 80s artists like Depeche Mode and layered vocals similar in style to the Magnetic Fields, each track is a sub-3-minute dose of pure electronic pop, all electro-meat with no unnecessary filler.

Track Name: Devil of a time
I got my sunglasses on but I don't know why
It's close to midnight
I look up but there's not a star in the sky
And nothing feels right

I been walking on down that road all alone
With no destination
I've been seeking that peace in my heart that comes
without condemnation

And I wish it would come down I need something to make me whole
It's a devil of a time making deals with another man's soul

It feels so sweet to be here with you
It fills me with joy
If we stay all day will you lead me astray
Like a girl leads a boy

I got to walk away from the obvious choice
and deal me a new card
I'm taking orders from a brand new internal voice
Decisions are still hard

And I wish it would come down I need something to make me whole
It's a devil of a time making deals with another man's soul

I got my sunglasses on but I don't know why
It's close to midnight
I look up but there's not a star in the sky
And nothing feels right

And I wish it would come down I need something to make me whole
It's a devil of a time making deals with another man's soul
Track Name: Stand and choose
Stuck still in space we got no vision
Nothing left but to make the big decision
Lots of talking but not much thinking
We'll be swimming if this boat starts sinking

She's staying here She's walking out
She's standing still but she's gonna scream and shout
I'm trying hard but it's not going
I think I'm neutral but my biases are showing

Now it's time to stand and choose
Don't forget what you've got to lose

I'm not sure what to say or do
It's almost over and it's down to me and you
If you go left will I go right
We have one shot to make it through the night

Now it's time to stand and choose
Don't forget what you've got to lose

Now it's time to stand and choose
Don't forget what you've got to lose
Track Name: Why hasn't the LHC destroyed us yet?
Folks outside the scientific mainstream have been asking dark questions about the LHC: Could the collider create miniature black holes that rip the planet apart in a maelstrom of destruction? Could exotic particles known as magnetic monopoles throw atomic nuclei out of whack? Could quarks recombine into "strangelets" that would turn the whole Earth into one large mass of exotic matter?

Scientists say no. But, can you trust them?
Track Name: Talking 'bout the cryptids
I fell in love and she's quite a find
But the things she says really blow my mind
I love my baby and she loves me
And she also loves cryptozoology

She's always saying Big Foot needs more press
And she won't stop talking about that thing in Loch Ness
I have my doubts but she says it's on the level
Just like chupacabra and the jersey devil

My baby might be a little crazy
The things she says can make me feel hazy
Sometimes she seems quite with it
But she really gets going when you're talking about the cryptids

The Beast of Bray Road is a werewolf, I'm told
Just like the Mothman is also Indrid Cold
I'm not sure where the Ebu Gogo fit in
But it makes me want to scratch my chinny chin chin

My baby might be a little crazy
The things she says can make me feel hazy
Sometimes she seems quite with it
But she really gets going when you're talking about the cryptids

She loves me and I love her
Though our views on the nature of reality differ
It might seem weird but it was really quite sweet
When she gave me plaster casts of some really big feet

My baby might be a little crazy
The things she says can make me feel hazy
Sometimes she seems quite with it
But she really gets going when you're talking about the cryptids

(spoken)
The Montauk Monster... didn't that turn out to be a decomposed raccoon? Oh, right, cover-up...

sorry, forgot
What's this? Batsquatch? Are you serious?
No, no, I'm not making fun... just sounds... scary... yeah.
Track Name: Float away
Morning comes got to get to work
Share my bus with a foul-mouthed jerk
In at 9, punch out at 5
Do my best just to stay alive

All I want is to go to sleep
Stay away from the other sheep
Make it through another day
All I want is to float away

Boss man yells, there's another mess
Only choice is to nod and say yes
Do as he says, do as I'm told
Do it all until I'm old

All I want is to go to sleep
Stay away from the other sheep
Make it through another day
All I want is to go away

Float away, yeah, yeah
Float away
Track Name: Bathyscaphe
Floating here underneath the sea
No one around but the fish and me

All I wish is to be alone
Here with the fish I will make my home

I swim with fish in my bathyscaphe
I swim with fish in my bathyscaphe

I want to live underneath the sea
No one here but the fish and me

I want to live in my bathyscaphe
