{{Song intro|Dead Again}} It is a very long track, lasting ten and three quarter minutes. Hence the presence of the word 'Doom' in the title, it is dominantly a {{wp|doom metal}} song, though it also contains some {{wp|gothic metal}} riffs and grungy basslines. The track is divided into three parts, or cantos. The first canto of this track, "Beast from the Sky", contains rhythms resembling {{wp|King Crimson}}; the second canto is eponymously titled "The Profit of Doom", which is predominantly gothic; the third and last canto, "My Soul's on Fire", has a doom metal solo. The shouting of [[Peter Steele]] in this song is reminiscent of {{wp|Gwar}} and deals with the Old Testament’s Book of Revelation and the possibility of the asteroid {{wp|Apophis (asteroid)|Apophis}} impacting Earth on Friday, April 13th, 2029.

'''Canto I: Beast from the Sky'''
{{Canto|I: Beast from the Sky}}
+
Goodbye cruel world.
Goodbye cruel world.
+
  +
Of this shape a star of five
  +
Also applies to the one with six sides
  +
Against the sun and against the moon
  +
I warn you that these two combined
  +
Will bring man's doom
  +
Of ten horns and seven heads
  +
Count your fingers and the continents
  +
On your head or in your right hand
  +
This new moral code that the media commands
  +
  +
Believe not in their clever words
  +
Because faith inacted are the loudest heard
  +
All these things I say are true
  +
Understood sadly by a chosen few, you
   
Of this shape a star of five
+
'''Canto II: The Profit of Doom'''
Also applies to the one with six sides
+
April 2-0-2-9 the final time
Against the sun and against the moon
+
The end my friend in not near
I warn you that these two combined
+
The hour in fact is quite here
Will bring man's doom
+
Of ten horns and seven heads
+
When the moon becomes red to guide the risen dead
Count your fingers and the continents
+
This means God's turned his back on you
On your head or in your right hand
+
It's a Friday the 13th of course you won't live to see noon
This new moral code that the media commands
+
  +
I am a prophet of doom
  +
I am the profit of doom
  +
  +
So now the star has fallen
  +
Washing away the seas
  +
The seventh seal now opens
  +
It's raining your fears
  +
  +
Are you paranoid? The coming asteroid
  +
Has got your name tattooed on it
  +
This stone's called Apophis, it brings Apocalypse
  +
  +
I am a prophet of doom
  +
I am the profit of doom
   
Believe not in their clever words
+
'''Canto III: My Soul's on Fire'''
Because faith inacted are the loudest heard
+
Speak the name of he created thee all to be which should not be spoken
All these things I say are true
+
No laws broken
Understood sadly by a chosen few, you
+
  +
No life and love the stars above which fall upon thee all that
  +
Worship the beast, influence ceased
  +
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
  +
My faith is an amber burning ever working towards a greater reward
  +
Serving my Lord
  +
  +
Built his home upon the rock not of the flock but coming
  +
As a shepherd, guarding his herd
  +
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
My soul's on fire
  +
My soul's on fire
