Trivia / Info:

  • This is a very rough, early version of "Race of Doom", which would later show up in 1981 on New Traditionalists, featuring alternate lyrics, a very rough synth-based arrangement, a bizzare vocalized guitar solo, and lacking the entire "Is It On/Is It Off/Reply" section.
  • Possibly recorded in November, 1974.

Onstage Behavior: Neither this or the finished version was played live.

Lyrics:

Race... Of... Doom
Race... Of... Doom

I wanna be your human time bomb
Let me be your human time bomb baby
(Hey)
I'll love you right to the end
(Ho)
Piece it together again
(Right down)
Or we'll never know when

Race... Of... Doom
Race... Of... Doom

I wanna be your human time bomb
Let me be your human time bomb baby
(Oh)
I see that look in your face
(Cars)
Explode all over the place
(Smile)
I know I'm still in the race

Race... Of... Doom
Race... Of... Doom

I wanna be your human toilet
Please let me be your human toilet baby
Uh-oh
A little things in the past
Auto
The wheels closing in fast
Too late
For one last blast of your gas

There's nothing to it, so let's go through it

The melody is then sung wordlessly, possibly as a placeholder for a guitar solo.
