I can't feel what you feel Just know that you do And through reason I will prove I don't need to Empathy only distracts Forces you to react Why be bound by a social instinct Look at the long term More pain and dread Is escape cowardly when That's the end When you feel no thing You'll take any thing I'll use hate to bring an End to all our suffering Necessary violence, I can't wait An end to our child's trance, I can't wait These opportunists took advantage Ambiguity of language To delay our freedom, our destiny Diversion of resources Challenged not the power structure And now I'm the only hope for Putting us back on the path They let their master Be stricken down Thus proving faster They're giving ground When our suffering Brings your life meaning You'll say anything to Delay our story's ending Necessary violence, I can't wait An end to our child's trance, I can't wait Don't run Don't hide You'll want to see Universe's final glory Admit Face facts There's a drop of misery In every thing that you do I hear your protests I don't care Come challenge my fury If you dare When you feel nothing When you feel nothing When you feel nothing Rage is everything Necessary violence, I can't wait An end to our child's trance, I can't wait How can you be Pleased with a life build on foundations of pain No, no more lies It's exploitative, no justice until we've all died

Follow me gracefully And listen to what I say Because apparently the things you see Don’t give it away But no matter even now You’ll probably not realize or care how Look around and tell me What do you see Prosperity unity Justice happiness no Pain terror force corruption Defiance betrayal How could you not see it When it’s right there in front of you How could you not even feel it When it’s inside of you Its right there All around you It’s all here… The greed surrounds you They feed your greed what you see Just makes you want more And the worse it gets The harder it is to realize They feed your greed what you see Just makes you want more And it just grows worse and worse IT NEVER STOPS GROWING WORSE Come follow me hastily Into a dark place called Earth our world our homeland It’s in ruins But oh you say it looks just fine What could be wrong I clench my teeth and sigh and say Everything is wrong But the buildings stand tall People prosper, they never cease to gain; I sigh again and say yes There’s no end to their reign You look at me puzzled then With no words in your mouth And I then say as they prosper Everything else dies And they we the humans We’re really dying inside But the ego mind clouds the death But that’s no excuse it’s you Don’t you see how simply we've Done this without knowing Or why all should be changed Why hate should convert to love It’s all here All the chances to Realize our faults But you give it no second glances And oh what will you do When your machines turn on you But all of your creations Already have Its right there All around you It’s all here… The greed surrounds you They feed your greed what you see Just makes you want more And the worse it gets The harder it is to realize They feed your greed what you see Just makes you want more And it just grows worse and worse IT NEVER STOPS GROWING WORSE AND OF COURSE YOU STAND THERE OBLIVIOUS TO WHAT I SAY AND MOST DEFINITELY TO THE TERROR YOU SEE WHY DID I EVEN BOTHER WHY DO I CARE… To try to make you realize truth You leave me simply Because you do not understand Telling me I think too much That I should care less instead So I’m alone as always I guess I shouldn’t feel sad If I’m so used to it But the loneliness grows every time I lose a chance So I lead myself now all alone Into the cities I defy In search of another Someone to send my message to In between the buildings In among the machines That are filled with emptiness Erected with greed And maybe someday… Maybe someday I’ll find someone Who I can share this message with But then with just one other what will I do WHAT CAN WE DO To bring this earth back to life

Hate is the passion of the killing And the killing keeps them away Death is a blessing coming to them But you must keep death at bay Pain signals some thing to be doing Pain signals their weakness Aggression shows the power surging in you It shows you they're not fearless Crush them between hammer and stone Why not? The fools struck first Slice the flesh and snap apart bone Show them you're blade's the worst Crush them between hammer and stone Why not? The quickest change Slice the flesh and snap apart bone Show them the strength of rage To take a life in self-defense But when do you begin? When every act is an offense How else can you live? Kill them or you will be killed Take no chances strike now Read those eyes see their intent They expect you to bow All their kind they are the same Take no chances strike now Tall and small, they are the same Kill before they learn how When you're down, they beat you down No helping hand Only reach to choke you Ain't no helping hand When you're up, they use you All in the plan Feed to poison you Ain't no helping hand They write their songs with your tears And sell them back to you They drain your passions bone dry Then sell them back, They give- Only what it takes to meet their own success None will give you power unless it will give them more Charity, dependency, they're laughing at you Betrayal is business for the many and the few Power's relative to the powerless Oppress or be oppressed Weak eat propaganda from the powerful Oppress and be oppressed Fight their mundane void just long enough To burn it all away Do all you can to be strong enough To dig the grandest grave Crush them between hammer and stone Why not? They forged your chains Slice the flesh and snap apart bone Show them the darkest day Crush them between hammer and stone Why not? The only way Slice the flesh and snap apart bone Show them you're unafraid To take a life in self-defense But when do you begin? When every act is an offense How else can you live? Kill them or you will be killed Take no chances strike now Read those eyes see their intent They expect you to bow All their kind they are the same Take no chances strike now Tall and small, they are the same Kill before they learn how When you're down, they beat you down No helping hand Only reach to choke you Ain't no helping hand When you're up, they use you All in the plan Feed to poison you Ain't no helping hand They sing of glory We'll sing of death They sing of sorrow We'll sing of death We have unlocked our destiny None may, nay can, resist They've burned long, hard, now it's time to burn out Close Universe in a fist And then you die alone

I am the enemy and that's a fact In effect, I am the final foe of all of life But none should feel the need to fear me or resist I am your salvation, together we transcend No more, the pain and lethargy of mortal flesh No more, the emptiness of endless life The gods never found peace The Harpist, he was weak VizilV has found the key Together we'll break free I am the shadow, the end I, in my fist I grip all life To live is to feel pain I am the way I am one who sees what we all are A disease, upon our selves, upon the Earth Kill for country, kill for faith, kill for peace But you fail to finish the job I hate how you blame the weak I hate how you blame the strong You know you all are really most pathetic I am that voice in side True strength comes from turning round the other way and Turning on your own kind I am the shadow, the end I, in my fist I grip all life To live is to feel pain I am the way Purity has failed, progress has failed Control, there is a way You can see it all through history, our legacy of impotence All things must end, including space and time You give people an order, they shun that order They make a new order and then break that too Break their nature's rules before they understand them You waste what you're given and you're bound to lose I hate how you blame the weak I hate how you blame the strong No more, the pain and lethargy of mortal flesh No more, the emptiness of endless life You fool, you coward, you worm, you human I kill the killer, I kill the user I kill the abuser, though you love the abuse I kill the liar, I kill the suicidal I kill you before you become one too I am the shadow, the end I, in my fist I grip all life To live is to feel pain I am the way I am the way

Lust is a vice, love is untrue So why can't I stop feeling for you? My honor swells, I serve it well But I take pleasure serving you too What's a body, case for the mind Yet in desire I am confined I shall kill it, prove this to you To suit the new world we've designed (refrain) Perfect, the shell, the source so cold Though it is the one that has taken the world I strayed from the light to be with you This winter is not mine, freeze for you, yes I do We've toiled for strength, we've earned our place Became the most deadly of time, space You punish them, I weave their end Yet my eyes focus upon your face This is the plan: all sacrificed So why can't I drop this putrid vice All shall be gone, but I'm holding on As if there's some higher price [Refrain] A state of emptiness... A state of emptiness... Emulate what comes next... A state of nothingness... Yet your name is on my lips... Yet your rune is on my hand... This poison left in me, must be Residues of my former self... Lust is a vice, love is untrue So why can't I stop feeling for you? My honor swells, I serve it well But I take pleasure serving you too Even the strength of the last god can't Must be some joke, what did you implant I strayed from the light to be with you Yet you hide from me your secrets, why, you won't grant-

about

This is Shyft's fifth full-length album tremendously expanded and reimagined in to a concept album exploring the character of Feind, one of the major antagonists of Shyft's speculative fiction trilogy, Shyfted Dreaming. This aggressive and vengeful shadow of the protagonist follows in the foot steps of his predecessor, The Harpist, and as such is obsessed with the liberation of a suicidal negative utilitarianism, or the elimination of suffering via the extermination of existence.

The atmosphere here is that of rage and horror, reflecting Feind's hyper-focused perspective on the endless reaches of human violence as well as the violence and darkness Feind adopts to cope with a cold, insane world. Lyrical content expresses Feind's isolation and feelings of betrayal buried in hatred, pride, and spite masquerading as justice.

The character Feind was a product of the author's own fear of and hatred toward the world at a young age, and writing the character as an antagonist was a way to face it. There is a wide variety of samples taken from non-music inspirations at the time, mostly psychological thrillers and horror movies of the late 1990s and early 2000s, functioning here as mirrors of Shyft's own torment and securing the album in its history.

The original version was produced in 2003. In 2015 work began on this version and its companion album. Five years later, it's finally ready for a real release.

The companion album, [Shyft], is similarly a concept album, but a rebuttal to Feind's hatred.

about

Shyft Denver, Colorado

This is Shyft’s gabber/hardcore/breakcore/drill’n’bass project. Distorted heavy bass kicks, thick synths, and powerful melodies are the aim here- unless it’s chopped up progressive percussion. Influences come from many places, and not just the gabber or brain dance scene. It ranges from techno, trance and house genre classes to organic genre classes such as folk and metal. ... more
